5 Habits of Happy and Positive People

Is it possible to live a happy, positive life amid the pandemic?

Absolutely!

You can be a more positive person starting today! But what makes people happy and positive? What makes them see the glass as half full and not half empty?

It’s simple – positive people make it a habit to be positive. They act, think, and see the world differently. Here are 5 habits of positive people you can try out for a happier, more positive you:

5 Habits of Happy and Positive People

1. Positive people accept their past, live in the present, and stay optimistic about the future

Some people live in this mindset: “I am poor, I had a painful past, I was given a hard life.”

Positive people think otherwise. They have the courage to accept that everything that happens is for their growth – no matter how bad it may have been.

Choose to believe that life’s challenges make you stronger, wiser, more loving, and more faithful. Use your gifts, strengths, and even your struggles to create something of value to your life and to the world.

Instead of harboring resentment, focus on the things you have and can do in the present moment. Have faith that in the future, everything will work out for your good.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NKJV)

2. Positive people practice self-love

Do you love yourself?

Positive people would answer a resounding yes to that question. They know that self-compassion lets them experience more happiness, optimism, and motivation in life – affirming what Social and Personality Psychology Compass found in their research.

So, take care of your well-being so you can take good care of others, too. Likewise, embrace your identity which is wonderfully made in the image of God.

Avoid comparing yourself with others. Whenever you catch yourself thinking this way, be careful that you don’t fall into self-pity. Remind yourself of your worth and potential. Trust the process. Run your own race!

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Psalm 139:14,17 ESV)

5 Habits of Happy and Positive People

3. Positive people surround themselves with positive people

What kind of people do you surround yourself with? Do they fill you up, or drain your energy? Do they lift you up, or bring you down? Are they supportive, or critical?

For positive people, friendships have a huge effect on positivity and happiness. In fact, a study called Dynamic Spread of Happiness in a Large Social Network suggests that those who associate themselves with happy people have a happier demeanor – and that happiness spreads through their social network!

So, surround yourself with friends who are happy, wise, and supportive. Build lasting relationships with individuals who can inspire you and help you grow in faith.

“The righteous should choose his friends carefully, For the way of the wicked leads them astray.” (Proverbs 12:26 NKJV)

4. Positive people find joy in the little things

Positive people know that our days are numbered, so they make the most out of it by finding joy even in small things.

Avoid overthinking and overanalyzing because not all things are worth worrying about. Don’t take yourself too seriously –  have fun!

Finding joy and humor in little things in life is an attitude that can be cultivated each day. Enjoy your time here, so go ahead and dance, sing, crack jokes, and smile a lot!

“This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24 ESV)

5. Positive people cultivate an attitude of gratitude

What are you grateful for today?

For positive people, gratitude helps them refocus on what they have instead of what they lack. They believe that what they focus on grows, so as they focus on gratitude, it naturally brings positivity and abundance into their life.

To feel better about your life, cultivate gratitude on a daily basis.

Instead of complaining or sulking, step back and take time to pray and thank God for the life He has given you. Praise Him for the tiniest things to the grandest of blessings. Thank Him for His promises that are yet to be fulfilled.

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18 ESV)

3 Practical Ways to Find Perfect Peace Amid the Pandemic

3 Practical Ways to Find Perfect Peace Amid the Pandemic

The pandemic has taken away many things for many of us.

Maybe you have lost your dream job or the business that you have worked so hard to build. Or perhaps, you have lost a loved one to COVID-19.

But apart from the things and people you have lost, the pandemic keeps on shaking up the peace in your life on a regular basis. Do you feel troubled and worried?

Regain your peace today!

Here are three practical ways that can help you find perfect peace amid the pandemic:

3 Practical Ways to Find Perfect Peace Amid the Pandemic

1. Spend time with God in prayer

For more than a year, the pandemic has kept us from socializing with the people outside of our homes, including our best friends.

You might be missing having someone genuinely listening to you while you are going through tough times. You wish they were beside you right now when life seems so overwhelming.

The good news is, you do have someone who wants to listen to you and free you from your worries and pain: God! You are never alone. God is just waiting for you to go to Him.

When you are filled with anxious thoughts, spend time surrendering your worries to God in prayer.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7 NIV)

Set a time of the day to intentionally seek God in prayer. Find comfort knowing that God can hear all your requests amid your distress.

 2. Read God’s Word

Have you ever found yourself aimlessly scrolling through your social media feeds every day?

As you browse through discouraging news, the latest trends, and so many more superficial posts, do you find yourself feeling empty and disheartened?

When events of this world shake your peace, turn to the unshakeable foundation of your peace – the Bible.

Instead of scrolling through your social media accounts, read chapters in the Bible filled with hope and promises of God.

Let the Word of God fill your thoughts and direct your life.

“Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” (Psalm 109:105 NLT)

Take heart and feel the peace that comes with the promises of God in the Bible and it will make your life filled with hope every day.

3. Focus on God

As you find hope in prayer and direction through the Word of God, sustain your peace by focusing on God every day.

When worries start to kick in, let prayer and God’s Word lead you to an unshakeable peace brought about by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross.

“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2 NIV)

One of the ways you can focus yourself on God is by listening to uplifting and feel-good music!
