6 Tips to Develop Positive Thinking

Written by Dr. Veena Madhankumar and medically reviewed by iCliniq medical review team

Positive thinking

Positivity does not always have to come from success or happiness. In fact, positive people tend to be more successful than people who still cling to failure in life. This does not mean you have to take failure lightly, it is just that you have to learn your lesson from failure and move along.

Here are a few tricks using which you can always have a positive attitude towards life.



1. Listen to good music.


Listening to music is something almost all of us want to do. Music helps improve your mood and takes your mind off matters which are bothering you and clears your mind. Pleasant music can stabilize your mood and helps think clearly.

2. Don’t watch television passively.


Watching television mindlessly is not very good. There is nothing wrong with watching a game, a good movie or your favorite TV show. But make sure you do it for a specific reason and at a particular time. Mindlessly scrolling up and down all the channels is not advisable.




3. Be aware of the negativity.


Criticizing has become the common way to express opinions nowadays. People tend to think they know better by criticizing someone else’s thought or game plan. Stay away from such negativity. Critics might at times get on your nerves, do not fall for this. If you have a plan make sure you think it through and fight towards achieving it.


4. Change your definition of happiness.


Happiness does not mean you will always be doing something or the other which constantly excites you and the people around you. Happiness can be very simple and can be found in small deeds. Set short-term life goals and you will get a sense of happiness and closure.




5. Have projects.


Achieving a life goal can give you happiness. But simply having one and knowing that you are fighting towards that with all you can gives you a sense of satisfaction towards your efforts. Understand that every new effort you make is a learning curve. Though you might not achieve everything, you will learn a lot from your efforts towards the goals.


6. Exercise.


Exercising regularly can keep you fit in the long-term while giving you a sense of accomplishment in the short term. Exercising can get a little tough while you are on it, but the benefits you reap from them are huge.
