How to be an Optimist

Published on

There are two types of people in this world. There are the

optimists, who see the glass half full, and the pessimists, who see

the glass half empty. Most people try to be an optimist, even though

they feel like they carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.

Sometimes it is tough, but here are some tips and tricks to stay

optimistic. First, instead of letting bad experiences get to you, think

about how you can benefit or grow from it. Doing this will help

you think “on the brighter side of things,” and clear your head from

the fog. Another tip is to surround yourself with optimistic people.

Instead of constantly being around with Debby Downers, hang out

with the people who see the glass half full. Their optimism and

joyfulness could be contagious, and rub off on you as well. Finally,

write down good things that happen throughout your day. Whether

it be a promotion or a simple compliment, writing them down and

reflecting before bed can help your mindset become more hopeful.
