How To Remain Positive In A World Of Negativity

There’s so much happening in the world that can affect the way we move through this Earth. Death, violence, racial injustice are only a few. Happiness can be elusive or short-lived for so many of us but it doesn’t have to be. Here are 10 ways I  personally stay positive even when it’s hard to:

  1. Don’t compare yourself to others
  2. Close your eyes and ears to things that disrupt your peace.
  3. Cultivate and environment of love and healthy communication by involving people with your same values and outlook on life.
  4. Be flexible to the curves and bumps in the road that life has. Bend don’t break.
  5. Quit self deprecating, affirm your worth daily with verbal affirmations.
  6. Do what you love , find an activity you enjoy and do it as often as possible. For me that’s writing or listening to music or jumping rope.
  7. Spend time with God, praying, worshipping however you choose.
  8. Allocate time to reflection. Count all the things that went well and all the things you need to improve on with gratitude.
  9. Spend time with loved ones. As busy as adulthood gets it’s easy to overlook those you love and we ought not to. Being around family and friends is a very comfortable and happy place for me.
  10. Be present. I’m guilty of not doing this enough. Be in the moment and enjoy ebbing and flowing of emotion.

Have a great week all!
God bless!
