Being positive is a term that represents the action of infusing positivity into a person's life. Life is full of its turbulent times, times of disaster, and times in which a person may be experiencing overwhelming circumstances, and defeat, in what may seem to be a downward spiral. Being positive is the key to overcoming these perplexing circumstances. Not only will thinking and being positive help you emotionally, and mentally, but it will also help your physical health as well. Being positive will ultimately help decrease a person's stress levels, because those who succumb to the bad things that happen in their lives tend to think more negatively and also act more negatively as well, and ultimately have poorer health than those who choose to think and be positive.
Being positive isn't just a way of thinking, being positive is a lifestyle choice that one must continually and objectively choose to make. Being positive may mean making some very difficult choices instead of taking the path of least resistance in life, but is also most times infinitely rewarding.
