To change how you feel when life gets you down, follow these practices:

Finding things to be grateful for helps you stop thinking negatively. When you’re feeling angry, frustrated, or sad, make a list of things you’re grateful for. It can help you let go of your current situation and move on.

Gratitude is a powerful tool. Many people use a gratitude journal to note their blessings and cite what’s going well in their lives. Over time, you create a powerful record of all the good things that have happened to you.

Take a few moments each morning to think about what is good in your life. Do this to set the tone for the day and focus on what you’re grateful for.

Questions are another way to reframe your thoughts. For example, “What’s good about my life right now?” or “What can I appreciate today?” or “Whose love am I grateful for?” I like self-reflection questions that I can ask Holy Spirit. There are three every day in the Live LIGHT Gratitude Journal

Negative thoughts can ruin your happiness. It’s hard to be positive if you always look at the negative things happening around you. But there are so many great things that exist in the world! A child’s laugh, the sunset, and a cool breeze on a hot day. These small things can be just as important as your job and other important aspects of your life. A negativity fast can help you break free of negativity.

You can increase your gratitude by doing something kind for someone else. This is a great way to feel more grateful. You can do this by doing a kindness for a stranger or a friend you haven’t seen in a while. Do something unexpected and help someone out. They will appreciate it, and you will feel grateful as well!

Do your part in making the world a better place. Make one small act of generosity each day. Look for opportunities to help others. They will be grateful, and you’ll feel good about yourself. Little simple gestures change lives daily.

Why not take a photo of the things you’re grateful for? It’s not only a great way to express your thankfulness, but it can also spread that positivity to others online.

There are so many ways to express gratitude, but if you’re not the kind of person who likes to write down what they’re thankful for or write a gratitude journal, try keeping short notes about gratitude in a jar! When you need a pick-me-up, just reach into the jar and read one of the notes. As the year draws to a close or a have a day you need encouragement, reflect on your gratitude notes. They will remind you of all the good things that happened to you throughout the year.

Some days are hard, but if you keep a positive attitude, you’ll be able to overcome any obstacles in your way. Practising gratitude on a regular basis is a great tool for keeping a positive attitude, no matter how hard life gets.
