Positive thinking is a word we have heard several times and we always advice others to think positive. If someone is upset or worried very lovingly we put our arm across their shoulders and ask to think positive. It is a word we believe in and want to live in. But have we ever thought what is positive thinking?

What is Positive thinking?

Positive thinking is a mental attitude in which you expect good and favourable results. It is the process of creating thoughts that create and transform energy into reality. A positive mind waits for happiness, health and a happy ending in every situation.

So the question now arises why we feel negative or are negative thoughts wrong?

The answer to this question is that like positive thoughts a person may get negative thoughts too. It is a natural process. Being negative for a minute is not wrong as it is natural but being negative all the time is wrong because it gives you mental stress as well as distracts you from your goal.

What are Negative Thoughts?

Negative thoughts can be in the form of fear or worry. Blaming or belittling someone, feeling jealous, comparing with someone, feeling hurt about what someone said, feeling resentful about someone all comes under negative thoughts. So any thought which disturbs your state of mind, makes you feel uncomfortable is negative thought.

Now if being negative is not at all good for health so how to stay positive every time? Here are the few tips I have mentioned which will definitely help you to stay positive.
