The Importance Of Remaining Optimistic, Even In The Midst Of HardshipsHave you heard the saying that goes, every minute you spend feeling sad or angry you lose 60 seconds of happiness?

That’s 60 seconds of happiness that you will never get back. Now you may be wondering why it is important for you to keep a positive mindset. Keep reading this article as I explain further.

The Law Of Attraction

I would like to briefly talk to you about the law of attraction. It is the belief that everything on the planet is made up of energy. Positive emotions are made of positive energy and negative emotions are made of negative energy.

The law of attraction kicks in when like energy attracts. That means that positive energy will attract more positive energy and vice versa. Hence, it is important that you always emit positive energy, so that you will not get any negative energy. Even if you are experiencing a bad moment, you should not feel negative about it.

Think about it this way. Do you think you can really change your circumstances for the better if you feel negative while you are in a negative circumstance?

On the contrary, if you choose to stay optimistic that things will change for the better, they will, because you are emitting positive energy, which will eventually attract more positive energy to you.

Cheerful People Tend To Have More Friends

Let us think about this for just a moment. Would you enjoy hanging around with someone who is always feeling depressed, angry, and swearing under his breath?

I don’t think so. I believe you would prefer to hang around people who are lively, cheerful, optimistic, and most of all, happy.

That positive energy may even rub onto you and you could end up feeling better around them, especially if you had a bad day. If you were to start transforming your mind to be positive, I believe that you may attract more friends into your life.

Actually, I would even venture to say that some of them may even look to you as their role model.

Your Health Will Respond To Your Emotions

Believe it or not, our bodies respond to how we feel.

Have you ever heard of stories of people who live beyond the age of 100? You could credit it to them eating healthily or exercising regularly. However, the main reason for them being able to live to that age is because they remained happy and stress free, or they did not let the worries of this life eat into them.

If being free from negative emotions such as stress could give them such a long life span, imagine what it can do for you!

I hope you have been empowered to stay happy and remain optimistic. Do remember these points that I have mentioned today.
