Staying positive is much easier said than done. I know I can use all the help I can get with tips and tricks because we are given a choice every day to lead a life that cultivates positivity. A simple shift in perspective can make or break our days. Just like the exercise of the glass being half full versus half empty reveals our point of view, we can also evaluate our state of mind by how well we are incorporating positive activities and thoughts into our lives.
Small decisions we make throughout the day can end up affecting us more than we think. For example, when I wake up and reach for a glass of water to start my day rather than a glass of juice, I am giving my body positive nutrition. When I let myself relax and laugh with those around me, I will feel a release of positivity that overrides any stress I may had been feeling. And when I spend 20 minutes of my evening with my children having dance parties instead of scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, I am pouring positivity into my spirit rather than playing the social media comparison game.
