“Think Positively” is More Than Just A Silly Mantra

Have you ever felt from time to time like your life doesn’t quite measure up to others around you, and that you are constantly living just below who and what you’re meant to be?

If so, you may have felt these uncertainties made it difficult to stay positive and motivated in the face of trying times and the various challenges life throws at you.

September 13th is Positive Thinking Day. Today, we will be exploring five practical tips to empower your positive thinking. We’ll look at ways to focus on the good aspects of life (without attempting to ignore the bad aspects) and how developing a more positive attitude can make achieving goals within reach. Through each tip, we’ll provide tangible advice so you can move towards a happier, healthier mindset.

By the end of this post, you’ll have a few of the most important tools to equip yourself to stay optimistic, even when difficult times come your way. Join Danu Wellness below in learning a few applicable tips that may make a big difference each day, week, and month.

How you start your day is one of the most important factors in maintaining positive thinking throughout the day.

Begin Each Day With a Positive Mindset

Starting each day with a positive outlook can make a tremendous impact on our mood and outlook on life. By taking the time to reflect on the good things in our lives and practicing positive thinking, we allow ourselves to see the beauty in every moment, even during challenging times.

One way to begin each day positively is by keeping a gratitude journal. By jotting down at least 10 things we are grateful for each morning, we remind ourselves of the abundance in our lives and shift our focus to the positive. 

Choose Balanced, Healthy Foods Each Morning

Incorporating balanced, healthy foods into your morning routine contributes to a more positive mindset. The foods we eat can dramatically impact our physical health, which in turn affects our mood and mental well-being. By starting the day with a nourishing meal, we provide our bodies with the essential nutrients needed for sustained energy, optimal brain function, and overall wellness.

This could be as simple as choosing whole grains over processed bread or cereals, adding more fruits and vegetables to your plate, or ensuring a good balance of protein and healthy fats.

Making these healthier choices not only benefits our mental health and physical health, but also sets a positive tone for the rest of the day, encouraging further wholesome decisions and promoting a positive mental attitude towards our health and well-being.

When we consistently practice positive thinking, we empower ourselves to see the power of positive thought and the impact it has on our well-being. Among the health benefits of positive thinking is a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease because of fewer stress hormones in your system.

Remember, each day is a new beginning, and we have the ability to choose a positive outlook.

Expose Yourself to Humor Every Day for a More Positive Outlook

In a world that can often feel overwhelming, it can be tempting to focus solely on the negative aspects. However, if we make a conscious effort to seek out humor and comedy in our daily lives, we can empower positive thinking and cultivate a brighter outlook.

Whether it’s watching a funny movie, listening to a comedian’s podcast, or simply spending time with friends who always make us laugh, exposing ourselves to humor is a powerful way to shift our mindset and see the bright side of things.

When we make laughter a regular part of our lives, we open ourselves up to positivity, joy, and a more empowered perspective. So go ahead, embrace the silly, and see for yourself how a positive mindset can change everything.

Treat Yourself As If You’re Helping A Good Friend With Positive Self-talk

Sometimes, we can be our harshest critics, but what if we treated ourselves with the same kindness and encouragement we would give to a good friend?

More positive thinking in your life can have numerous benefits, such as cultivating a more positive attitude, creating a ripple effect of positive thoughts, and improving your overall emotional well-being and state of emotional balance.

When striving to improve the different areas of your life, it’s essential to approach yourself with compassion, understanding, and a gentle reminder that you’re doing the best you can.

One of the simplest ways to remind yourself of how you’re speaking to yourself is to imagine saying some of the negative things you tell yourself to a good friend. Sound harsh? That’s because it probably is! Negative self-talk can be just as damaging as one person bullying another. Breaking free from negative thought patterns and routinely practicing positive self-talk and positive affirmations are incredibly valuable for reducing a negative outlook.

Remember, treating yourself with kindness and positivity will only bring greater rewards in the long run.

Increase The Time You Spend Around Positive People And Friends Who Lift You Up

In life, there will inevitably be negative situations and emotions that we have to face. However, it’s important to remember that our outlook on life can make all the difference.

By surrounding ourselves with positive people who lift us up, we can increase our own positivity and resilience, as well as decrease the chances you’ll get stuck on a negative thinking cycle. Spending time with those who radiate positivity and kindness can improve not just our mental state, but also our physical health.

We can learn so much from those around us and even sometimes gain a new perspective on life. Oppositely, spending too much time with people who regularly share negative thoughts can result in a negative attitude toward yourself.

So, take the time to find those positive people in your life and make an effort to spend more time with them.

Review Your Day and Acknowledge The Positive AND Negative Emotions

As you wind down for the day, take a moment to review all the thoughts and events that occurred. It’s important to acknowledge not just the good, but also the bad, i.e. negative thinking. There may have been moments that brought you joy and contentment – those are worth celebrating.

However, if negative thoughts or emotions creep in, it can be tempting to push them aside and pretend they don’t exist. Instead, take a few deep breaths and gently confront those difficult moments. Don’t let them fester and grow into something larger than they need to be.

Show yourself some kindness and compassion as you acknowledge both the good and bad, and then let go of any lingering negativity. Tomorrow is a new day for positive emotions, full of opportunities for growth and learning.
