Radiating positivity and happiness can transform any dull day into a better one. While there are many steps that you can do to bring in more positivity into your life, the real first step begins with you.
From embracing positive affirmation to learning to let go, the journey to a better lifestyle begins here.
1. Keep a positive circle of friends
Remember when entrepreneur Jim Rohn once said that we are the average of five people we meet every day? The same applies to the energy we surround ourselves with. To keep your positive spirit up, filter out the negative people in your life and embrace the ones who motivate and encourage you to be the best version of yourself.
2. Embrace positive affirmation
It’s important not to be too hard on yourself. Everyone makes mistakes and creating a positive lifestyle is about how you manage this mishaps and hiccups. Instead of groaning on a Monday morning, embrace the power of positive affirmation and say that today will be a great one and you’re excited about what life has in store for you.
3. Breathe and let go
Holding on to negativity and sadness will do more harm than good. It’s burdensome to bottle up your feelings and frustrations. Choose happiness and learn to let go of your mistakes and mishaps. Freeing yourself from worries will liberate you and open your eyes to the beautiful things around you.
4. Treat yourself once in awhile
Instead of being your own worst critic, be the best cheerleader of yourself. Every little thing in your life is worth celebrating. Pat yourself on the back when your manager complimented you on a job well done, or treat yourself to your favourite ice cream when you ticked off every task in your to-do lists.
5. Kick start the habit of exercising
The relationship between happiness and exercise is amazing. The main benefits of exercising are the increase of endorphin levels and a decrease in stress hormones. Going for a morning jog in your neighbourbood park is enough to rejuvenate your soul and revitalise your strength. You can also enjoy a round of yoga in your living room or fast-paced aerobics at home.
