When bad things happen, it's easy for our minds to dwell on the sadness and dark vibes, but negative energy that gets stuck can do a lot of damage. If we spend time focusing on negative thoughts, this energy can permeate our lives and become influential. You may find yourself languishing in a depressive pit without any motivation or energy to change.
Being optimistic is about practicing positive thinking and being kind to yourself. Learn how to forgive yourself for mistakes and practice daily self-care rituals that help you clear your mind. Instead of being down on yourself, try to think of advice you'd give to someone else and follow it. Relax by surrounding yourself with beauty, and try to revel in the simple marvels of nature.
