Your thoughts, whether positive or negative, affect everything in your life.
Your mood, your immune system, & your ability to face challenges &
succeed. Your thoughts can actually change your brain chemistry, affecting
energy, sleep, focus, coping skills, interactions with your network,
productivity & overall well-being.
Here are some tips that can help develop a positive mindset.
-Touch base with your priorities regularly, so you can set your course correctly. If you
affirm your intentions daily to remain positive, you’ll find it easier to do. Making a
realistic list of your goals will help remind you. & keep you feeling motivated.
-Find ways to keep your emotions accessible, but in check. Try using the technique
of the Power of 3 to help. Acknowledging reality, then changing what you can &
releasing the rest are vital to staying positive. You control more than you realize. Tap
into to that to feel more confident, & less victimized.
-Some form of concentrated, focused relaxation is an important tool in staying
positive. Find the one that works for you: meditation, yoga, prayer, or natural
grounding are good ideas. Deeper breathing produces better physical & mental
responses needed in maintaining a healthier positivity.
-Use imagery to see the glass half full, & finding the Gift By The Door. Try using a
collection of beautiful photos to promote seeing things positively. It sounds
simplistic, but it actually works in developing positivity. Beautiful shorelines, golden
sunlight through the trees, photos of people or places that soothe your soul, & help
you appreciate the better, brighter parts of any situation.
-As we always mention, your surroundings matter. That means connecting with
people who promote positivity in their own lives, & will support positivity in yours. The
simple concept is-negativity promotes negativity, just as positivity sustains positivity.
