12 Ways To Think More Positively

positive affirmationsBy Alex Chris | ManageYourLifeNow.com

Positive thinking is perhaps the best way to deal with stress and cope with difficult situations. There are several practical ways through which we can bring positive feelings to our lives and 12 of them are described below.

1. Get involved in activities that bring pleasure

Pleasure can reverse the negative feelings and makes us more resistant to them.

Try out activities that calm the soul like hiking, taking a warm bath, listening to music, relaxing under the sun (the sunlight produces vitamin D which seems to be associated with seasonal depression), eating a nice meal, and hanging out with friends.

We can also get pleasure through challenging activities like sports, music, art, dancing and voluntarism.

2. Believe in yourself

Focus on your positive experiences, the present, the positive attributes of your character, the good things in your lives, to what you already have, to what you have achieved so far and to how well you feel with yourself.

The more you feel that your contribution in this world is important, the more you can find a meaning in life.

3. Be happy and enjoy the positive experiences without guilt

What does it mean to allow ourselves to enjoy the positive experiences without guilt? It simply means to:

  • Enjoy a good meal without having to think about calories or the extra fat.
  • To enjoy a trip to the country without thinking about the things we have to do tomorrow.
  • To play with our child and get dirty without worrying how we will get rid of the stain.

4. Smile as much as you can

The human brain does not distinguish the difference between a genuine and a fake smile. Thus, when someone is faking a smile, his brain responds in the same way that it would have responded if he had been truly smiling!

5. Be creative!

Explore your creativity and put it into action. Creativity brings greater satisfaction and mental exaltation.

We need to recognize our creative dreams and follow them. It is necessary to find the practical ways through which we will live our dreams together with those we love and put them into practice.

Someone can be creative by making a painting, preparing a beautiful dinner, planting flowers, decorating their home, etc. Of course the important thing is to enjoy what we are doing.

6. Hang out with positive thinkers

Seek to socialize with people who are happy and have a positive approach and avoid all those who bring out a bad vibe. Sociability, in its positive meaning, and a wide network of friends increase the satisfaction levels in our lives.
