Be more positive

Try this to instantly be more positive today!

Our theme this month is BEING POSITIVE.

I love this quote on being positive by Jo Eckler, PsyD, an Austin-based therapist and author of I Can’t Fix You—Because You’re Not Broken:

“The most helpful definition of being positive is having hope and confidence in one’s ability to handle what’s tough, along with remembering that nothing is all negative all the time.”

But being positively is usually much easier said than done.

So here are some tips to instantly be more positive today:

1. When painful situations arise, be kind to yourself

When you have compassion with yourself in difficult circumstances, you recognise that being imperfect and experiencing life’s challenges is inevitable. None of us can get through life without the ups or the downs. So we can either make it harder for ourselves to get through the lows, or be kind to ourselves in those moments, and get up stronger on the other side.

2. Start Conversations with a Positive thought

Words are powerful. They can either build up, or break down. So start with positive words. Jump starting a conversation with a positive statement can set the tone for the whole conversation.

3. Practice Gratitude daily

Research has proven that people who keep a gratitude journal are happier and more optomistic people. It makes sense if you think about it. If you start every day meditating on the good things in your life, that is what you will be thinking about and focusing on all day long. Daily gratitude is a powerful way of directing your mindset.

4. Get outside!

Getting outside into the fresh air has been proven to be stress relieving. It also boosts positivity and creativity. Experts say spending as little as 17 minutes outside every day can greatly enhance your feeling of wellbeing. 

5. Give to others

Whether you volunteer at a charity, do random acts of kindness, or just cook a meal for an elderly neighbour or friend, giving to others helps move our perspective away from all of our own troubles. It helps you to see how much you actually do have instead of focusing on what you don’t have or what’s going wrong in your life. 

So maybe positivity isn’t necessarily something we are born with, but something we can cultivate.

I hope you have a POSITIVE day!
