Creating a Positive Social Media Feed Promotes Adding Positivity to Your Life
You don’t have to scrap your social media accounts to begin adding positivity to your life. Change your follow settings for accounts you want to visit occasionally, but don’t want constant reminders of drama and sadness. -I am part of a bunch of support groups, but I do not have them on my Facebook feed so I can keep my scrolling more positive.-
Un-follow family and friends that promote negativity.
I don’t follow everyone I know, even if we are family or friends. By knowing everything they do, I am denying myself the surprise of their story when we are together. I only follow people I cannot get together with often and that helps me achieve my goal of adding positivity to my life.
Find some fun pages to follow.
When I am on social media, they fill my screen with cute animals, funny jokes, and inspiration. There are some great joke groups and cute animal pages. If you surround yourself with depression and anxiety all the time, that is how you are going to start feel. So start surrounding yourself with pages that inspire positive thinking, happiness, and help you feel good.

Creating Safe Spaces to Decompress from Anxiety
You are a product of your environment. You want a solid foundation to help you create positive thinking habits. And that making your home a haven will begin adding positivity to your life. You’ll feel stress melt away in your safe space.
I spent years hating my home. My mood was so low because I hated being in my home. We live the life of the military, so we get what they give us. -Our choice is whether to live in a military house with the benefits of saving on utility costs, trash service, and maintenance, or buy a home and take a huge risk that we can’t sell that house at moving time.-
And of course I spend most of my time here. I had this negative mindset that this wasn’t my house, so I couldn’t make it my own. I couldn’t love a house that I didn’t pick. I was very wrong!
So I slowly started changing my environment. And it worked! I started loving being home. I was more relaxed. I was sleeping better. And my marriage improved. I was no longer focused on all the bad, but started seeing the positive again. By creating a space that I loved, I was helping my brain engage in positive thinking.
This is the book that helped me love my home again and made it into a safe space so I could begin adding positivity to my life.
With Love, Me is going to touch on creating safe spaces later, but you can get started right now! Trust me, you’re going to want to have a space that promotes adding positivity to your life.
- Declutter things that cause you stress.
- Add soothing colors and fabrics.
- Add things that clean easily so you don’t add excess stress to your routine.
- Only have items in your home that bring you happiness.
- Instead of having multiple items that do one job, get one item that does multiple jobs to save space!

Give Yourself Time for Self Care
Modern day lives are so busy now. We have high stress jobs. We have kids at home that need us. Pets that want attention and need care. Bills need to be paid. Maintenance on home and vehicles. Homes that need cleaning. Social activities. And it goes on…
-Anyone else feel like they need a break just from reading about life’s stresses?-
Self care is more than just bubble baths though. It’s taking the time for adding positivity to your life.
- It’s having Fun Hobbies that help promote positive mental health.
- It’s breaking down your goals into achievable steps to avoid overwhelming emotions and procrastination.
- It’s making time for you daily!
- It’s an at home date night to reconnect with your significant other.
- It’s eating to fuel your body and not your emotions.
- It’s conquering feeling guilty and selfish when you spend time and money on yourself.
- It’s about treating yourself with kindness so you can give your best to the world!
- It’s about learning to love yourself so the world can love the real you!
- It’s taking a break to play games with your kids, even when you have chores to do.
- It’s not piling on stress related tasks on your to-do list. But also adding in some fun!
And let me tell you girl, YOU NEED IT!
You cannot expect to give your best if you are not treating yourself well. You can’t pour from an empty cup.

This is all so true. I try my best to keep the negative nellies out – I’ve had to really distance myself from certain people that are super draining. I had a friend I tried to help for years, but I have despaired of them ever changing. And found that they only ever contacted me to ask for help. And that social media aspect is very on point – negative posts and comments can drag your mood down so quickly.
Environment is such a big factor. There are so many things you can do in your home to create a safe an uplifting space. And there are so many ways to make changes in a temporary home. It’s great to ‘hear’ that you found a way to uplift your military home life.
