“An abundance mentality springs from internal security, not from external rankings, comparisons, opinion, possessions, or associations.” – Stephen Covey, author
The term abundance mindset was first coined by Covey in his 1989 best-seller, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. A person with an abundance mindset focuses on the positive aspects of life rather than the negative ones. As one of the leading retirement homes in Bangalore, we share with you a few tips to develop an abundance mindset:
- Train your brain to notice the good: Practising mindfulness can help you notice positive things around you. When faced with challenging situations, focus on the opportunities. Initially, you will have to make a conscious effort to shift your thoughts from the negative aspects of the situations. However, with time and practise, it will become a habit. There are many benefits of positive thinking – it not only helps you feel good about yourself but also reduces stress, anxiety, and depression.
- Incorporate gratitude into your daily life: Practising gratitude can add positivity to your life. According to a study, practising gratitude is associated with optimism. It may help in reducing depression and anxiety. Maintain a daily gratitude journal to keep track of the good things in your life. Make it a practice to write down 5 things you are grateful for each day. You can also use gratitude apps for jotting down positive things throughout the day.
- Keep your surroundings clean: This may not seem to be the most obvious thing to do when it comes to cultivating feelings of abundance. However, decluttering your home not only keeps your house clean, it also brings clarity in your thinking. As you remove the excess and unwanted things in your life, you focus on the most important things in your life.
- Do more of what you love: Doing what you love will make you happy. Many people in their 40s and 50s work on things they are good at but they may not enjoy it fully. Retirement presents an ideal opportunity to those who want to nurture their passions.
