How to Stay Positive In A Negative World

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Joyce Marsh Real Estate LLC BK659279 

One of the easiest ways to stay positive is to practice gratitude. 


Cultivating gratitude is a cornerstone of positivity. Take time each day to reflect on the things you are grateful for, no matter how small.


Gratitude helps shift your focus from what's lacking to what's present, fostering a sense of abundance and appreciation.


Surround Yourself with Positivity.  Surround yourself with uplifting influences, whether it's supportive friends and family, inspiring books and podcasts, or uplifting music and art.


Positive environments can bolster your own optimism and provide a source of encouragement during tough times.


Lastly, be kind to yourself, especially when facing difficulties.


Treat yourself with the same compassion and understanding you would offer to a friend in need.

Acknowledge your strengths and accomplishments, and recognize that setbacks are a natural part of life's journey.

There are some types of pain that are purely mental, and if we can take our struggles and find some kind of joy in the struggle, that can be beautiful in a lot of ways.

Great post and comments.  I am much better at this since reading The Miracle Morning.  What has gotten me through a few of life's darkest moments is focus focus focus on my many blessings.  We all have them but at times we take them for granted.  Thank you for the reminder!

I know as I grow older (almost said as I mature but that would not quite be right) I find myself much more appreciative of even the little things I never even thought of before.  Make it a good day.  M
