Life is all about perspective

It’s hard to imagine that something good can come out of a bad situation. When life gives us lemons, sometimes we just don’t want to make lemonade. Even though it may be tough, it’s important to let go of the idea that things should have happened differently. Next time you are having a bad day, take a beat to look at the bigger picture and find something positive to think about. Find small ways to celebrate life every day to bring more positivity into your world. A great way to do this is by thinking about all of the things you feel grateful for. Begin by saying thank you with the following tips:

  • Thank someone who supports you.
    Some people are here for you no matter what. Think about one person who is always ready to help you when you need it.
  • Thank your body.
    Instead of thinking about what your body can’t do, think about all that it CAN do. Your body performs amazing work all day, so take a minute to be content about yours.
  • Thank your food.
    The food on your plate made it there thanks to the effort of many different people. The goodness of food that comes directly from mother nature not only fills your stomach well, it also provides better emotional energy.
  • Thank yourself.
    It’s easy to be your own critic. Take a moment to reflect on everything you are capable of.

Be creative as you think of ways to change the way you view each day. Please keep in mind that if your stress is beginning to affect your daily life, it’s important to seek help by contacting your primary care provider or a qualified health professional.
