Maintaining a positive attitude makes you more creative, a better problem solver and a nicer person to be around. Follow these tips to harness the power of positivity and perform your best:

  • Be grateful. A study out of the University of California shows that an “attitude of gratitude” significantly reduces cortisol levels, resulting in improved well-being. Make a mental list of things to be grateful for or start a gratitude journal.
  • Focus on the positive. Keep your thoughts optimistic. When you steer toward stressful, pessimistic thinking, consciously refocus your attention on something positive.
  • Practice positive self-talk. Stop putting yourself down. When you are feeling down, think about wins you’ve experienced, and remember other challenges you’ve overcome.
  • See roadblocks as challenges. Don’t think that a task or goal is impossible. See every obstacle as an opportunity to learn, grow and overcome.
