incorporating positivity into my daily life

being positive is one thing that I strive to be. I strive to be at peace and happy with my life. There are a couple of things that I have tried to change in my life to make that possible. Below are just a few of them.

  • meditating daily

I really enjoy meditating. I’ve done various posts on where I like to meditate {I even found a tree at my school were I meditated at the beginning of the year but sadly it has been cut down 😦 }. I find that taking a few moments to be at peace with myself have been really beneficial to me. I make sure that I’m taking time for me, which has made me really happy. After completing a mediation, I’m at peace with myself and geniunely a happier person.

  • incorporating yoga into my life

At the University of Michigan, there is this program called Group X at the gyms on campus. I paid the fee for an unlimited semester, so I can go to as many classes they offer as I want. They have yoga, zumba, kick boxing and other classes, so I try to go to yoga a few times a week. I have gone to yoga twice this week already. In addition to just doing yoga, I’ve started to work out with my friend Katie (who pushes me to work out with her- which ends up being really good and fun for both of us). I’ve been working on taking care of my body. When you take care of yourself, you radiate positivity. Your confidence is higher and you just feel better about life in general. Also pay attention to your posture. Sit with feet on the ground (with my height at certain seats that’s not an option but try), with your shoulders back. Good posture will go a long way! It helps to keep the energy flowing.

  • sleeping good

Recently, I’ve found out that a lot of college students do not sleep. THIS IS NOT HEALTHY. Studies show that in order for your body to recharge, you need eight hours of sleep daily. Every one’s body is different though. I know for myself, if I sleep between 8-9 hours (closer to nine is better) I feel great in the morning. It starts my day off on a good note. I also wake up to “Excuse Me” by Jazmine Sullivan, which is one of my favorite songs. It just makes me happy. Make sure you are managing your time to take care of yourself is necessary! You are the most important thing in your life. Value yourself.

  • google chrome

I found this feature called Momentum from one girl in my writing class. Attached I have a picture of my screen today. I just love the positive quotes at the bottom. Every day I get a new quote and can put a new goal. I’ve just the goal space to place a little reminder to myself. You can even set a reminder on your phone! These little reminders make all of the difference!
