I'm having a hard time being grateful for the blessed life I live.
I have my twisty stuff and my wobbles, sure, but I really have no cause to grumble.
I feel like I need to train my brain to focus on the sparkles instead of the dust. I'm just not sure how to go about doing that.
I've tried meditation but I find forced relaxation extremely stressful. I keep a gratitude journal which I find massively helpful - while I'm writing or reading it. I need to figure out how to unconsciously steer my mind towards the happier side of things.
How do you stop yourself from reacting to challenging situations with immediate anxiety and stress?
