Life can get quite overwhelming at times for even the most positive of people, we are tested each day in our strengths and weaknesses to grow more as an individual person. I am a firm believer we are not given more than we can handle, even if what we can handle seems to be way more than we thought capable of. From time to time my positive attitude is tested, whether it be a week full of mishaps or a full day that just seems to be spiraling downward; life happens and in turn my mind is forced to remember to focus on the positive as well as what I want in my world. A simple thought truly can change your world, but it doesn’t happen right away and it’s not an easy task to think clearly when you are frazzled with life.
Here are some things I do to keep my mind on track for my positive future when times get tough … hopefully they help you too!
Head to the Beach For some Sunshine
My family loves being outside in the sunshine during the Spring and Summer months. The warmth of that sun shining down upon you simply warms the soul making it easy to be happier. Sunshine always helps to clear the mind too, whether you are swimming in the water, playing ball, building a castle in the sand or simply lounging watching the family laugh while they play, a day at the beach can certainly help to alleviate stress and allow your mind to recoup back to a happy place.
Search for Positive Quotes and Sayings Online
Sometimes when I am feeling low or out of positive energy, I will get online to search some great happy quotes from various famous English Literature authors. Taking time to look up famous positive quotes or even funny quotes in image form can be useful to help regain positive attitude and get back on track for the day. Some of my personal favorite quotes were shared the other day in the article 5 Brilliant Quotes About the Power of Positive. A quote a day helps keep the stress away!
Take a Fifteen Minute Nap
Believe it or not, a fifteen minute nap can recoup your mind easily. If you sleep longer than fifteen minutes you may feel groggy and more down and stressed than you did when you laid down.I have found just fifteen to twenty minutes at most for a nap when you are feeling overwhelmed can really help build your mind back up to focus on moving forward in a positive way.
These few things that I mentioned above really have helped keep me moving forward in keeping that positive mindset working. I have seen many amazing things line up just right because of my skill to think positive and truly focus on thinking about what I want and need versus what I am going through or what I do not want to have happen.
