Midweek Motivation ~ 7 Tips To Positivity~

As part of my 5 tips to success and motivation, (read it here) Tip 2 was to Stay Positive. This is a very important step to a happy success filled existence.

It’s not an easy task to be positive, happy and smiley all the time but if you can manage this everything else will be so much easier.


1.   Smile

Even if you’re feeling down, smile.

A simple smile not only cheers up your day it cheers up everyone you meet on your journey through life.

If you think back to your last walk through town, who do you remember? The person who smiled at you just because they were having a good day! And I bet that made you smile! Smiling is contagious!!!


2.   Be Polite and Courteous

You might not think it means a lot but it does to those your being polite and courteous too.

Hold the door for someone, say please and thank you. If you put someone else in a positive mood you will be in a positive mood yourself.

And don’t forget about Karma, put out positivity get back positivity.


3.   Surround Yourself With Positivity

Be it people, pets or objects if they are positive they have a place in your life.

Negative people can drag you down with them so either cut the cord or cheer them up. Sometimes people are so negative its amusing and you laugh at them but that’s a rarity. So if your friends are negative you need new friends!

Pets are always positive and put you in a good mood. So if you feel down talk to your pet.

4.   Positive Reinforcement/ Visualisation/ Use Your Senses

Linked to surrounding yourself with positivity. Positive quotes are everywhere
these days be it on wall hangings or cushion covers so get yourself some! (like these from Primark)

If there is something you want in life, to have a bikini body, to pass your exams or your driving test Visualise It!!! Write it down and pin it up all around your house so it’s the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you see at night.

Use all your senses, repeat positive thoughts out loud when you’re on your own or better yet read your positive signs out loud to yourself then you can see, speak and hear them reinforcing positive thoughts in your subconscious mind. When your mind believes your positive your body follows.

5.   List 5 good things about you and your life!

Simple, if you’re positive more difficult if you’re not so start out easy.

·        I have a nice smile.

·        I have pretty eyes.

·        I make a good chocolate brownie!

·        I’m a good listener.

·        I have a cute bedroom

·        I am fabulous!!!

But seriously give it a try and keep going you might find hundreds of positive traits!

6.   Don’t be a Victim

Harsh I know but get over it.

Accept your flaws and move on.

 Accept your past and move on, you can’t change it (unless you invent a time machine)

You can’t control what others think so why bother trying, it’s not their life! Live for yourself.

7.     Meditation

If you are very stressed and negative take a few minutes out and relax, empty your mind, picture a blank sheet of paper.

It’s not for everyone but there has to be a reason why people have meditated for generations.
(Words of Wisdom from Laura)

Ok that was a really long one but you get the point. Positivity is just a combination of little things you can do to make you and everyone else around you happier, motivated and successful!
