10 Proven Ways To Help You Be More Positive

3. Lack of sleep affects positive thinking

An adequate amount of sleep is essential for good health and general well-being. Ensuring you have enough sleep can help improve mental health as well as protect against physical health issues. Sleep deficiency over time can lead to an increased risk of chronic health issues. It can affect how you think, react and communicate with others. A study was conducted by the University of Basel on how sleep duration affected teenagers’ academic achievements, and positive outlook on life.[3] Sleeping less than the recommended 8 hours showed signs of more tiredness and lower self-discipline, and it also showed they had a much less positive attitude.

What to do: Try to get a minimum of 8 hours, choose a time for bed and stick to it. If you are unable to sleep, meditate, and if you exercise, try not to exercise within 4 hours of your sleeping time.
