Always strive to be in a state of mind where you feel gratitude for what you have in life. There are many people who compare their lives to people who are in better positions than them and this makes them depressed and have moments in their life where they think about what they don’t have.
Always think about what you do have rather than what you don’t have. This will allow you to feel thankful for what God has given you in life and will mean that you are happy regardless of how much money you have or how high of a reputation you have. These are materialistic things and we should all strive to focus on being happy rather than trying to please everybody else.
When something good happens in your life, remember it and most importantly, remember the details. Make sure you think back on the obstacles that were stopping you from achieving that goal and you still reached it. As humans, we tend to think about our flaws and the bad situations in our lives rather than our accomplishments and what amazing things we have done.
Everyone has a place or does something which they enjoy and they take comfort in. Whenever you feel low, have the willpower to go to that place or to go do that one thing which makes you happy. Maybe it’s a certain type of food which cheers you up. Whatever it is, go get it and this will definitely help.
Spend time with loved ones and appreciate your support network. No matter how big or small it may be, we all have a support network which we can just go to even in the worst of times.
Be grateful for the little things in life. A lot of people wait for a big moment to happen and they post it everywhere on social media and the next thing you know, they’re back to feeling low again. If you feel thankful for the little things in your day to day life, then how can you feel low? Yesterday, on my way back home from work, I was on the bus and I saw a wheelchair user come on. That alone made me feel grateful of the fact that I can walk.
A lot of people have restrictions in life and they still are grateful for what they’re blessed with. So you should be too! Always be grateful and thankful and thank God always for the position you are in.
