Over the last few years I have been trying to live my life with a more positive outlook. Small changes are made daily to focus on the positive. Recently I have been on a huge roller coaster of emotions with my Mother moving into assisted living and this has really taken a huge toll on me both physically and emotionally. Although it has been difficult I have been trying to focus on the more positive aspects as the move is safer and more convenient for my mother.

A change no matter the significance can help motivate for a more productive day, week, month or year. Thinking and being more positive can alter everyday life for the better, helping you to strive for a better and happier outcome. 
1. Change your responses
We all have our own typical responses when it comes to answering general questions. Like if someone asks how are you we tend to say Well thank you for asking - where we should be honest and let them know our honest answer. Of course this is for our nearest and dearest not over the phone or for a random who asks. 
2. Travel differently
Why not change or alter the way you travel to work or go for your daily walk or bike ride. You may discover something new which can open up a whole new world and your brain is learning something new as you travel a new path. 
3. Toss or replace something you complain about

If you have something that distracts you or upsets you when you walk into a room - remove it. A piece of clothing that you scrunch your nose at when you look in your closet remove it and give it to the poor. Replace it with something new that you love. 

4. Focus on one thing at a time

If you a notorious multitasker, like me and find it a little hard to complete all on your to do list because you flitter between emails, facebook, instagram etc. Try and discourage the distraction and focus entirely on the one task at hand. Schedule your time accordingly rewarding yourself a few minutes to flitter between your schedule.

5. Try and go to bed earlier than normal

I always try and be in bed no later than 10:30 as I am an early riser. I tend to get enough sleep most nights. Even if you can not fall asleep instantly, get into bed an hour earlier and read a book or journal about the day. Or just rest thinking about the day and sure enough you will sleep and feel rested and ready for the day ahead.

How do you choose to live with a more positive outlook?
