Make the attitude long-term by trying out these ideas.
1. Compile a list of everything you are grateful for. I mean everything, from the air you breathe to the camera on your cell phone. Then whenever you feel sad or angry read the list. Actually don’t limit it to those times, read it everyday if you can.
2. Send a letter or a thank you note to someone that you feel you don’t appreciate enough. I think letters are more touching than e-mails or Facebook but you know best.
3. Take time to feel awe and wonder at the world. See the beauty in your surroundings. It doesn’t take long and the shift in your mood will be magical.
