Thankfulness

A while ago I realised I was starting to get ridiculously cranky and negative about things, so I’ve been trying to turn that around a bit. Lately whenever I catch myself feeling shitty about stuff, I mentally list three things to be thankful for. I try not to repeat stuff (at least not too close together), and I try to think the full sentence, “I’m thankful for…” for each thing, rather than just making a quick list. It seems to be helping so far. So if I seem slightly less cranky lately, that’s partly why.

PS. anyone who refers to this as a “life hack” will get to witness me rolling my eyes and/or miming sticking fingers down my throat, which is way better than the punch in the face that would previously have been my default response.
