In this day and age it’s pretty easy to get down in the dumps. We have such busy lifestyles, so much stress and of course the pressure of social media. So, with this in mind I thought I’d put together a post in collaboration with Pearl Drops and tell you five ways I like to stay positive, upbeat and keep that smile on my face…
Surround yourself with positive people.
I think in life it’s so important to surround yourself with good, happy, positive people. If someone’s bringing you down and makes you sad, then you should probably read this post on toxic friends! It’s so vital in life to spend time with people that lift you higher, that understand you, care for you and most importantly keep you smiling, even through harder times.
Make time for yourself
I cannot stress how important it is in life to just take some time out for yourself. If you work a lot, study hard and so on, just take one evening a week to paint your nails, read a book, watch some TV. It does the soul good to spend some valuable time on yourself, and keeps those stress levels at bay.
Do some yoga
Yoga for me is the main way I de-stress. I try to make time before my day begins to fit in some yoga. There’s something about stretching and breathing that is good for the soul – it wipes away those stressed out thoughts and puts you in a place of zen and calm. I never thought I would ever say this, but I guess you can’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
I find that my followers bring me so much joy and I always try to spread happiness to you guys. I try to be positive, let you know that you can be you and that’s cool – I guess I just like to make you guys feel happy. If my YouTube and blog is a place for me to do this, then so be it. If you don’t have those means, then buy your best friend a little ‘thank you’ gift, pop your Mum a ‘I love you’ card in the post. Lifting others higher will definitely make you feel a whole lot better. It’s nice to be nice!
Remember to Smile
And last but by no means least, SMILE! Smiling is actually proven to lift your mood, as well as others. I love seeing people walking down the street with a happy face on, there’s nothing better. I have been working with Pearl Drops for this post and I just love their motto, which you can find below.
