Having a positive outlook, and overcoming negative thoughts and emotions does not always come naturally. But becoming positive, optimistic person can improve your quality of life and increase your lifespan. If you looking to reap the benefit of a happier, healthier lifestyle, here are five ways you can be a more positive person.
Surround Yourself with positive people.
A wise person one said,” you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with. It’s important to choose the people you surround yourself with, and to ensure that they bring out the best in you, that they lift you up in difficult moments and are a positive force in your life. Negative people are toxic, and can mood and inform your outlook of life, and how you see yourself. Life is short, surround yourself with positive people, and inspire you to be the best version of yourself.
One way to manage negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones is to practice gratitude. Practicing gratitude never fails to provide and cut dry dose of perspective. What ultimately matters most in life is not what happens, but how you react to it. When you are feeling frustrated, or are in a dark place, think of what you are grateful for. It will usually quell your frustration and some of your sadness and will help generate positivity when you are feeling low.
Do something nice for someone.
One of the fastest way to feel better about yourself and to produce instant positivity is to do something nice for someone. Whether is to give some time or money to the charity or do something thoughtful for a family or a friend, doing some good will always make you feel better, and help reassure you that everything is going to be alright.
Stop the negative self talk.
One of the most unproductive way to deal with a difficult situation is to come down hard on yourself. You are the person you spend the most time with, you need to build yourself up and treat yourself well- the way you will treat a loved one. You need to surround yourself with positive people. But you will never be truly happy and content unless you can manage your negative self talk, and produce your own positive energy.
Do not wait for a major milestone celebration: Did you hit a deadline? Go to the gym. Finally do everything you ever wanted to do for a long time. Life is not about major moments, it’s about everyday, and if you do not take a moment to celebrate your everyday accomplishments and joys in life, you are only savouring a small, small fraction of your life and, that is no way to live.
