We’ve all heard about the power of positive thinking, but how do we harness its life-changing energy? A positive attitude can improve every aspect of your life – health, beauty, and success. Small changes in your thinking can lead to a happier, healthier, and more beautiful you. Change your mind, change your life!
Positive Social Media
An unfortunate effect of all the social media posts and photos that we see each day is that they can sometimes have a negative effect on self-esteem and life satisfaction. Seeing other people’s posts of vacations, weight loss, and job achievements can lead us to feel lacking in our own lives. How can we change those negative thoughts to positive ones? The first step is to be conscious of it. If you feel a jealous twinge over a friend’s vacation photo shots or post about their recent promotion, try to see how it can motivate you to make your own life more satisfying. Perhaps it will show you a spot you never considered for a vacation, or help you to realize that you are unhappy in your job and might want to pursue a change. Changing your thoughts from those of envy to those of admiration can give you goals to which you can aspire. Just remember that sometimes you can simply admire other people’s joy – being happy for others is positive thinking!
Practice positivity with kinder self-talk. During your morning and evening beauty routine, find things you like about your appearance and give yourself praise. Think things like “I really love the color of my eyes” or “I have such a pretty smile”. When you start to see the differences in your skin that Christie Brinkley’s Bio-Clock Activation System has made, focus on and internalize thoughts of praise on the improvements: “Look how much brighter and smoother my skin looks”. This can be hard at first! The harder it is, the more you will realize you need to do it, and the better it will make you feel.
Verbalizing praise for others can give you a lift as well! Sometimes we admire something but neglect to mention it. Giving a simple compliment like “I love your blouse” can give you a lift and the recipient as well.
In life, we find what we look for. Find the positive!
