Be Grateful 

  • As I focus on all that I have to be grateful I become more content.
  • Keep gratitude journal and add to it weekly.
  • List five things each day that you are grateful for on a post-it note and then stick it on your computer, look at it throughout the day and pause for gratitude breaks.
  • Volunteer. Giving of our time and talents keep us grateful.

Develop Close Relationships

  • Spend time weekly with your closest family and friends.
  • Be real with the people who love you most.
  • Be available for others – Give of yourself.

Accept that Life is a Process 

  • Journal. Keep track of progress and celebrate successes.
  • Give yourself permission to have a bad day. Go home, put on your pjs and have a good cry. It’s okay!
  • Ask for help when you need it. Asking for help and being able to receive it is a good thing.

Get Connected Spiritually

  • Pray.
  • Take quiet time each day.
  • Go to church, synagogue or enjoy the awesomeness of nature.

Celebrate Your Self and Your Life 

  • Throw a party – truly celebrate your next accomplishment!
  • Share your successes and failures with others.
  • Do something just because you deserve it.
