10 Tips to stay positive in life

One of the constant battles on my journey is escaping the negative. I've had to find my happy medium. I've created a list of things that help me stay positive, hence my 10 tips to stay positive in life.

Staying positive in life has been one of the hardest things to do. I've had to do some drastic changes. I feel they are drastic because I have always been the peacemaker. I had to stop caring about what others thoughts about me to find some peace. I've always wanted everything to be happy go lucky and for everyone to get along. The reality is it weighs you down so much more than you hope and in the process you realize who really cared at all.

But staying positive in life goes beyond dealing with others. Sometimes situations lead us to a negative state and it is our power of decision that help us move forth... or not

I've decided to share 10 tips to staying positive. These have helped  me but again this is a continuous battle for a person like me that is highly emotional. In no specific order:
  1. Read a positive quote a day to start your day and read it again at night to end your day.
  2. Surround your self with supportive positive people. 
  3. Release yourself from negative minds or those that may cause put down even when it's family.
  4. Do things that make you happy Learn what makes you happy and choose to be happy!
  5. Listen to positive speakers YouTube has tons just type in Positive speakers
  6. Don't speak negative! Give attention to what is positive instead- There's a difference between venting and dwelling on the negative. 
  7. When the negative comments or actions come near dismiss them Move on. Be the bigger person and just move on
  8. Journal. It doesn't help to talk to someone about it sometimes, especially that person causing pain. It does however, helps to release your emotions on paper, Write it out!
  9. Don't hold a grudge or plot revenge. It only continues to affect you.
  10. Meditate or give yourself space. Allow yourself some time to gather your thoughts and bring peace to yourself.

These are just a few of the things I do. I don't do them all the time and I don't do them all the time to just to stay positive. I believe that being consistent in what brings you peace will allow the positivity to also become consistent.


  1. I love this! I know I try but sometimes get sucked in it too! Going to bookmark and print to remind myself XOXO

  2. Hi amiga! I had been crazy busy and did not have a chance to come to this your new corner in a long time. I love the design, the openness of the name, leading to a conversation. Love the tips, I'm going to start applying some of those in my daily life. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I don't worry about what others think of me as much as I want to be in control of everything. Knowing I can't be in control all the time and things will still be okay gives me some peace of mind.

    Loving the positivity, amiga!

  4. Love your positivity, Ruby. The best way for me to keep negativity at bay is to be a quiet observer of my own thoughts. I know that sounds strange, but it's like watching yourself from the outside. As soon as a negative thought creeps in, I correct it with something positive. It takes practice! Keep it up, Amiga. Thank you for sharing your tips. <3

  5. I have stopped letting many people in my life because of that same reason, I want to have a life with as much positivity as possible, great job on this post, great tips, and sending you many hugs!!!!!
