The International Positive Thinking Day is celebrated annually on September 13th.
Most of us associate the word ‘Positive’ with just being ‘happy’. Well, partly it is, but not just that.
Positivity is the practice of being optimistic in attitude, that focuses on the bright side of life, demonstrating joy, hope, gratitude, interest, pride, love and inspiration, amongst other qualities.
Positive thinking is not a concept that everyone believes in and follows. Some do actually consider it to be nonsense, however, apart from the growing scientific evidence that proves the power of positivity, we believe there’s more good than harm in having an optimistic outlook on life!
When we’re positive we feel better about life in general – we feel more peaceful, happier and calm, which makes us more likeable and sociable.
Positive emotions create a positive lifestyle. What would you rather be? Happy all the time or constantly angry? Would you rather carry a big smile all day long or a permanent frown?
Thinking positively will help you accomplish dreams and goals. A study of over 275,000 people found that the happiest people owe their success, in part, to their optimistic and positive outlook, rather than attributing their happiness to their successful results. (full review here)
The mind has a strong effect on the body and on health, hence why you feel better and healthier when you think positively.
Is it any wonder that we want to be around positive people, and avoid negative ones? Remember that both positive and negative attitudes are contagious.
In order to stay positive, we enjoy a dose of motivation… daily! 🙂
“People often say that motivation doesn’t last.
Well neighter does bathing –
that’s why we recommend it daily.”
