5 Ways To Stay Positive

Positivity is hard to come by especially when your really not feeling in the mood or you've had a really bad day. I thought it would be a great idea to share with you some things I find can really cheer you up or add a spring to your step!

     1. Start the day with your favourite music

Nothing beats waking up to your favourite song or melody. Set it as your ringtone for your alarm so when you wake up you feel much more energetic and happier than what you would usually feel when you wake up. 

     2. Make a Positivity Poster/Collage

Get a piece of A3 paper and stick all the images/quotes on it that encourage you and make you feel happy. I would advise putting it above your bed or somewhere you often look so when your not in the mood you can take a quick glance at it and be reminded of happy things!

     3. Smile at someone

Most people underestimate how much a smile can do for someone. Remember smiles are contagious and brighten up anyones day. Smiling even when you don't feel like it can really enhance your mood and get rid of all that negativity inside of you.

    4. Set an inspirational/motivational image as your background/lock screen on your phone 

In this day and age, most of us spend a good amount of time checking/playing on our phone. Wouldn't it be great to go on your phone after you've had a rough time and see a quote/image that truly inspires you and turns that frown upside down!

   5. Plug in your headphones and take a walk 

Nature walks are one of my favourite things to do especially when I have music in my ears as it really lifts my mood. Some quiet time alone and strolling through the beauty of the outdoors can truly take away any worries/doubts/negativity you may have and it's also  exercise so why not?

Thank you for taking the time to read this post! I hope you got something out of it and may use one of these ideas next time your not in the best mood. I would love to hear some of the ways you keep positive, let me know in the comments and have a great day!
