The Simple Practice for Feeling Better

What you focus on – what you keep thinking about, grows.

It becomes your experience, your life.

Focus on something good.

Practice gratitude.

Begin your day – even before you get out of bed – with gratitude.

Why? Because your conscious brain can only focus on one thought at a time.

Make it a good thought.

“Thank you for this day. I am grateful to be alive.

Thank you for my family, friends, and the people I spend time with today.

They are all gifts to me. I appreciate them all. I will do my best to accept each one, as they are.”

“I especially appreciate the people I love, and those who love me.

Many bring me love, joy, laughter – and peace.”

“Thank you also for those who challenge me today. They are my “teachers.”

They teach me to be more patient, kind, calm and caring.

They help me become a better version of myself as I learn to control my emotions.

This sets me free to live the life I deserve – positive, happy, healthy, peaceful, and successful.”

Keep positive, grateful thoughts running in your mind all day to keep you away from negative.

Then focus on what you want today and be grateful in advance for it.

“Thank you especially for the successful meetings and all the changes that happen today.

I know each change or “upset” can bring something even better to me. I will expect the best.”

Start now. Say, “I am so grateful for…,” “Thank you for…” and keep adding to your gratitude list.

Write it down, say it out loud and talk to others about what is GOOD in your life.

Switch your focus (to gratitude), shift your energy (to positive), change everything (life is good).

Practice gratitude.

Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays.

I wish you peace.
