I am new to this and this is my first post ever so I apologise if I don't do this right. But I just wanted to share something that I do to try find positives in my day.
So almost everyday I try to come up with 3 things I am grateful for that day. It can be the smallest of things or a big accomplishment, it really doesn't matter what it is as long as it was something that you were grateful for. On good and bad (almost needed more on bad days!) I will always text one of my really close friends my 3 things or just simply write them down. For example, today I am grateful for tea, I am grateful for the pretty pink sunset, and I am grateful that my doctor was really nice to me this morning.
Another thing I sometimes do, but so far I have only managed it on days where I am feeling a bit more positive, is use something called the GLAD technique that I found online. I will write down in a notebook something I am Grateful for, something I have Learned, something I have Achieved, and something that I Delighted in (something that makes you smile or feel pleasure) that day. I need to try get into a better routine of doing it but so far I only manage it when I can. But by writing both of these types of strategies down it means that when I am having a particularly low day I can go back and read what I have written down on previous days about what I am grateful for or what I managed to achieve and often it actually can help.
Anyways just thought others might like to try it out sometime! You can always send me your 3 things a day if you wish! I love hearing what other people come up with
Sending big love and hugs to everyone! xxx
