Understanding positive Thinking?
Positive thinking doesn’t mean that you keep your head in the sand and ignore life’s less pleasant situations. Positive thinking just means that you approach unpleasantness in a more positive and productive way. You think the best is going to happen, not the worst.
Positive thinking means to be optimistic and to take positive actions in positive and negative situations.Tweet
Hundreds of researches and studies proved and assured that productivity is related to our way of thinking. In simple words:
If you are a positive thinker means you are more productiveBy Mohamad Barada
Below are 5 scientifically proven reasons Why Positive Thinking increase productivity:
1. Boosts Energy
Happy people have more energy. When you think positive thoughts and you smile, it releases endorphins which give you more energy. More energy means you can get more done and therefore are more productive.
An article on Forbes Start Smiling: It Pays To Be Happy At Work quoted Jessica Pryce-Jones, author of Happiness at Work and CEO of iOpener when she said, “People who are happiest at work have 180% more energy than their least happy colleagues…Her results also showed the happiest employees taking 66% less sick leave than those who are least happy.”
MB Tip for you: Do you want to boost energy? Smile, Laugh, Laugh – Remember a lot of things that make you laugh, laugh more 😁…Do that for 10-15 minutes and let me know how do you feel now! (you can share your experience in the comment below 👇🏻)
2. Better Problem Solver
If you’re unhappy, you’ll be “less creative, less able to solve problems”.
Try to remember a day where you were unhappy or pessimistic: weren’t you all time focusing on the problem or the negative situation? Were you able to think properly ? Were you able to find solutions to your problems that day?
A research study by The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) found that when people were presented with a task, those that had seen a positive video before performing the task did a better job and were more open to solving problems than those that watched an angry or depressing video.
When you are a positive Thinker, you tend always to focus on solving the problem because you believe that every problem has a solution. This will open your mind to more possibilities and enhance your creativity and keeps you in the mood of a problem solver.
MB Tip for you: If you have a big problem and you want to solve it, Make a Pause (really try to take it seriously) take a real pause of the problem and try to put yourself in an extremely positive and happy mood. Stay relaxed and very happy for 30 minutes…Try to smile, a big smile on stupids things that you did when you were a kid…Remember the best time that you spent with the best people around you…Keep Smiling. Now go back to your problem and solve it!
3. Reduces Stress
It’s difficult to be productive when you’re stressed out. It’s hard to stay focused because you’re thinking about deadlines, problems, or an overwhelming amount of work that needs to be done in what seems to never be enough time.
An article in The Wall Street Journal titled Stress-Busting Smiles discusses how smiling has been proven to reduce stress. Stress clouds your mind and bogs you down, whereas thinking positive thoughts and smiling reduces stress, making it easier to focus and get things done.
4. Increases Motivation
Motivation is a proven tool to bring out the talent of a person. Having positive motivation is the best psychological approach. The person must always be motivated frequently, whether through rewards or a pat on the back, as this will boost their self-esteem and do better in what they do.

5. Increases the Team Spirit
A happy employee will boost the mood of his or her colleagues so it makes sense that “happy people are good for teams.” This is “particularly important when that person is engaged with customers, clients, patients or a work team.”
Being a positive thinker will help you to trust others and work with others in a more efficient and productive way.
The research study by NCBI additionally found that people that think positively have an easier time bonding with others and working in teams. People who think positively are more open to trusting others, and other research studies have also proven that smiling makes it easier for other people to trust you.
