Fill Your Life with Positivity with These Simple Tips.
Most of us have a lot of stress in our lives today. Some of it is due to the fast-paced society that we live in and some of it is self-inflicted due to who and what we choose to spend our time with. The fact is, misery loves company. If you want to live a positive and happy life, surround yourself with positive things and positive people. The more positive energy you manifest into the world, the more positive you’ll get back.
Set Specific Goals for Yourself
We’ve talked about Goals before, yes? Whether your goals have to do with diet, exercise, business,or self care, set realistic and specific goals that have a timetable so that you know when you’re supposed to be done with the goal. Write down the goal and the steps that you’ll take to reach the goal. Then add it to your calendar. Alternately, just make a “To-Do” list. Feeling accomplished will automatically make you feel more positive.
Quit the Negative Self-Talk
If you want more positivity in your life, start with the way that you talk to yourself. When you feel your mind go toward negative self-talk, change it around to positive. Instead of, “I am fat,” change your words to, “I am healthy and I am eating right to make myself even healthier.” Even if it’s not immediately true, the more you tell yourself it’s true, the more you’ll seek to make the behavior match the feeling.
Listen to Happy Music
Find the most uplifting and positive music that you can find and put it on your play list. Try listening to the positive and happy music at least once a day. If you can figure out what time of day you are generally prone to negativity, try listening to that music before that time comes.
Read a Lot of Happy and Positive Books
There is no shortage of positive books to read in the library or on Kindle. I’ve also been known to play a positive audio book in my car from time to time. Try to read or listen to one positive book each month. I’ll link to some of my favorites at the end of this post.
Find Positive People to Make Your Friends
Remember that positive people generally want to hang around with other positive people. Therefore, if you want to meet more people who fit that description, you’ll need to focus your thoughts and actions more on the positive than the negative. Otherwise you’ll turn them off and they won’t want to be around you, which could backfire on your new positive world.
Practice Daily Affirmations
Sometimes practicing affirmations seems corney and weird, but the truth is that it works. You can use the mirror to practice self-talk out loud, or you can use a journal to write down five good and positive thoughts every single day to help you focus your thoughts in a positive direction.
Reorganize and Decorate Your Home
If you currently live in disorganization and clutter it can be very difficult to think positively. Try to work on one room at a time to redesign your life so that your surroundings are uncluttered and attractive.
Surrounding yourself with positives is something that you absolutely can accomplish. Choose one thing at a time to work on, giving yourself a time limit on when you will accomplish adding every one of these positives to your life. You will be glad you did it.
