Positive Advice

A couple of weeks ago, I started a Positivity diary where I note down each day three positive things that has happened during the day and then gave a overall feeling of the day so Good, Neutral or Bad. I could write down the negative things but I know if I did that there would be more negatives than positives :( and I would just focus more on the negatives.

Also, at the back of the diary I left some pages for people to make positive comments. Firstly, I wrote a paragraph myself, tell myself that I was doing good and lots of people were supporting me. Then during the week, I asked my teachers to sign my diary with a happy or funny comment about me and I don't read the actual comment until the end of the day.

So take the other day for example, I've had a really bad day but at the end of it, I read my citizenship teacher comment and it really cheered me up and made me smile. :D It actually does work. I would recommend this to anyone who self-doubts themselves or has trouble with negativism. :idea:

It's a good idea.

My online blog works in a similar way for me. My friends congratuate me when things go well, and comfort me when things go wrong, and I do the same for them :)

I have a Positives list on the wall by my desk with 20 positive attributes of mine that I can glance at when I'm feeling low.

I started it due to my social phobia. It helps a lot.

That's a good idea. Sometimes I write like that in my journal at home. :) I also write stories and that seems to help with my de-stressing process, especially when I've had a bad day.
