It’s so easy to let certain situations or expectations get us down – but the true test is all in how we choose to deal with it.
Having a negative mindset tends to be a natural state for many, but the truth is, it takes more energy to be negative. It might take awhile to train your mind to be more positive but once you start living life with this brighter attitude life feels a lot better.
I’ve made a point of leading with a positive mindset and it makes such a big difference. It doesn’t mean I never get frustrated, upset or annoyed – it’s important to embrace all emotions. It’s just equally as important to ask yourself how you want to handle these emotions and how you want to show up in life!
It makes a big difference when you ask yourself who you want to be – and an even bigger difference when you ask yourself who you want to be in those lower feeling moments. When I do catch myself in a more negative mindset there are a few things I do to help me shift out of it. I’m excited to share what those are with you, so you can start feeling happier, lighter and enjoy life in an even bigger way!
3 Ways To Feel Positive
Shift Your Perspective
When you’re all wrapped up in a negative situation it’s hard to take the blinders off. I call this a one-way street. You’re only seeing things from one perspective. When you start asking yourself how else you could view this situation, you start giving yourself new possibilities of how else you could feel. A lot of the time you can start seeing how its not that big of a deal or that there might be a silver lining you never thought of before.
Create Positive Mantras
One of the biggest ways to shift your mindset from a negative place is to have the awareness you’re even being negative! It’s funny how negativity is such a natural state for many people that they don’t even realize they’re showing up that way. Once you bring awareness to it, one of my favourite things is coming up with positive mantras. To find out one of my go-to mantras click HERE.
This is a well known fact, but so easy to forget when things aren’t going the way you had hoped. Thinking of all the great things in your life and what you’re grateful for helps to remind you that life really isn’t all that bad. I recommend making it a daily practice to ask yourself what you’re grateful for. This will help you build your positive mindset so when things don’t go as planned, you’re able to bounce back a little quicker.
