Happy Friday y’all!!! Today I wanted to talk about staying positive. Overall I would say I am a pretty upbeat and happy person, but there have been many things in my life that I have changed in order to help keep me positive. Nowadays with social media anyone can broadcast their lives to us, so it can be hard not to compare ourselves to others. So below are my top 10 tips to stay positive, and grounded within myself.
TIP 1- “Don’t give a f**k!” Sorry to be blunt but it is true. The minute you stop caring so much about what others are doing and what others think of you is the minute you start living!
TIP 2- Find something that makes YOU happy! Not what makes you mom, dad, boyfriend, and friends happy, but what truly makes YOU excited to wake up everyday! Whether it is your job, working out, traveling, or even food, find something that motivates you to live!
TIP 3- Try to find the positive side in everything! Now I don’t mean every single thing, but if a small inconvenience happens, don’t let it put a damper on your whole day, brush it off and put on a smile!
TIP 4- Laugh!!! Enjoy life and have fun, try not to stress too much! finding time to laugh can really enhance your mood and instantly make you feel better.
TIP 5- Take care of yourself. Eating healthy and working out can really have a huge impact on your mental health. The moment I changed my health, the way I looked at life was 100% more positive. Eating like shit and drinking a lot can cause depression and overall make you feel awful!
TIP 6- Surround yourself with others that are just as positive and motivated as you! Have you ever heard the saying “You are the company you keep?” Well that goes hand in hand, if you have negative friends you most likely will be negative! So keep positive people around and the negative ones distant.
TIP 7- Learn to love being alone! Being able to enjoy that time with yourself without having to always have the need to be around people is such an amazing quality to have.
TIP 8- Go slowly! Take your time not everything needs to be done in lightning speed. You will get where ever you need to be on your own time. You don’t need to rush focus on your goals not what other people are doing.
TIP 9- Listen to your criticism! This is one of the hardest things for me since I like to always be right! But listening and learning from your constructive criticism can really help you grow as a person.
TIP 10- Let go of people or things that are holding you back. If someone doesn’t believe in you stop letting them in your life and under your skin! Someone that doesn’t believe in you is NOT your friend and doesn’t have your best interest at all. When someone is acting like this towards you it is usually because they are jealous and are scared that they wont succeed within themselves.
I hope some of these tips will help y’all stay positive and motivated!
