When you are in a bad mood, you tend to see things and situations in a negative way, but if you make a conscious effort to see the situation in a more positive way, what you get back is a more positive feeling. What you give out, you get back!
Research into positivity
There is a lot of research into what positivity and negativity does with our health, and most of the research shows that a positive spirit keeps us healthier and (of course) happier. And who hasn’t experienced how much easier everything is and how much more one can do when feeling happy and content?
Blood pressure and heart rate goes down and the whole system works better when you think positive thoughts, and it has also been shown that positive people live longer.
When you see something you don’t like, just do not give your energy to it, or try to look at it positively, it will make you feel better and if you really try, you might even be able to find something positive about it!
How do you change your negative thoughts?
It is actually not that hard to change from being negative to being positive, but it takes some effort. You have to try and monitor your feelings, because they will tell you what you are thinking about. You cannot feel bad and have positive thoughts and vice versa. So during the day, now and then ask yourself: “How do I feel right now?” If you are feeling sad or anxious, try thinking of the things you love and see if it gets better. If not, do a little meditation, breath deeply a couple of times or do something you really enjoy, it will make you live longer!
