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.

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.
