How to be more positive - my best tips

Well hello to you my reader chums! Positivity is something everybody needs, it helps you feel better about yourself, your life and can leave an effect on others. In my opinion, it's a way of life, ' a negative mind will never give you a positive life'. What I take from this quote is that if you're negative about every scenario which occurs, there will be no positive outcome because you are unable to see a bad situation in a hopeful light.

How to be more positive

Whether you're looking to have a more positive mindset or feel a little happier, here is how to be more positive.

Find something good in every day 

When you're having a bad day where everything goes wrong and you want to give up, stop for a second and think. Think about something that day which has made you smile. It can be the smallest thing from your makeup looking nice, getting a smile off a stranger, or even a funny conversation you had. 

No matter what's gone on in the day, there is always a positive aspect. If nothing particular comes to mind, think about the bigger areas of your life such as friends, family, your job or hobbies, an area which can always make you smile. Practising gratitude will really help to shift your mindset - and a good way to do this is every day, log three things you're grateful for.

Stop comparing 

Comparing yourself to others is probably one of the most natural things, yet has such a negative impact on our lives. Whether it's comparing your appearance or the success of somebody else, both can turn the positivity you have in yourself into a negative. Therefore, instead of comparing, admire. What I mean by this is if you see someone and they have a really nice haircut for example, instead of thinking 'I wish I looked like that', think 'what a lovely haircut they have' and then find something you love about yourself to simply not compare what the other person has. That way you're turning a negative thought into something positive - and it'll have a positive impact on you.

Don't be so hard on yourself 

Linking to the comparing point, being hard on yourself in whatever it may be will put you back into a pessimistic mindset. All you can ever do is try your best, meaning it doesn't matter if you didn't get the top mark on a test or your blog isn't as big as many others, for instance, you're trying and you will succeed in all you put your mind to. 

Success doesn't occur overnight, it takes time, hard work and focus. Next time you're hard on yourself for any reason, just think I gave it my all, that's all you can ever ask for. You're doing the best you can and everybody has hard days.

Dream big 

Being positive about a lot of things will make you grow your mind and lead you to think of bigger dreams for the future. 'Keep your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground'. This quote means, carry on dreaming and aspire to do things beyond your wildest imagination, yet understand at the same time it means hard work and courage. Nothing is easy but continually working will always pay off. Never give up on your big dreams.

Live every day as an adventure 

I've come across this saying lately and I love it. To me this quote suggests, take every day and make it a good one. Capture those memories, have a laugh, stop worrying, and be happy. Easier said than done, but appreciating every day for what it is and take a day at a time will really help you see things in a more positive light.
