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!
the best Positivity Blogs of 2023
My Personal “Top 10”
1. Little Blog of Positivity
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.

You’ll for sure want to grab her FREE eBook, The Calm Mind
2. In Pursuit of Happiness
You can always count on finding some good news here, as well as interesting stories and information.
Joan presents the information in her blog as free life coaching and gets deep into specific areas of interest such as well-being, happiness, life purpose, parenting, mental health, relationships, depression, anxiety – and many more.
I recommend you start with her series 10 Weeks to Contentment: Introduction
You could spend weeks going through all the wisdom Joan presents, and you will leave her website feeling empowered and excited about all the wonders life has to offer.

3. The Let Go
I may be a bit biased on this one, because I have met Charisse Glenn, and she is an absolutely lovely, sweet, and kind woman. She believes that the happier we are as individuals, the kinder and more harmonious the world becomes.
Each lyrically written post is sprinkled with personal stories and meaningful quotes, making them all the more personal.

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.”

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.
