There is a lot of negativity around at the moment unfortunately. Mostly in politics to be honest as well. As 'hippie' as it sounds, when there is any kind of political drama that is flowing around the world, I'm convinced the negative energy moves with it. It almost can create a funny atmosphere where we can all feel a little anxious or even vulnerable.
To try and stay as positive as I can, if I'm feeling a bit low, these are the things I do regularly to give me a pick-me-up...
If any of my friends or loved ones (or even myself) is having a bit of a crappy day, I always make them tell me at least 5 great things that have happened in the day that they're grateful for. There are always five, in fact most of the time we hit the 6 and 7 mark.
If 5 or 6 great things happened to you in the day, then your day can't be that bad can it!
I remember reading a book a few years ago recommend to me called 'Flip-It'. It teaches you how to see the best in every situation. Even now when there is something that makes me feel in a bit of a funk, I always try and flip it and make it into a positive!
My favourite one is when it rains... Why not look at it in a way that we are so grateful of the rain. We're so lucky to have water nearby! It makes the grass greener, it makes everything grow better... there's always a positive for the rain. Buy yourself a beautiful umbrella and splash in the puddles! It really doesn't all have to be doom and gloom!
