10 Habits You Should Take Up To Stay Positive
Every now and then we are exposed to the negative energy around us. What makes it sad was we couldn’t protect ourselves from these sources of negativity. But, with the below way, we can practice it and stay positive.
1. Positivity in negativity
Negativity, if implied properly, could turn into a form of positive energy to push you further. Look out for any optimistic point in the negative comments. Deep inside every negativity contains some forms of positivity for each of us to find. After all, we learn from the bad things that happened to ourselves.
2. Take your time
Whenever something negative falls upon you, take your time to let it pass. It helps to practice self-control and it plays a part of building up the positive energy in you. The time heals and it can build up your confidence to go against the negative remarks thrown upon you.
3. Don’t fear
Never show your fear of the negative forces. Like a prey, when fear is shown, they will surround you and captivate you in their dark energy. Be brave and continue doing what you believe in. You will see how the negative energy will be replaced by the positive aura.
4. Sharing the positivity
To keep the positive energy intact with you, spread the energy out. Add it in someone else’s life and let them recharge with that energy. Share this happiness and confidence with them and in turn it can build up positive thoughts and feelings in your own life. Let everyone be happy together!
5. Accepting criticism
Criticism actually helps in creating a positive value in yourself. Learn to take critiques in a healthy way. Take them as a way to make room for improvement, an idea of how to strive higher and better. Another way of taking criticism is implementing the thought that you are good enough to be noticed and lucky enough to be given a chance to do better.
6. Walk away
Walking away is not always bad. Take a headstart and walk away from the negative energy. You will start feeling as if you were dragged into the negative circle after staying in that circle for too long. Look out for a source of positive energy and stay there, inhale the good air instead.
Whenever you feel the negativity starting to cloud you, try self-hypnotising. List all of the good values in yourself, the achievements that you had made and the praises that were showered onto you. Believing in yourself is essential to being positive. Self-confidence is always the key to success.
8. Talk to someone positive
What you give you often get in return. If you talk positively to other people, it’s likely they will do the same for you. Spend time with a positive person. Let them share with you the positive values that they have in them and share your positive energy with them in return.
9. Read positive quotes
Find inspirational quotes and keep them in your journal or notepad. Whenever you start feeling down, flip through those quotes and slowly relate them to yourself. These quotes can eventually transmit the positive energy to yourself and keep you energized. Besides the quotes, inspirational videos or articles can be your medium to gain positive energy.
Exercising can help you stay positive. It can also help in removing stress. Exert yourself by running or spending time at the gym. With all the toxins leaving your body, you will find that the negative energy too running out from yourself. Not only can you stay positive, you can also stay healthy! How wonderful will that be?
7 Things Healthy People Do Every Morning
My alarm is set to the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. It’s impossible to not smile when this song plays. This, combined with the other habits below, set the tone for a productive, happy and healthy day.
1. Drink a glass of water as soon as you wake up.
This rehydrates your body, revs up your digestive system, and gets things flowing. You may notice positive changes like clearer skin and better digestion. Bonus points if you add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice or a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
2. Do not check your email or phone for at least an hour.
Do you sleep with your cell phone next to you and grab for it first thing when you wake? This is not a good habit. If you choose to resist the temptation to check your email and Facebook feed until at least an hour after waking up, you'll find that your mind is more clear, focused and happy.
3. Think of one thing for which you have gratitude.
This sets the stage for positivity throughout the day. If you come up with three or five things, even better.
4. Step outside and take a deep breath.
Fill your lungs with fresh air. Even if it’s cold outside. This only takes 10 seconds! It reminds you that you are alive and breathing.
5. Move your body.
You don’t necessarily have to do an intense workout before breakfast, but moving your body even a little is a great way to get the blood flowing and shake the body into wake-up mode. Simply doing a few stretches is a great option. Or turn on your favorite song and dance like no one is watching.
6. Take time to eat a healthy breakfast.
Rather than reaching for a box of cereal, focus on getting real foods in your body. Eggs, soaked oats, and smoothies are all great options. (And they really don’t take that much time to prepare.) Try it out.
7. Say your affirmations.
Look into the mirror and say something positive to yourself. Some ideas:
•I radiate beauty, confidence and grace.
•Every cell in my body is healthy and vibrant.
•I feel great when I take care of myself.
So are you up for the challenge of incorporating these healthy habits? What about you? What helps you start the day off right?
