Imagine waking up with a smile on your face, grateful for everything that has happened to you, as you get ready for a productive day. Positivity leads to productivity, battles depression, and impacts how others perceive you. Such a small action in your mind can go a long way.
Every night I like to write something I am grateful for on a post-it-note and place it near my bed. In seeing this note when I wake up, it sends positive endorphins into my brain and overall increases my happiness and provides a positive attitude. This helps me stay motivated throughout the day.
People often overlook the impact of a positive attitude. Negativity is like a 20-lb weight that you have to carry in your head. This weight drags you down. It prevents you from accomplishing your goals. It pushes away your friends. It makes you feel like you’re not as good as you actually are. Keeping this weight in your head just slows you down overall. It is something that can be prevented by taking a couple precautions and by changing your overall mindset.
If you surround yourself with positive people, give yourself encouragement, and acknowledge your accomplishments; it will go a long way and you will see a difference in the way you feel. Programming your brain to apply this in your day-to-day life will improve your lifestyle. It is a small, simple, and easy to do task that goes a long way. Acknowledging how positivity can impact your life is the first step in understanding the power of positivity.
