Admit You Are Negative
The first step to changing your life is to admit that you are negative or that you have negative thoughts. Believing you “can’t” do something; contributes to a non-healthy lifestyle.
Be Determined to be Positive
Once you’ve admitted you are negative, or at least have some negative tendencies, you can resolve to changing the way you think. Become conscious of your daily thoughts and when a negative thought enters your mind, quickly turn it around. Eliminate words like “can’t” from your vocabulary and replace them with “can
Replace Cola with Water
The healthiest beverage you can drink is water. And by replacing chemical and sugar-filled drinks with water, you will make massive improvements to your health. First of all, you are eliminating the sugar and caffeine that are so addicting, yet bad for overall health. Second, you are increasing your water intake. Chemical-free natural water will help improve your energy, eliminate toxins from your body, make your skin more healthy looking, and improve your mental performance.
Learn to Meditate
Meditating allows you to clear your mind, lower stress, become more focused, and stay positive. It’s a very positive and powerful medium. By taking just 15 minutes a day to meditate, you’ll find yourself handling time and stress much better.
When you allow yourself to become immersed in positive thinking, you will start to see it affect other aspects of your life. For example, instead of feeling “inconvenienced” by merging traffic, you’ll allow someone to easily merge in front of you and feel great about it. They might even wave or mouth “thank you”.(then again, they may not-your not doing it for the wave-you’re not really doing it for them-your doing this for you!) At a grocery store when you have a cart full of groceries and the person behind you has only one or two items you may find yourself saying, “please go ahead of me since you only have a few items” and that person’s gratitude will make your day. (or maybe they won’t be or seem grateful-so what?-again-it’s not about them.)You’ll find yourself actively thinking about others and your contribution to their positive experiences will have a huge affect on your eternal happiness. I have actually done this-it does seem to work.
Three guys go in for a job interview, all at the same office. The first one goes in for his interview and the interviewer says, “What’s the first thing you see when you look at me?” The guy says, “That’s not too hard, you’ve got no ears.” The interviewer says, “That’s it, get out, you’ll never be seen around here again.” The second man takes his turn and is asked the same question. The applicant replies, “Uh, you’ve got no ears.” The interviewer throws the guy out, cursing and yelling that he’ll never get a job with his company. As he is leaving, the second guy warns the third guy, “Listen man, whatever you do, don’t say he hasn’t got any ears. He’s so touchy with the ear thing.” “Okay,” said man #3 on his way into the office. Once inside he is told, “Name the first thing you notice when you look at me.” The guy answers, “That’s easy, you wear contacts.” The interviewer was flabbergasted, “How on earth did you know that, son?” “What? Are you stupid? You can’t wear glasses, you’ve got no ears!”
