M is for Mindset: How to Thrive in an Increasingly Negative World

It is no secret that life can be stressful. And it is no secret that right now, many things going on in the world are becoming increasingly tricky to navigate, no matter who you are and your situation. For example, it can be hard to stay positive with prices rising in the stores and at the pumps while working overtime to make up for the labor shortage in your company. Not to mention that the markets seem to be on a rollercoaster ride. Phew… It’s a lot. 

But creating a mindset that allows you to go with the flow and not let the complexities of the world bog you down can help you feel less heavy. And it is important to note this isn’t a suggestion to just forget the world. Rather this is a call to help you not let the little things you cannot control negatively affect your daily life. And if they do directly impact you, it may help to know that you are not alone in figuring out a way to feel some relief.

Changing your mindset can change how you interact with the world around you. And when the world is feeling heavy, this can alleviate some of that weight. Changing your mindset to adapt to make your world a little easier is never a bad thing. And even if you can’t fix all of your problems or all of the world’s problems, then maybe just trying to see things a little differently can help. 

Prepare Yourself

Preparing for the worst can seem daunting, but you can feel more comfortable with a solid plan for slip-ups when they happen. Create a budget for a rainy day. Indulge in your hobbies. And know that most things are only temporary.

 Positive Self Talk

Positively talking to yourself is the first step toward shifting your mindset. When you positively think about yourself and others, you are encouraging yourself to have a positive mindset, even if things aren’t that way. Using positive language can help you achieve more, feel better about yourself, and spread positivity within your life and community. 

 Create a few Habits/Daily Rituals

Habits or Rituals that put you into a positive mindset are essential when things seem out of control. They help us find satisfaction in the little things in life. For example, knowing you can go on a run every day after work, play tennis, or zen out with some meditation can help make the day’s stress less intimidating. So, go find some things that make you happy and find a way to make it a habit!

Changing your mindset can do wonders for your life, even during times of total peace and fulfillment. But if you are feeling like these wouldn’t begin to pull you out of a negative headspace, call a doctor or trusted professional today. Life is too precious, and our mental help is of utmost importance.
