Are you tired of seeing the glass as half empty rather than half full?
Then, this article is for you….
Regardless of the situation, it’s natural to have self-defeating thoughts or negative thoughts. However, if you are having these pesky thoughts than usual, then it’s time to do some alterations in your thinking pattern. Psychology has suggested a miraculous tool called Reframing or cognitive reframing to make changes in your thinking pattern.
What is Reframing?
Reframing is a psychological technique that consists of identifying and then changing the way situations, experiences, events, ideas, and/or emotions are viewed. Cognitive reframing is the process by which such situations or thoughts are challenged and then changed.
There are two types of reframing that you can use to get advantages in any situation in life.
The first type is Context Reframing which means, taking something that seems
upsetting or undesirable as an advantage in another context.
As an example, if you lost your job, you are in pursuit of new and better jobs. You might even try to start your own business to recover from the situation. This will eventually lead to finding the undiscovered potential within you.
The Second method is Content Reframing which is changing the meaning of any situation. It’s like finding positivity in any situation.
This is the game changer and the most helpful technique that makes you happy and satisfied all the time.
Benefits of Reframing
- Change your perception
We tend to see some things based on how we have perceived them in the past. When you use reframing strategies to cope with any challenging situation in life, it gives us a good opportunity to ask questions like, “Is there another way to look at this situation? or What are the other possible reasons this could have happened?” before we take actions on anything which may occur some misfortune.
- Give positive results in any event in life
Despite the situation, when you apply the reframing strategy, you can cultivate the results that benefit you. That means, even in bad situations, there is something that gives you advantages.

This is the ultimate benefit of the reframing strategy. When you see the positivity in everything, there is nothing that makes you unhappy.
