How To Be More Positive

Life gets us down sometimes. We can have a bad week at work, a period of weight gain or a break up – and sometimes those things can happen all at once. Then there are the times in life when we have “why me” moments; the tears well up and you have a mini break down. This kind of negativity can stay with you for days or even weeks, making it easy to slip into a constant bad mood when you’re not having the best time at work, or when you have to catch public transport because you’ve crashed your car!

However, no matter how bad things get, you should always try to keep a more positive outlook on life and a great attitude. Those who are happier and more positive actually live longer than those who are angry and negative. For your mental, emotional and physical health, it’s best to look on the bright side of life by employing a few little techniques to up that positivity.

Be thankful

Gratitude is important – and even when you’re having a bad day, you should still be thinking of the things that you are grateful for. By separating the positive from the negative and being thankful for the positives, you will be able to lift your mood and learn not to dwell on the things that have gone wrong that day, but instead focus on the things that have gone right.

Have faith in something

Whether it’s religion, meditation or even yoga, put your faith into something that you know you can turn to when things aren’t going your way. Whether it’s your dog, God, or a passion like painting, put your faith into what you believe is going to help you when you’re at your worst.


Exercise puts us in a better mood. It releases endorphins that make us happy and it also makes us feel better about ourselves. When you love yourself, you’re more positive than when you hate yourself – exercise is great way to close that gap of self-hate.

Believe in yourself

Self-belief is so important as it can often dictate whether you follow your dreams or settle for good enough. Believing that you can do anything and having that emotional self-push can help you to be more positive and achieve the outcomes that you desire.

Surround yourself with positive people

Surrounding yourself with positive people is almost crucial to having a more positive outlook on life. Stress and negativity is contagious, but so is happiness. By surrounding yourself with happy and positive people, you’re more likely to have a better outlook on life.

4 Attitudes Which Are A Major Turn Off

Surely we have all encountered some interesting personalities through work, school and family life, some of which we love and others that are difficult to be around. Not everyone is the same, but try to surround yourself with people that make you feel good about yourself. If a sudden change in behaviour is evident, rather than jumping ship, have a chat to your friend and see what is really behind a change in personality.

We’ve compiled a list of  common personality killers which can really be a turn off:

Negative Nancy

Although it’s difficult to find the positive out of a bad situation, does it mean that it’s okay to be constantly negative? For those who believe in positive affirmations, this is definitely a step in the wrong direction. If you or somebody you surround yourself with is constantly picking at the negatives, try to remind them that good things are always around the corner. Every situation can’t always be bad, so try to remind yourself that the positives always outweigh the negatives.

Mr Moody

A moody personality is difficult to befriend because it’s hard to determine how they will react to anything or anyone. They may be going through a difficult time in their life, hormonal or just cranky in nature. Either way, not an attractive quality in a friend or partner.

The Overconfident One

There is probably a fine line where confidence is desirable in one’s personality, and when it’s simply unbearable. If their only interest is being popular and well liked, their intention won’t involve getting to know you. This attitude may change over time, but just be weary that overconfident people can also act very narcissistic.

Mademoiselle Patronising

We all love a bit of comedic and harmless banter between friends, in relationships and amongst family, but patronising another person is really stepping over the mark. A condescending comment is not only insincere but if you are at the receiving end could be quite hurtful to hear. Some people have boundaries, and be careful not to cross them with patronising or scornful comments at the expense of amusing yourself.
