So many studies have shown that positivity is the key to a healthy and happy life. But do you really know what it means to be positive and how to incorporate that great attitude into your daily life? It’s a process, indeed, but you’ll be amazed when you do, that each little positive trait you adapt will improve your life so much…Here are some of my positivity faves:
o Get centered. Take a few moments to meditate, deep breathe or to reflect on your life. Try keeping a gratitude journal and write a few lines in it each morning.
o Smile: Just think that something that brings you joy, can be passed along with a smile to someone else. And a smile can really brighten someone’s day. Wake up with a smile, and it may be your day that gets better. Try it regardless of how tired you are, no matter how little sleep you got, no matter how much you’re dreading some aspect of your day.
o Think of something that makes you happy and you’ll have a reason to put a smile on your face. Again, what brings you joy could become contagious!
o Think of your personal goal or intention and come up with an image or phrase that reminds you of it and tape it to the ceiling or place it beside your bed; here every morning, your first act is looking at it and feeling it.
o Pass along a positive thought to someone else like a prayer or other positive thought.
o Just give thanks for what you have: experience gratitude. Instead of allowing your mind to focus on all you have to get done, why not guide your mind to express gratitude for all the wonderful things that you have.
o Watch the movie, “Patch Adams” or some other movie about laughter and positivity in life…
By following the previously mentioned tips you are sure to have a life without depression.
