Find the good and positive in every situation: This isn’t difficult. In every situation, there must be something good, happy, or amusing. Why not focus on it? Your mind might drag you down, to think about negativity and difficulties, because that’s how it is accustomed to thinking. Don’t let it. Endeavor to change the way you look at things, focusing more on the bright side of life.
Focus on solutions: It’s easy to find problems and difficulties everywhere because it requires nothing, but a negative attitude. Instead of focusing on the problems, focus on solutions.
Watch your thoughts: Whenever you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, change them to pleasant thoughts. Do this time and again.
Watch funny movies: Prefer to watch funny comedies that make you laugh, rather than thrillers and violent movies, especially before bedtime.
Reading: Each day, find the time to read a few pages from an inspiring book or article.
Look at what you have already accomplished and focus on it: Often, we start the day to complete several goals or tasks, but we are unable to complete them. At the end of the day, you might feel frustrated and unhappy because you haven’t been able to do all of those things.
Each day does something good for yourself: It can be something small, such as buying a book, baking a cake, going to the theatre, visiting friends, or inviting friends to your house.
Seek the company of happy people: Happiness is contagious. If you are in the company of happy people, there is a great chance that you will be infected by their happiness, provided you don’t focus on unhappiness while in their company.
Don’t take anything too personally: Do your best to stay a little detached when things do not progress as you want them to progress. Don’t allow negative remarks or behavior affect your mind and feelings. You might not succeed the first, second, or third time, but if you are persistent, you will eventually succeed.
Listen to relaxing, uplifting music: It’s said that music is the language of the soul. Listen often, to relaxing music, or any kind of music that uplifts your spirit.
