Within everyone are goals and dreams that equate to living a happy, successful life. Everyone is different, but one thing we all need to accomplish these goals remains the same: a positive mindset. With the right mindset, you can make a positive impact in your life and in the lives of others. 

Whether you’re currently experiencing a low point in your life, or you’re in a funk, or just a natural worrier, here are 10 ways to drastically improve your mindset & your surroundings for the better… 

Add these 10 Tricks Into Your Daily Life to Achieve a Better Mindset

1. Speak it Into Existence with Affirmations 

It may seem silly, but speaking things into existence and saying affirmations every day are  important ways to improve your mindset. The Law of Attraction is a new belief that positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person’s life. 

Saying affirmations is a great way to manifest your goals and dreams and create the reality you want to live. This technique also allows you to be in control of your life which makes you more confident in yourself, your judgment and your future. 

2. Make Time for Quiet Time

Whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, it’s important to have quiet time to recharge your body, mind and spirit. According to Psych Central, silence encourages mindfulness, self awareness, relieves stress, boosts creativity, and even stimulates brain cells! 

Some of the best ways to enjoy some quiet time are being in nature, doing meditation, focusing on breathing, reading, or journaling. 

3. Give Gratitude

In positive psychology research done by Harvard, gratitude is strongly and consistently correlated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish in good experiences and memories, improve health, handle adversity, and build strong relationships. 

For a stronger, better mindset, take a moment in your day to give thanks for people, things, and memories in your life. This is also a terrific way to to begin each day!

4. Hold Stimulating Conversations

Did you know that conversations actually trigger physical and emotional changes in your brain that either open you up or close you down? That’s right, according to Psychology Today, conversations have the power to change the brain by boosting the production of hormones and neurotransmitters that stimulate body symptoms, changing our body’s chemistry. Conversations that feel good release high levels of dopamine, oxytocin, endorphins, and other chemicals. 

Gather your friends, family, or spouse and enjoy some stimulating conversation at least once a day to ensure you’re all improving your mindset & releasing  those feel good chemicals.

5. Give Back

There are many ways to give back – big and small, but all ways of giving hold a strong impact on your health. Whether you’re donating to others after Hurricane Ian or other natural disasters, volunteering at a shelter or soup kitchen, serving others on a mission trip, or hosting a charity event, the benefits for both parties are endless. The Cleveland Clinic associates giving back with lower blood pressure, increased self-esteem, less depression, lower stress levels, longer life span, and greater happiness and satisfaction. 

There are endless ways and opportunities to give back in your community or globally – choose one and commit to it at least once a month to uplift others… and yourself. 

6. Take Nootropics

Nootropics, also known as smart drugs, are the new ‘thing’ in health & wellness… and for great reasons! Nootropics are supplements designed to enhance cognitive performance. THRIVE Expand, a nootropic developed by Le-Vel, was formulated with the goal to support healthy cognition. Using premium grade ingredients, LV created a premium nootropic supplement the first of its kind in this ever-growing space. 

Add a nootropic supplement to your daily lifestyle to expand your mind and improve your mindset.  

7. Open Mind → Open Heart

Having an open mind leads to an open heart. Being open-minded to others, experiences, and creativity allows you to gain insight, opportunities, and achieve your goals. Challenge yourself and your beliefs to consider new ideas will give you insight into the world around you and will also teach you things about yourself! Forming this habit will make you mentally strong and ready to lead with an open heart to all those around you. 

8. Have Flexibility

Being flexible and having flexibility in your life allows you to evaluate and adjust to different situations, tasks, roles, and responsibilities presented to you each day. Prospect Medical explains how cognitive flexibility is related to our perceptions, emotions, actions, and even our deep motivations. Flexible thinking is also key to creativity, supports academic and work skills such as problem solving and boosts your self-esteem. 

9. Create a Mood Board 

Mood boards are a great visual tool to plan out your ideal future, generate new ideas, and accomplish your goals. Similar to trick #1, mood boards allow you to visualize your goals and dreams, and turn them into a reality. Get a poster board and grab a stack of magazines, newspapers, or print images straight off of Google, and create a one year, five year, or ten year plan! This is also a great way to center yourself and quiet your mind or a great, positive way to socialize with your friends!

10. Surround Yourself with People Who Inspire

Have you ever heard the saying, “You are who you surround yourself with”

Similarly, motivational speaker, Jim Rohn, said we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. Surrounding yourself with positive, healthy, motivated people not only improves your mindset, but your entire lifestyle. And on the contrary, surrounding yourself with negative, unhealthy, unmotivated people will only do harm and bring you down.
