3 Tips for Positivity in Your Friendships

Growing up brings a lot of changes, and even for the best of us, negative emotions can creep in. This is why having a supportive girl group to support you through this growing phase is necessary. Your squad can be your cheerleaders who will hold your hand through the journey of adolescence. They, too, might also be experiencing the same issues you’re having—and it’s good that you’re communicating openly and working together to squash these negative feelings away. Speaking of squashing these negs away, here’s a handy 3-step guide that you can put in your toolkit to cultivate positivity in your friendships. Read on!

1. Get emotional (in a good way).

Nowadays, talking about your emotions is more encouraged and is a normal thing to do. But you’d be surprised how many girls still get shy when talking about their feelings. Start normalizing these talks in your friendships by being the first to open up and encourage your girls to do the same! When it comes to it, our emotions are a natural part of growing up (and life, in general!), and there should be no shame there.

2. Practice mindfulness.

Mindfulness is paying full attention to something, and it’s achieved when one is in touch with their emotions. This practice is also commonly used to combat stress or anxiety—and you and your squad could benefit from this, too! Start by seeking out literature on mindfulness like books or podcasts, and share them with the squad. Sooner or later, you’ll begin adopting these techniques in your own life. Let your mantra be, “Mindfulness is self-care!”

3. Encourage healthy habits.

Be the change you want to see in your own friend group! Show them how fostering healthy habits can make a difference in their lives. You may share the care through friendly reminders and gentle check-ins whenever you know they’re down in the dumps. You could also bring the encouragement to the next level by scheduling a day of exciting physical activities or practicing mindfulness. Instead of commuting to a cafe, invite your friends to walk there instead. You can even make it a squad challenge on who can reach 10K steps daily the fastest! If you’re an outdoorsy bunch, hike to an IG-worthy spot near your area and reconnect with your pals over nature. #SquadGoals!

For a holistic healthy barkada, encourage them to take care of their feminine health by practicing good hygiene down there, regularly visiting their OB-GYN, and including feminine care products in their routine that understands every girl’s needs, like pH Care feminine products! pH Care has a ph level of 5 that makes it safe and gentle for daily use and has pH Care OdorProtech(TM) making you odor-free all day.

There you have it, besties. We know that practicing positivity with your squad is no easy task because you all have different lives and stressors. At the end of the day, though, being their friend creates such an impact on them so if you’re cultivating positivity in your own way, chances are it will also rub off on them. Like magic! Growing up is already hard enough as it is and a supportive, healthy, positive, and mindful squad is what everyone needs to grow through this period with ease. Hopefully, these 3 tips will inspire you to start the change and share the care within your squad. Pop off, mga ate!
