Thinking positively is an art that is worth mastering. It can make all the difference in the world in a mind and a body of a person, so it’s crucial for everyone to learn how you can practice positivity and mindfulness.
Tricking Your Mind into Positivity
- Stop negative thoughts in the very beginning.
That sounds really complicated, but it’s possible. Change your grounds each time when you feel that you’re falling again. Push those negative thoughts aside. Say “stop” to your mind when you feel that you’re worthless or can’t do something. Cork that feeling and prove yourself you can.
- Physical training can be your salvation. There are many people who go to the gym or go running whenever they feel bad. That is because moving and sports produces chemicals in our system that allow us feel better. It also can help you with your self-esteem a lot and you’d be surprised how many issues people have just because of low self-esteem.
- Drink cold water.
Even though cocoa and cuddling in your blanket feels good when those negative thoughts haunt you, it’s much better to drink something cold. Cold water will bring you some refreshment and help your mind stay in line.
- Don’t think of opinions of other people.
Take some action to stop doing this. Stop looking for acknowledgement or an approving look. The world doesn’t spin around you and people have their own things to take care of. If you stop thinking of the possible reactions of others, you can breathe in freely and be much happier.
5 Small Changes in Life That Can Make Your Happier
- Destroy the clutter.
When everything around you is a mess and you can’t clean it up, you feel stressed. Actually, even if you like some chaos at your work place, it’s still stressing you out inside. Try to clean up your house, throw away things you don’t need and don’t clutter. Mental clutter counts too here. The best way for that is to meditate and learn to ditch thoughts aside.
- Start a journal.
You think you might hate it, but writing your thoughts, ideas and experiences down is a good practice. You can see what’s bothering you and what you need to change in life.
- Get up 30 minutes earlier.
This will allow you have some extra time and eliminate the hurry. You can let your tea brew longer, dress longer, have time for a proper breakfast, listen to a podcast, etc. This will calm you down and set the mood for the whole day.
- Say thank you more.
This will help you change the way of thinking and stay positive. Even when people don’t truly deserve graciousness, say it for yourself.
- Eat better.
Healthy eating makes a healthy body and that means a healthy mind. When you eat a lot of sweets or junk food, you can notice that your self-esteem drops and you feel worse. Eating better will stop that.
If you do those things as a practice, you’ll soon notice that everything gets better and brighter. You can be happy and happiness is a choice, but walking to that choice is up to you. With building healthy habits, you can stay fit both physically and spiritually.
