Keeping your positivity in check is a full-time job. When life throws curve balls at you, it’s easy to get caught up in negative spin; and with massive life changes happening all around you – think weddings, babies, houses – it’s even more important to keep the good vibes flowing.
We’ve found the key to keeping positive is nurturing five life habits. All it takes is a little practice, and the permission to just be yourself. Give it a try!
Don’t Be Somebody You’re Not!
There comes a time when our personality traits begin to change, and it’s not something to fear. As we get older and wiser, we can start to notice changes in our personality we’re not familiar with, and this can often cause us to enforce personality traits we’re familiar with. Remember it’s your true personality that what makes you the person you are. Be positive because everyone feels a little self-conscious in life – its normal. Being the best and truest version of you shows uniqueness and is the best chance you’ve got of making it in this world.

Find Things You’re Interested In
Finding things you’re interested in is a huge part of having a good personality. Discovering a new passion or hobby can motivate you and enhance your confidence.
If you enjoy something, you’re bound to tell other people about it in an interesting way. Of course, it doesn’t matter what you like to do – everyone is different. From reading to even watching movies, look for new hobbies and experience what the world has to offer.

Don’t Force Your Ideas Onto Other People
Stop worrying about always agreeing with someone. The world is filled with opinions and of people from different walks of life, and you’re not always going to side with their ideas. The key to keeping the situation positive is to acknowledge what they say and not let it get to you. Relationships are easily lost due to a difference of opinion. If you feel strongly about an idea or belief, keep it to yourself; especially if you know they’re already not interested.
People will appreciate the personality of someone who is able to express their opinions about things. Just don’t go overboard.

Remain Calm, Cool and Collected
You’ve heard the expression, ‘keep your cool’, and it’s this thought that will earn you the respect you want, especially if you stay calm in a room filled with panicked people. Try to take things as they come and stop worrying about the “what ifs…”
Its not only about you but the people around. You need to make them feel comfortable whenever something bad occurs. If you overhear moaning, make a joke!

Bring Out Your Confidence!
Being confident doesn’t mean you have to overdo it or be extremely talkative. The steps to reaching a reasonable amount of confidence is to reassure yourself you’re fabulous, everyday! A confident personality will draw friends, family and colleagues closer, so there’s need to fake it, people are always attracted to someone who is motivated, sincere and real.
