Recently experienced a breakup? Did you close out last month without hitting your numbers? Does it always seem like life can’t get any worse? I have a message for you: it gets better.
Life is all about peaks and valleys. Sometimes you’re high, sometimes you’re low. You see, the universe has a funny way of reminding you you’re alive. It’ll shake your foundation like an earthquake, making you feel like you can’t stand up on your feet anymore, like your world has crumbled so you feel broken and unbalanced like the pavement under you. But you mustn’t let it get the best of you because life throws curveballs at you for purposes far beyond your understanding (right now).
We tend to underestimate how much maintaining balance contributes to living life successfully, happily and productively. So when we’re hit with failure or rejection, we become overwhelmed.
March is National Optimism Month. March not only means the start of spring – which by nature’s standards means rebirth and renewal – March is also a great month to take all the negative thoughts pestering you and stuff 'em in a sack! It means it’s time to put a smile on your face and start thinking positively.
Below, I’ve outlined some mindful practices you can use to work on becoming a happier, more positive person.
