Positive thinking to attract positive life experiences

Positive thinking means that you approach every situation in life in a more positive and productive way. Scientific studies confirmed that personality traits like optimism and pessimism can affect many areas of your health and well-being. The positive thinking that typically comes with optimism is a key part of effective stress management. The three most effective methods for positive thinking are:

  1. Use positive words in your inner dialogues, or when talking with others.
