Its not as easy as it sounds. We’ve all had the good intentions of being more positive and not allowing negative influences to clog up our lives, minds and thought process. I’ve been here so many times and I get angry with myself when I don’t serenely sail through each day, smiling at the challenges that crop up and dealing with them in a calm manner.
But just by changing your mindset when faced with a difficult circumstance you will often find that you are much more able to deal with whatever life is throwing at you. So instead of blowing your stack when you’re stuck in a traffic jam, or a queue in the supermarket, challenge yourself to deal with the situation in a different way. How you do that will depend upon who you are, what the situation actually is, and how quickly you can change your reaction. But it is doable, and it does make a real difference. The trick is remembering to do it.
