Taking ten minutes every evening to focus on what is positive in your life and what you are grateful for has numerous benefits, research shows over and over. Of course this does not mean that all your troubles will vanish and that everything can be fixed with positive thinking. Not at all! But it is a way of focusing your attention on abundance instead of lack, in other words training your brain to be a little happier. To me personally, there is nothing better than putting all other media aside and just putting pen to paper. Have you ever tried feeling better after writing down your thoughts?
