Remind Yourself About What's Going Right
If you're plagued by negative thoughts, find a quiet place, grab a pen and paper and make a list of answers to this question:
What do I have to be grateful for in my life?
Start your list with the most obvious things, your health and family.
Do you have a car? A home? Clothes on your back? Food on the table?
- You don't have to have the fanciest or the most expensive items for you to be grateful.
A used car in good condition will get you to work just as easily as a brand new car.
You don’t own a villa and rent an apartment, but at you have roof above your head to feel secure.
- Don't forget to give thanks for the small things in life, such as finding the car keys in time to get to work. For me it’s seeing a smile in another person.
You can also try to sit quietly in a room and meditate on your life and things you want to improve on.
Appreciating what you already have in life will free you to make the changes you desire.
