Approaching your day by being thankful is something we always hear about but rarely apply. It’s such an easy tweak to your mindset but gets lost in your daily stressors and struggles. By being thankful more often, you will notice your mental health improving. But you may ask, why be thankful when I have so many bad things happening to me? And I’ll reply, maybe these “bad things” are happening so you can be more thankful for what you do have in the first place! Life is not always smooth-sailing; the downs that follow the ups are necessary to build up your character and increase your wisdom, but the process does become smoother when you are consistently thankful for what you have.
