Some Ideas for a Happier, More Positive Life!


One of the main things we'd all like to have is a happier, more positive life, and that is something that we all can achieve with the right frame of mind.

I've found that one of the most important ways that we can be happier is to feel well physically, mentally, and emotionally. To do that, we need to have an evaluation of our health, and if we're not quite up to par, we need to get that corrected either through the help of a traditional doctor and/or by an alternative practitioner. (At the same time, being more positive tends to make us feel better!)

Getting adequate sleep and rest is also important for having a happier, more positive life.

"Put your positive pants on."

I recently learned a good trick to get rid of negative thoughts, and that was to write down any negative thought that comes to mind, and then throw away the paper with the negative thought written on it. It really worked for me. Amazing!

"Replace every negative thought with a positive one."

I have never liked washing dishes. It's always just been a monotonous chore for me, until I started dancing! Now, the chore has become something I actually look forward to! I put on some jivey music and dance while doing the dishes. Not only do I have clean dishes, but I also get in my daily exercise, and I feel uplifted with the upbeat tunes I play!

Step a little bit out of out of your comfort zone. Do something you've never done before. For example, I recently got brave and fixed a dish using fresh asparagus since Greg said that he'd like to try fresh asparagus sometime. I don't pretend to be a gourmet cook, but occasionally, I do like to try something different.

Here it is-"Asparagus with Lemon Butter Crumbs," along with salmon and brown rice farina to complete the meal. (And, Greg loved it!)

It wasn't that difficult. I just had to have a positive, I-can-do-this attitude!

Doing nice things for other people, like giving them special little gifts can make you as well as the recipients feel happier and more positive.

Happy Easter!
