Fast pace of life, modern and demanding daily routine, impersonal relationships, anxieties as well as the ever-increasing negative news -consciously or subconsciously- affect us, leading, sometimes, to a passive, negative or even “miserable” attitude towards life. Undoubtedly, challenges, difficulties and unexpected circumstances are parts of our life. It isn’t possible and we should not want to avoid them! However, what we definitely please, is to change the way we approach things; we wish to handle them in a more positive and optimistic way.
See life with “new eyes”
We all know that positive and beautiful thoughts bring as well positive and beautiful results, provided that they become action. Adopt the following habits, discover the best version of yourself and be full of optimism!
Start your day off right: A good day starts from the morning; thus, it is very important to wake up and don’t find “obstacles” that may spoil your mood. Set the alarm 10 minutes earlier and ignore your cell phone. Get out of bed right away and make your breakfast, remember to put on the face cream that you constantly skip, or make your favorite hairstyle.
Set daily goals: Proper planning and implementation of goals will make our day easier and more productive, as they will serve as motivation and as an indicator of what tasks we need to handle. At the end of the day, the joy and satisfaction we will get from the successful completion of our obligations will fill us with optimism!
Hang out with happy people: No one can deny that happiness is contagious. Positive people who frame our lives (either real or online ones) are the reason why we are filled with energy as well as self-confidence while, on the contrary, whenever we gather with miserable and pessimistic people, our psychology weighs. No matter how difficult it seems, conscious distancing from people who wear us down may be crucial to our psychology.
Boost your self-confidence: Whether you are wearing suits, shirts or overalls and sweatshirts, try to add a … refreshing touch to your appearance, that will give you extra confidence. Try hairbands, ribbons, jewels or whatever you like!
Plan an outing that “fills” you once a week: A day trip or a weekend getaway? Walking with friends, going out for food or drink, going to the cinema, or visiting a museum? Whatever pleases you, plan it and do it. Do not dwell on words! Arrange the exit you wish, so as to have something to wait for during the week.
We don’t have to spend money or time, nor to completely reshape our daily lives. What is needed is to recognize the negative emotions that affect us and to decide, consciously and stubbornly, to eliminate them. If you want to live a happy life, just choose it, and make sure that all your steps and actions support this choice.
