The energy you put out into the world will come back to you so good vibes only, Sass.
The energy you put out into the world is the energy you attract; if you think positive you will give out positive energy and attract positive things into your life, it’s as simple as that. If you don’t believe me try seeing the good in everything for at least a month and see what you notice. Why not use this month as the perfect place to start to be positive?
Staying positive is as easy as saying 1, 2, 3….
1. Repeat after me….
Start your morning with positive affirmations and before you say you don’t have time, well actually you do – when you are brushing your teeth, showering – play some affirmations in the background whilst you get ready. The Insight Timer is a great app for meditation and also has a ton of affirmations that come in all shapes and timings, perfect for working around your timing. Further to this you can stick some positive sayings and images around your room so you see them when you wake up.
2. Don’t link it.
Have you ever started your morning off on a ‘bad note’ you know the train is late, you spill your coffee and then you link everything and say ‘oh, what a bad day’ and then yeah a ton of other bad things happen because you’ve already thought you are going to have a day. When you think about it, it was a bad second and in the grand scheme of things it’s not really that bad – that late train can give you more time to read your book, that coffee can be replaced so how is your day bad? It is all about your mindset – establish a solution to the ‘issues’ (like we’ve just done) and tell yourself you have so many more hours in the day, it will only get better. If you think that it will get better, it actually will but you have to believe it.
3. Focus on the good, see the funny side & don’t stress is.
You can’t change things that happen to you so rather then get stressed or angry about something you might as well chill, laugh and go with the flow. For example, you miss your train and have to wait 20 minutes for the next one. Start by repeating it’s not the end of the world, there is another train coming. Yes, you might be a bit late for work but it can’t be helped, it’s out of your control. Then think about all the things you can do in that extra 20 minutes you know have – read more of your book, do a bit of internet shopping, catch up on the news. That late train does not phase you.
Stressing about things won’t change anything in fact it makes you feel bad so take a deep breathe, laugh about it and let it go.
At the end of the day remember we are all human and yes there will be moments where you can’t be positive 24/7, but when you notice you are having negative thoughts, acknowledge them and write down exactly what is bothering you, then think of a positive solution to it.
