With benefits to both your mental and physical health, there is a lot to be gained from adopting a positive mindset. And the best part is that summoning positivity doesn’t have to be such a strenuous, time-consuming process. With just 10 to 15 minutes a day, you can cultivate positivity within yourself. Here you’ll find 2 positive thinking meditation tips to turn a quarter of an hour into positive power.
Relax as you meditate
Meditation is all about letting go of stressful or worrisome thoughts. That’s it! If you spend just a few minutes per day feeling relaxed and peaceful, you automatically shift your mind into a more positive place. When you feel more relaxed, you naturally think more positively! Start with a short period of time, like 5 or 10 minutes a day. You can meditate first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, right before you go to bed at night, or at any time. The most important thing is to consciously let go of unproductive thoughts and feelings — and relax.
Practice daily affirmations
What are affirmations? Affirmations are statements that are used in a positive present tense language. For example, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better, better and better” is a popular affirmation used by the late Norman Vincent Peale. Create your own affirmations, and start your day by saying them out loud. It wouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to repeat your affirmations; yet when done consistently, these positive affirmations will seep into the subconscious mind to cultivate the new positive you.
