5 Simple Ways to Develop a Positive Attitude (for Teens & Young Adults)

Your attitude is 100% of your life.

If this sounds weird, let's do some simple math.

In alphabetical order, let's check the alphabet according to their numbers.

A = 1

T = 20

T = 20

I = 9

T = 20

U = 21

D = 4

E = 5

When we add the numbers, we'll have:


1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100

This sums up to tell us that attitude is everything. Keeping a positive attitude can be difficult, especially during challenges. But when you stay positive, you can maintain better health, overcome your challenges and achieve your goals.

Whenever a negative thought stays crawling in, change it to a positive thought. And If you are struggling to build a positive attitude, especially as a teen or young adult. Make sure to read this post to the end.

In this post, I'll be revealing 5 simple steps to develop a positive attitude.

Let's start

1. Have a positive self-talk

Self-talk is your inner voice. It is the way you talk to yourself. Self-talk can be positive or negative. Negative self-talk brings bad vibes and prevents you from reaching your potential. While positive self-talk boosts your confidence and self-esteem, improves your health, and helps you reach your potential.

Always look on the bright side of things. Think good about yourself. Do not dwell on the negative sides of things. Rather focus your energy on the good things no matter how small they look.

2. Practice gratitude

According to Havard Health, "Gratitude helps people feel more emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships".

Appreciate everything. Be grateful for the small things. Every day, think of three things you are grateful for.

3. Always have a good laugh
