My attitude shapes my experience.
I cultivate gratitude. I keep a journal to remind me to count my blessings. I give thanks for my health, my loved ones, and having a roof over my head.
I savor small pleasures. I celebrate hot coffee and quick naps.
I spend time outdoors. I stop to smell flowers and listen to birds sing. I eat my lunch in the park. Fresh air and green spaces cheer me up.
I socialize more. I surround myself with family and friends who love and care about me. I make workouts and errands more fun by sharing my activities with others. I turn off the TV and engage in conversation.
I enjoy the warm glow that comes from giving. I volunteer in my community and donate money to worthy causes. I help neighbors and coworkers. I do favors for strangers without expecting anything in return.
I treat myself with kindness and compassion. I repeat inspiring affirmations. I take care of my mental and physical health. I give myself credit for trying.
I focus on the things I can control. I reduce stress by accepting reality instead of fighting it. I understand my strengths and limitations. I devote my energy to overcoming setbacks and learning from experience.
I reframe challenges as opportunities. I use difficult times as a chance to learn and grow.
Today, I think happy thoughts. I feel confident and hopeful. I radiate positive energy.
