11 Steps to Boost a Positive Attitude Every Day 2021

 When you want to accomplish anything or enhance the quality of your life, you must have a positive mindset.
Most successful books will emphasize the importance of positive thinking, yet it is frequently easier said than done.

This post will provide you with 11 suggestions for keeping a good attitude no matter what is happening in your life. 

11 Steps to Boost a Positive Attitude Every Day 2021

1. You Create Your Reality

It is critical to understand that your reality is determined by how you respond to the outside environment.
When anything occurs, you have the option of deciding whether it is a good or bad circumstance and reacting appropriately.

For example, your first response would most certainly be one of rage, frustration, and despair if you lose your job.
What if you could flip those feelings around and see the event as an opportunity?

You now have the opportunity to choose a career where you may acquire new skills and perhaps be happy.
Meanwhile, you have some free time to consider where you want the next chapter of your life to go.

2. Get a Good Start to Your Day

Most individuals have to drag themselves out of bed, which sets the tone for the rest of their day.
Optimistic individuals have a long-term morning routine that emphasizes how wonderful life is and how grateful they are to be alive.

I used to wake up and instantly play Bon Jovi's "It's My Life" to put myself in a good mood.
I now begin my day by reading or listening to something encouraging.
Whether you have one minute, fifteen minutes, or an hour to devote to your routine, you may begin the day in a manner that makes you feel calm and ready for the day ahead.

3. Physical activity is nature's feel-good drug.

Because of the happy chemicals it releases into the circulation; exercise is an excellent method to maintain a cheerful mindset.

According to one research, individuals engaged in high-intensity interval training, moderate continuous activity, or no exercise had the most significant reduction in depression symptoms and stress[1].
As a result, if you want to exercise to feel better, get your heart rate up, but don't push too hard, or you'll raise total stress.

Also, keep in mind that exercise may include a wide range of activities.
If you dislike jogging, you might try dance or kickboxing instead.
Put on some cheerful music to boost your mood even further.

4. Use Books, Audio, and Videos to Flood Your Brain with Positive Thoughts

There are millions of incredible books, podcasts, and films available to you from individuals who are inspiring and living the life of their goals.
Learn how they think and what they do to build the life they desire by tapping into their positive emotions and experience.

You may do this first thing in the morning or when exercising, eating, commuting, cooking, or cleaning... there is always time for optimism.

5. Your language shapes your thoughts.

Minor adjustments in your language may have a significant impact on how you think and behave.
Do you say "fine" or "not too bad" when someone meets you and asks how you're doing?
Consider what this language is conveying to others... and yourself.

I always respond with "excellent," "wonderful," or "amazing."
This not only reminds me that life is lovely, but it also generally helps the other person move toward a more cheerful mindset.

Take some time to examine how your inner voice communicates with you.
Is it good or bad language?
If it's excessively critical or negative, it may be time to practice mindfulness meditation to transform your inner critic into an inner cheerleader.

6. Surround yourself with upbeat people.

You will often have the same level of health, wealth, and lifestyle as the five individuals with whom you spend the most time.

So, if you want to be fit, start hanging out with other fit individuals.
Do you want to start your own business?
Then socialize with company owners.
And if you want to be optimistic, surround yourself with cheerful people[2].

7. Demonstrate Your Appreciation for Others

You may create a positive chain reaction by complimenting people on a job well done, their clothing, or their smile.
Stop whining and start seeing all of the wonders that are going on around you.

Don't you love it when you get praise from someone else?
So, if you want to get more, start giving them out and see what happens to the people around you.

According to one research, individuals who wrote letters of appreciation reported substantial improvements in happiness[3].
If you don't want to write a letter, send a pleasant SMS to someone who just helped you out, or send an email praising your colleague for constantly picking up the slack around the workplace.
Take some time to express appreciation for whatever it is.

8. Trash in, trash out

This is a programming phrase that means that the output is only as good as the input.
If you feed yourself negativity all day, it's pretty clear that you'll be feeling negative as well.

Much of the media feeds on negativity.
Put yourself (and others) on a harmful diet and see how much simpler it is to keep a happy mindset.

9. Put a Stop to Negative Thoughts

It's challenging to maintain a continuous state of positivity, and negative ideas will arise from time to time.
These will be more frequent at first but will lessen as you put the ideas we've discussed into practice.
When you begin to notice negative thoughts, you may employ a pattern interrupt to halt them.

The goal is to break your existing thinking pattern and replace it with a more optimistic perspective.
Setting a visual or aural cue is one method to do this.
It may be as essential as a bracelet worn every day or the sound of a vehicle passing outside your window.
Use the cue to redirect your thoughts to something good whenever you see or hear it.

10. Live a Life of Gratitude

So many good things happen over our day, yet we often dismiss them in favor of allowing one unpleasant remark or incident to destroy our attitude.
Keeping a gratitude notebook in which you write down things you are thankful for each night or throughout the day may be beneficial.

If you're reading this, you presumably have a roof over your head and food in your stomach, which is a daily battle for most of the globe.
However, we often take these things for granted and fail to recognize how fortunate we are.

Try concentrating your thoughts on what you do have rather than what you don't.
According to one research, thinking about previous events with appreciation may improve hope and happiness[4].
That's a compelling incentive to give it a go right now.

11. Replace Your Batteries

Taking the time to replenish your batteries is one step to developing a good mindset.
This might involve dedicating a few hours on the weekend to reading an uplifting book or taking a few weeks off.
It will assist in recharging your motivation in life.

If you cannot travel, you may have a staycation, often known as a "home vacation," in which you disconnect from the outside world and spend time doing activities you like.
