Why do we spend so much time thinking about the negatives?
Dwelling on the tiny injustices and trivial occurrences which damage our egos…
Here is a great video about the importance to think about the positives, and how to do it –
One of the best tips, that we can probably all relate to us when you’ve come home from work. Tell your loved one(s) specifically about what was good about your day. Don’t go into the negative things.
This will prove very difficult at first!
This is one way that you can train yourself to focus on the upside of your day. Other techniques include writing down what you’re grateful for each day.
Positive affirmations are also simple, yet effective. For example, next time you go into the gym, think or state out loud – “this is going to be an amazing workout”
I think being positive is a very important aspect of parenting. Children copy their parents, so try remember this next time you start moaning about things that don’t really matter.
