Do you know what the most important factor in boosting your health is? It is not exercise nor is it eating right and using organic products (although these things surely help). It is adopting a positive attitude about life. Many researches have proven that positive thinking helps people overcome hardships and live a healthy life. Here are some things that strengthens positive attitude about life.
1- Help others. Helping others is our due to our communities. It also makes us feel good about ourselves, and by doing it you think things like, “I am one of those who help others, and if there are many of us, People will surely help me someday if I get in trouble”.
2- Positivity – like negativity – is contagious. So when you spend more time with pessimistic and negative people, you are prone to feel unhappy and depressed all of the time. And if you spend more time with positive people, you will feel happy about little things, and will fight negative feelings when they creep into your head.
3- Analyze your way of thinking. This way you will learn how your mind works and how it acquires thoughts that make you depressed. So, if you learn what subjects or thoughts can trigger negative feelings you can stop them in track.
4- Try to remember the results negativity have caused you before. Do not try to remember what caused negativity, but how bad negativity itself made you feel and poisoned your feelings and thoughts.
5- When you feel trapped by negative feelings and thoughts, make a grateful-for list. It is a list in which you write all the things you are grateful for, no matter how little or trivial they may seem.
