Just one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

Just one small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.
-Dalai Lama

Your thoughts are powerful. The ability of your brain to hold 70,000 thoughts in mind at once is an amazing feature, but it can also work against you if you allow negative or unproductive thoughts to enter your conscious stream of thought. Sometimes these thoughts build up and cause stress, anxiety and other mental unease.

The good news is you can actively choose mindful thoughts to help prevent your mind from going down a negative path. You can change your whole day by choosing just one positive thought every morning. Here are some ideas on how to do that:

1.Smile and be grateful

Smile and be grateful for all the things in your life that you love. Even if your job stresses you out, be grateful for the people in your life. Think about your favorite color, food, time of day. Be grateful for all of these things. Smile. If you do this, I promise that your life will start to look a lot better.

2. Be mindful of what you’re thinking

Be mindful of what you’re thinking and write it down. Journaling is a selfless act that allows you to get your thoughts on paper without judgment or criticism. It allows you to go back and see what was on your mind months or even years after you wrote it down.

3. Do something nice everyday

Do something nice for someone else every day, no matter how small that something may be. It could be telling a friend you appreciate them, or helping someone up off the floor when they fall down. In this world where there’s so much hate, is it possible that doing something nice for someone else will affect them in a positive way, and maybe just maybe they will go out of their way to.

4. Let go of your past mistakes

Do you often think about your past mistakes? Keep in mind that the present is leading up to the future, which will be based on your current thoughts and actions. Let go of your past mistakes and focus on building a better today.

5. Love yourself

Love yourself first and foremost . Without self-love, you cannot love anyone else or expect to be treated well by them. Be your own best friend!

6. Focus on your goals

Focus on your goals every day and imagine what the future holds for you if your goals are met. Keep seeing yourself achieving those goals in your mind’s eye. This will help you to stay motivated.

7. You are Great

Think about all of your talents and skills, big or small, and be grateful for them. Chances are someone else could benefit from your unique gifts.

8. Not focus on the negative aspects.

When you have a bad day, try not to focus on the negative aspects. Instead, think about what went right and why it was a good day. You can learn and grow from both the negative and positive aspects of your life.

9. Make time for yourself

Make time for yourself every day, no matter how short it is. Give yourself some quiet time to do the things you enjoy. It can be anything from a 10 minute time out to a long bubble bath, but every day make sure you do something for yourself and your wellbeing.

10. Don’t worry about what other people think

Don’t worry about what other people think . Focus on yourself and your best interests instead of wasting your time trying to figure out the intentions of people who may try to discourage you from following your desires.

11. Focus on the positive

Focus on the positive in your life, no matter how small it may seem. Once you do this enough times, you will begin to see more of the positive in your life and become happier because of it.

12. Live in the moment.

Life can be easy if we just focus on the present. Every new morning is an opportunity for a fresh new start. When you start to realize how much time we spend worrying about the past and the future, you will begin to appreciate every moment.

13. Be patient with yourself

Be patient with yourself, not every day is going to go perfectly, but that’s okay! Take it one step at a time and focus on your progress.

14. Always follow your heart

Always follow your heart no matter what people may think or say about you. If you know it’s the right thing to do, then go for it! Remember that life is short and time is precious, so don’t spend it being unhappy by doing.

15. Take risks and make changes

Take risks and make changes in your life . Don’t stay in the same place where you are unhappy because you never know who could be living in the same town in a better position.

16. Be confident and speak up!

Be confident and speak up ! If you don’t say what’s on your mind now, it may always stay there because the only person who can make a difference is YOU! Your opinions matter, so express them boldly. Don’t be discouraged by what other people say, stand up for yourself and your dreams!

16. Don’t follow the crowd

Don’t follow the crowd . Just because everyone thinks something is true, it doesn’t make it so! If you feel in your heart that something is right and good, then go for it. Always do what you think is best and don’t let other people pressure you into anything that may be harmful or dangerous.

17. Don’t take yourself too seriously! 

Don’t take yourself too seriously; you’ll never get through life that way! Don’t let people tell you what to do and how to act. Always follow your heart and be true to yourself.

18. Give people a chance

Give people more than one chance . You never know what someone is going to say or do until you hear them out! Be open minded and if something happens, make sure that it is not your fault. Perhaps the person did not mean any harm and will apologize for their behavior later on.

19. Remember, everyone makes mistakes sometimes

Everyone makes mistakes; don’t beat yourself up over them . Learn from your past and keep looking forward. Remember that no one is perfect and try not to be so hard on yourself.

20. Stop competing with other people

Don’t compete with everyone all the time . You will only end up feeling stressed out and exhausted. Comparing yourself to others is a bad thing because you can never reach their standards-and that’s okay! Everyone has different strengths and abilities, so focus on yours.
