5 Easy Things Anybody Can Do To Live A Positive and Relaxed Life In 2024

Friday, December 29, 2023

In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it's easy to get caught up in the chaos and lose sight of the simple yet profound principles that can transform our existence. Living each day with positivity and relaxation isn't just a goal; it's a lifestyle that requires conscious choices and intentional actions. Let's explore some key practices that can guide you towards a more fulfilling and harmonious life.

1. Surround Yourself with Positive Influences

"Show me your friends, and I will show you your future."

They say that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. If you want to cultivate positivity in your life, surround yourself with individuals who radiate positivity. Seek out those who inspire, uplift, and encourage you to be your best self. Positive influences can come in various forms - friends, mentors, colleagues, or even the content you consume. Choose wisely, and let the positivity around you shape your outlook on life.
Many people underestimate the power of association. Many times we can be someone and something we do not desire. But our brains adapt to what is now labeled as comfortable and familiar - our present environment. It's what we know. You can be the match that doesn't ignite and stops the ongoing cycle of bad habits and routines. Know what you want and who you want to be. Become close with people who demonstrate exactly that.

2. Change Your Internal Landscape

Positivity starts from within. Before aiming to live a positive life, become a positive person. Cultivate a mindset that seeks the good in every situation. Train your mind to focus on solutions rather than problems. Be aware of your thoughts, and consciously replace negative self-talk with affirmations that reinforce your worth and capabilities. By changing your internal landscape, you set the foundation for a more positive and resilient external reality.
What stops many people from being positive is the fact that they are naturally negative attempting to think positively. It doesn't work that way. It is like putting new wine in an old wine bottle. To really think positive, feel positive, and act positive, you must first become positive. Life flows in the manner your internal world is created. What is impressed within is express without. Begin inside your shell rather than outside.

3. Let the Phone Ring - Embrace Relaxation

In a world driven by instant communication, the constant buzzing of our phones can trigger stress and anxiety. Embrace relaxation by letting the phone ring. This metaphorical act symbolizes letting go of the automatic response to every problem or challenge. Instead of reacting impulsively, take a moment to breathe and evaluate. Give yourself the space to respond with a calm and collected mindset. This simple practice can bring a sense of tranquility to your daily interactions.
Reactions are automatic as it is our habitual behavior. Sometimes we all say things and do things we know was not right and think with regret after they have been expressed. Instead, when a problem or situation occurs, 'let the phone ring' and count to 10 seconds to let your automatic emotions pass and then continue on your day without negative impulses to react back. You can't fight fire with fire. Instead, 'let the phone ring' and worry about yourself. When we react inappropriately, we actually are hurting more of ourselves than the other person. We now entertain negative thoughts, feel like sh*t, and develop a natural negative state where nobody wants to be around us. Change your life by letting go.

4. Be Present: Let Go of Past and Future Worries

Living in the present moment is a powerful practice that can significantly enhance your well-being. While it's essential to draw lessons from the past and plan for the future, dwelling on past mistakes or worrying excessively about the future can hinder your present happiness. Let go of what no longer serves you. Reflect on your past wins to build confidence, but when the creative state is over, shift your focus to the now. Embrace the beauty of the present moment, savoring the experiences and opportunities it brings.

It is okay to venture into the past, but only the past wins. When you go deep into your past losses, you are re-shaping your internal structure to repeat those memories because you start to feel the sensation and emotions of when that situation happened. You re-live it and re-imagine it. It is also perfectly fine to visualize your future and prepare plans of action. But there are times when we are no longer in a creative state and we need to zone back in. Into the present world. As of right now. Let go of the past and future and remain in the now, reshaping your reality.

5. Prioritize Self-Care Rituals

Self-care is a cornerstone of a positive and relaxed life. Engage in activities that nourish your mind, body, and soul. Whether it's practicing yoga, indulging in a spa day, immersing yourself in a good book, going for a run, or maintaining a healthy diet, prioritize activities that bring you joy and rejuvenation. Positive self-talk is another crucial aspect of self-care. Remind yourself every day that you love who you are and fully accept yourself. This affirmation sets the tone for a day filled with self-love and positivity.

Utilize the voice in your head. Whether we like to admit it or not, we all talk to ourselves. But instead of causing your internal landscape to be filled with worry, doubt, and fear, give yourself confidence boosts and claim who you are. Love you because you made you. Accept you because you are you. You can change any part of you but as of the present moment, love and respect you.

In conclusion, living each day with positivity and relaxation is a conscious choice that requires ongoing effort and commitment. Surround yourself with positivity, cultivate an internal landscape of optimism, embrace relaxation by letting go of immediate responses, stay present in the moment, and prioritize self-care. By incorporating these practices into your daily life, you create a foundation for a more fulfilling, joyful, and balanced existence. Remember, each day is an opportunity to shape the life you want to live - make it a positive and relaxing one!
