    It is just thinking. Don't fight it. Just let it be. Accept it as part of yourself..you will find that it will dissipate on it's own.

    Start counting your blessings.  While I agree with msorensson, counting my blessings generally makes me get over negative thinking a bit quicker.

    ...Create a mental diversion, encounter a change of scenery, find some alone time, renew old hobbies, resort back to nature, or gain a new mentality via a change of lifestyle, blah, blah.  That is, of course, if you're not positively negative with a justified reason, as that's simply called "dealing with the hand you are dealt with."  ...But most of all, be yourself without the excuses for a positive or negative way of thinking, as the rest should run its course by way of "cause and effect."

    In my opinion, meditation helps one to avoid negative thoughts. You'll be surprised to observe the sea of change that happens in your mind once you start meditating.

    It has happened to me (I was never a very negative person though but we are after all human beings) and I can't explain in  mere words the benefits that I have gained through meditation.

    Happiness and peace of mind that each one of us crave for in life creep into our mind effortlessly through this wonderful technique.

    My present state of mind is such that I can bravely face any adverse situation and have the confidence to overcome it come what may. I think this attitude is very helpful and is very much essential in our life.

    I have been reading some of Byron Katie's books recently which have been really helpful with this. She talks about 'making friends' with our thoughts (negative and positive) rather than trying to stop or elminiate negative thoughts. She also talks about  enquiring into them i.e. asking are they true? to help gain some mastery.
