How to Free Yourself from the Clutches of Negativity w/Bernice Ross

We’re living in strange times, and lately it feels like doom and gloom has become everyone’s go-to state. When did negativity become our default, and how can we make the shift from pessimism to positivity?


A lot of the time, negativity comes down to mindset, and all it takes to get out of a funk is a willingness to change the way we think. We have to train our brains to be more optimistic, but how? 


What can we do to inject a more positive energy into our lives and get rid of the gloom for good? 


In this episode, Master Certified Coach and CEO of, Bernice Ross returns to the show to share how to rewire our minds and pave the way for more positivity. 


Your brain can’t focus on more than one thing at a time, so choose to focus on what you’re grateful for. -Bernice Ross


Three Things You’ll Learn in This Episode


  • Why we need to be more mindful of our thoughts: Our brains can only process one thought at a time, so when we tell ourselves we don’t want something to happen, we’re really saying we ‘want it- not’. By dwelling on the things we want to avoid, we’re only making them more likely to happen, so we have to be careful with where we send our energy. 
  • How to shift into a more upbeat mood when we’re feeling ‘off’ When our cerebral hemispheres aren’t firing at the same rate, we end up feeling out of sorts, but it’s easy to combat that. To get back into sync, all we have to do is blast some music that gets us snapping our fingers along with the beat. 
  • How to launch our days the right way: The way we start our mornings sets the tone for our entire day, so set aside time for a ‘power hour’. Identify 2 or 3 mood-boosting activities to do first thing in the morning, every day- and remember, those might look different for other people. The most important thing is to find what works best for us.
