A Simple Cheat Sheet To Having A Positive Attitude

Life has a tendency of knocking us down. While it definitely sucks, I never let it stop me from having a big, stupid smile on my face and neither should you.


Let It Out


Give yourself time to process and feel your emotions in private. Cry or yell if you feel the need. Just get it out and get it over with. By doing this, you won’t be leaving a chance for those emotions to come out at any inconvenient moment.

The longest you should let yourself bask in your emotions is five minutes to an hour depending on your situation. After that, it’s time for you to move on and get back to living your life.


Do Something That Makes You Happy


Whatever it may be, do it. No excuses although try to keep your spending minimal (so no shopping sprees). If you like going for walks in the park, go take one. If you like spending time with your cat, go snuggle him. If you like surfing, go catch yourself a gnarly wave! Doing something you love that makes you genuinely happy will help limit negative thoughts.


Change Your Attitude


Stop seeing things in such a negative aspect! Everything happens for a reason. A good reason.  You may not see what that reason is immediately but you will nonetheless. Believe in it and make it your motto.


Being positive doesn’t mean you don’t ever have negative thoughts. It just means you don’t let those thoughts control your life. -unknown


Toxicity Cleanse


Get rid of negative people from your life. If they happen to be close relatives or someone you work with on a day-to-day basis, then limit how frequently you associate with them.


Positive Influences

Follow positive blogs (Ahem, LIFESTYLECURLS!), Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accounts. Surround yourself with positive people! They will encourage you to maintain your new positive lifestyle and they may bring you more happiness than you could ever imagine.
