Our calendars are constantly full and while we’re reminding ourselves that we can’t get it all done, we desperately try to. We hurry to cross things off our to-do list and yet it keeps growing. Don’t let the everyday errands and work bog you down so much that you forget to enjoy life. Living a positive life reduces stress, reduces physical signs of stress and increases general happiness. Here are three ways to live a positive life:
Smile more—With our agendas full and a to-do list that never ends, it’s hard to remember to stop, smile and appreciate life. People like other people who smile. Smiling more helps you think more positively about life and also cheers up another person's day.
Think positively—Smiling helps trick your brain into thinking positively, but it’s hard to train your brain to think positively all the time. Every night before falling asleep, keep a journal of ten things you are grateful for. It could be a delicious meal or that you got a raise that day. Just remember to take time to appreciate life!
Be thoughtful—Create more positivity in your life by having genuine conversations. Ask people how their life is going and truly care. Remember specific conversation topics: that their mom might be in the hospital or their niece just graduated college. Follow up and show them that they matter.
