Our generation was one of the first to be interested in the scientific study of some important questions related to wellbeing, such as: B. for what makes people happy. In fact, some conclusions drawn from such questions have changed the way we see the world. For example, we now know that having a positive attitude has a huge impact on our state of mind.
Now we know that happy people do not come from similar circumstances, but from a certain way of seeing the world. A positive attitude provokes a chain reaction of thoughts, feelings, and actions that lead to extraordinary results. Therefore, if we learn to have positive attitudes and optimistic thoughts, we will be able to enjoy our daily life more.
The basic principles of psychology tell us that each of us is responsible for our attitudes. This is why our generation enjoys a great advantage: because we know the power of our spirit, we can be much happier than our ancestors.

What attitudes are healthy for our minds?
A positive attitude that stems from good mental health can help achieve well-being. In addition, it offers great benefits for everyone: those who are relatively healthy to those who have more serious health problems, or those who suffer from disorders such as anxiety or depression.
Well, although we cannot always change our situation, we can try as hard as possible to be positive about it, depending on the qualities and limitations we have. We can’t do everything, but we can do everything in our power to reach our potential and be satisfied with ourselves. However, this will only work if we adopt and maintain a positive attitude.
The mental attitude is so important because it has positive and negative effects on our well-being. This is proven by a 10-year study by Professor Hans-Jürgen Eysenck from the University of Heidelberg (Germany) and his team. The results of this study have shown that our negative thinking habits can be more harmful than unhealthy physical behavior.
Keys to Promoting Healthy Habits
- Simplify. One of the best attitudes we can have is to keep our needs to a minimum. The more unnecessary things we need to be happy, the more it will cost us to enjoy our lives.
- Create relationships. In order to have a positive attitude, it is useful to build a close social network in which we can seek support and maintain relationships in times of need.
- Develop our creativity. This increases the neurons’ ability to adapt to new experiences and to learn.
- Sharpen our intellectual curiosity. People who are open to new experiences and have open-minded personalities tend to live longer and have better functioning immune and cardiovascular systems, according to some studies.
If you don’t like something, change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
Our generation has a positive attitude
As we can see, our generation has understood that happiness does not depend on an external circumstance, but is determined by our mental attitude. The way we see the world controls our lives. It is a hidden power that we all possess and that works 24 hours a day, in good times and bad. So it is very important that we know how to use this great power.
We humans are very similar, but small differences mean that we live life in very different ways. One of the most important differences between us is our attitude. Our point of reference doesn’t matter: if we have a positive attitude and constantly strive to do our best, we will eventually overcome our problems.
So having a positive attitude means asking ourselves how we can do something instead of saying what we can’t do. If we manage to develop this worldview, we will discover how quickly we can change our lives for the better.
Our attitude towards life determines the attitude towards us.
