5 Outside Factors That Contribute To Overall Positivity
Hey, my name is Ryan. I’m 21 and married to the love of my life and we have a beautiful daughter. I love to write about positive things such as healthy eating, fitness, children, and even positivity itself on my blog, Thriving Lion “Naturally Healthy”.
While staying positive is a very agreed upon way to have a long, healthy, and happy life, there are a few outside factors that can contribute to your positivity, and overall happiness in life. If taken care of individually, your ability to keep your glass half full instead of half empty will sky-rocket!
Being careful of what you eat, and aware of what you’re putting in your body, is a great place to start to increase your ability to stay happy and positive. Eating fresh fruits and veggies, and keeping a balanced diet, will increase energy levels, keep you focused, and ultimately contribute to a happier and healthier life.
Clean and Declutter
Keeping a clean living space, workplace, and house is a great way to promote cleanliness, health, and optimism. I find that when my office space is clean, I have better ideas, think clearly, and my work flow and overall happiness increase.
Staying physically active promotes a feeling of self-worth, and helps keep self esteem high, and in turn positive thinking flows freely. Physical activity has been used to treat anti-positive psychological health such as depression and anxiety and proves to be a great way to stay happy and healthy.
Talk To Someone
Having that one relationship where you can speak freely and tell them everything on your mind is a great resource to have when trying to stay positive, happy, and healthy. If an issue in your life is not immediately resolved, having a friend who will take your side and listen to your story will help you solve the problem without ever facing direct confrontation with the original dispute. Use close friends and family to vent and talk to them about your issues.
One of the most important things that you can always do to stay optimistic is to make sure that you do the things that you love often. Having hobbies that relieve stress, focus thoughts, and contribute to your overall happiness is key when trying to live a happy life.
Stay Positive, Stay Happy, Live and Learn
