For some, as the holidays approach, stress levels can rise, and bad days can be inevitable. There are days that leave you longing for retreat under a blanket fort.
While bad days can seem overwhelming, there is a quick fix that can provide respite from the passing chaos.
Everyone has different blessings. They may be similar to someone else's, but if they're not shared, and you're reading someone else's gratitude list, you could be sucked down the comparison rabbit hole.
Don't. Go. There.
If your life really is not going as you had planned right now, a gratitude list may be hard to come by, but start at ground zero.
If you're reading this, for example, you're already blessed with technology that many people around the world cannot access. Whether you see technology as a blessing, or a curse, or a blend of both, is up to you. Nevertheless, it's there.
Don't save the gratitude for the bad days. Start or end each day with thankfulness.
It doesn't take long, and once you realize and give thanks for what you do have, it can provide hope and inspiration for brighter days to come.
So, go for it.
You have the bad day fix.
And pass it on.
