♥positive thinking♥

Virtually every self-help book on
the market have one thing in
common - expressing the
importance of being positive to
increase your happiness and
There have been many studies
done on the power of positive
thought and the conclusions
show a mass amount of health
benefits, without having to take
medication! Positive thinking has
been proven to reduce stress,
help people live longer, and
improve your overall well-being
and ability to cope.
So if it is that simple, then why
aren't we living in a society of
total bliss and happiness? The
answer is that no one, you nor I,
wants to admit that they are
negative. And if you can't admit
that you are negative then how
can you ever change your
lifestyle to being positive?
In Online Dating Magazine's
article about online dating profile
tips, the #1 tip is to avoid
negativity in your profile.
Whether it is "I'm lonely" or "my
last boyfriend was a jerk" these
types of statements turn people
off, making it easy to bypass your
profile for one where a person
seems more in tune with life, and
But avoiding negativity shouldn't
just be an issue for your profile.
It should be an issue for your life.
And with that in mind, here are
seven steps to help you turn
negativity into positive thinking:
Step 1: Admit You Are Negative
The first step to changing your
life is to admit that you are
negative or that you have
negative thoughts. Whether
talking about a coworker behind
his/her back or believing you
"can't" do something; these
contribute to a non-healthy
Step 2: Be Determined to be
Once you've admitted you are
negative, or at least have some
negative tendencies, you can
resolve to changing the way you
think. Become conscious of your
daily thoughts and when a
negative thought enters your
mind, quickly turn it around.
Instead of "I don't think I can do
that," think "I love a new
challenge and will conquer this
one" or "I can do this no matter
how hard it is." Instead of "I'll do
this later," think "By getting this
done now I can have it
accomplished." Eliminate words
like "can't" from your vocabulary
and replace them with "can".
Start to say positive things about
other people. Start to think
positive things about other
people. "Wow, that was really
nice what he/she did." When
presented the opportunity to
comment on someone else,
refrain from saying anything bad.
Step 3: Remove Yourself From
Negative Influences
Your environment begins to
reflect who you are after time.
Thus if you have friends or
coworkers you hang out with
who are always griping about
their job, boss, or life then begin
to slowly weed out that group of
people and seek out those who
are positive and don't talk about
others behind their back. When
you replace a negative
environment with a positive one,
you make huge strides in
improving your lifestyle.
Step 4: Replace Cola with Water
The healthiest beverage you can
drink is water. And by replacing
chemical and sugar-filled drinks
with water, you will make
massive improvements to your
health. First of all, you are
eliminating the sugar and
caffeine that are so addicting, yet
bad for overall health. Second,
you are increasing your water
intake. Chemical-free natural
water will help improve your
energy, eliminate toxins from
your body, make your skin more
healthy looking, and improve
your mental performance. How
can you not help but become
more positive with such changes
to your life?! Drink lots of water -
it is the true "miracle vitamin".
Step 5: Stop Watching the
Murder. Rape. Fraud. War. Daily
news is often filled with nothing
but negative stories and when
you make reading such material
a part of your daily lifestyle, you
begin to be directly affected by
that environmental factor. If you
still need a dose of news, then
tune into a station or site that
features "Good News". Check out
this Happy News Web site and
this Good News Blog.
Step 6: Learn to Meditate
Meditating allows you to clear
your mind, lower stress, become
more focused, and stay positive.
It's a very positive and powerful
medium. By taking just 15
minutes a day to meditate, you'll
find yourself handling time and
stress much better. You'll also
gain a more positive outlook on
Step 7: Spread Your
Positiveness to Others
Put your new positive thinking
lifestyle into action. Take time out
to write down the top 10 things
you love about your partner and
give that list to him/her. When
you experience good customer
service, take time to write a note
or e-mail expressing your
gratitude. Practice spreading
your positiveness to others and it
will grow.
When you allow yourself to
become immersed in positive
thinking, you will start to see it
affect other aspects of your life.
For example, instead of feeling
"inconvenienced" by merging
traffic, you'll allow someone to
easily merge in front of you and
feel great about it. They might
even wave or mouth "thank you".
At a grocery store when you
have a cart full of groceries and
the person behind you has only
one or two items you may find
yourself saying, "please go ahead
of me since you only have a few
items" and that person's
gratitude will make your day.
You'll find yourself actively
thinking about others and your
contribution to their positive
experiences will have a huge
affect on your eternal happiness.
