3 Awesome Traits of a Positive Person’s Lifestyle

3 Awesome Traits of a Positive Person’s Lifestyle

What are some awesome traits that describe a positive person’s lifestyle? To enumerate three: (1) resilience, (2) determination, and (3) motivation. All of these help comprise an effective positive attitude; helpful hints do exist in order to cultivate positivity, as well as a series of must-do rituals for transforming yourself into a positive individual. Only you can control your life. And, most importantly, please keep this in mind after you read this article: everybody can be positive. Here are 3 awesome traits of a positive person’s lifestyle.

1. Resilience

For starters, resilience enables you to quickly return to normal after a hardship, such as stress. Resilience also means focusing on what the individual can control. (Of course, there are variables that you cannot). Hopefully, adopting resilience might result in improved ability to manage personal difficulty. In turn, being a resilient individual might lead to cultivating the descriptive traits of determination and motivation. Resilience is a brilliant method of self-improvement. To assist with developing this trait, exercise and mindfulness are essential. Thanks to resilience, an individual may also discover a huge amount of untapped potential.

2. Determination

Second, determination is the ability to stay on track regardless of any hardship. Individuals with this trait go all-out with their efforts, no matter what. And, most importantly, doing so might encourage you to think, “No excuses,” to do anything that is desired, such as working hard. In other words, this high-powered phrase means do whatever you’re thinking about and you’ll be proud of yourself. Just stay strong and make those aspirations come true. Nothing should get in the way of achieving whatever you set your mind to. As with resilience, determination facilitate feelings of positivity. And, lastly, if you get stuck, think about why you started in the first place; for other inspiration, there are songs about optimism and remaining focused despite adversity. You’ll be destined for failure if determination is not a descriptive characteristic of yours. In short, “Never give up,” and the aforementioned, “No excuses,” are good statements that should inspire you to keep trying to accomplish your objective.

3. Motivation

Finally, motivation gives you an inspirational reason to accomplish any given task. For example, interscholastic athletics give student-athletes a brilliant reason to take their academics seriously: Good attendance and grades result in remaining eligible to participate in practice and competition. Furthermore, teammates and friends give you additional motivation to stay out of trouble and boost your overall well-being. This results in yet another benefit: Willpower.

You may also experience success if you stick with a certain habit for an certain period of time. Self-motivation can be described as a multi-step process, starting with tiny procedures. From there, you should work upward in terms of task size. Moreover, visualizing your goals is a good idea; it acts as a great inspiration to follow through with your objective. However, you should understand that Rome wasn’t built in a day. The same goes for personal dreams and aspirations; most things are not achieved in 24 hours or less. In other words, progress matters more than getting everything correct right off the bat. Again, you’ll find a sense of accomplishment if you stay motivated. Failing to stay motivated might result in a good reason to avoid a task.

Remember, we are all meant to be positive; you can change your own life solely by becoming positive. There is only one person who controls your life: You. Everybody would be happier if they demonstrated the proper positive traits. And, of course, your dreams might come true with the proper attitude and work ethic. Unless you are resilient, determined, and motivated, you might be headed for a life of constant negativity, stress, and failure.

5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

1. Get Rationally Optimistic

Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

The result: no more mental stress.

2. Unplug

Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

3. Easy on the Caffeine

Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

  • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
  • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
  • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

The result: mental stress will be gone!

So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
