Be positive about life.
OK. You can’t be positive 100% of the time. Life does have its knockbacks sometimes. Also, don’t hanker for things that are, for the most part, out of reach. Sure aim big, but dream small steps to get there. You can’t be a millionaire overnight (unless you win the lottery, and the odds are millions to one).
Personally, I get great pleasure out of the small things. A day off work tomorrow. Time with my wife. Looking forward to a weekend away. Stopping by the pub on the way home. Losing two pounds this week. Eating healthy for three days in a row. Finishing overdue tasks. Get my drift? Whatever little things please you. Bask in it, in your own head if you like.
If things are making you unhappy, make small changes. You can’t usually change everything overnight. It all becomes overwhelming and then you get stressed again. You can take time enjoying small changes, and tiny events. Make a cup of tea or coffee and take a walk around the yard for five minutes. No yard? Walk around the block (perhaps without the cuppa).
Just a few minutes to unwind can help make all the difference!
