Appreciating The Small Things In Life
Sometimes when we are feeling stressed or demotivated, it can be hard to stay positive but appreciating the small things in life can really improve your mood! Things such as food/drink, music, interactions with friends/family, etc. are great examples of everyday things that we often don’t appreciate enough!
Start a Journal or Daily Photo Library
Journals are a great way to track your daily mood, habits, etc. and you can be creative with a journal! I’m really liking the app BeReal at the moment because it gives you random times to capture what you are doing and it shows your memories so you can look back on each day!
Set Aside Time In The Morning Or Evening To Practice Gratitude
These are the best times to practice gratitude because they are usually the quietest times in the day! Practicing gratitude in the morning gets you in a positive mindset for the day and practicing gratitude in the evening helps you to relax! You only need 5 minutes in your day to practice gratitude and it can be so beneficial!
Reflect On Your Achievements & Challenges
Reflecting on your achievements (no matter how big or small) helps you feel proud of yourself and reflecting on your challenges can help you overcome them! What I like to do just before I go to bed is reflect on my day and what has happened!
