We all get a little down sometimes and when you are down, it is hard to stay positive. Whether it is work, your family or your personal life, sh*t happens and it is ultimately up to you how to deal with the situation.
I have learned (the hard way) that holding onto a certain feeling for a period of time is not the best approach. If you are feeling sad, angry or just confused, you need to let out that emotion somehow. Depending on the circumstances, you will most likely feel better after getting it off of your chest. Whenever I have a problem, I usually look to Joe or my mom for advice and a second opinion. It’s always nice to hear from another perspective, even if you do not fully agree with their opinion.
For me, putting a pause on the daily grind and just taking a moment to breathe and look around helps me to clear my head. Instead of focusing on all of the things that are holding you back or making you stressed, take a minute to not think about anything and let your mind take a break.
A few things that have helped me stay positive:
1. Consider your strengths and not your weaknesses: we all have our faults, but focus on your best qualities and what makes you a better person.
2. Turning a negative into a positive: If you are in a struggling situation, try and find the positive in it and how you can become a better person by overcoming it.
3. Compliment someone: Your co-worker, a stranger or your best friend. No matter who it is we all need a little love and support to get us through the day. Giving off positive energy will draw it right back towards you.
Stay positive, and good things will come your way.
