As someone who’s a realist and strays towards the edge of a pessimist, when it comes to myself, positive thinking has always been a bit of a struggle for me. Now that doesn’t mean I hate myself or am always tearing myself down. It just means that I think I know myself well enough to know the outcome of anything to do with me – dreams, goals, and so on. The truth is, I really don’t know every outcome and when I choose to think positively rather than negatively about myself, the outcomes are almost always the complete opposite of what I had thought they’d be.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have been honing in on thinking more positively. With just having bought a house and slowly starting to move all of our belongings in, it has been a struggle. I have been extremely overwhelmed, as I’m trying to balancing work (blogging), moving in, and everything in between. When I’m overwhelmed, I usually tend to be more negative and somedays I can have a bad attitude. It’s been refreshing to challenge myself to think more positively through this season of life.
What’s kept me on track to more positive thinking? Make Positive Thinking A Habit: A 21-Day Guide to Positively Powerful Thinking brought to you by PRIMP and Pamprin. This little card of joy has been traveling with me from the old rental house, to the hotel, and to the new home. Now that we’re finally staying in the new home and my office and vanity area are in the works, you bet this delightful reminder card will be finding its home on my mirror.
WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE A POSITIVITY CHALLENGE:
They say that it takes 3 weeks for habits to form, which is why this 21-Day Positivity Challenge has been huge for me. If you’re struggling with choosing to think positively about yourself and others, I want to encourage you and join me in this journey to thinking more positively. Kick the negative thinking and self talk to the curb and choose to speak life and joy over yourself and others.
Day 1: Start Today With 3 Positive Self-Affirmations // Attach your list to your mirror. Read them aloud every day. Add to the list every day.
Day 2: Find Positive Company // Who are the stars in your social circle? Who builds you up? Stick with the stars and become one.
Day 3. Make A List Of Things For Which You’re Grateful // An attitude of gratitude is a sure fire way to attract positive vibes.
Day 4: Give Yourself And Others An “Atta Girl (Boy.)” // When you give encouraging words, you also receive them.
Day 5: Seek, And You Will Find // We are responsible for choosing our perception. Look for the good, and you’re 100% guaranteed to find it.
Day 6. Find What Brings You Joy // And order it up every single day. Unlike fleeting pleasure, joy is consistent. We cultivate it internally.
Day 7. Stop To Smell The Roses. Give One Away. // Be present minded enough to give and receive life’s simple gifts.
Day 8. Hit “Replay” And Make It A Habit // Positive thinking begets positive action. Positive action (over and over) creates positively powerful results.Why You Should Take A Positivity Challenge Click To Tweet
For me, the most powerful parts of this challenge are in days one, four, and five. The other days are moving for me, but there is something about these other three days that are hugely monumental for me.
By starting off each day with at least 3 positive affirmations is the best way that I can start my day. When I choose to uplift myself from the moment I wake up, I’m more motivated and encouraged to face the day and work well.
- I do make a difference.
- I am multi-talented and have immense potential.
- There is no one like me. I’m unique – and that’s beautiful.
It has always been my heart to lift others up. I’m an encourager. That’s what I do and I’m humbled to do it. If I see something beautiful in someone, I speak it. If I see potential, I’m going to speak into it. When I see growth and success, you bet I’m going to celebrate with others! That’s my heart. Cheering others on is not only a blessing to others, but it’s a blessing to my heart, as well. It will always bring me an abundance of joy.
The most powerful part of this challenge for me has been day five. I’m responsible for my attitude. To be honest, this is tough for me. Again, I’m a realist and with myself, I’m naturally more negative and I think that’s the slight perfectionist in me. My attitude and perception is my greatest battle. Even in just the short time I’ve been honing in on positivity, I have noticed a difference in my attitude. This has been huge for me and I’m excited to keep on making progress in this area.
When it’s “that time of the month”, I can be all over the place with my thinking and attitude. This is why it’s so important that I continue with this challenge until it’s embedded into my heart.
I love that Pamprin is all about promoting positive thinking and self-talk. I depend on Pamprin Maximum Strength (with caffeine – pink box) for those days where I really need relief during my period. For the nights when I’m struggling to find relief, Pamprin Multi-Symptom (caffeine-free – blue box) is what I rely on.
Pamprin stands out amongst the rest, because it doesn’t just treat pain. It treats pain and cramps, bloating, and irritability… none of which are fun in anyway! Pamprin Multi-Symptom contains three active ingredients: an antihistamine to relieve irritability, a diuretic to fight against bloating and water weight gain, and a pain reliever to alleviate cramps.
