How to Think Positive Through Tough Times

This could be the most pressing issue of our times: staying positive in the face of tough times. With all the animosity, vitriol, and cantankerous behavior nowadays, it’s so critical to learning how to keep your cool. Tube Dude would like to help you stay calm, and remain positive even when the going gets tough seemingly everywhere.

Devise Ways to Turn Negativity On Its Head

Every malady has a cure and every evil has its inverse good. Whenever you find something truly gnawing at your peace, that’s usually a sign that you need to cultivate its opposite.

Do you struggle with anger? Then it may be time to practice meekness, patience, and gentleness. Are you worried about pandemic contagion? Then that could be a call to bolster your immune system.

Negativity is a telltale sign that some important virtue is missing in your life. Find out what that is, hone it, and watch the negativity melt right off of you.

Shut Off All The Noise

It’s hard to stay positive with the incessant blast of bad news. Hopefully, you can see why it’s obvious to limit your exposure. There are, however, other sources of noise pollution. Do you listen to bad music or just too much of it? Consider dialing it back a little and letting your mind rest with some tranquil silence.

Do Something Fun

Florida has tons of nice things to do. Why not visit Everglades National Park or hike the Florida Trail? Nature is fun, gets you away from the media, gives you many ways to get exercise, and it’s hard to relax when everything around you looks gorgeous.
