When You are Feeling Down...
If you are feeling the effects of today's economy (downsized job, financial crunch, foreclosed home) you can easily start to focus on everything that is going wrong in the world and in your life instead of things that are going right.

Count Your Blessings
When you focus on the negative things that are going on in your world, it disturbs your inner peace and joy because negative thoughts makes you feel down instead of joyful. The next time you start to focus on the negativity and you start to feel down you should shift your focus and start focusing on positive thoughts . The best remedy for feeling down is, START COUNTING YOUR BLESSINGS


Exercise:

1. Make a list of all the things that you are thankful for. For example: you are thankful for your eyes, for two legs, for your right mind, etc

2. Add to your list daily

3. Review your list often.


When you are focused on your blessings, you can see all of the things that are going right in your world instead of what is going wrong. As long as you can keep your attention focused on what is good, you will be uplifted and joyful.
