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. How do you develop positivity? Read these blogs and you’ll learn all you need to know about positivity.
Perhaps some people, for various reasons, may seem to be naturally “happier” than others.
However, positivity is not an inherent trait – it is a practice.
It is an attitude about and toward life, of making the most of any circumstance – good, bad, or otherwise.
Positivity is something that we have some control over, something we can build, and something we can grow.
It is something we can learn about and develop within ourselves.
The more we flex our positivity muscles – the more we work at it – the more positivity we will all experience in our own lives.

I think it’s vital to keep in mind that positivity is a practice.
In fact, studies have shown that a full 40% of positivity is based on situational response.
Yep, how you REACT to a situation matters more than the situation itself.
Your outlook is so, so important.
And that’s the reason I want to share these blogs about positivity with you. Each blogger comes from a somewhat different perspective (because, as humans, we are naturally different).
Each has powerful wisdom to share.
Take a look at some (or all!) of these blogs, dive into the articles inside them, and see which ones resonate with you the most.
And experience greater positivity for yourself!

My Personal “Top 10”
The very first blog I discovered that focused on the topic of positivity is the aptly named Little Blog of Positivity. I’ve never met Alison, who hails from the UK, in real life but through our blogs and social media, I think of her as a friend I’ve yet to meet.
She created her blog and business (she’s a certified life coach) 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. Sound familiar? Yes, we have a lot in common!
I love her fresh, practical approach and friendly writing style.
