Hi KissesNYC readers! I am Lexie; I write lexieslifexo.wordpress.com, a fashion x beauty x lifestyle blog! Jess contacted me about being a guest writer and I couldn’t have been any more thrilled. For today’s post I am going to be giving advice on 3 ways to live a more positive life. These days I feel like it is so easy to get consumed in all of the negative whether it be reading tweets, interacting with people who have sour moods at school/work, or even just putting your focus on the stressful aspects of life. In times when negativity is present is when it is most important to put all of your concentration and energy towards being positive and optimistic. By staying hopeful and cheerful, not only will it improve your mood, but it will also rub off on the people you surround yourself with…it’s infectious in the best possible way! I have found that by the things that I do and how I live my life lead me to being a more positive person. Let’s get into the tips ->
1. Be the change you wish to see
Twitter is something that I am always on and I can’t tell you how many times I scroll through my feed and just see tweet after tweet with someone complaining about how “their life sucks” or “how stressed they are” or how “they hate everyone and everything”. Little does the person know that by tweeting these pessimistic things, they are attracting negative energy and more stress is just going to pile up. I think it is important to be a person on social media who tweets encouraging, optimistic, and positive quotes or messages because these tweets have the power to make someone’s day and allow someone to realize that what they are worried about is so trivial compared to how big, beautiful, and wonderful this world is. Be the change and start projecting positivity on twitter and other social media platforms!
2. Eat healthy
You may be thinking to yourself…how can eating healthy help me live a more positive life!? I have noticed that when I eat healthy, wholesome foods I tend to feel better about myself and it makes my outlook on life a lot more positive! I know that when I eat greasy food I always feel like crap after and then regret doing it in the first place so eating a healthy and balanced diet will help not only your body but will help you to be more positive!
3. Be Active
I have found that exercise is not only something that is great for your body but is also very therapeutic for your mind. It is a time that you can dedicate to bettering yourself and allows you a block of time out of your day to reflect on everything that has been going on in your life. Find either a class such as spin or yoga that makes you feel empowered and serene and gives you the space to think and reflect. I have found that reflecting allows you to live a more positive life because it really puts into perspective that what you are most likely stressing over is insignificant or out of your control and gives you the time to realize that this world is so big and your problems are really so small. Putting this into perspective really helps me to focus on all of the positive aspects of my life and allows me to appreciate the world more.
