First, let’s talk about WHY to stay positive.

When you are happy, upbeat and positive. It promotes self-confidence. It improves creative and cognitive thinking. It improves emotional state for things like happiness, joy, and love. And, when we are in a good emotional state, people will normally produce a higher number of actions… in general. So happy people do and accomplish more.

So let’s talk about a few ways to STAY positive.

  1. Be deliberate about what you put into your brain. Start with turning off the news. Engage with the right people. Read books. Listen to motivational content (podcasts) rather than the radio.
  2. Eat right, get good sleep, and exercise. Eat the right things, the right times and so on. You can’t live on just cookies and get fat, and wonder why you don’t have any energy… it’s because you are overweight and only eat cookies. Make deliberate time to go to the gym, or if not the gym, walk around the neighborhood. Go for a walk with your spouse, and kids, make a connection and make it fun.
  3. Have an attitude of gratitude. Take time out to really focus on and consider what you’re grateful for. It’s not just the “right” thing to do; it also reduces stress. Research conducted at the University of California, Davis, found that people who worked daily to cultivate an attitude of gratitude experienced improved mood, energy and substantially less anxiety due to lower cortisol levels.
  4. Add value to someone else today. What you give to people and how you treat them will be reciprocated. And if you treat people well it starts to reflect on yourself.

There are a lot more options and ways for staying positive or becoming a positive focused person. But I find that these work the best for me. These things give good energy, help to steer my focus for the day… and ultimately allow me to remain a positive influence on myself and others, therefore being viewed as an overall positive person!
