Why Positive People Are Happier And More Satisfied With Life
Figuring out what makes some people more favorable than others involves understanding the roots and origination of their positivist. How much of that optimism is derived from nature and innate biology, versus how much of it is a consequence of nurture, and their upbringing and environment?
Positive People Are Happier
The answers to why being positive contribute significantly to a person’s happiness in life are surprisingly simple and easy to grasp considering the complexity of their implications in our lives.
The following are a few concrete reasons for the happiness that positive people enjoy. They are not exclusive to the people who are already fortunate enough to possess them. Happiness is there for anyone and everyone who chooses to participate in their joy.(Source)
They Are in Touch with Spirituality
Studies have shown that people who are in touch with their spiritual nature tend to feel more fulfilled than people who neglect this aspect of their humanity. Spirituality is not necessarily synonymous with any organized religion.
Instead, it is the willingness to recognize and gain wisdom from that less logical or pragmatic senses and feelings that we experience as humans. (Source)
Positive people love to help others
Happy people love heartily and fully and can explore everything that can be extracted from the feeling of love. When we view ourselves and each other in a generally positive manner, we can care more deeply, getting and giving the most out of that feeling.
Along with this concept comes generosity, and the willingness to help others. Volunteerism, for example, is an expression of love that not only generates a feeling of gratitude from the recipient but also is incredibly cleansing for the volunteer — essentially making volunteering a “win-win” way in which to spread love and the positivity that is the product of that kindness.
Happy people know yourself
Another concept that seems to be uniform amongst all generally happy people is that they have made themselves aware of what it is that they have an inherent, biological inclination.
They have an understanding of what they could use a little work getting good at. They approach those natural weaknesses and shortcomings humbly and as challenges to be accepted versus impossible obstacles over which to become bitter and frustrated. The latter attitude only results in inefficiency and tends to spread negativity both in ourselves and those around us.
When considering your attitude and outlook on life, whether or not you are happy or miserable, is to remember that you have more control over these emotions and ruts that are so easily fallen prey to than you think.
This is the main idea behind most meditative practices. Meditation is a form of exercise for the mind during which the metaphorical muscles that power our mood can be calmed, mastered and manipulated in such a way that we take power over them. We decide what we allow ourselves to feel and what we don’t.
How do you stop being a negative person?
If you are feeling miserable, you feel uninspired and depressed, angry at all people, places, and things, you CAN change that. Without medication, on your own, concentrating and putting effort into finding and discovering the joy that exists all around you.
