After a rough couple of years, it's not unusual to feel a little down in the dumps about the world around us. However, taking steps to harness the power of positivity can really help you to focus on the bigger picture without worrying so much about the small stuff. So, instead of always assuming the worst, hope for the best! Simple as that.
But hang on a minute, we hear what you're saying: "that's easier said than done", and you're right - however, with a bit of practice and dedication, you'll find that the positives in life will start to become more noticeable and can truly help your mental wellbeing in the long run. In this guide, we've put together some simple ways you can add more positivity to your life.
Practice Gratitude and Mindfulness
"It's hard to be negative when there are so many things in life to be grateful for", this is the underlining concept around practising gratitude. So, even amidst the hard times, there's always so much we can still be thankful for. No matter how small.
As humans, we tend to dwell on the negative elements that impact our lives, which is why it's so important to celebrate all the little triumphs you make and keep an open mind about the beauty that the world has to offer. One way you can do this is by bringing your attention to the present moment without analysing or evaluating the situation you're in and just focusing on the sounds you hear and the sensations in your body.
Chakra Stones Remove Negative Energies
The seven chakras are the main energy centres of our bodies. Each chakra radiates specific energy that positively impacts the spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physical aspects of our being. When a chakra is blocked, it can impact our emotions, including how positive we are.
These powerful stones help cleanse and clear your chakras, and carrying a stone helps repel negative energies. As positivity and optimism are closely linked to the Solar Plexus Chakra, you should look for Citrine, Sunstone, Yellow Calcite and Carnelian to help unblock your chakra.
If you'd prefer not to carry around a gemstone in your pocket, why not explore the option of Chakra jewellery. Here at FIYAH, our Solar Plexus Chakra range includes a beautiful ring, necklace and bracelet to match. They're made from sterling silver and finished with silver plating to add that extra sparkle centred around the beautiful Citrine gemstone.
The Law of Attraction
Your mindset is what matters. The law of attraction is a new spiritual movement and philosophy centred on the belief that positive or negative thoughts can transpire into reality. It's thought that people's thoughts are made from pure energy, which influences all outcomes in life like our finances, relationships, and health.
So, thinking positively and putting out good vibrations into the world is said to attract like-minded energy back to you. Put simply, like attracts like. This practice is simple to do, and there are countless stories of people explaining how they've manifested victories in their life this way.
Future You Will Thank You 💖
Adopting a positive mindset helps you see more of the good in the world and not get caught up with the little things that don't really matter. It allows you to feel more zen and at peace with the world, which is something we can all do with, especially after the hectic last couple of years.
Plus, practice makes permanent, and by actively choosing to focus on the positives, you'll start to inject positivity into your life without even thinking about why and how.
