How To Have A Positive Mindset?
Today I want to focus on how to have a positive mindset in the midst of an economical shift. The past couple weeks have definitely reminded us all that we are living in crucial times. A time when we are required to live in faith more than ever before!
While I understand that everyone’s situation is totally different, to which I am empathetic. I want to use my platform to inspire, raise awareness, encourage and motivate others.
As I believe we can all support and lift each other up in different ways. Regardless of if we are doing okay, or have been negatively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
My heart goes out to all those who have lost their source of income, family and loved ones. But I want to emphasise that despite our circumstances, we have the power within ourselves to live in faith or live in fear.
These are my 10 tips on how to have a positive mindset during an economical shift.

How To Have A Positive Mindset By Practicing Self Care
Do what brings you the most inner peace! Perhaps you have been neglecting yourself while taking care of everyone else around you. Find some time to practice self care by listening to music or a podcast.
Exercise, read a good book, have a spa at home or engage in a skincare routine, eat healthy or meal prep for the week.
Focus On The Positives
In the midst of the chaos you have to focus on what positives can be derived from your situation. Maybe you have been forced to work from home now.
If that’s the case then this is your chance to start your own online business or to focus more time on the one you already have. Or the opportunity to spend more time with your family.
Perhaps you might have been released from your current job not knowing what the future holds. How about starting a blog, podcast or YouTube channel. Think about ways you can put your skills at work by helping people who are in need at this time.
Now is not a time to buy that fancy spring dress you saw on ASOS. In fact, you want to hold on to your savings and the extra money in your bank account.
Even if you still have a steady stream of income at the moment. If you must spend, only buy what you need and defer buying the things you desire.
How To Have A Positive Mindset By Being Grateful
If we are being honest, nobody expected the decade to start off like it did. So while our current situation may not be ideal or how we had imagined, we have to be grateful. Grateful that it could have been worse or simply look around and count our blessings.
Draw Closer To Your Spiritual Being
I believe that there is only one God. Others may have a different opinion or belief system. This is not a time to point fingers and cast blame. Instead, use this time to draw nearer to your God in prayer!
At the end of the day only Him can see us through the good and bad times.
It’s natural for the human being to worry, especially in uncertain times. But you can’t have faith and worry at the same time. Worrying only leads to unwanted stress that often results in unhappiness.
When you worry it does not improve the situation but rather, leaves room for negativity to dwell.
Also, you can’t worry over things you have no control over. Although, that doesn’t mean we can’t contribute positively. We can be cautious, smart and do our part as a society.
So, in order to have a positive mindset, you’ve got to leave worrying behind!
How To Have A Positive Mindset By Journalling
Sometimes a great way to maintain a positive mindset is by putting your thoughts on paper. Take 10-15 minutes out of your busy schedule to write down what’s on your mind.
Revisit them from time to time and see what needs to be actioned, and what needs to change. Remember thoughts lead to actions and action leads to results.
In other words, what you dwell on will become your reality.
Surround Yourself With Positive People
This might be a tough one but our environment and the people around us contribute to our reactions. Not everyone is fortunate to be surrounded by positive individuals.
But most times we have a choice to distance ourselves from situations and persons deemed toxic. It’s equally important for you to be aware of the energy you give off and how they can affect those around you.
Envision Your Future
Last but not least, envision your future! Think about what you are going to do when you make it through this economical shift. Start planning for your future successes.
Imagine yourself doing the things you’ve always dreamt of. It could be as simple as going on vacation or buying an investment property.
