Build A Positive Mindset

The “power of positive thinking” is a popular concept, and sometimes it can feel a little cliché. Being an optimist can be hard for some people and sometimes you just don’t know where to start with being positive. Here are a few pointers which you may find useful.

  1. Identify : First you really need to identify why are in a negative mindset. What thoughts do you have when you identify something as bad instead of neutral or good? Do you have certain beliefs in yourself?
  2.  Gratitude Journal : You should write down at least 5 things you are grateful for everyday. I personally write whole list of things that I am grateful for when I feel like I’m in the wrong mood. 
  3. Meditate : This will help you with overthinking. Meditation lowers your stress and can help you to be more positive. Meditating 20 minutes/day had not only an effect on your mood but also your body.
  4. Get Rid of Toxic : There are always things that you think about too much. Cut negative and toxic people out of your life. You don’t need them. This will make the biggest difference in your life. 
  5. Surround Yourself : After you cut out toxic people and your negative past your should find more positive things to surround yourself with. I frequently unfollow people who don’t inspire me.
  6. Affirmation : To keep the positivity high you should continue to form a positive mindset through positive and motivation self talk. I personally love affirmation and use them a lot with my meditation.

Did you like the list. Do leave me a comment 🙂

    • The popularity of meditation is increasing as more people discover its benefits. Meditation is a habitual process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts. You can use it to increase awareness of yourself and your surroundings. Many people think of it as a way to reduce stress and develop concentration. People also use the practice to develop other beneficial habits and feelings, such as a positive mood and outlook, self-discipline, healthy sleep patterns and even increased pain tolerance.

  2. Thank you for the list I did like it. The last few pointers to take heed to your environment or trash the past is something I didn’t consider.
    I was thinking about when I was walking earlier today and I found myself brooding over a bad situation, then I stopped to ask myself why I was in a bad mood – so next time I’ll try some of these.

  3. Dear Garima,

    Yes, if you remove toxic issues and people, you have fill it with something better. It’s not an easy call when it is a parent and we are called to love and respect our parents. Tough one, but life is a life-long process.

    Thanks,

    Gary

    • I couldn’t agree more Gary. Make yourself realize it’s a ‘process’ and continue your efforts. Its not possible to remove them with a snap of a finger. Start saying ‘No’ when its needed, instead of providing justifications when they ask for something. Avoid have a one-one conversation in private. Try interacting with them in a public place. Such people tend to be less toxic when they are in public.

  4. Gratitude. That really stuck out to me. Our lives are a plethora of beautiful things, lovely things, that we allow to drift by without giving thanks. Oh, if we only developed the mindset to give thanks and rejoice over all the blessings that pour into our laps on a daily basis! What a different world we would live in.
    Psalms 107:1
    “Oh give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.”
    Be blessed,

    • Thank you Ron. “Stop feeling sorry for yourself,” we are often told. And while it can be hard to avoid self-pity entirely, mentally strong people choose to exchange self-pity for gratitude. Whether you choose to write a few sentences in a gratitude journal, or simply take a moment to silently acknowledge all that you have, giving thanks can transform your life.
