Celebrate Springtime by Improving Your Positivity
Spring is the time we think about flowers blooming and a new start. It’s also a good time to start a new habit - positive thinking. How often do you feel thankful for the good things in your life? Studies suggest that making a habit of noticing what’s going well in your life could have health benefits.
Create positive emotions by being thankful every day:
- Take a moment. Think about the positive things that happened during the day.
- Write it down in a journal. Make a habit of writing down things you’re grateful for. Try listing several things.
- Savor your experiences. Try to notice positive moments as they are happening.
- Relive the good times. Relive positive moments later by thinking about them or sharing them with others.
- Write to someone. Write a letter to someone you feel thankful toward. You don’t have to send it.
- Make a visit. Tell someone you’re grateful for them in person.
