With mental health awareness week coming to an end, I though i would share one of my top tips for having a more positive mindset. Especially during these uncertain times.
Every evening before you go to bed, write down 3 things you are grateful for, it could be something that happened that day or something that happened in the past. I know it can be hard to get into the habit of doing this, so set a reminder on your phone. Trying sticking to it for 3weeks and see how you feel, it will only take 5minutes! It will definitely be worth it!
This is something you could do on your own or as a family. Getting your kids to start a gratitude journal is a great way to get them into the habit of focusing on the positive things in their lives. Research shows that gratitude is strongly connected to greater happiness. Gratitude journals can also help you feel less stress and calm you before you go to sleep.
Get started today - you will be so grateful that you did!
