06 Nov The Power of Positivity
The Power of Positivity! So easy to say, yet so difficult to develop and maintain. But you’re not to blame. Being positive in a world that operates in a disorderly, ambiguous, and pretty complicated manner can prove tricky. But maybe if you understood the power of positivity and things you could do to develop it, such as taking yourself on a spa retreat for yourself and taking the time to ensure you are performing self care, then you would be more willing to work towards it.
The Power of Positivity
Life is the creation of the mind. In other words, the thoughts that dominate your mind will project in your everyday life and will affect how others perceive you.
Consider this, when you were in kindergarten, you would draw something undecipherable and take so much pride in it. You would then show it to your parents, siblings, friends, and even teachers in excitement and glee. Even though it wasn’t impressive, they would celebrate it with you. Why? Because you believed and was positive it was good and as such, even those around you, perceived it that way.
In the same way, if you think positively, then even your life will be a happy one, and you’ll attract people with similar vibes. But if you consistently think of negative thoughts, these will take over your daily life, impair your occupational and social functioning and change how others view you.
Positivity helps us go beyond our limits. We view the glass as half full instead of empty and appreciate it as we work towards making it full. To sum it up, positivity makes us happy.
Note, this is not to say you will experience positive thoughts and happiness always. You will go through situations that drive you crazy and make you sad. You will experience failure and challenging times. However, positivity is acknowledging that there will be pain and struggle. Therefore, allow yourself to feel the sadness, the pain, and the struggle, but don’t let it take over you. During such times, look at the bright side.
As noted, developing positivity is easier said than done. But, there are several things that you could do to change your perception of life. Some of these include
Eat Healthily, Get Enough Sleep
Eating the right food, drinking healthy drinks makes you feel good about yourself, which in turn changes the way you view things.
So many are the times that we get caught up with our busy lives that we forget there’s more to life than work. That said, take time to treat yourself. Buy some cute clothes and shoes. Book a weekend getaway if you can afford it. If your schedule doesn’t allow, take a day off, book a desert hot spring spa, turn off your phone, and take a break from the world. Do this regularly, and enjoy the good things of life, so when tough times come, you’ll know that life is good, and such times are temporary.
Get Enough Sleep
Not getting enough sleep will not only make you fat but will also make you cranky and difficult for you to see things from a positive point of view. So get enough sleep to enhance positivity and better health.
Be Kind to Yourself
Don’t tell yourself things you wouldn’t want anyone else to say to you. Instead, be kind to yourself. Focus on things you can do instead of those you cannot. Give yourself daily affirmations. Tell yourself how good you are and surround yourself with positive people.
Choose to focus and appreciate the good times while they last instead of thinking of what may go wrong next. For instance, enjoy your mineral springs spa retreat instead of worrying about what may go wrong with your phone off.
