Looking for some positive changes to make to your life? With the right strategy, anything is possible, you just need to remind yourself that you are incredible and capable of achieving it. Bringing more positivity into your life isn’t a huge task, it requires a certain effort of thought and willingness to change.
Even with the state of the world now, there are ways to embrace positivity and start to see that even negative events can have positive outcomes. But you need to make a point to focus on positivity and being a positive person. Here are a few tips to help you embrace the positive and forget the negative…
1. Change ‘one day’ into ‘day one’
This applies to everything in life. Everything you’ve been putting off with the promise of ‘one day…’ can be started right now. We all need a helping hand and a push in the right direction to stop procrastinating. It can be more comfortable to put things off but pushing yourself out of your comfort zone will help you be more positive and confident.
You can motivate yourself with a good fitness planner, like the Fit Planner for example, and attach progress photos to every section to keep pushing yourself to make changes.
2. Plan your future
Working aimlessly with no big plans for the future can seriously dampen your positivity. While you might feel productive, if you have nothing to look forward to, and no real structure for how you want the future to look, you can easily get demotivated.
Sit down with a notebook and start planning your life. Where do you want to be in five years’ time? Ten years? And what steps do you need to take to get there? Do you want to buy a house? Be the founder of a company? Even little goals like your health, fitness, and wellbeing can go into your planner and become a daily goal to work towards. You might decide you need to start saving now for a wedding in two years, or that you need to work out every day to get your fitness levels up. When you’re looking for positive changes to make to your life, planning is the first and easiest one!

3. Stick to one routine
If you want to make positive changes to your life, don’t try to do everything all at once. Stick to one super easy routine for four days maximum before you add another good habit. For example, if you want to drink more water, give yourself a goal to do that for four days, before you start adding meditation, yoga, workouts, studying or any other goals. And only add them incrementally, this will keep you motivated and help you to build better habits overall, rather then overwhelming you with more life changes you need to make.
4. Bring positivity to those around you
Focusing on the good, even during stressful or negative times, takes a lot of mental strength. It’s not as easy as forcing a smile or trying to be joyful, it takes dedication. Spending each day writing out the things you’re thankful for, the small moments that make you happy and the things you want to remember forever will help your brain make positive connections, which can strengthen relationships, improve your overall health and fitness, and make you feel more mentally strong against stress.
We designed our Gratitude Journal with this in mind, each daily prompt is long enough to allow you to be detailed in your answers, and helps you to really think about the happy moments you want to remember for life.
