All the human actions ~ breathing,sleeping,eating,drinking,bathing,using the toilet,talking,exercising,making love -everything- that humans do can be summed up as actions that contribute to Dharma.

Is this correct?

If the motivation or attitude is selfless & beneficent - yes; if not, then no. See chapter 11 of the Avatamsaka Sutra for examples of good motivation applied to ordinary actions.

If I do my actions with right attitude and right mind I can create positive karma. Is this correct in Buddhist thought?

What if its just human nature.
