If you have a world-wise attitude towards the world, you may roll your eyes when you hear about things like positive thinking. “Get real,” you might think. But there is room in your life for a less dark view of the world. You don’t have to give up cynicism 24⁄7, but why not open your eyes to a different look at the world? Here are some ways to have a more upbeat attitude:
Fake it ‘til you make it
Try for one day to not say anything negative. Look on the bright side of everything you see. It sounds silly and ridiculous, but you may actually feel more positive at the end of the day.
Surround yourself with more positive people
It is all too easy to throw a pity party when you are around lots of negative people. If you spend more time with upbeat people, some of it might rub off on you.
Look on the bright side
That may sound ridiculous to you. But you’re still breathing, you have your health, you can still think and reason. You have many good things going on in your life. Why not appreciate them? What do you have to lose?
