Exercises That Train Your Brain to Stay Positive
- Follow Your Passion
Doing what you truly LOVE is one of the greatest things you can do to stay positive. If your job or hobby doesn’t isn’t fulfilling and only makes you feel guilty, consider switching it up. Also, if you start to notice that you are distancing from where you want to be in life, make a change.
Write down a few things that you enjoy doing, followed by positive changes that you would want to see in the world. Then, compare this to your current lifestyle to see how they match. Ultimately, work towards achieving your goals and happiness.

In order to have a positive experience and feel positive, it is sometimes essential to reveal and release the past negative experiences that are trapped within your mind. Exercises like mirror work, NLP, affirmations, and tapping are good places to start with. The journey to discovering your ability to heal from a traumatic experience, a bad relationship or a childhood trauma often starts in your subconscious.
- Eat, Drink, and Sleep Well
It is a well-known fact that proper intake of food, drink, and sleep affects mental health. It has been scientifically shown that vitamin deficiencies contribute to declines in mental health that lead to depression, addictions, stress, and anxiety.
- Help Others
One of the best ways to stay positive is to help others stay positive. When the people around you are down, it is when they need a positive attitude the most. Don’t avoid negative energy fearing that it might spread to you, but jump in with your positive mindset and help them shine!
- Daily Gratitude
Put your journal or your phone with the gratitude app next to your bed. Every morning, write at least two or three things that you are grateful for. It doesn’t have to be something special; whatever is positive deserves gratitude.
