These tried and true tips will help you take on the day with confidence, and with a wild and wacky spring in your step..

In her book ‘Mindset’, author, Dr Carol Dweck, a renowned Stanford psychologist, says that ‘Mindset is a set of attitudes’.

So what is an attitude?

Attitude, is where you place your focus. You know the old … half glass full or glass half empty, scenario. Where we focus, becomes our attitude and our reality.

When we change our mindset and focus to one of growth, possibilities, and self - love, we can change the course of our lives.

We can do these 3 simple steps each day, quickly and easily, to improve our mindset and attitude, and ultimately every area of our life:

1. Just Breathe (3 minutes)

just-breathe

Some of us forget to breath.

As soon as we are under pressure, feel a bit stressed… we shallow breathe and in some cases hold our breath. No wonder we can’t cope or we have a less than desirable attitude… our brain is starving for oxygen.

Studies show that just a few minutes a day of quiet and purposeful breathing can open our minds, and make it available for our most innovative and creative ideas.

Sit or stand in a quiet spot, feet on the floor, and hands by your side or on your lap. Now just quiet your mind—picture a place that is your idea of peace, perhaps walking on a beach or sitting looking at a mountain view. Whatever, peace is for you.

Breathe, consciously and deeply from your belly. In through your nose to a slow count of 4, and then out through your mouth as if you’r’ blowing through a straw, to a count of 8.

If your thoughts intrude, let them float through, notice them and carry on. You don’t have to be a meditation guru to do this easy breathing technique.

Three minutes of quiet, deep breathing a couple of times during the day can help us get back on track if stress levels are high. Conscious breathing also helps our minds become more clear, allowing a greater capacity to problem solve, get creative and to come up with even greater solutions or the next step to our challenge.

2. Check your thinking (3 minutes)

What you fill your mind with is super powerful.

Here is a quick exercise to do…

- look around the room and count the number of red things you can see. It will just take 30 seconds. Go ahead and count them now.

How many did you get?

Now my question to you is, ‘How many blue things did you see?…

Hang on, I hear you say…

I know, I know I said to count the red… but here’s the thing, this is how we go through life with our thinking. You looked for the red and only the red… but there was probably a whole lot of other colours you could have noticed if you had looked.

Here’s the thing…We only see and hear what we are looking and listening for, to the exclusion of everything else. So the question is, ‘What do you look and listen for?’ Where is your focus? Is the glass half empty or is the glass half full?

What you focus on, is what you get.

Our thoughts are powerful. Where we choose to focus our thoughts determines our mindset and attitude. Thoughts create feelings and emotions, they create the words that we speak, which lead to our actions and behaviors that determine our character and ultimately the life we are going to have.

Learning that we can choose our thoughts is one of the most powerful things we can do to take charge of our lives. Yes, we do have the power to control our thoughts.

Spend some time each day, thinking on the good things about your life or career instead of the problems. Think about positive things—things that you enjoy and that give you a sense of happiness, joy and peace. Things that make you smile.

Let your positive mindset and attitude develop from within as well as from without. This makes all the difference!

3. Write Your Grateful List (3 minutes)

be-grateful

Leading on from number 2, you will find this tip for creating a positive mindset and attitude is easy, joyful and super effective. Set a timer and write down at least five things you are grateful for every day.

According to research by UC Davis psychologist Robert Emmons, keeping a gratitude journal contributes to a positive life attitude, and makes us feel great, sleep better, and helps us have a stronger immune system.

Try for a different list each day, and at the end of the week you will be surprised how this helps your mindset. Lash out and buy a special journal and make writing your gratitude list a special time in your day.

That’s it—just 9 minutes and you are well on your way to a more positive and joyful mindset.

Practice this for just two weeks. You will see a tremendous difference in your productivity and your attitude. Give it a go.

Have a fabulous week.
