Staying Positive in a Negative World

It’s often much easier to be negative than positive these days.  To be happy and successful in your career and life you must stay positive on a daily basis.  Doesn’t it seem when one thing goes wrong, the rest of your day follows the same path?  It’s up to YOU to decide to be positive; no one else is going to do it for you.  So here are some tips to create happiness:

Smile and laugh.  It’s been shown that the simple act of smiling or laughing lowers your heart rate which relaxes the body.  It also reduces stress, improves mood, increases alertness, creativity and memory!  Do whatever it takes to crack a smile or watch something funny on YouTube!  Here’s a cute one:

Surround yourself with positive people.  This is often hard to do in the workplace, but it’s crucial to your happiness!  It’s often said that people are the reflections of their five closest friends in many ways: behaviors, income levels, values and so on.  So be aware of who is influencing you!  And if you can’t change your friends, change your friends!

Express Gratitude.  Another easy way to increase your positivity is to express your gratitude for what you have and are happy for in your life now.  Every morning before your “to-do” list floods your brain, stop, close your eyes, and say thank you for everything you have.  This simple act will fill your head with love, and where love resides, fear and all other negative emotions cannot.

I challenge you to be a force of love in our universe!  Happy thoughts will attract more happy circumstances into your life!
