Why positivity is so important right now
I don’t know about you, but I literally want to throw my phone out the window and go off the grid forever at the moment. I am shocked — not at any coronavirus-related news — but at how some people are handling it. Particularly, their negative attitudes towards the situation. A stampede of negative posts on social media have come spiralling down every day since the announcement of the virus last year. Quite frankly, it is becoming tiring to keep up.
As a result, I thought a great topic to cover would be positivity. I think a positive attitude during these times is more important than ever. Let’s cover why positivity is so important.
Contrary to popular belief, positive thinking isn’t just a soft and feel-good term. Yes, it’s great to “be happy,” but moments of happiness are also critical for opening your mind to explore and build the skills that come as a result.
Research is beginning to reveal that positive thinking is about much more than just being happy or displaying an upbeat attitude. Good thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help you build skills that last much longer than a smile!
The impact of positive thinking on your work, health, and life is being studied by people who are much smarter than me! For example, when you are experiencing positive emotions like joy, contentment, and love, you will see more possibilities in your life. That’s why it’s good to be happy and open-minded, regardless of the current situation we are in.
Positivity attracts other positive people and situations. Therefore, you will be ready when new situations present themselves. If you are letting yourself dwell in the negative, you might reject something that could change your life for the better. Please remain positive, you never know what is around the corner!
Positive thinking can also help with stress management and even improve your overall health. This is once again supported by science which shows that personality traits such as optimism and pessimism can affect many areas of your health and well-being. The positive thinking that usually comes with optimism is a key part of effective stress management. More positivity equals less stress, it’s that simple.
Ultimately what I’m trying to say is, we can’t control what is currently going on around us. I think we must remain positive as better times are coming. The science clearly shows that positivity extends to better health and a better outlook on life, that’s why I’m remaining positive for the future of Clover and the hospitality industry overall!
Keep positive folks!
