So I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of the term “PMA” before, however it’s something I’ve really trained myself to live by. It’s an abbreviation for Positive Mental Attitude. It’s so important that we all have PMA in our lives, and here’s why.

I truly believe that having the right frame of mind can relieve so much stress and pressure in your life. It is the key to happiness and to be able to focus well in your day to day life. I might be sounding like some spiritualist guru right now, but I’m all for it!

Put it this way. If you are struck down will illness and you really focus on the negatives, what will happen? All of your energy will be that focused on the pain that it will only heighten, because you can’t focus on the good. You’re thinking about how awful it is, when in reality it’s probably not as bad as you imagine. Start focusing on what’s good. Think about how someone else might be in a much worse position, and that your illness is only temporary. Focus on it going, and you’ll generally feel better.

I could probably go on all day with examples of how PMA can have a good impact on your life, but I have to say, it’s had an amazing impact on my life. I try and see the good in things and I feel like I’m a lot happier in myself. Yes, I had a dark period, and can appreciate how hard it is to snap out of that, but little by little I did, and I feel a million times better!

I wanted to share with you a few tips on how you can improve your PMA that really helped me

Have lots of gratitude.

Being grateful of what you have can really help you see things in a more positive light. It might be of material things, it may be for the people you have around you or your own health. The more things you are grateful for, the better your surroundings will become instantly.

Being accepting

Sometimes you have to realise that things aren’t always going to go your way, and you just have to accept that. It might make you feel disappointed for upset for a short period of time, but you’ll eventually move on, pick yourself up and focus on things that are going to bring you joy.

Optimism

It seems pretty obvious to say this, but being optimistic can bring you a lot more happiness in your life. I know someone who always looks at everything in a negative light, and that person doesn’t seem happy to me at all. I’ve tried to shift my focus on all the positive points. If something bad happens, look at the positives. For example, I’ve recently had a lot of criticism over my work lately, what were the positives? I’ve been able to take on feedback and improve what I do for the better.

Now, I know that sometimes things like this are easier said than done, so one of my main tips is to try baby steps. Find one or two small things everyday to be positive about, and eventually do more and more, until you generally have a PMA. It’s worked for me, and I’m sure it will work for you!
