To change your habits, you must change your immediate environment. If you need help changing your surroundings, here are 3 easy ways to surround yourself with a little positivity:
1. Make your phone happy. It seems like 99% of the world has a cellphone, particularly a smart one at that. With so many people connected to their phones, why not make that instrument of communication a means to create happiness. Change your ringtone to a joyful song, like Happy by Pharrell (which happens to be my ringtone at the moment). Save a photo, work of art or saying that makes you simle as your phone’s wallpaper. Choose a phone case that represents what you’re all about. Why get a boring black case when there is such a wide variety cellphone cases out there?
2. Dress up your home, your clothes and your office with bright colors and positive reminders. Your home is your sanctuary so make it wonderful. You can add some color to your couch with a decorative pillow or get a new bedroom set to liven up your bed or hang an uplifting piece of art on your wall or if safe, get some spiritual candles and incense and place them throughout your home. For your clothes, you can be daring and throw in some color with your shirts, accessories and anything else you’d like for your day to day wear (yes that includes men as well!). Lastly, for your office, you can place framed photos of loved ones that bring you joy on your desk, tape a motivational quote that keeps you going at the top of your computer or phone and if allowed, play music that relaxes and lightens your mood.
3. Be around people that motivate and celebrate. The influence of others can make or break a person’s day so why surround yourself with negative folks that are always complaining, always putting down others, always miserable and always sad when you can find folks that are positive, peaceful, encouraging and fun? The choice should be simple but oh how we forget the simplicity in change. Thankfully, a little positivity is here to remind you of how simple positive change can be with 3 simple ways.
