It’s quite easy to train yourself to have an attitude of gratitude. Adding small practices to your day and becoming more aware of your thoughts can help you retrain your brain to have a more positive mindset.

Put it into practice

Put it into practice

There will be days where it’s harder to find things to be thankful for, and that’s fine! Accept that you’re feeling low and use that day to focus on smaller things, eg. a cup of coffee or the weather, rather than the bigger things.
