Trying to stay positive is not always easy.
Most of us know at least one person who seems to always see the bright side of life.
And it is also true to say that we all know someone who leaves us feeling drained or sad.
After undergoing some worrying health issues, I remember receiving an odd text message from somebody, who asked me if they had done something to offend me because they had not heard from me?
I was puzzled as to why they felt like this, when surely, they could just as easily pick up the phone and ask how I was doing too?
Perhaps, when we are feeling down ourselves, we tend not to stay in contact with people?
We withdraw a bit from life. I know I hide from the world when I am feeling unwell!
Focus on the positive with hope
Covid- 19 sadly forced many of us into a smaller world within ourselves.
Some of us will over-think everything. Some just keep on trying, by counting their blessings each day and know that they are in control of their own attitude.
One way we can remain positive is to have something to look forward to, no matter how long it takes.
I am certainly looking forward to travelling again, especially to see my family overseas who I miss.
Walt Disney said- “it seems to me, we have a lot of story left to tell!”
So looking forward to something in the future is certainly worth while.
Keeping busy to stay grounded
Often an easy way of keeping a positive mind is to stay busy.
If you like gardening, then there is nothing better than spending time with nature.
Perhaps you like being creative?
Here is a great link for heaps of things to keep you busy with your home and garden.
What better way to feel good especially when you can accomplish something worthwhile.
It’s okay to have a bad day
We all have bad days. Try not to dwell on the bad days, knowing that they will end eventually.
Remember “courage” does not always roar, but is that little voice at the end of the day that whispers
“I will try again tomorrow”
Let love, positivity and hope be contagious
During these pandemic times, we are told to be kind. Perhaps that will be one good lesson that many will learn because of the pandemic.
Endorphins – the happiness hormones are associated with feeling happy, and are often known as a natural pain reliever.
Get outside for a walk or a bike ride and increase those happy hormones.
Listen to music and increase the chemical known as dopamine – Music can improve our moods while decreasing pain and anxiety.
Never let a bad situation bring out the worst in you. Choose to be strong and focus on the positive.
