6 EASY TIPS FOR LIVING A POSITIVE LIFE



This week I have teamed up with new and up-coming artist Jonathan Abbott to create a series of images that encapsulate the meaning behind these 6 positive outlooks on life. Jonathan has created the images and captions and I have written my personal explanation of these captions underneath.

1. TAKE TIME OUT TO RELAX


This is such an essential rule to live by. For days/ times in your life when you're low and stressed, it's so important to take time to relax and enjoy the world around you. Whether that's a holiday, a day to yourself or just going for your favourite meal at a cafe. Just remember that self-love is the most important love and you need to care for yourself in order to live positively.

2. DONT BE CONTROLLED, BE IN CONTROL


Another really important tip to live positively is to remember that YOU are the one in control of your life. No-one is in charge of you, not your career nor any other person. It's you that determines your future. So remember to not let society/ the world control you, because ultimately YOU are the one in control.

3. MAKE THE BEST OF EVERY SITUATION 

When life gives you lemons... make lemonade. We ALL have days/ times in our life when things don't go our way or when bad things happen. We can either let these situations eat away at us and destroy us, or we can change our perspective and make the best of these situations. Stay positive and keep on making the best of things.

4. STAY PEACEFUL, EVEN IN HOSTILE TIMES
It's easy to get angry and lash out. It's easy to lose it and hold grudges, however, you need to learn to stay peaceful in these hostile situations and focus on the positive outcomes. Especially with so much terror going on in the world these days it can make you feel hostile towards different people/ situations. You need to pay attention to the beauty of what the world has to offer. The more people that focus on the bad and stay angry, the more hurt and pain will grow. If you can learn to stay peaceful, your life can become a lot more positive for you and those that surround you.

5. LET YOUR GOOD RELATIONSHIPS GROW AND YOUR BAD ONES DIE

If you're really looking for an important life lesson, then this is definitely it. Once you accept to let go of relationships and friendships that have turned sour and are no longer benefiting either party, your life will become a lot more positive and you'll notice that success seems to gravitate towards you in all aspects. If you also learn to nourish your good relationships with people you will become more confident within yourself and your days will become a lot brighter/ worthwhile.

6. ALWAYS SHARE YOUR PASSIONS 

Out of all these 6 tips, I believe this one to be the most influential. I think when you have a passion, something that you truly, honestly love with all your heart. Whether it's writing, drawing, teaching, being an astronaut etc. you should share it with the world. You'll regret it for the rest of your life if you don't try your best to live your passions now and share them with the world.
