Keep a Gratitude Journal
Keeping a gratitude journal can be a great reminder of the positive things in our life. Write down things that you are happy about or blessed with and don’t be afraid to keep it simple.

Now, rinse and repeat all week and see how your focus slowly starts to change from the negative to the positive. At the end of each week read through your journal to be reminded of just how blessed you really are. Try it and report back how well it worked for your if you’d like 🙂
Use Positive Words instead of Negative Words to describe your life
Words are powerful, despite this old saying.
“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me”
The simple truth of the matter is that words can, and do hurt. Often our own thoughts can weigh and beat down on us without us even realizing the impact it has to our life or the lives of those closest to us. So try this instead…
Whatever things are true,
Whatever things are noble,
Whatever things are right,
Whatever things are pure,
Whatever things are lovely,
Whatever things are of a good report,
If there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise,
Dwell on these things.
