Positivity, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, is defined as “the practice of being or tendency to be positive or optimistic in attitude.” A glass-half-full perspective on life, if you will. Today, I bring to you a list of several of my favorite positivity blogs that will boost your happiness when you read them.

I think it’s vital to keep in mind that positivity is a practice.
Perhaps some people, for various reasons, may be naturally “happier” than others.
However, positivity is not an inherent trait – it is a practice. The more we flex our positivity muscles – the more we work at it – the more positivity we will all experience in our own lives.
Positivity is something that we have some control over, something we can build, something we can grow.
In fact, studies have shown that a full 40% of positivity is based on situational response. Your outlook is so, so important.
And that’s the real reason I am sharing these blogs about positivity. Because the words inside each of them will help us to grow as more positive people.
Knowledge really is power!
My Favorite Positivity Blogs
The very first blog I discovered that focused on the topic of positivity is the aptly named Little Blog of Positivity. Alison, who hails from the UK, and I have never met in real life but we are in frequent communication via social media, and I think of her as a friend I’ve yet to meet.
She created her blog in order to provide her readers with tools and tips to help them live more confident, fulfilling lives.
Her topics include mindfulness, confidence building, goal setting, and healthy living. I know it sounds a lot like what I’m trying to achieve on my blog!
I love her fresh, practical approach and friendly writing style.

2. Ariana Dagan
I’ve only recently connected with Ariana, but I do enjoy her blog posts tremendously. She is a happiness and success coach, who provides “Intentional Living for Overwhelmed Mamas”.
Although my babies have flown the nest some time ago, I still find value in Ariana’s words and enjoy reading her posts about how to reclaim your happiness, rediscover your identity, and reach new levels of success.
There is something here for everyone, even if you are not currently raising kids.
You can always count on finding some good news here, as well as interesting stories and information.
Joan will make sure you leave her website feeling empowered and excited about all the wonders life has to offer.
This is an excellent blog to read about happiness, kindness, generosity, gratitude, and positive thinking. You are sure to learn something new!

Dani is a long-time blogger – she’s been at it since 2009, which gives her a wealth of experience and wisdom to share.
In her own words, “Posts on Positively Present strive to support the idea that life is best lived if it’s lived right now with a positive attitude. Be positive. Be present. This is your life.”
I absolutely loved: Regard Yourself as a Cloud
Kathy has been writing books and articles covering many different topics for quite a few years – she has seven published books! (I’m not jealous, I find her inspiring! Ok, I’m a little jealous, too.)
In her blog SMART Living 365 she explores ideas and experiences that help to create a meaningful, sustainable, compassionate, and rewarding life for herself and others.

This blog is another recent find, and it’s a treasure!
Victoria has a unique approach to blogging – she is “living love” for each year. Each month, she chooses a word that resonates with her and writes a post every day relating to the word.
This blog just bursts with the joy of being alive, which you feel just reading her tagline, “We live love by practicing love. By practicing love, we live love.” Beautiful.
April’s word is BE, as in: Be Curious
Ah, Ellen – you speak my language. As a lifestyle blogger and life coach Ellen’s focus is on midlife women who have “graduated” from the chaos of career and kids, only to realize that they have become their own lowest priority.
She shares inspirational ideas and resources to help them move forward in lives filled with more joy, purpose, and fun than ever before.

Thanks for sharing, Gail!
