Positivity and ways to boost it

The influence you can have on your life when you embrace the power of optimism is incredible. It makes each moment something to savour and each goal worthwhile to pursue. You can’t help but be upbeat if you think positively, even if everyone else is down. You’re happier, less depressed, and more content with your life as a result. Positive thinking has a long list of advantages. So, how can you reprogram your mind to think positively?

1. Check to see if you’re thinking positively.

2. Enhance your ability to remember positive information

Did you know that simply memorising lists of cheerful words might help you become more positive? That’s correct. Just like you learn concepts in a classroom on an education app, learning these words can help you grow more positive. It’s because forcing your brain to utilise positive phrases on a regular basis causes these words (and their underlying meaning) to become more accessible, connected, and active in your brain. As a result, when you’re trying to recall a word or thought from your memory, the positive ones are more likely to come to mind first.

If you’re not sure which terms are positive, consult a dictionary. Thousands of words have been methodically measured by psychologists to discover how positive or negative they are.

Try Googling “most optimistic words” and giving a read to some of the top winners if you’re having trouble thinking positively. It can help your brain develop in ways that make implementing these positive thinking tactics easier.

3. Don’t undervalue your accomplishments.

We have a poor habit of undervaluing our accomplishments and failing to appreciate our victories fully. “Anyone could learn pleasant words,” for example, or “I didn’t improve my contentment as much as I hoped to,” for example. However, this ignores the effort you made—effort that not everyone could make. Instead of praising little victories, these statements downplay them.

I used to have a lot of trouble with this one. People would congratulate me for starting my own company, one that helps people improve their happiness and well-being. “Anyone could do it,” I’ll say. “I was just fortunate.” This kind of orientation minimises all of the tiny efforts I do to make my company successful. It was possible for anyone to accomplish it, but they didn’t. That’s exactly what I did.

Recognize the work you put forth—effort that not everyone puts forth.You are in the same boat. You’ve made an effort to increase your ability to think positively by reading this article. Give yourself a pat on the back for that! Keep track of your victories as you work toward positive thinking, happiness, or overall health, whatever your aim is. Take a moment to rejoice at each minor victory.

4. Improve your brain’s capacity to process positive data

Once your brain has developed strong neural networks for positive phrases, ask your brain to use this optimistic information in novel ways to extend these networks. You may, for instance, learn optimism words and set an alarm for an hour later to recall them in reverse order.

Alternatively, you might print these words on cards, split them into two pieces, shuffle them all together, and then identify the card that matches each of them. The word “rejoice,” for example, would be split into two parts: “re” and “joice.” In order to match the word pieces, your brain must sift through a large amount of positive data. When you strive to think positively, this memory recall of positive words may help you.

5. Focus on the positive aspects of life.

Are you one of those individuals that observes the negative aspects of life, such as when someone overtakes you in traffic or your food doesn’t taste as nice as it should? Then your brain has most likely been conditioned to focus on the bad and has become rather adept at it. Undoing the training might be quite difficult. So, instead of focusing on the negative, teach your mind to focus on the positive.

Simply concentrate on positive information on a regular basis, and move your attention in that direction.
