Why you should remain optimistiс. It’s challenging to be an optimist these days with the pandemic ravaging the world. And it is much easier to be a pessimist and say, “Well, everything is bad again. I knew it.”
Still, being an optimist is not just better, but much more useful. Optimists live longer, recover faster from severe diseases, suffer less from mental illness, and deal better with the stress.
An optimistic attitude to life reduces the susceptibility to depression and anxiety. Reducing stress levels is not the only benefit of optimism.
A positive emotional state reduces chronic pain and reduces the real threat of heart disease. Also, a positive attitude and emotional balance increase the body’s resistance to viruses.
Optimists are curious, active, more successful in their careers, and tend to create or invent. The optimist’s thinking has more freedom. Such a person is always open to “new world.”
If he or she fails, the optimist quickly gathers and starts all over again, confidently walking towards the goals and new horizon.
Also, optimism is contagious: if your partner is optimistic, you will likely notice more than just the dark side of life as the partner is with whom we spend the most time and whose influence has the most significant effect on us.
Optimists know how to give good examples so that their partners follow them. They lead while others follow. When your partner is optimistic and healthy, it can lead to similar results in your life.
The advantages of optimism are clear. Is it possible to learn it, then what does it take? The good news is that everyone can train their optimism!
To acquire an optimistic view of things, you need to perform “exercises for optimism”.
They do not relate to any formal behaviour but correct the attitude to others through pleasant activities: encouraging people who thought they have failed, a daily walk in the fresh air, showing love to a loved one, or giving some useful things to those in need.
Any action or activity that helps you relieve tension by generating positive, peaceful thoughts will gradually help your brain get used to optimism.
Create a supportive space of positivity around you. Create a list of motivating and inspiring phrases and view them daily.
Listen to inspiring audiobooks or videos once a day. Communicate with friends or people who are optimistic by nature and have achieved success.
Limit your communication with pessimistic people and “energy vampires”. Find positive moments in every situation that happens to you.
Once you have reached a psychological balance, maintaining positive thinking in the future occurs naturally. The process of replacing negative thoughts with positive ones is straightforward and involves several key steps.
Identify the points that you would like to change. Remove the sources of negativity from your life and learn to confront them with more confidence.
Reduce their significance and always focus on the positive aspects.
Follow the way you think. Several times a day, take a break from your daily activities and evaluate your thoughts.
If the negative ones prevail, try to turn them into a positive direction or remove them entirely from your head. Maintain a healthy sense of humour, laugh or smile more often, and joke at every opportunity that presents itself before you.
Don’t you know that almost all people, no matter the meanings of life they are being guided by, want to be happy? But that is just the simple truth!
Honestly, if you are optimistic, it is much easier to find a state of happiness!
