Our generation was one of the first to be interested in the scientific study of important issues related to well-being. For example : what really makes people happy? In fact, some discoveries obtained from these types of questions have radically changed our interpretation of the world. Today we know for example the important power of our attitude on our moral state.
We know that happy people do not have common circumstances but rather particular way of seeing the world. Positive attitudes provoke a chain reaction of thoughts, events and actions that provoke extraordinary results. To do this, learning to be optimistic and to have a good mental hygiene can allow us to better enjoy our daily life.
The basic principles of psychology state that each of us is responsible for his attitudes. For this, people of our generation have a huge advantage. Knowing the power of our spirit, we can use it to be much happier than our ancestors.

What are the healthy attitudes for our mind?
Positive attitudes derived from correct mental hygiene help to achieve well-being. In addition, they provide many benefits to all those who feel relatively well, even those who have more serious difficulties with anxiety disorders or depression, for example.
Although we can not always act on our circumstances, there is something for which we all have control: strive as much as possible for the qualities and limitations we have. We can not do everything, but we can put all that is in us to get the maximum return and feel satisfied with ourselves. However, we will not succeed until we have adopted appropriate mental attitudes.
The mental attitude is so important that it can have both positive and negative effects on our health. This was highlighted in a 10-year research project at the University of Heidelberg under the direction of Professor Hans Eysenck. The results of this study revealed that general reasoning habits can hurt us more than unsound physical driving habits.
Keys to promote healthy habits
- Simplify. One of the best attitudes you can take is to reduce your needs to the maximum. The more superfluous things you need to be happy, the more difficult it will be for you to live positively.
- Create links. To have a healthy mind, it is important to create a close social network on which to rely in case of need and to maintain a link.
- Develop your creativity. This ability increases the ability of your neurons to adapt to new experiences or learning.
- Work on your intellectual curiosity. People who show open attitudes towards new experiences and who have an extroverted personality generally live longer and benefit from better functioning of the immune and cardiovascular system according to some studies.

Our generation has changed its attitude to life
As we can see, our generation has realized that happiness does not depend on any external condition, it is governed by our mental attitude. The way we see the world controls our lives. It's a secret power that we all have and that works 24 hours a day, for good or for bad. For that, it is very important to know how to take advantage of this force and to control it.
Human beings are very similar to each other, but the small differences that exist push to live life in a very different way. One of the most important differences between one and the other is based on our attitudes. No matter where we startif we have a positive and consistent attitude, and we give the best of ourselves, we will probably overcome our problems.
So, to have a positive mental attitude is to ask ourselves how we can do things instead of explaining what can not be done. In fact, if you manage to develop this way of seeing the world, you will discover how quickly your life can change positively.
