The Importance of Being Positive
It’s hard to stay positive all the time. Sometimes we’re frustrated or sad and it feels like we can’t seem to shake it off. But what if there were ways that we could create more light in our lives? What if the act of being positive could help us see the light and overcome difficult times?
1) Choose your words carefully. When you speak and when you write, choose words that are uplifting. It may not be easy at first but it becomes easier with practice. When you find yourself saying something negative about someone else or a situation, stop right then and replace your words with something more supportive. This is not only an act of kindness but will also help keep your energy light.
2) Be mindful of how you spend your time. Make sure that the activities you do during the day make you feel good rather than drained. If watching TV makes you anxious, take some time away from it and read a book instead. Or if Facebook makes you feel jealous or depressed, step away from social media and go outside. 3) Be generous with your words and actions. There are people who need encouragement every day so try sending them a card or telling them they’re doing a great job when they complete something important to them (e.g., I saw this picture on Instagram!
The Ripple Effect of Positivity
We all want a life that is meaningful and fulfilling. A life where we are able to help those in need. When we make a positive difference in someone’s day it creates the ripple effect which has the ability to change people’s lives. And just like that, our own lives are changed too! There are so many ways in which you can do good every day and make your world better one person at a time. It doesn’t have to be anything big or dramatic – sometimes just smiling at a stranger or telling someone they’re doing a great job can go such a long way.
Positivity in the Workplace
Work can be a grind. It is the routine that we have grown accustomed to and no matter how many times we say it’s getting better, it doesn’t seem like it will happen anytime soon. That’s where positivity comes in! It can be hard to maintain a positive attitude in the workplace but when you start focusing on things that make you happy or take your mind off of work all together then you are creating an atmosphere of light. When others feel this sense of light and happiness they naturally create their own by lighting their way out of work.
Positivity in Personal Relationships
One of the best gifts you can give someone is your time and attention. When we are with our friends and family, it’s important to try not to be distracted by our phone or other outside factors. When we’re present in a conversation and looking directly at them, they know that what they have said has had an impact on us and that their words are valued. The simple act of giving someone our undivided attention will make them feel seen and loved. It’s important for us all to take stock of how much time we spend being distracted from those around us in order to prioritize the relationships that mean the most.
Positivity in Everyday Life
I believe that positivity is a gift. It is something that should be celebrated and shared with the world. What we choose to focus on will either bring us joy or sadness, but it’s up to us as individuals what we want our lives to look like. I am so grateful for my life and my family. I want them all around me as much as possible because they are the ones who make me feel most alive and happy. No matter how difficult things may seem in the moment, there will always be good in your future if you’re willing to work hard enough for it. If you are struggling with depression or other mental illness, please know that you are not alone and there is help available if you need it.
