16 Ways to Positive Thinking

Positive Thinking

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Positivity is seeing the positives in a negative situation. When you or other people are going through a tough time, it is recognising that there are reasons to be positive and grateful.

However, negativity is seeing the faults in situations and people. It is concentrating on the things that went wrong when things did go right.

Rather than seeing the negatives, you can make yourself feel good by training yourself to see the positives in people and every situation.

Positivity is one of the most important assets you can have. Because positive thoughts produce positive results, positive people have success, happiness and good relationships, your thoughts are powerful.

Ways to Bring Positivity into Your Life

#1. Believe that good times will happen

You need to fully believe in those good things you wish to happen, otherwise they may not happen.

#2. Practice gratitude

Daily practicing of gratitude can have a powerful positive effect on your mind.

#3. Eat healthy food

When people eat healthy they feel good. Instead of having a soda/soft drink, have a juice, your mind and body will thank you for it.

#4. Do things that make you feel good

Get outside in nature, listen to your favourite music. When we do things that make us feel good, we tend to feel positive.

#5. Meditate

Meditation can clear your mind and relax you to help push out the negativity.

#6. Believe that you are going to have a good day

When we start our day believing that we are going to have a good day, we usually do have a good one.

#7. Perform acts of kindness

When we are kind to other people, we feel good about ourselves.

#8. Make a box filled with kind messages and letters

When you need some positivity in your life, you can reflect back on the contents of this box.

#9. Detach from the negativity in your life

Negativity brings us down. When we hang around positive people we feel good.

#10. Exercise regularly

When we go for a brisk walk our feel good hormones are produced, which means that we are going to be more positive.

#11. Find things that make you laugh or even smile

You can find videos on youTube, google funny images or even watch a comedy movie or show that will make you laugh or smile.

#12. Say positive affirmations daily

Repeating affirmations out loud to yourself can have a powerful effect on you. As well as writing them down. Examples to use are ‘I am worthy’ and ‘I am enough’.

#13. Forgive yourself and others

There is no good in not forgiving. When we forgive we find relief and happiness.

#14. Practice mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness can help you to be aware of your thoughts and feelings, and to manage them in a positive way.

#15. Write in a journal

Journal writing is a great way to clear your emotions and mind, which helps bring on positive thoughts.

    I love the ideas you’ve given. I like to journal but I don’t do it everyday like I should. I like the affirmations too.
