The Steps to Living a Positive Lifestyle

Positivity can open so many doors in your life. Have you ever idolized someone for their positive attitude?

Most of us wish to become more positive but we don’t know how or where to even start. Positivity is something that can really have an overall effect on your life…

Isn’t that something we all want?

Don’t think that you’re too deeply rooted in your negative mindset to dig your way out of them. We all have thoughts that end up straying to the bad side of our minds, however, I will give you a few tips on how you can improve your positive lifestyle.

Thank me later 🙂

1. Simple Act Of Kindness // Have you ever had a bad day and just a simple smile from a stranger lightened you up a bit? Or is that just me? Either way, kindness can go a long way.

For example, providing necessary items for the homeless, buying a stranger’s groceries, tipping when you can… Or simply just a smile! You never know who may need it. The act of giving back is awesome and the feeling is just as good too.

Remember, all heroes don’t wear capes. (:

2. Change Your Thoughts // You’ve ever gotten out of bed in a bad mood and the rest of your day continues on just as bad. Well, that’s because we have put it out into the universe. See, what we think is what will become. Change your thoughts and you’ll change your life.

3. Get Rid of Toxic People/Things // How can we practice positive living when we still have negative/toxic ends that need to be cut? Yes, I’m talking about family, friends, habits, etc. I’m sure you get the drift. All I’m saying is you can’t have a positive life if your surroundings are negative. It will only bring you down and that it’s NOT what you need.

4. Time For Yourself // If you’ve been a reader on my blog for a while, you know that I speak about self-care A LOT (6 Ways to Practice Self-Care & 20+ Women Reveal What Self-Care Truly Means to Them: A Self-Care Guide. )

It’s such a helpful thing. Some people feel guilty for spending a little time with themselves. Don’t! That is how you really come to know who you are. By spending time alone you can really figure out what does or what does not serve you, that being a person or maybe even a habit.

5. Engage in Healthy Conversations // A conversation about goals or accomplishments can really boost your overall mood — I know for me it does. I really enjoy speaking with others about their accomplishments and/or where they may see themselves in the future. Gossiping has gotten old and honestly, it really does not benefit you or anyone else by speaking about it. Get out of that habit of speaking about the negatives and start talking about your future goals and how you will achieve them.

Living a positive lifestyle won’t happen overnight — it takes a bit of work, however, YOU CAN DO IT.

  1. I needed this reminder today! I am military wife, stay at home Mom of two and I work from home. I am constantly on-the-go with errands, house work, kids etc. My days are usually long with only minutes set aside for me. I’ve started using a planner with hopes that I can create some balance and maybe even carve out a little more than minutes of time for myself. Wish me luck!:)
