What you think, you become. – Gautama Buddha

Imagine being on a sea cruise and you notice heaps of small bubbles appear and disappear in the water.
positive thinking psychology mindset life coachingNow imagine your mind as the big ocean and those bubbles as being your own thoughts.
They come and go, right? Exactly, our minds are thought-generating machines. However, how we act on our thoughts will shape our lives. And that involves thinking.
Thinking means action, we should try to analyze our own thoughts. If we start reacting to every thought that appear in our mind, then our life will become chaotic.
Therefore, it is important to process, analyze and regulate our thoughts. Thoughts are excellent tools to gauge our sense of being – whether we are positive/negative, happy/sad, peaceful/ unpeaceful etc.
If a particular thought, feeling or an emotion (especially the bad ones) is holding us for a long period of time, then it is a good idea to investigate “where” it is coming from and “what” we can do about it.
What is positive thinking?
Positive thinking is about developing a positive outlook towards everything in life. Often when we face life challenges – we tend to give up, blame ourselves and others, try to sweep our issues under the rug, don’t seek help and overall become a bit negative.
However, that’s not going to help us long-term unless we accept our challenges, learn from our mistakes, forgive ourselves and others, become mature, take the high road, let it go and move on with life.
We all heard about this example of how someone sees the glass filled with water as either half-full or half-empty. Life becomes less complex when we have an adaptive mindset and perceive it through a different lens.
Positive thinking involves utilizing our mind and keep working on our challenges to get the best out of any situation. An attitude of gratitude and embracing the good in others will also help. People with a positive mindset generally tend to credit after a good outcome and avoid blaming themselves or others for a negative outcome. Positive thinkers always try to learn from their mistakes and constantly grow.
Advantages of positive thinking: 
Primary benefits of positive thinking include fighting inertia, reduces complacency and laziness, longevity, active brain, clear thinking, developing healthy habits and staying fit. Having a healthy body will support developing a healthy mind and vice-versa.
It is important to address the negative self-talk that appears in our mind and replace them with positive thoughts. Developing a sense of humor and smiling/laughing more often has also been shown to increase a positive mood.
In conclusion, it is important to nurture our body, mind, spirit through activities that bring us joy and happiness for our overall wellbeing. Make sure you all surround yourselves with people that have a positive outlook towards life.  Be positive and stay positive!
