What can you learn positively when you are surrounded with negativity in your life?

When negative situations you may experience come your way, even when you know you do not deserve it, it can teach you to change your thinking. We can learn from negative situations while trying to turn them into positive ones if we look at the bigger picture. We can learn through time to try and be the bigger person if we do not dwell on the situation.

stay positive

If you know what the situation is, you can learn from it with communication tactics the best way you can. As soon as the situation comes up, try and take another approach by

  • Partly agreeing with the person but turn it around by adding input you want to try to change
  • Without a direct answer, ask them a question with a question to change the subject around. At times, the subject can improve.
  • Unless the situation is nothing too important, agree fully with them in a calm way (although you generally do not mean it), then help make the subject better by explaining what you believe is better to help the situation
  • Show the person key tips to help the situation improve
  • If all else fails, “walk away”

Many of these situations are not easy to do but most negativities can always be made better through time and patience if we do not give in to the experience and show others you want positive change. Never look back and focus on the past. The present is here. The future can be changed better.

Keeping Yourself Motivated

At times, we need to find new ways to keep ourselves motivated but how many of us want change to our regular routines? Day after day, we are used to doing our daily activities, but it comes to a point where a change to them can help improve our motivation that can help change our habits.

Motivation

  1. When we exercise, why not do a different kind of exercise routine that you may have never tried before while working out.
  2. Some of us just love seeing imagery on our smartphones or on their PC. Even if you are not too addicted to your smartphone, set your mind on something you may have never seen before in person instead of fantasizing it on your device.
  3. When we read our kindle or regular books, instead of always reading in the same location you may be used to, try another location which may have a lot more variety to read which is around you. A change in scenery can always keep your mind fresh.
  4. You may not be a big shopper, but instead of going to local stores, even without the intension of buying something, look around at your local mall just to see the sites they may have. You never know what new things are out that you never fully researched face-to-face before.
  5. If you can travel at some point during the year, take the time to explore new places you never have been or research areas you probably never thought about seeing. Seeing and learning something new about what you would like to be for a vacation is always educational.

Motivation with change is always a good thing, if we keep benefiting from them, time and time again helping our minds stay healthy.
