7 Ways to Build a More Positive Mindset

1.       “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
–          Double check – are you treating others the way you would want to be treated?-          Sometimes our frustration with others is a lesson for ourselves to make sure we too are acting and giving in the ways we expect to receive from others

2.       Thought awareness
–          We are not our thoughts. Our thoughts are separate from us.
–  Begin to take note of the kind of thoughts you are having. Are they positive, supportive, uplifting? Or are they more critical, judgmental, belittling?
–          Choose to tune your mental ‘radio station’ to supportive thoughts and turn the station on unsupportive thoughts.

3.       Understanding Emotions
–          Emotions are energy. Everything is energy. Our thoughts are energy.
–          All emotions are welcome and beautiful
–          To move through an emotion, welcome it, feel it, breath through it, and release it
–          Talk to yourself like you would a child in times of high emotion – be gentle with yourself too
–          Get curious and be an observer of your emotion
–          The more we resist and label certain emotions as wrong or bad – the more tension we feel and the more the energy gets stuck in the body creating an anxious mind.

4.       Mental strength in communication
–          Instead of quick automated responses – build intention and mindfulness into your communication to be understood better
–          When speaking with others – ground yourself into your body by feeling your feet, having good posture, and staying connected to your breath.
–          Respond from a place of authenticity by asking yourself questions such as: “is this true for me?’ ‘is this how I want to show up?’ ‘is this in alignment with my values?’
–          Pause before you respond so when you speak you feel really good about what you’re saying.

5.       Switching the mindset back
–          Use a mantra when you notice your thoughts aren’t supportive
–          Mantras: I like what I see, I love what I’m doing. Today is a good day, I am enjoying today.
–          Make a list of all the things you love
–          Make a gratitude list

6.       Making changes
–          Find clarity on where things are off (when things are off it creates anxiety)
–          Decide what needs to be changed
–          Determine what can be done to make those changes

7.       Making decisions / choices
–          The more we feel good about the choices we make, the more confidence we have, and the more we feel good in our own skin – therefore feeling good about the life we are living.
–          Get clear on your values – make decisions based around those values
–          When we make decisions that aren’t in alignment with our values there’s a part of us on the inside that gets thrown off. This creates anxiety and overwhelm.
–          When we make decisions in alignment with our values – our mind naturally becomes more positive and supportive.
