What is positive thinking?
Positive thinking is rare in the current demographic of this globe. Be it individuals, groups or states the race has made everyone anything but positive. In this chaos and agonising aura everyone is looking for a support and a way out. When we put an end to the denial state of our mind we can see that surely there are way outs and you can always seek for help at any stage.
Psychologists state that when a newborn is fabricated to violence or even a mere harsh behaviour their body tends to transcend in a “fight” mode rather than to be in a “flight” mode, which eventually affects their immune system and also their brain development. In nutshell their potential of developing and nurturing is affected immensely. Same is with grown up individuals who do not pave their ways out of negativity. So, without the approach of positivity a person’s productivity and potential decreases to a negligible level. Therefore this quality of life must be preferred over anything.

Never invest your energies in battling with your nightmares alone and always. Confrontation and deductions can pave a way out for you always provided you accept that expressing yourself will not harm your social image. The fear of judgement holds us from doing this but beyond the fear lays the ocean of neutrality.
3. Practice Positive Thinking by Travelling more often
In the shadow of our daily grind we become somewhat we call a machine or a robot. There are months when we do not find time to look out of the window. To see the sun rise or a sunset working from dawn to dusk but actually missing the essence of it makes us a little materialistic. When we finally take some time out of this grind we are able to evaluate ourselves, to think what we have done so far and how productive was it. In the midst of all these necessary realizations you also sightly images that drag you to the reality of life. A breath of fresh air always brings about positivity in yourself. The exotic scenery hit your heart, connecting with new people and discovering places opens up your mind and soul. You strive to do something good and collectively the experience of travelling casts a positive spell on your personality.
Quoting ‘Shams Tabrizi’:
“Love is a travel. All travellers whether they want or not are changed. No one can travel into love and remain the same.”

It attracts positive thinking and behaviours. When you approach individuals and interact with positive attitude playing down your fears and negative aspects of that scenario you will not believe but you will be returned with the same which will eventually aid to your process of being positive.
5. Catch Up With Old Friends
Friends are the diamond jewels in your life with whenever you reconnect; they rejuvenate your inner self. You laugh uncontrollably, you pour out yourself, you share happiness and sorrow and on return you feel as if you had a nice break and you are all ready for the drill again.
