“A positive attitude is a mindset that helps you see and recognize opportunities.”
I am definitely going to be entering into this activity this month! A Positive Attitude by definition is a state of mind that envisions and expects favorable results. “Positive thinking doesn't mean that you keep your head in the sand and ignore life's less pleasant situations.” Rather, it means you face life, together with its problems, in a positive and productive manner.
Did you know that having a positive attitude can actually be contagious? Here are a few ways you can exercise a positive attitude this month (but don’t stop there, carry it throughout the year, as well.)

MOTIVATING YOURSELF TO HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
Negativity is easy to let into your life if you don’t watch it. In this month of Positive Attitude Awareness, let’s explore ways to self-motivate one’s self towards positivity.
Take control over what you can, and stop worrying about what you can’t. There’s a saying “Worry is like a rocking chair, a lot of work but gets you nowhere.”
Have an attitude of positive expectancy. Are you a cup half full or a cup half empty kind of person? By all means, be the cup half full. Another way to say that is make lemonade out of lemons.
Try to read or listen to positive information. Don’t enter into negative conversations about others. Rather allow yourself to remain neutral or else not engage in those conversations at all.
Our Words are important. What we say to others makes a world of difference. There is energy in your words, both positive and negative. Why not choose positive. The more you do, the more it is reinforced and pretty soon, it will not only become a habit, but will be something you will be known for.
Sharing positive things in your life with others will be beneficial to you and them. Don’t forget to ask about someone else and encourage them in their plans and goals. This is a great way to start a positive relationship with someone.
“OPTIMIST: SOMEONE WHO FIGURES THAT TAKING A STEP BACKWARDS AFTER TAKING A STEP FORWARD IS NOT DISASTER, IT’S MORE LIKE A CHA-CHA”
MOTIVATING OTHERS WITH A POSITIVE WORD
What does that mean? Well, you could say the following to someone:
Tell someone you love them
Tell someone they make you smile
Tell someone you are thinking of them
Tell someone you have faith in them
Tell someone not to give up
Tell someone to stay strong
POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND YOUR HEALTH

Greater resistance to the common cold
