How to stay positive: 7 smart habitsby Jessica Morgan TaskQue
In the age we currently exist, situations are technical and in such circumstances, positivity is not a want; it is a need; a requirement for individuals to enjoy life to the fullest.
Stay tuned till the end to know how to stay positive with 7 smart habits.
1. Try to find the most positive outcome in everything:
I know this might sound cliched but hear me out, we often neglect the fact that there are always two sides to a story. We ignore the positives and focus more on the negative aspects. Whether its school, office, a relationship or life in general, the way your thoughts flow depends greatly on how you choose to view the circumstances you are in.
Even if the situation seems dark, there's always something positive waiting for you at the end of the tunnel.
2. Change the environment
Do you feel agitated most of the time? Are your irritation levels off the charts lately?
One possible reason why you’re always on the edge can be that your environment breeds negativity. The people you interact with and the way they treat you decide how your thoughts pan out but it shouldn’t be this way.
Simply, change the environment and make it comfortable to the extent where it soothes you and instils a wave of positivity.
Negative people can be a major cause for concern; they increase chances of you becoming toxic as well—which is a terrible trait to catch on to because let’s face it: nobody enjoys the company of toxic people!
3. Take it nice and slow
Life’s too fast and you’ve recently learned how to walk, I get it but if you can’t walk fast just reduce the settings. Don’t be too harsh on yourself and learn to focus on one task at a time.
Know that multitasking does NOT fit everyone and is not a requirement because:
1. It exhausts you
2. Makes you unhappy
3. You begin comparing your difficult life to others who have simpler routines
What will these points lead to? Ah, yes. Negativity.
Now you know what to do.
4. Help others to help yourself
Filling someone else’s life with joy will allow you to develop a personality where you feel incomplete without sharing. Soon, you will surround yourself with people who think alike because those who actively share out of empathy will befriend you sooner or later and this will reduce the loneliness that may be a cause for negativity.
Ever heard of hitting three birds with one stone? Well, now you have!
5. Don’t be a snail
‘Don’t settle down and sit in one place. Move around, be nomadic, make each day a new horizon.’
As Jon Krakauer explains, staying idle or cramped up in your safe zone will only birth negative thoughts. Seek interest in the world by going out. Look at the sky, scan the waters, witness the crowd and be on the lookout for something enticing. This will help you to develop a mindset where you can craft fortified walls to defend against negativity in every situation.
6. Discover yourself
Are you a painter? An actor? Or a writer, just like me? But who will answer these questions? It is you who had the answers all along! Think of yourself as an infinite body of water; dive deep and ask yourself questions you’ve always had the answer to and arrive at dazzling conclusions and to realize that hey, life isn’t all that gloomy.
7. Take criticism with a cup of tea
It is just a statement, relax. It shouldn’t ruin your day or even disturb your mood. Take what’s necessary out of criticism and throw the rest in the trash can.
At the end of the day you’re your judge; decide what’s best and once you make the decision, stand by it and make it happen!
