Positivity is positive energy.
It's about seeing the best in everyone and everything you do. When you're optimistic and maintain a bright outlook on life, it really changes the way you see yourself and others around you will notice; Positivity is infectious! However, being positive is easier said than done... especially when life throws challenges and unpredictable situations your way.
In times like this, I maintain positivity by surrounding myself with people who bring out the best in me and by evaluating all the wonderful things in my life, even if things aren't going so well. But because we're all searching for happiness, sometimes we forget that it's ok to be negative. It's perfectly normal to have those days when you're down in dumps and feeling small. Take it as an opportunity to consider what you can do differently and how to improve your situation. However, if you find that this negativity is prolonged, uncontrollable, and impacting your life, try seeking help from a friend or a professional counselor. Baruch's health and wellness center is an incredible resource that you can always use if you need somebody to talk to.
