Positive mind. Positive vibes. Positive life. How wonderful does that sound!? And, it’s not difficult to achieve. Here are 4 tips to help you increase the positivity in your life.
Smiling is really important. If you walk around NYC, you’d be surprised how many people don’t smile. Too many people have a permanent frown on and that isn’t cool. You want to be happy, right? So start by looking it.
2. Do Something Nice For Someone Else
Kindness is contagious. So is karma. Try something new and indulge in a random act of kindness. If you do something nice for someone else, it makes your day better, and theirs. The person you’re being nice to is (hopefully!) likely to continue the kindness. On Friday’s, I’m a fan of buying coffee for the person behind me in line at Starbucks. They’re usually so surprised and excited that their day automatically starts off with positive vibes.
3. Think Nice Thoughts
Make an effort to only think nice thoughts. When you focus on the good things in your life, you’re setting yourself up for success. Think about what you love most about yourself. What’s the most exciting thing happening in your personal life? What would your friends say is your best quality? What do people like most about working with you? Increase the positivity in your life by realizing how great you are and portraying it to those around you.
4. Surround Yourself With Optimism
Look at who your friends are. Are they supportive? Are your friends good people? Do they encourage you to better yourself? When you surround yourself with people who enhance your life, it’s easy to be an optimist.
