Positivity never gets the credit it deserves, and sometimes in the hustle and bustle of life, it often takes the back seat since most of us are part of the rat race: the best job, the best house, the best car and other material possessions.
We forget to consider it for its true purpose in our lives: happiness. If we are not happy, these worldly pleasures barely count for anything.
Yes, it cannot be denied that it is not easy to always be positive but then again it does not have to be the most difficult thing in the world. Following are nine ways to find positivity in the simplest things in life.
1. Value Nature
The wonders of nature are always at our disposal. What is truly a blessing is that nature will always be available. All we have to do is go out, take it all in. A small walk sometime in the morning, or the evening would lift your spirits up enormously.
Kindness is truly the most underrated of virtues, in every day life. When you go about your life spreading smiles, you’ll find that happiness coming back to you in some way or the other. It is the rule of the Universe, you get what you give out.
3. Smile as much as you can
When you smile, a physiological reaction takes place. Your happy hormones are released and you feel happy from within. When you smile at other people, they are likely to smile back at you and everyone knows that happiness around us will help us be happy, too. Use them face muscles and spread joy!
4. Be thankful
It is easy to get lost in the abyss of discontentment. Things do not always work out the way we want them to. It is just how it works, but battling this is not impossible either. Take some time off every day and think about the things that life has blessed you with. Your frustrations will find a better outlet this way.
5. Hang out with people that are positive
When you are in the presence of negativity, you will find it difficult to be positive all the time, you are only human. So to avoid this, try being friends with people with sunny dispositions, people who know how to look at the brighter side of life and the silver lining in the dark clouds that life throws at us.
6. Talk about happy things
News every day is full of bad news and while it is easy to get succumbed to the negativity, find out about the good things that are happening in the world, the small little things and the small mercies. Life will seem less bleak when you do this.
7. Self love
You are your own source of positivity so give yourself all the love you possibly can.
8. Live today
We do not know what will happen tomorrow, so embrace life on an everyday basis. Things might go bad tomorrow but today’s happiness is for you to enjoy. Live in the present
9. Take care of you health
A healthy body yields positivity. Work out, eat proper food, transform yourself
