A Dose of Positive Attitude Can Be Infectious And Good For You!

Have you ever sat next to someone who is radiant, smiley and has a positive outlook on life?  Last week, I was at an event and met Belinda (not her real name). Belinda was emitting positive energy through her genuine laughter, charming presence, and optimistic outlook on life despite recently losing her job. Belinda made me pause and reflect on the importance of having people in your life that have a positive attitude and how it affects mental wellbeing. 

 

What is positive attitude?  According to UMM, a positive attitude is when the individual is able look at their life and feel a range of emotions (such as anger, sadness, frustration and happiness) and be able to focus on the positive aspects of their life.

How can I get some positive attitude?  Being positive is a way of being and radiates in your mind, body and soul.  For many people being positive does not come naturally.  Working with a counselor, friend and partner will help you to better understand your approach to life and provide support. Next time when you are feeling pessimistic or stuck about a person or situation, ask yourself the following questions, “Why am I feeling this way?” “Can I turn this situation around?” “Is this person/situation really important?”  “Where can I go for comfort and support?”

At times, it can be difficult to feel positive.  Surrounding ourselves around positive people is another great way to help us feel good, recharge, look at the situation from a different perspective, and learn ways to feel positive. Exercise and a balanced diet will help to replenish the body and help to improve mood and outlook on life.

UMM’s message is very simple, if possible find a dose of positive attitude!  Particularly when you are feeling disheartened, alone, or stuck in your head with a problem or situation.

 

We asked UMM followers, "where do you get your dose of positive attitude?"

 “My husband, he keeps things real.  He listens and makes me laugh.”  Anna, Washington DC.

“I meditate, it helps me to stay happy and focused.”  Neena, California.

“My girlfriends. I really enjoy a girl’s night out or chatting.  The girls cheer me up and keep me feeling good.”  Sadie, Oregon.
