Positive Thinking

Life can easily get the best of us sometimes and as easy as it is to just throw our hands in the air and say f*$%! this, that isn’t how situations get resolved. I am typically a positive person, and look at situations with a glass half full kind of mindset, however, I am also known to waaayy overthink sometimes, and blow things out of proportion. Most of the time when this happens, I break down, start crying immediately and over analyze the information that made me, so quickly, upset. Then, as soon as things become more clear, I question why I didn’t just stay calm in the first place; most of the time, it’s not worth freaking out over.

So here are a few of my personal tips that I have found work best for me to keep calm, and stay positive.

Smile…

I know, this is so generic; but it’s true! If you feel down, or upset about something, moping around with a frown on your face is only going to intensify your negative feelings. Put a smile on your face and you will immediately feel yourself start to think about reasons to keep that smile on your face.

All while getting your thoughts away from the stressful, bad ones.

Compliment someone…

I don’t know about you, but making others feel good, makes me feel good! We live in a world full of competition, so why not make someone feel equal. Make someone feel good, compliment their hair, personality, laugh, whatever it is. This will also help those who are around you to feel a more positive energy, thus surrounding you with better, brighter energy.

Write…

Sometimes, you just don’t know how you’re feeling, and you just have a million thoughts at once that just can’t seem to make it out of your head through words. I have multiple different friends who I go to to vent about different situations, and sometimes, when I can’t think of what I would say, or how I would vent, letting out emotions through paper and pen is the best way to clear those thoughts.

Wake up with positive intentions…

So you had a bad yesterday, don’t wake up and bring those thoughts into today. Wake up with good thoughts, think about all of the accomplishments you had the day before, tell yourself you are going to have a great day, and guess what? You’re going to have a great day!

Start your day with things that make you happy…

If you love coffee or tea, take some time to make sure you get at least one cup in before you start your day. If you love talking with your best friend, mom, sister, boyfriend, whoever it may be, give them a call before your day starts. When you start the day off with something that makes you feel good, you will unintentionally continue to be positive through the day. It is easy to stop and remember how amazing your morning was, and to continue it on into the rest of your day.

Support others…

Life isn’t a race, so it is so important to cheer on the accomplishments of those who are in your life. Amazing new accomplishments don’t always happen everyday, but it is important to be there for others because then they will be there to celebrate you when your time comes.

Forgive and forget…

Living in the past gets you nowhere. Many of us can easily find ourselves worried about the future because of the unknown, and due to scary pasts. Think about it, everyone has hard times, but it’s how you handle them, and use them to move forward. Don’t dwell on past relationships, schoolwork, jobs, events. You have to learn to forgive the situation, understand what you learned from it, and take that knowledge to get you further.

Love…

Love is what makes the world go ’round. Without love, the world would be a deep, dark place. Learning to love is learning to be vulnerable, trusting, and caring for others. When you give love, you receive love.

There is always something up my sleeve on how to be positive, feel free to email or message me if you ever need some motivation, or just your thoughts on the above topics! I’m always willing to share. Xx
