Enjoy Life More with Positive Thinking
How you answer this question about positive thinking may reflect your outlook on life, your attitude toward yourself and whether you're optimistic or pessimistic. In fact, some studies show that these personality traits - optimism and pessimism can affect many areas of your health and well-being. People with a positive frame of mind think about possibilities, growth, expansion and success. They think in terms of 'I can', 'I am able' and 'I will succeed'.
How can you develop this state of mind? You can do so by practising changing negative self-talk into positive spins.
Happiness is largely a choice. You can choose to be happy at work. Sound simple? Yes. But, simplicity is often difficult to put into action.
- So, think positively about your work
- Dwell on the aspects of your work you like
- Avoid negative people and gossip
- Find co-workers you like and enjoy and spend your time with them
- You can choose to be happy at work.
If you tend to have a negative outlook, don't expect to become an optimist overnight. But with practice, eventually your self-talk will contain less self-criticism and more self-acceptance. You may also become less critical of the world around you. Practising positive self-talk will improve your outlook. When your state of mind is generally optimistic, you're able to handle everyday stress in a more constructive way.
