Start a gratitude journal
A gratitude journal is a great way to feel more positive in your life. You can fill this in right when you wake up, just before you go to sleep, or at any point in the day. The point of this is to think of aspects of your life or your day that you are grateful for. It is a good chance to reflect and can change your way of thinking to be more positive. When you sit and realize how great many aspects of your life is, you will feel less worried about other things. There are many gratitude journals you can buy, or you can just use a normal notebook, it is up to you.
Think about what might be causing negative feelings
There are many reasons that you might be feeling negative and it could be an internal feeling about something that makes you feel worse about everything else. If you are feeling down about your smile, for example, you could get clear braces for adults. Or if you feel conscious about your skin you could speak to a dermatologist. These are little things that might subconsciously be bothering you and once they get sorted you find that you feel much more positive in all aspects of your life.
Count to five before you say something negative
It can be very easy to say something negative without even thinking. Next time you hear a negative thought pop into your head and consider whether it is something you actually want to say. Think about if it will make anyone feel happier or better about themselves and what the point of the comment is. This can help you to see if you are saying something just for the sake of it or if you really feel that way. You should also try not to generalise, for example, “this house is always so messy!” or “You kids are always so naughty!” This can help to reaffirm something. Instead, just address the issue in hand at that current moment.
These are just a few ways that you can be more positive in your life. By implementing these you will soon find that things are much better for you both mentally and physically. You will have a much better outlook and by not sweating the small stuff, will find you are a lot less stressed. What are some ways you are more positive? Let me know, I would love to hear from you!
