Mindfulness tip of the week: Look for the positive

The way we view the world and what we see affects what we see. What we see affects how we feel and our mood.

Have you ever known someone who is always a negative Nelly? This person has done the exact opposite of looking for the positive. The negative Nelly is not only feeling down and frustrated, but is also being perceived negatively by others. Who wan’t to be around negativity, right?

It is actually possible to trigger our mood and general view into the positive, if we look for the positive moments of generosity, kindness, and beauty throughout the day.

A good way to start practicing the positive view is by focussing on the small moments – the warmth of the sun ☀️ , a smile ?, or the beauty of a flower ?

Even though these moments might seem small and insignificant, but they help tune your brain into focussing on the positive.

Another great way to practice this is by keeping a gratitude journal , where you write down what you are grateful for each day and thereby are forcing the brain to think on positive moments from the day.
