Energy flows where attention goes. In our day to day life, many distractions, negative thoughts, people, and other external ‘negative energies’ can leave us faced with challenges. If these distractions grab our attention, then this is where our energy will flow and our problems will multiply. The good thing is we can learn to train our brain to be positive, and stay positive.
Here Are 7 Tips To Help Train Your Brain To Stay Positive
1. Be grateful
“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.” – Henry Ward Beecher
When we are grateful for what we have the universe rewards us with more of it. That is how the law of attraction works. Be thankful every day for every little joy you receive. It can be difficult to think of something right away but you can realize the goodness in little things like you saw the sunrise today. Not everyone gets that opportunity. When someone does you a favor, thank them. Remember that they weren’t obliged to do that for you, but they still did, simply out of the goodness of their heart.
2. Stay focused
Stay focused on your tasks and don’t let your mind dwell on negative thoughts. We all know that ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And it couldn’t be more true. When we are focused on all things positive, there is no room for negative energy. Unprecedented things may come up while you’re focused but that’s where other exercises can help you stay positive.
As I said earlier, energy flows where attention goes. Stay active and stay focused.
3. Stay centered
There will be negative energies trying to consume your confidence and positive attitude throughout the day. Staying centered will help keep you from being derailed by those negative energies. To stay centered you can try different centering exercises such as yoga, meditation, walking in nature, or even deep breathing.
When you’re centered your mind is at peace and in this peace, your soul speaks. The centering exercises raise your vibe and fill you with energy so strong that your spirit is unshakeable. All of this helps you stay positive.
4. Take care of yourself
Eat, drink, and sleep well. The food we eat and the amount of sleep we get has a huge impact on our health and our mood. The deficiency of certain vitamins and minerals, as suggested by research, can cause depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses.
There is evidence that proves that lack of sleep can cause irritation, anger, and sadness in people. Sleep well and sleep on time rather than staying up all night and you will realize you’re happier and more friendly. There is a poem we have all read in our childhood – ‘Early to bed and early to rise makes a man, healthy, wealthy, and wise.’ Get proper sleep and your mind can rest. Take care of yourself; if you cannot love yourself, how will someone else?
5. Help others
There isn’t anything like kindness that gives you more pleasure and satisfaction. Help those in need, help others stay positive, and it will help you stay positive throughout the day. Don’t avoid people in fear of contracting their negative energy. Jump in headfirst with positive energy to fill them with positivity and brighten their and your day.
When you help someone in need they might not be able to offer you back anything but smiles and blessings, and life converts these smiles and blessings 10 fold and returns it to you.
