The 9 Best Habits Of Positive People Aug 24, 2016 by Sarah (Day Styles)
We all have those people in our lives, the people that are ALWAYS happy and positive no matter what life brings their way. While it’s tempting to view them with a certain amount of irritation, there are certain habits of happy people that help them maintain their positivity - habits that we can try for ourselves! Ultimately, of course, it boils down to the fact that nothing can make you happy on its own - happiness is a conscious decision. Here are some ways that you can switch up your mood and generate positive energy!
1. Be Kind Always
When you are kind to other people, you can feel happier about yourself as well. You’ve heard the golden rule a million times, “treat others the way that you would want to be treated.” You can always start with basic manners, like saying “please” and “thank you,” and you’ll be amazed at how far it can take you. Being kind doesn’t mean that you have to be a pushover, either! Common courtesy can help you stand proud and confident, knowing that you did the right thing.
2. Have Self-Respect
Being kind and confident works both ways! Don’t just show respect for others, show some respect for yourself. In fact, the more confident you feel, the more others will treat you with respect. While overcoming our own doubts and fears can be a daunting task, you can ALWAYS do two things: give yourself the slack you need to energize and feel good about yourself, and make sure that other people know that you respect yourself (even if you don’t always feel the same!) Dress the part and take pride in how you look, talk, and work. This can be the first thing people notice about you, and when other people think you respect yourself and give you the consideration you deserve, you might just feel better!
3. Show Your Loved Ones How Special They Are
Sharing positive experiences and making great memories with the people you love will always make you and your life so much happier. Celebrate the accomplishments of those around you bringing positivity into your life and the lives of others. It doesn’t have to be something big, either, sometimes we all need someone telling us how our daily toils are worth love and support. Don’t be afraid to tell your friends and family that you need the same, either, just make sure that it’s a two-way street.
