How do you make optimism a habit in your life?
Maybe you find being positive easy, or perhaps it feels forced at times. Even for me, there are days where I struggle to “walk the talk”. So what helps?
Here are 3 ways to make optimism a habit:
1. Optimism grows from thankfulness. Be aware of all the opportunities you have in your life to be grateful. Express them!
2. Smile. Yes, smiling releases dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin which have a physiological impact. Even a forced smile works.
3. Surround yourself with positive words. What we think is important. When you find yourself dwelling on the negative, replace it with positive statements. Scripture verses work for me and a few days ago I wrote an article with 25 Sticky Postive Thoughts to see if any of them resonated for you. From your responses to that post, it seemed like you liked the idea.
