In this busy world, everybody is in the rat race to survive and prove themselves best. When we think of the word “positive,” most of us probably think “happy.” However, happiness isn’t the only type of positivity. There are many ways to be more positive in your life, even when you’re experiencing sadness, anger, or challenges. Research suggests that we have powerful capabilities to choose positive emotions and ways of thinking. In fact, our emotions literally change our bodies on a cellular level. Many of our experiences in life are a result of how we interpret and respond to our surroundings. Fortunately, rather than repressing or trying to “get rid” of negative feelings, we can choose to interpret and respond to them differently. You’ll find that with some practice, patience, and perseverance, you can become more positive. Now as a result of this huge workload or mental pressure stress developed. When stress started to grow we tend to lose focus on our job & daily work-routine. So to stay strong in this situation we need to become mentally alert & motivated. Here are some easy steps I’m going to share which help you to get motivated.
1. Mindset is everything
The way your mindset affects your energy, mood and overall happiness is huge. The great news is that if you are willing to put in the effort, you can change your mindset and make it work for you. Although it takes commitment and a willingness to make subtle changes to your actions and internal dialogue, improving your mindset is an incredibly powerful skill and once you master it, it can be used in all areas of your life. If you are currently working in the fitness industry, you may already be using mindset techniques with your clients – it’s time to practice what you preach!
2.Nutrition, exercise and hydration
As a well-aware person, you know this stuff. But unfortunately, when things get bad at work, your nutrition, exercise and hydration are usually the first things that go out the window. It’s easy to wallow in your misery with a bucket of ice-cream or a bottle of wine. And it’s difficult to force yourself to eat well, drink water and move regularly when you are feeling blue. Remember when you were studying and you learned all about endorphins? The science speaks for itself; get out there and burn off your bad mood!
3.Revise your work schedule
You probably noticed how your old busy schedule didn’t push you to get the job done. Now it’s time revise that schedule & make it a little interesting. First, notice your active hours when you stay alert most than other times of the day & schedule your busy works & projects during that time. Now as the time grows our attention & ability to focus tends to decrease. So as per that time keep your less hard works in that time zone.
4.Spend Quality Time
The best way to stay out of your stress is to spend quality time with your loved ones & family. Remind that they also expect that you spend some of your time with them. It will make both of you happy.
5.Accepted Where You are
You can’t change the way you think if you can’t (or won’t) identify the problem. Accepting that you have negative thoughts and feelings and that you don’t enjoy how you’re currently responding to them, can help you begin the process of change. Try not to judge yourself for your thoughts or feelings. Remember: the thoughts that pop up or the feelings you experience are not inherently “good” or “bad,” they’re just thoughts and feelings. What you can control is how you interpret and respond to them. Accept the things about yourself that you can’t change, too. For example, if you’re an introverted person who needs quiet time alone to “recharge,” trying to be an extrovert all the time will probably just make you feel drained and unhappy. Accept yourself for who you are right now, just as you are. You can then feel free to develop that self into the most positive self you can be!
6.Practice loving-kindness meditation
Also known as Metta Bhavana or “compassion meditation,” this type of meditation has roots in Buddhist traditions. It teaches you to extend the feelings of love you already feel for your closest family members and extend it to others in the world. It’s also been shown to improve your resilience — your ability to bounce back from negative experiences — and your relationships with others in just a few weeks. You can see positive effects in as little as five minutes a day.
7.Learn to reframe negative experiences
One of the mistakes people make is trying to avoid or ignore negative experiences. This makes sense, on some level, because they’re painful. However, trying to repress or ignore these experiences actually damages your ability to deal with them. Instead, consider how you can reframe these experiences. Can you learn from them? Can you view them differently?
8.Create life from within
If you want more success, focus on all the ways that you are already successful. If you want more love, focus on all the people that already care about you and the abundance of love you have to give to others. If you want to create greater health, focus on all the ways that you are healthy, and so on and so forth.
10. Don’t Sweat the Small stuff:
Everyone in life is confronted with things that seem important at the time but aren’t really an issue if we step back and have a proper perspective. Research has shown that those material things that may be getting you down won’t actually make you happy. In fact, focusing on things is often a way to make up for other needs that aren’t fulfilled. Research suggests that we need five basic things to flourish in life:
Engagement (getting really involved or swept up in something)
Relationships with others
Remember that you can define what these things mean for yourself! Don’t get hung up on what others have defined as “meaning” or “accomplishment.” If you don’t find personal meaning in what you do and how you act, you won’t feel good about it. Material objects, fame, and money really won’t make you happy.
