A simple practice that has worked very well for me over the years and may work well for you: There’s lot of bad news out there from shootings, to just about anything else you can imagine. Every time you hear a bad news story, immediately think of something you’re thankful for. And over time, apply this not only to bad news stories but to every time you hear anything even remotely negative in any form. For overachievers, think of two positive things for every negative one you hear. This isn’t denial that bad things happen to good people. It’s training your mind to think correctly on abundance and gratitude. Just a thought.
