7 Ways Bloggers Can Enter Into A Positive Frame Of Mind

7-ways-bloggers-can-enter-into-a-positive-frame-of-mind

There is nothing that sucks the life out of a blogger like negativity.

These days, we are bombarded with news of:

  • The constant spread of COVID-19 throughout the world.
  • People losing their faith in their government leaders.
  • Rising food prices.
  • People’s homes being severely affected by storms.
  • Rising poverty in third world countries.
  • People murdering other people.

Those are some of the types of news that we are bombarded by whenever we turn on our television sets (That sort of thing can drag our spirits down to the deepest depths of depression).

So, today, I am going to share with you some simple methods of lifting your spirits.

1.) Ignoring The News For A While

It is a well-known fact that the majority of the news that is disseminated is of a negative nature; which is the reason why you will need to ignore the news on:

  • Newspapers
  • Television
  • Radio
  • Internet

The real purpose of news is to keep us abreast of what is currently taking place:

  • Locally
  • Regionally
  • Internationally

Unfortunately, taking in too much news can have a negative effect on us.

Dear friend, the best thing to do is to ignore the news for a while.

2.) Listening To Music That They Like

Listening to music that you like lifts your mood (And, that is a good thing).

Music can affect you in the following positive ways:

  • Increasing your dopamine levels in your brain (Which makes you happy).
  • Reducing your stress.
  • Boosting your motivation.
  • Increasing your energy.

So, never hesitate to listen to your favourite genre (or genres) of music.

Music is capable of working wonders in your life!

3.) Reading Inspirational Blog Posts

Reading inspirational blog posts from other bloggers is another great way of entering into a positive frame of mind.

The good news is that the blogosphere is filled with inspirational blog posts.

In my case, I have made it a habit of mine to look for inspirational blog posts via the WordPress Reader (This is done by exploring whatever is listed underneath the Inspirational tag).

I would also like to state for the record that there are lots of inspirational blog posts that are not tagged Inspirational by bloggers (So, you will need to do a lot of digging).

I suggest making a mental note of the URL of those bloggers that publish inspirational blog posts on their blog.

There is also the option of following those bloggers that publish inspirational blog posts on their blogs.

Reading an inspirational blog post from a blogger is akin to the feeling of warm sunshine on your face and on the rest of your body.

4.) Reading Books That Are Of An Uplifting Nature

Reading books that are of an uplifting nature is another way of lifting your spirits.

Here is a list (a short one) of some of the uplifting material that I have read:

  • Manifest Your Destiny: The Nine Spiritual Principles for Getting Everything You Want by Wayne W. Dyer.
  • Meditation by James Hewitt.
  • The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy.
  • Bring Out The Magic In Your Mind by Al Koran.
  • The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.

For the record, it is not imperative for you to read those books that I have read. You can purchase other books from authors that inspire you (The whole purpose of reading inspirational material is for you to become inspired).

5.) Engaging In Physical Exercise On A Regular Basis

It is a sad fact that too many of us have taken physical exercise for granted.

The good news is that we can always start today.

Why today?

Because there is no time like the present.

Saying, “Tomorrow,” might cause you to develop the habit of procrastination (A case of putting off things for a later date and not doing them when the time for doing them arrives).

On a positive note, physical exercise is known to:

  • Lift our mood.
  • Help greatly in the area of maintaining a healthy weight.
  • Keep our muscles and bones strong and healthy.
  • Increase our energy levels.
  • Reduces the risk of chronic disease.
  • Keep our brains healthy.
  • Help us to sleep better at night.

Are you getting enough physical exercise?

I hope that your answer is “Yes” because your well-being is dependant on it.

6.) Eating Some Chocolate

Believe it or not, consuming chocolate will lift your spirits.

And, why is it that eating chocolate lifts your spirits?

Chocolate contains the compound, tryptophan ― an amino acid that helps our brain to make serotonin ― a neurotransmitter that is responsible for making us feel happy.

When it comes to chocolate consumption, I recommending dark chocolate because it is very good for us. In addition to boosting our mood, dark chocolate is known to:

  • Prevent heart disease.
  • Prevent memory loss.
  • Reduce our risk of developing diabetes.
  • Helps us to lose weight.
  • Prevents us from getting certain types of cancers.
  • Combat fatigue.

I strongly advise that you eat chocolate in moderation.

Why?

Because if you eat too much chocolate you can:

  • Gain excessive weight.
  • Get acid reflux.
  • Get acne.
  • Cause tooth decay.
  • Become addicted to it.

Dear friend, there is more to chocolate than meets the eye.

Chocolate consumption has both positive and negative aspects attached to it.

So, make a promise to yourself that you would never fall into the trap of eating too much chocolate.

7.) Engaging Themselves In Prayer

Prayer helps people to enter into a positive frame of mind.

People of all religions can attest to the power of prayer (It helped them during those tough times in their lives).

Prayer is no laughing matter.

Joyce Meyer’s article, The Truth About Prayer: What It Is and How It Works, will provide you with a greater understanding of prayer.

From the looks of things, the world needs lots of prayers.

Final Thoughts

Bloggers who find themselves in a negative loop are seldom creative. Therefore, it would be in their best interest to enter into a positive frame of mind.

As you have just learned, bloggers can enter into a positive frame of mind by:

  • Ignoring the news for a while.
  • Listening to music that they like.
  • Reading inspirational blog posts.
  • Reading books that are of an uplifting nature.
  • Engaging in physical exercise on a regular basis.
  • Eating some chocolate.
  • Engaging themselves in prayer.

    1. 😮 Wow! That is most impressive, John!

      Here in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, almost everyone is psychologically conditioned to sit down with their family and watch the news on television every night a 7:00 PM.

  1. Thanks for sharing Renard! I agree with you about prayer as well, so powerful. I’m going on two weeks of not watching the news and I feel much better. Even little annoyances that happen in my life don’t seem as big (and easier to manage) because I’m not in that 24/7 stream of negativity mode.

  2. Wonderful post Renard.lots of good tips I’ve replaced prayer with meditation as I’m not a religious person, although it lacks the community support prayer gives.

  3. Agree totally with all your suggestions and would like to add two more. Stay away from people who are determined to look only at the bleak side of life and secondly, feel grateful for all that we do have now, blogging being one of them.😊 Thanks for the very constructive guidance, Renard.

  4. Hm,, two hearts are beating in my chest.

    1) We got rid of our TV long ago and now only live from internet news.So we’re not bombared.

    2) All the negative stuff in your first paragraph … I don’t know; if that doesn’t inspire you to bog about it, you have the wrong hobby.

    I’m dealing with it by having my own Corona Diary, that I write almost daily. I combinate it with news about gvt (censored) and my comments on that.

    I’m acutely aware of all the bad stuff going on in the world but I just block it out as long as it doesn’t have an impact on me personally. I can’t help the girls in Afghanistan, neither help Americans building better houses, so I don’t blog about those matters. Isn’t one of the most basic rules in blogging to blog about stuff we know about and can afford to have an opinion about? Sooooo that’s what I do!

    1. 🙂 Orca, I merged your two comments into one (I believed that you accidentally published it and that the second one was meant to complete the unfinished one).

      I also removed the cussword from your comment. Cussing is not allowed in my blog’s commenting section (People are allowed to say whatever it is that they want without cussing).

      By the way, you took my blog post’s message out of context. I am in no way insinuating that a blogger should refuse to highlight the negative things in the world via their blog (There is certainly a place and a time for that).

      As a gentle reminder, the title of the blog post is “7 Ways Bloggers Can Enter Into A Positive Frame Of Mind”.

      And, ignoring the news for a while and reading inspirational blog posts for other bloggers helps greatly with lifting their spirits.

      For the record, I chose the right hobby.

      Thank you for participating in this discussion!

      1. “For the record, I chose the right hobby.”

        Yes, you did. No question about that. The ‘you’ in my comment was meant more broadly, for everybody who isn’t inspired by bad news. I never have much to write about good stuff, but the negative brings out the blogmonster in me.

        Regarding the censored cussword, hmm. I’ve never perceived it as such, always thought that’s the generally accepted term for when your govt is caught out with its pants down. And I usually make it sound and read even more harmless by either using ‘m’ instead of ‘f’ and losing the ‘c’ altogether.

        Also I’m much too cute to be censored! ^.^

  5. According to your advice, I’m the happiest blogger there is. I only watch Inside Edition since it gives you the news without lingering on the bad stuff. I always listen to music whenever I write reviews. I have read blog posts that spoke to me especially. Nothing beats a good book. Work is a form of exercise and I do feel better doing it. I eat chocolate more than I should, but it does make me happy. Lastly, I pray on a daily basis so that’s the best for me. Thanks for putting everything into prespect, I do feel much better!

  6. Renard – I love your advice to eat chocolate, I have a piece of dark chocolate almost every day. And I love to go for walks and recharge and I always come up with ideas for new blog posts. I just have to remember them later 🙂

    1. 🙂 I am pleased to know that, Lisa.

      I would like to recommend that you carry a small notebook and a pen with you whenever you choose to go for a walk (That way, you can jot those blogging-related ideas down and never lose them).

      Thank you for participating in the discussion.

  7. Brilliant post, Renard, and helpful points made. In fact, this is one of your finest posts, IMHO!

    I try to avoid the news because of the negativity. I find music and nature lift my spirits. Taking some me-time with a cup of coffee while sitting outside does wonders for my mood. And yes, I agree that exercise and prayer can both be a positive impact on one’s wellbeing. I love your advice about eating chocolate.

  8. I also decided to ignore the news, and only take what I need, when I need as I am very empathetic and I am easily affected by bad news. However, while I feel more at peace now, sometimes I am worried I might become too ignorant of what happens in the world. Other than that, I love your article. Have a wonderful day, Renard ^^
