Surround yourself with positive people. The more you surround yourself with positive people, the more likely you are to pick up on their energy and start thinking positively yourself.
Smile and think positive
Smile and laugh every day. It is hard to be negative when you are smiling from ear to ear. Did you know that the simple act of smiling has a huge impact on your mind and body. Just smile in your car, at work, to strangers, at work, when you are with your family or friends. You can even smile when you are alone. The next time you notice yourself thinking negative thoughts, force yourself to smile or laugh out loud. You will see how it will quickly change your thoughts and mood. Smile to strangers and you will see they will smile back at you.
Believe in yourself
Never doubt yourself, trust your instincts and always have faith in yourself. Don’t let anybody tell you what you can do and what not. You know where your strengths are. Don’t do the same things others are doing just to fit in. Build your own personality.
- I am grateful to have a family
- I am grateful to have true friends
- I am grateful to be employed
- I am grateful to have the capacity to see the sun and the moon
- I am grateful to sleep in a bed
I remind myself of these things throughout the day and before I go to bed. Give it a try. You will find that your life seems a lot more cheerful when you remind yourself of the good in it. Practicing gratefulness is an awesome way to think positive.
Enjoy the moment
Enjoy the moment – Focus on what is happening at the moment. Use your five senses to appreciate your life and pay attention to what surrounds you and the people you are with. Too often, our minds are filled with regrets, doubts or fear of the future. We forget that we can live in the moment. Each moment is a new beginning and a chance to start over. Keep this in mind and you will feel more happy, for sure!
