Write them down on a piece of paper and stick on your fridge. you can even do some prep work during the weekends to keep yourself relaxed on work days.
Do the Thanksgiving ritual everyday:
On the day of Thanksgiving, before eating, it is a ritual to go around the table and say what you are thankful for. You could do this every night before your dinner. Being thankful for the smallest things is the best way to stay positive in every situation.
You can meditate by yourself or with your family. Take out just 5 minutes from each day and sit in silence and observe your breathe. Reflect on your day, reflect on all the thoughts you had during the day and discard the ones you don’t like.
