Positive thinking is an emotional and mental attitude that focuses on the bright side of life and expects a positive outcome. A person with a positive mindset believes that they can accomplish anything that they put their mind on. He or she can overcome any obstacle and difficulty. Positive thinking is not a concept that everyone believes or follows. Some people consider it nonsense.
Why is it difficult to think positively?
Humans pay more attention to dark emotions such as sadness, pain, anger and disappointments than we do to great feelings such as contentment, joy, happiness, and gratitude. Good news tends to expire while bad news tends to stick with us. Negativity is addictive. If the negative thoughts are repetitive our brain will connect synapses that were not previously stimulated to associate those thoughts with other behaviors and turn them into habits
For instance, if you work at a coffee shop and you do not like your job with the time you may start to despite the smell of coffee.
How positive thinking affects our day to day activities?
With a positive attitude, we experience happy and pleasant feelings. This brings more happiness and energy. Even our physical fitness and health are affected by beneficially. We feel more confident about ourselves. We walk tall and our voices are more powerful. Both positive thinking and negative thinking are contagious.
