Keeping a Positive Outlook For Better Living

Your life reflects your thoughts, mirroring your positive outlook or negative attitude. Of course, sometimes, challenges that are not your fault arise. However, your outlook determines how well you cope. If you think optimistically, you recognize the best in situations.

The opposite is true if you think negatively and focus on undesirable events. When you concentrate on difficult circumstances, you set your mind on a course of pessimism and find what you seek. However, negative thinking might be a habit you don’t recognize.

How Life Reflects Your State Of Mind

To discover whether changing your thoughts can improve your life, try the following exercise. Consider a challenge that bothers you for a few moments. Now write about it, taking into account how you feel. Your description shows your current way of thinking. You will quickly notice if your attitude is negative.

Next, ponder what events can teach you. Think about what you know now that you didn’t understand before. Also, write about how circumstances have shown you what you want. Identifying your desires will help you think constructively and alter your mood.

Finally, ignore unfavorable aspects of the situation and view circumstances from a positive angle. Write about how you’ve gained insight and strengthened your self-awareness and understanding of life.

At the end of the exercise, consider your experience. Did you find it helpful? Did your feelings shift closer to optimism? Did your mood change? Perhaps you feel more confident about managing now and view matters differently? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you can improve your life by adjusting your thoughts.

Optimizing Your Thoughts

You don’t need to try to stop pessimistic thinking. You just need to be optimistic. When you set your mind to contemplate agreeable topics, unwanted deliberation disappears. Practice often, and you will soon be accustomed to thinking positively. As a result, you will anticipate the feel-good factor that goes hand-in-hand with looking on the bright side. Such anticipation will encourage your mind to follow a similar train of thought in the future.

Think constructive, upbeat thoughts and life will reflect your newfound way of viewing circumstances, even in business. You will recognize opportunities for happiness and sail through challenging events, always coping no matter what happens in your environment.

Shoe Trends: How to Wear Riding Boots

If you’re ready to step out in style this fall, you’ll want one of the year’s hottest foot wear trends, the riding boot. Why are these boots such big news in the fashion world? Not only are they easy on they eyes, but they’re comfortable to boot. Confused about what to wear them with? Here’s how to wear those ultra comfortable and versatile riding boots.

Wear them with skinny pants.

The most basic, but still sleek and sexy way to wear riding boots is to slide them on over slim jeans in dark denim, or a pair of riding pants with a fall turtleneck or oxford shirt and one of the season’s other “must have” accessories, a thin belt. This look is appropriate for almost any casual outdoor function. Not only will you look chic and fashionable but your feet won’t feel the pinch. The flat heel on riding boots makes them one of the most comfy boots of all.

Wear them with dresses.

 Riding boots can add a whole new dimension to your favorite dress. While you can wear riding boots with a variety of dress types, keep the hem of the dress above the top of the boot, otherwise the look will be formless and unflattering. Try pairing riding boots with a shorter, wrap-around shirt dress for classic look. If you’re in great shape, wear riding boots with a shorter, form fitting knit dress and tights that match your boots. Try layering dresses by placing a sleeveless dress over a long sleeved dress, add a belt and a pair of riding boots for a super chic look. Layering is another key fall fashion trend.

Wear them with skirts

 Riding boots look chic and casual teamed with a skirt and matching tights. Generally shorter skirts look best with riding boots. Be sure you’re wearing tights that match your boots to avoid cutting the line of the outfit as well as giving the appearance of being shorter than you are. One fun idea is to wear riding boots with a saucy, pleated skirt and turtleneck. Hang an oversized handbag from your shoulder and you can welcome fall in style.

 When selecting riding boots choose a pair that fits snuggly against your leg. Riding boots are meant to be sleek and form fitting. They’re a forgiving look if your calves are somewhat less than perfect as they cover them in style. Don’t forget about wearing riding boots with leather and suede jackets for an ultra cool fall fashion look. If you can only choose a single pair of riding boots to add to your wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with dark brown or basic black. Pick up some matching tights and you have instant fall versatility. Have fun exploring the world in your riding boots this fall!
