Positivity is a mind-set that is hard to maintain in a negative world. Every day there are many new injustices to deal with, so how does a person keep themselves positive? This is a question that I’ve been pondering over for quite some time. I’m not very good at doing this myself, but here are a few of the things that I feel help.
Number one is that I exercise. Endorphins are wonderful things. As a person who is just this side of depressed, I find that doing something physical every single day is a must for my mental health.
Another important thing is that I take St. John’s Wort. I know that it doesn’t work for everyone, however, I have found benefits to taking it every day.
I have also found that it helps when I try to do yoga every day. I’m not good at it, I won’t be posting photos of myself doing any positions on social media. I haven’t ever taken a yoga class. However, I do Sun Salutation almost every day both as a meditation, and a stretch. Good stuff and I highly recommend doing it. If there is one thing we all need to do is stretch and calm down. This is most helpful.
And, finally, the last thing that I do is that I try to work on my goals every single day. I set goals for the week on Sundays, and try to get most of them done by Saturday. The more goals I accomplish, the more positive I feel.
Share your ideas on remaining positive. Maybe you’ve got some wonderful things I could add to my list.
