Reduce or eliminate negativity and regrets – news, relationships. Vow to read and view mostly positive things (comedy, open education courses, listen to positive talk radio shows like http://BlogTalkRadio.com/consciousdiscussions archives and sites like Ted.com)
Reach out to people and begin expressing gratitude for some action or feeling they once gave you. Take a moment to list the things you really appreciate about the people around you, this will make the interactions easier for you. Just mention one or two things at a time to them, it is more effectual that way.
Go through your personal and business address and contact lists and make a goal to tell each one of them something positive via email, text, mail, in person. Work this into your daily encounters - even if you are complementing a stranger's shoes, their smile, their attitude or service.
List at least 5 different things you really feel grateful for upon waking up in the morning and again another list of 5 things you are grateful for in the evening. This is a great habit for parents to get into as well – telling their children positive feedback or information in the morning and evening.
These activities aide better sleep patterns, attitude, positive emotions, increased awareness and increased gratitude.
