We all want to become more positive people. Being more positive equals feeling happier, and who doesn’t want to be a happier person? Happiness is one thing you cannot buy with money but can be acquired easily by shifting your mindset and focus, thereby literally changing your life.
Naturally, people tend to focus on what they are lacking and what they wished they would have in their life. By shifting your focus on what you actually do have, you will come to realize that you are one of the luckiest people in the world.
Sounds amazing, right? Well, it is really not that difficult to change your outlook and take notice of all the good that you have in your life. At first, it may take some extra effort, but once you make it a routine it will become second nature to you.
how do you accomplish this?
a Gratitude Journal
by creating a gratitude journal, recording 5 things that you
are grateful for each day. Don’t duplicate things, think of 5 new things that
you feel thankful for each and every day. It may sound like a lot, but once you
start noticing how much good you have your list will grow quickly. These things
don’t need to be major, they can be small things that you are grateful that you
have in our life. For example: 1) I have a house to live in (not everyone can
say that) 2) I had a good night sleep 3) I have clean scrubs to wear to work4) my boiler
is working so I was able to take a hot shower 5) I have an appetite to eat my
That was easy, 5 things that we often take for granted. Not everyone can say that they have these things; and if we did not have one of them we would feel like we are lacking, so appreciate that you have them!
Once you train your mind to look for the good in every situation, you will automatically be more tuned in to see the positive. When you pull in to a full parking lot and find a parking spot easily, you will feel grateful. When you get to your destination safely, you will feel grateful. You will learn not to take anything for granted, and feel extremely fortunate and lucky for all the good that you have. And you will feel happy. Happy that you have such a rich life full of goodness and blessings.
when you feel happy, you will become a more positive and
well liked person, a person that people will enjoy spending time with and
being in your company. We all know that no one wants to be around a negative
So, start your gratitude journal today, and start recognizing all the good that you have in your life, and you will start living a more positive, happier life!

Let’s be clear: stresses and anxiety are unavoidable and are an important part of anyone’s life. One cannot get rid of them entirely. Moreover, the necessity to overcome anxiety can become another stress, as you’re supposed to be good at dealing with it. But anxiety and stresses are not only about psychological health. They also affect your grades. Here are some easy rules you can follow to eliminate the influence of anxiety on your studying and ease the stress of college.
1. Eat well
This is the most obvious and the
most underestimated piece of advice. What you eat affects your grades on a direct basis. Compose at least
80% of your diet with minimally processed healthy food, and indulge yourself
with no more than 20% of junk food. Avoid relaxing with alcohol as well,
especially if you’re an addictive type of person.
2. Get enough sleep
You must have seen it out on your
own: bad sleep the night before leads to the lack of productivity the next day.
Coffee and energy drinks are lifesavers if you take them from time to time, but
if you can help it, it is better to opt for a good 8-hour night of sleep.
Studies show that socializing helps
eliminate the symptoms of depression and anxiety. It can be difficult for you
to make new friends if you have social anxiety or are an introverted type of
person. To make socializing easier, check out the fraternities on your campus
and try some sports. Scan the hobby groups in your college and involve yourself
in some of them. Get along with your roommate. Speak to people in classes. And
don’t forget about your family.
4. Don’t procrastinate
It is easier to overcome a bad grade
if you know you’ve done everything you could. In this case, the only things you
have to blame are the circumstances and your teacher, who does not like you too
much. If you were deliberately postponing your homework and haven’t done
everything you could to make it better, the only person to blame is you.
Self-blame is one of the reasons for having major depressive disorder some studies say.
5. Ask for help
Find some legitimate research paper writing service and use it when you need it.
Stress from getting a bad grade or any assignment you’re unable to cope with on
time is one of the most common happenings among college students. Remember that
there is always a way out and there are always people who are willing to help.
Just ask for it.
6. Write down your expenditures
Money can be another stressful factor for freshmen. If you’re not willing to take a part-time job yet, opt for controlling your spending. We assure you that after several weeks of writing your expenditures down or using budget planning and tracking mobile apps, you will be shocked by how much money you pay for nonsense.
7. Help others
Doing good makes you feel good, and
some even say that the
secret to happiness is helping others. There is always a chance to help
those in need — if not with your money then with your time and devotion.
Maybe there are some subjects you can assist your classmates with. Speak to
students for whom English is not a native language. You will both improve their
English and you will find out a lot about foreign cultures.
8. Take time out for yourself
It might seem that every minute of
life in college is written down, but there is always a couple of hours a day
you can devote to yourself—just search better. A day in a spa
would be perfect, but a simple walk in a park also will do. Read or dream
instead of scrolling through your Instagram timeline when you’re already in
bed. Christmas holidays with your family and summers vacation in Europe also
9. Think about the future
It is not as easy as the rest of the
list, but someone has to do it and it better to be you. We encourage you not to
overthink stuff, like “Did I choose the best college?” or “What should I do if
I fail my exams?” but analyze what you want and how you can get there. Create a
pool of if-then plans in your mind and it will be easier for you to face the
Sorry to say that again, but
one’s college years are really one of the brightest periods of your life. Enjoy
it and don’t let anxiety and stresses take away all the opportunities life
gives you now.
No matter at what moment we are in life, whether we are deepening our studies or leaving the children at school, we can all agree that finding time to take care of ourselves is of vital importance. Finding time for ourselves is the beginning of self-reflection and the reflection is the foundation of how we understand the meaning of our lives. By reflecting on everything we will be trained to be able to see problems from various perspectives.
However, although we all know it, most women devote time on a regular basis to personal care and attention. Instead, we put ourselves in the background and take care of the needs of everyone else first. And although it can be heroic at times, it is also harmful; it is harmful for health to overlook the needs of our body.
As in this fast-paced culture, how can we improve in our personal, physical, mental and spiritual care? We often hear advice like ‘eat real food’, ‘exercise regularly’ and ‘get enough sleep’, but I think the issue goes further. Here you will find four tips, adapted from my own experience , that focus more on the spiritual aspects of treating your whole being, both physical and spiritual, with kindness. To get more info you can visit Bestpsychics.club.
Have mercy on yourself.
Sometimes it may be easier to have compassion for others than for yourself. It is possible that you are giving other people second, third or even infinite opportunities, but to your own actions and thoughts, you give them the very little margin of error. When you make mistakes, do you reproduce them again and again in your head and find new details each time you see that you have made a mistake? It’s a common feeling, but it’s not healthy. Errors are natural as long as you don’t do it intentionally. What’s more important is to make peace with these mistakes while looking for ways not to repeat the same mistakes.
The first step in spiritual care is to realize that we all make mistakes and nothing happens because we are not perfect. If you are a believer, always bear in mind that God is bigger than our mistakes and problems. And the first step to accepting His forgiveness is to be merciful to ourselves and to recognize that we need help with our own care giving us permission to be human.
At the end of each day, remember the good things you have
Sometimes life is so busy that the only time left for one to think about it is at the end of the day, lying on the bed. It can be easy to fall into a habit of negativity, punishing yourself thoroughly for everything you’ve done wrong that day and thinking about what you could have done better.
Instead, try to think of the times you have been blessed throughout the day. They do not have to be extraordinary moments. They can be simple things, like an avenue with all the traffic lights in green way of the work, or that your husband makes the bed in the morning. Here is a simple way to start: share in your social media profile the little things for which you feel grateful every day.
When you are able to find joy even
in the smallest moments, you are learning to find kindness and gratitude in all
your days. And after all that practice seeing the good of creation, it may be
easier for you to learn to apply that lens of kindness and gratitude to
yourself. And when you feel better about yourself, you will be more willing to
do things that are good for your body, such as exercising and maintaining a
Be aware that you are unique
Believe in God? He thinks you’re smart. He knows
that you are unique and that there is no one else like you. He thought of you
from the beginning of time. You are never too much for Him and you are always
enough for Him. He created you and called you good. We have all passed by, and
He loves us. On the days that you focus on your care, do not forget to focus on
the person who cares most about you and loves you and knows you more. Every
human being is unique and has its own advantages and disadvantages. This is a
fact that we must accept and we should not view others as better as or worse
than ourselves. By seeing all humans as equals, we will not be easily
discouraged when we experience failure in life.
Taking a day off might be a need for you.
Mental prayer should not be seen as something exceptional, something that is done in a time taken from other activities but should become a habit, part of the normal rhythm of our lives so that its place is never questioned, not even a day. The time we spend away from the stress of daily life is not something that we should feel shame or guilt. In fact, that time on the sidelines is essential for our well-being and personal care. Mental prayer should become a daily event as vital to us as the basic rhythm of existence. It should be the breathing of our souls. Do not feel guilty for wanting to take a break and let your soul just breathe. There is time to work,and there is time to rest. Balance is a marker of whether our lives are normal or not. We are not slaves but free individuals and to note, no happiness without independence.

There may come an exciting time in your relationship where you and your significant other decide to move in together. It can be a stressful and financially taxing experience, but with the right tools and support, a move can be a beautiful transition into a new chapter with your partner. Below are a few steps you can take while preparing to move that will promote positive communication, and increase overall happiness for everyone involved.
A Beautiful Move With Your Significant Other
1. Communication is Key
It can be easy to get frustrated discussing the inner workings of a move, but being open and honest with your partner will cultivate the best results. When you disagree on a subject, use positive words like “I respect your opinion” and “let’s work on this together” instead of avoiding tough subjects. For example, when it comes time to decide which items you are keeping, you may come to a disagreement. If your partner really enjoys an item that you don’t see fitting for your new space, instead of discarding it, compromise on fixing it up to better suit the design style you’re going for! That way, you have an open channel of communication to discuss items for your new space and suggest ways to incorporate disagreeable pieces without disrespecting your partner’s interests.
2. Sit Down and Plan It Out
A move shouldn’t be rushed, and once you’ve made the decision to combine spaces you should take the time necessary to plan out the process in its entirety. You can use sites that offer a moving checklist to help you organize your thoughts, and cover some bases you may be forgetting. Schedule a few nights a week to go through each of your current homes, get your finances in order, and start packing your belongings. A common mistake is focusing too much on the granular details of moving, and missing big picture items. Be sure you’ve taken steps to pay for a moving truck, and turn on your water and power in your new home before arrival. This makes your home prepped and ready for your move-in day and eliminates any stress of your items not arriving on time.
3. Have Fun Shopping
One of the best parts about moving is being able to decorate and shop for items to match your style and interests as a couple. Whether it’s a trendy DIY project that you found on Pinterest or investing in a new, long-lasting and hard wearing furnishings for your living room space that you have had your eye on, you can choose every last detail to make this a space that reflects both you and your partner’s styles! If on a tight budget, reach out to friends, family, or neighbors and see if they have any pieces they are willing to part with. Or, if you’re interested in fix-er-up items, websites like Garage Sale Finder allow you to find a garage sale closest to you to find some unique items and antiques you’ve been looking for that you just can’t find in stores.
4. Take Time For Yourself
If living together is a new experience, giving yourselves plenty of space to understand the process and adjust can help to limit frustration and conflict. If you move too quickly or don’t take the time to enjoy the experience, you may forget valuable memories that come with sharing a space. It is important to have an outlet to clear your head when the tasks of moving become a little taxing. For example, try downloading a meditation app like Headspace for breathing techniques and positive thinking exercises to help you unwind after loading the moving truck.
Overall, moving should be a fun and positive experience for you and your partner. Take the proper steps toward success and you will have the home of your dreams in no time!
