We can train our brains to look for the positive, even in stressful situations.
Start by identifying things that fill you with anger, bitterness, envy or judgment. Then find comparative things in your own life that bring you joy or fill you with pride and consider how you have been blessed. It may take a few tries, but even if you fail at first, don’t give up.
Say thank you for the small things, and mean it. We have been taught from childhood to show our verbal gratitude but how often do we mean it. Practice saying thank you often and with sincerity.
Write a daily gratitude list with up to five things you really appreciate. This helps you focus your mind and turn away from the negativity of the daily grind such as stress at work, toxic relationships, personal obligations
