Have you ever wondered how some people seem to always be as if nothing bothers them? Well, it's not a magic drink or a magic pill. It's a mindset, and they practice it daily. See 5 simple tips below to how you can learn to be more positive.
1) Sleep more
Sleep is the single most important thing you can do for your personal health. This is because your body is your best natural healer. When you sleep your body has less demands, therefore your heart slows. When this happens your sympathetic nervous system relaxes, and your body can begin the healing process.
Cortisol is the stress hormone, and when you sleep, these levels are at their lowest. They're always lowest before bed, during sleep, and when you wake up in the morning.
Also, when you're asleep you body releases cytokines. Cytokines fight infection, inflammation, and trauma. This is why when you have a sickness, you try to sleep alot! Your body will take care of you if you allow it. So, sleep more, wake up better. Your chances of facing the day with more positivity are much greater!
Meditation has been used for thousands of years, with it's roots in Eastern culture. It's an amazing way to connect your mind, body, and spirit for a more happy and fulfilling life. It's about connecting with you inner self, getting in touch with your deepest desires, and focusing on your overall mental health.
Start the day off right! Include into your weekly morning routine. Just 10 -15 minutes set aside is enough. Find a calm place, put on some headphones with some soft gentle music, and focus your mind and thoughts.
Focus on gratitude and abundance. What are you thankful for? Focus on wealth and living a truly spectacular life. Say your affirmations: I am amazing. I am a hard worker and I deserve a spectacular life. The universe provides everything for me that I need. I am thankful. I am grateful for my life. I am full of love.
3) Rid yourself of negativity
Do you have energy demons in your life? Time to rid yourself of these negative influences. They say that people are the accumulation of the 5 people they hang around most. It's true.
Are you attracting more negativity or positivity into your life? Always ask yourself this question daily. Are the people around you supportive? Do they lift you up and support what you're doing? Do they make you want to live a better life?
Turn off the television! Do you watch the news too much? Does the state of the world really bother you? Focusing on doom and gloom will only bring you more doom and gloom. Monitor yourself and what your feed your mind.
4) Choose your words and thoughts carefully
Auto suggestion is a powerful used by therapists to redevelop people's brain activity. It's so powerful that people can literally hack their brains and reprogram them. What you say and tell yourself everyday is what makes up your individual psychology.

5) Keep a clean surrounding
Does having a dirty place ever make you stressed out before you start the day? Do you look around and think "wow this place is a disaster, and I really can't be bothered". Starting the day by just making your bed can do wonders for your mental clarity. There's a reason there's such a practice as feng shui.
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that uses energy forces to help individuals find more harmony with their surrounding environment. It's there to ensure that people live with more peace and tranquility.
