How To Reprogram Your Mind (for Positive Thinking)
12 Ways to Instantly Become a More Positive Person
While learning how to be more positive is more challenging for some, anyone can pick up the skills required to get there. These 12 tips will train your brain to look on the bright side—and possibly change your life in the process. It might feel strange at first, but talking to yourself is an easy trick that can help. To get comfortable doing this, try creating a positive personal mantra. Ever found yourself lost in a loop of worry and concern? Learning to recognize those thoughts for what they are—just thoughts—can aid you in pulling yourself together. Cut yourself some slack when something crappy—losing a job, undergoing a breakup, or experiencing trauma—happens in your life.
Have you wondered if learning how to be positive is going to make any difference? Positive thinking is not just some woo-woo new age thinking. It is something that has been around for a very, very long time. This timeless and scientifically proven wisdom can and will change your life. By the time you get off the phone, you are carrying around the energies of hurt, anger and bitterness! You spend the rest of the day in a funk.
To be more positive, try to set aside some time every day to do activities that make you happy and reduce stress, like listening to your favorite music, reading a good book, or spending time with your friends and family. Also, whenever you catch yourself feeling down or getting worked up over something insignificant, try to redirect your attention toward something important in your life that makes you happy.
P ositivity is choosing to see the bright side of life. It is seeing the good in people, even when we have to search really, really hard for it. And it is about trusting ourselves. I guess it all comes down to this: even with pain, sorrow, and evil, there is always good, and that, friends, is what we should focus our energy on. On the contrary, negativity is about finding fault and worry in people and situations. I used to think that if I shared my hardships, people would think I was being negative.
But the physical and mental benefits of positive thinking have been demonstrated by multiple scientific studies. A positive mindset can give you more confidence, improve your mood, and even reduce the likelihood of developing conditions such as hypertension, depression and other stress-related disorders. You can define positive thinking as positive imagery, positive self-talk or general optimism, but these are all still general, ambiguous concepts. How you start the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. Have you ever woken up late, panicked, and then felt like nothing good happened the rest of the day?
