•By deliberately practising the habit of remembering happy experiences, you train your mind. This training helps your mind to seek out and dwell on the positive, even during challenging times. This resilience becomes crucial in navigating life’s difficulties and maintaining hope and optimism.
•Remember, the next time you find yourself trapped in a negative loop, you have the power to make a different choice. Focus on past moments of joy and allow them to illuminate your path forward, fostering a more positive outlook.

•Go for a brisk walk, dance around the house, or engage in any activity that gets your body moving. Increased blood flow and the release of endorphins can rapidly improve your mood and shift your perspective.
•You’d be surprised at how quickly getting outside and moving around can lift the weight of negativity and leave you feeling lighter and energised.

•Whenever you feel negativity creeping in, grab that book you’ve been meaning to read. Make it a habit to always have a book on hand, a refuge for when life throws curveballs.
•Reading, whether fiction or non-fiction, not only distracts your mind from negativity but also offers valuable insights and fresh perspectives.

Whatever tip you choose to take, make an effort to follow it every time you notice your thoughts spiralling down. Reinforcing positive habits and escaping the pessimistic cycle requires consistency.

If you follow this approach consistently, you will soon discover that you are creating new, empowering habits that uplift and empower you.
