Positive Vibes Quotes
Every day we have a choice. We can choose to see the beauty even in the smallest things or we can choose to see all the things that irritate us and that aren’t perfect. Sometimes we need a bit of a reminder to look for those positive vibes and remember the importance of being positive so in this article we are sharing our favourite positive vibes quotes to lift you up.
These positive vibes quotes are perfect for a social media caption or to be printed off and displayed around the house as an instant pick me up and reminder of the power of positivity.
Why is positive thinking important?
Actively taking steps to think more positively and doing things such as reading/ repeating positive quotes or using positive affirmations on a daily basis will help to keep your brain from engaging in negative thought patterns and can have a real effect on your mental and even physical health. The John Hopkins university has found that those with a family history of heart disease, that have a positive outlook are 25% less likely to have a heart attack than those with a negative outlook. BBC Science agrees that positive thought patterns can help your physical and mental health so it has got to be worth a try hasn’t it?
As someone who has always suffered with anxiety and a tendency to ruminate I find that taking steps to look for the positive and doing daily physical activity as well as looking for beauty has made a huge difference, but no one wakes up feeling 100% positive everyday. It is ok for us all to feel our feelings; in fact we need to. So being positive is not about ignoring your feelings, but instead about reframing the difficult, looking for the positive and reminding yourself that even though everything may not be perfect doesn’t mean that everything is dreadful. One thing that has really helped me with implementing being intentional about positivity is journaling. My self care business Just 15 for Me has created a stunning journal that I am sure you will love and is full of positive vibes quotes:
Positive Vibes Quotes
“Being positive doesn’t mean that everything is perfect; it means your outlook on life is perfect.”
A positive life means you are happy with what you have. You’re grateful for what you have, and optimistic about the future. It’s a choice to be positive, because being negative doesn’t get us anywhere except down in the dumps or angry at others who aren’t as fortunate as ourselves.
“Be humorous, be witty and be positive.”
Humor is a great way to relieve stress, connect with people and express yourself. It’s also an excellent way to make others feel good. But how can you use humor as a tool for positive thinking?
Humor is all about having fun with life’s ups and downs. If you find something funny, chances are someone else will too! The trick is finding things that make us laugh–and then sharing them with others so we all have some laughs together!
“I think that being positive is a choice. You can choose to be negative, or you can choose to be positive. As long as you have the power of choice, you will have a good life.”
“Nothing is more beautiful than a smile, unless it’s the smile that creates the laughter within a person.”
Larry Wilde Jr.
Smiling is a great way to make other people happy, but it can also make you feel better about yourself. Smiling is contagious and makes others feel comfortable around you. If someone smiles at you, it’s likely that they’ll be more receptive to whatever it is that you want from them, but it is more than that; smiling is proven to reduce your stress and have a positive affect on your physical being.
“You can’t control what happens to you in life but you do decide how long it bothers you.”
“The secret of happiness is found in making others glad we are alive, by giving them happiness from our presence. It’s not in getting what we want but in wanting what we have.”
Happiness is not something that can be obtained from external sources, but rather it comes from within. Happiness is a choice and one that you must make for yourself every day. If you’re constantly seeking happiness outside yourself, then chances are you’ll never find it because there will always be something else out there for which you yearn–and this constant need for more will leave no room for contentment with who or where you currently are in life (or even worse: if someone else has what they want).
Do life with love!
Stop when you’re happy with what you’ve achieved!
Everyday is a day to be happy!
Recognize your struggle to recognize your progress!
This really speaks to the idea of reframing things to create positive thought and it is doing just that, that will help you to change your mindset and feel the benefits of positive thought.
I don’t know how I will do it yet, but I will do it!
You deserve happiness!
The Dalai Lama positive vibes quotes
‘If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.’
In his book The Art Of Happiness: A Handbook For Living, author His Holiness The Dalai Lama writes
“A true friend is one who sees the good qualities in another despite his faults.”
He goes on to say
“If we can see something beautiful within ourselves and appreciate those positive aspects of our character then this helps us become happier.”
‘When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. But when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself, ‘Oh yes – I already have everything that I really need.’
I hope these positive vibes quotes have inspired you to see life in a new way. The world is full of beauty and wonder, but often we miss it as we are too busy getting through the day. We have to open our eyes before we can see beauty in the small things and find that positivity. We all need to feel our feelings and deal with difficult situations and none of us feels happy 100% of the time, but there is always a benefit to looking for the positive. The more intentional you become about finding those positive vibes, whether it is through printing quotes and having them framed around your home, writing in a gratitude journal, reframing your thoughts or just looking for a moment of positivity and joy in everyday, the easier it will become.
