Today’s Wellness Wednesday is all about positivity! Are you someone that is always seeing the glass half empty rather than half full? During challenging times, it is so tough to change our outlook. If we can master ways to see that glass half full, then we are well on our way to living a better and more positive life. Whether you are looking for ways to change your outlook or just simply keep yourself on a positive mindset track, our 4 tips and resources will help you get where you want to go. 

#1 It’s all about outlook.

The way that we look at the world is a direct result of how we feel. If we are constantly feeling down and negative, we will attract the same into our lives. Challenge yourself to break down those barriers of negativity and start to look at things differently. Use the glass half empty or half full example and apply that to your everyday life! 

#2 Stay grateful and humble.

When we move from a state of gratefulness, it is scientifically proven that we are happier. If you don’t want to believe us, believe Harvard Medical School. 

In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.

#3 Be kind to your progress.

Comparison is the thief of joy.

Theodore Roosevelt 

We constantly are comparing ourselves to others. “Keeping up with the Joneses” is more real than ever in the age of social media. If we consistently are basing our happiness on where we fall in comparison to others, we will never feel truly whole and happy. Choose kindness today. 

#4 Alter that 9%
