It’s very challenging to stay positive and happy all the time, especially if bad things happend in our lives or if we are going through a tough time. But trying to see the good things in our life will help us feel better and eventually make our life better and happier.
Im not a pro and Im not a phychologist either but I consider myself to be a very optimistic person and when I look back I realize that almost every dream I have ever had became true for me so far just because I try to think positive.
I would like to share with you some of my tips which help me through the bad times and make me feel happier, healthier, motivated and positive 🙂
I know this sounds clichee, but this is the first step. Without loving who you are, you can hardly be completely happy in your life. Focus on the things you like about yourself, and the ones you dont, try to improve them. But always remember, nobody is perfect so its ok if you feel like you are not. There is always plenty of people who loves exactly those things that you hate about yourself 🙂
2. Appreciate small things
Yes, it all starts from the bottom 🙂 I hope this is how you say it lol. Very helpfull is to write down anything that comes to your mind that you are grateful for. Even the basic things like to have home, health, family. Keep on doing it everyday and you will fill your mind with positive thoughts.
3. Dont judge
If you judge people, even if its only in your mind, you keep negative thoughts in your mind. It has negative influence only on you and not on the person who is being judged. Instead, try to earn some inspiration from it, which can enhance you in some way. And also keep only good vibes in your head 🙂
4. Look for a good thing in every situation
Every situation has bad and good sides of the story. Just like everything in our lives. Without “the bad” we wouldnt know what is “the good”, so it has to be like that. The only thing we can do is to try to find “the good” in that situation. Even when it seems horrible, just take a second a think what could it be. And even when it seems like there cant be any, there is always “lesson learned”. Yes, at least it teaches you some lesson, which might be very helpful for you in the future. You never know. Remember, glass is half full, not half empty.
5. Stay with people that makes you happy
Try to stay with people who has positive influence on you. Good vibes are very important, and if you surround yourself with negative people, the negativity will find you too.
