Today is the last day of March and the entire month was Optimism Month. To lead into April, it was a good thing to call attention to Optimism again. It doesn’t hurt to have optimism every month so start your next month with optimism and carry into each month.
National Optimism Month was created to encourage people to boost their optimism. It is a national event, which takes place every year in March. It's a perfect time to get rid of negative or intruding bad thoughts. Research proves optimists achieve better health, greater prosperity and more happiness than pessimists.
Optimism is an outlook on life, such that one maintains a view of the world as a positive place. Optimism strongly correlates with high self-esteem, psychological well-being and physical and mental health. Optimism is correlated with better immune systems in healthy people. So, what are you waiting for to begin acting like an optimist yourself!
So how do you get an optimistic attitude? Cleanse your cranium, and all those negative thoughts that dwell within it! Sometimes we can't help it. Insecurities and doubt weigh on us from time to time, but it's up to us to cast away those dingy demons in our heads. To gain optimism, try this exercise: when problems arise in your life, focus immediately on finding a solution. Negative people would spend countless hours complaining, wallowing in self-pity and nursing their anger at the situation. Optimistic people, on the other hand, focus on fixing the problem and when it's been taken care of, they move on. No time for negative thoughts, complaining or feeling sorry for yourself!
Use this next month to practice optimism and turn optimism into a delightful, permanent habit every month.
Optimism is needed to pursue dreams. Children have dreams and so often loose them because of the unfortunate turn of events that happen to them and their families as they are growing up. Dreams For Kids empowers at-risk youth and those with disabilities through dynamic leadership programs and life-changing activities that inspire them to fearlessly pursue their dreams and compassionately change the world.
Dreams For Kids’ vision is to unite children of disability, race, religion, and socio-economic background and inspire them to realize their full potential and serve as active members of their communities and citizens of the world. At the core of their programming is the empowerment of youth who live in poverty and those with disabilities. The heart of the approach is reminding each young person they have something to give, and then giving them opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others. To break down the barriers of segregation, embrace the abilities and potential of an isolated population, and empower them by their paying it forward in such a way, which changes their communities and transforms their lives.
