You may have heard about a growing movement called “mindful living” or “practicing gratitude”. The idea behind it is that by focusing on the good or pleasurable things in your life and not missing out on small joys you will be in a better position to cope with any negative events that occur. Practicing gratitude won’t stop negative events from occurring, but it can help us from over-thinking them and giving them more focus and attention than they deserve. In this way you can become resilient to negative events without them impacting your day to day life. It can be hard to change the habits of a lifetime so here are some affordable ways to celebrate everyday to get you started!

Wear colour- even a colourful scarf or socks can bring a sparkle to your mood.

Write down the things that made you smile today- doing this before bed can help you clear your mind before sleep and finish the day in a positive way
