So do this simple exercise: Smile!

How do you feel?
It’s hard to feel down when you’ve got a smile on your face. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it involves having a positive outlook on life.

Positive affirmations
Another way to spice up your life is by repeating positive affirmations on a day to day. Psychologist Dr. Carmen Harra suggests repeating a few of those affirmations might get you in to a positive frame of mind every morning once you awaken or in the dark before you sleep:

  • Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy.
  • My body is healthy; my mind is brilliant; my soul is tranquil.
  • I am superior to negative thoughts and low actions.
  • I have been given endless talents which I begin to utilize today.
  • My thoughts are crammed with positivity and my life is plentiful with prosperity.
  • Today, I abandon my old habits and take up new, more positive ones.
  • I am blessed a fantastic family and wonderful friends.
  • I acknowledge my very own self-worth; my confidence is soaring.
  • Many people find it helpful to make their own affirmations in order to personalize the language.
    You can do so by answering:

    • What are your goals?
    • What do you want out of your own life?

    Write your answers down on a journal or a notepad. Use them to make your own positive affirmations that you simply repeat to yourself whenever you would like a lift of happiness.

    For many people, happiness comes from being surrounded by supportive friends and family. Residents of PBG Domiciliary Care are a testament to that happiness. To still learn more about aging successfully.
