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.
6. Leave the past behind (heal from within)
We can’t be at peace on the outside until we are at peace on the inside. Don’t hold on to bad experiences. Let go of these and make a place for the light of positivity. When you are on the quest of finding yourself there is an opportunity to heal the wounds and scars left behind by the traumatic experiences from the past, bad relationships, or childhood abuses. We have the power to transform; just learn to let go.
7. Follow your passion
Do what you love. This helps you stay positive throughout the day. If you’re stuck in a job you don’t like, you will naturally be frustrated and sad and even the slightest of hitches will annoy and irritate you. If your job doesn’t take you where you wish to be and if it yields only regret, it’s time you switch it.
Being in alignment with what your soul needs is one of the most important aspects of staying positive throughout your life. You make your decisions and you’re accountable for them. No one can force you and you need to be confident about it. Don’t let anyone or anything come between you and your passion. When you’re clear about what you want in life it saves you a lot of time and drama.
