    What are your ways of staying positive?

    keep focusing on the positives because there's always going to be negatives everywhere you turn.  I just don't want to waste time dwelling on negatives while the positives pass.  Sometimes its hard but I would feel much more foolish for the time wasted.  That's how I see things anyway.

    Is the glass half empty or is it half full?  Choosing the latter incorporates gratitude which instantly changes negative to positive.  I have found that Facebook, in particular, has brought many positives to me.  HubPages, likewise.  I try to focus on the positive rather than the negative and that includes not listening to the news. smile

      So true, Susan. We should start by being grateful for everything we have.......that is already positive and turns things around!

    I stay positive by working on hubpages every day, learning and interacting with the community in a new career direction for me.

    In order to stay positive, I look beyond myself to a greater power than myself. My faith in God keeps my life in perspective. Many days in life can be challenging with their ups, downs, problems and situations. But if I know (which I do by the way) that there is someone greater than I in every situation with me, my life is enriched with the knowledge of the best outcome in every situation, regardless of the circumstance.

      God's every answer is indeed a positive one for us, even if the answer is no!

    I stay positive by not depending on anybody to do it for me...

    By keeping my surroundings positive as well. Very colorful, interesting, lots of books to keep me happy, plenty to entertain, etc.

    I am always positive as I find myself no reason of being negative.

    It is the question that I had asked myself in the past, what good when I am negative? The answer is nothing good. So why be negative in life as it may be harmful to our bodies.

    I have learnt in Feng Shui that I have to create the positive Qi energy that helps in my life so now I am always being positive and practising Qigong as well as application of Feng Shui to generate the positive energy for my family and myself.

    Always looks at the brighter side of life as there is always a way to better lives.

    Besides things mentioned in the other great answers here, I've found 2 things useful.

    The first is building habits of looking at the bright side of things. The more I do it, the easier it gets.

    The second is to keep an eye on the stories I tell myself. When I start obsessing over what's wrong or telling myself "ain't it awful?" I can work myself into a negative mood pronto; but if I'm talking positively to myself, my energy lifts..
