Positivity - Honsbridge International School - Exceeding Expectations

Positive thinking can improve your happiness and wellbeing.

Positive thinking is focusing on things that have gone well and how you’ve made them happen.

Regular positive thinking exercises can get you into the habit of thinking more positively.

Focusing on positive thinking:

  • Identify areas to change.
  • Check yourself.
  • Be open to humour.
  • Follow a healthy lifestyle.
  • Surround yourself with positive people.
  • Practice positive self-talk.
  • Be gentle and encouraging with yourself.

Practicing positive thinking every day

If you tend to have a negative outlook, don’t expect to become an optimist overnight but with practice, eventually your self-talk will contain less self-criticism and more self-acceptance.

You may also become less critical of the world around you.

When your state of mind is generally optimistic, you’re better able to handle everyday stress in a more constructive way.

That ability may contribute to the widely observed health benefits of positive thinking.

“More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate.” – Roy T. Bennett
