FIVE STEPS TO A BETTER YOU
A LITTLE GRATITUDE GOES A LONG WAY
One thing we’ve learned over the years is that being grateful can literally change your life. Coming from a war torn country, we have learned how to appreciate the little things. Growing up in a first world country, it is easy to stress about the little things. I know it’s harder said than done, but start your day with gratitude. As soon as you open your eyes, make a mental note of all the things that you are so fortunate to have in your life versus thinking about everything that needs to be done, or worrying about everything you need or want. Also before you go to bed, think about all the positive things that made your day better, whether it was catching up with an old friend, or learning a new word (lol). All of these little positives will eventually add up and make you a happier person.
DISTANCE YOURSELF FROM NEGATIVE PEOPLE
Let’s face it, we all know/knew a person or persons in our life that makes us feel unhappy. Whether you know it or not, all company is not good company. Sometimes people can just drain your energy with negativity without knowing it. With that said, focus on those who do make you happy and figure out ways to continue nourishing those relationships. Because these are the people who will likely impact your life in a positive way. Give that power to the people who deserve it.
