Another name for reframing is cognitive restructuring. It is a technique that encourages changing your personal point of view without distorting the facts.
Reframing is looking at a situation or an event from a different, more positive perspective.
Reframing doesn't imply denying the seriousness of the situation, it just gives us a more positive outlook.
Going from a negative to positive viewpoint can have incredible benefits.
Identify situations or events that are bothering you, then challenge those circumstances by looking at them from a more positive view point.
Every person has their own beliefs and perspective on how the world works. This is developed naturally based on our values, past experiences, or other factors. These "default frames" are responsible for how we think, feel, and react. With cognitive reframing we can take our thought process into our own hands by opening our minds to different ways of thinking.

Make sure you are not ignoring a serious real problem when using this technique. For example when you have a health issue go see a doctor instead of reframing.
