People who do not think positively get depressed quickly. In order to attain the positive thinking, a person must recognize his uniqueness as a person. For most people if they say to themselves certain quotes, poems, ideas which inspire them and spur them into a positive action. Generally depressed people with a negative attitude, lymphoocytes that are the disease fighting cells in the body, respond less than the people with a positive outlook. Therefore it is necessary for an individual to use his sub-conscious mind through visual and verbal reinforcements to develop a positive outlook, which can have a profound impact in maintaining better health, overcoming challenges, and achieving levels of attainment. In order to have positive thinking one should aim high in life. All success happens twice first in his mind and then in reality. He should first create a mental picture of the attainment of what he desires and then be ready and willing to do what he needs to do, to achieve what he wants in life. By having this positive attitude, dedicated effort and application of the power of human conscious and sub conscious mind can do wonders.

Positive thinking has been proven to reduce stress, help people live longer, and improve your overall well-being and ability to cope. So if it is that simple, then why aren't we living in a society of total bliss and happiness? The answer is that no one, you nor I, wants to admit that they are negative. And if you can't admit that you are negative then how can you ever change your lifestyle to being positive? here are seven steps to help you turn negativity into positive thinking: Step 1: Admit You Are Negative The first step to changing your life is to admit that you are negative or that you have negative thoughts. Whether talking about a coworker behind his/her back or believing you "can't" do something; these contribute to a non-healthy lifestyle. Step 2: Be Determined to be Positive Once you've admitted you are negative, or at least have some negative tendencies, you can resolve to changing the way you think. Become conscious of your daily thoughts and when a negative thought enters your mind, quickly turn it around. Instead of "I don't think I can do that," think "I love a new challenge and will conquer this one" or "I can do this no matter how hard it is." Instead of "I'll do this later," think "By getting this done now I can have it accomplished." Eliminate words like "can't" from your vocabulary and replace them with "can". Start to say positive things about other people. Start to think positive things about other people. "Wow, that was really nice what he/she did." When presented the opportunity to comment on someone else, refrain from saying anything bad. Step 3: Remove Yourself From Negative Influences Your environment begins to reflect who you are after time. Thus if you have friends or coworkers you hang out with who are always griping about their job, boss, or life then begin to slowly weed out that group of people and seek out those who are positive and don't talk about others behind their back. When you replace a negative environment with a positive one, you make huge strides in improving your lifestyle. Step 4: Replace Cola with Water The healthiest beverage you can drink is water. And by replacing chemical and sugar-filled drinks with water, you will make massive improvements to your health. First of all, you are eliminating the sugar and caffeine that are so addicting, yet bad for overall health. Second, you are increasing your water intake. Chemical-free natural water will help improve your energy, eliminate toxins from your body, make your skin more healthy looking, and improve your mental performance. How can you not help but become more positive with such changes to your life?! Drink lots of water - it is the true "miracle vitamin". Step 5: Stop Watching the News Murder. Rape. Fraud. War. Daily news is often filled with nothing but negative stories and when you make reading such material a part of your daily lifestyle, you begin to be directly affected by that environmental factor. If you still need a dose of news, then tune into a station or site that features "Good News". Step 6: Learn to Meditate Meditating allows you to clear your mind, lower stress, become more focused, and stay positive. It's a very positive and powerful medium. By taking just 15 minutes a day to meditate, you'll find yourself handling time and stress much better. You'll also gain a more positive outlook on life. Step 7: Spread Your Positiveness to Others Put your new positive thinking lifestyle into action. Take time out to write down the top 10 things you love about your partner and give that list to him/her. When you experience good customer service, take time to write a note or email expressing your gratitude. Practice spreading your positiveness to others and it will grow.

It is known as auto suggestion, if you think that you are going to have headache - you will but if you think you are getting better then you will. It is the power of mind over body - even in day to day life positive thinking makes good things happen.

thinking positively alone cannot alleviate your depressive state of affairs, for how long anyone can be positive in attitude without sorting out problems positively /
