We are all faced with physical, mental, emotional or financial challenges or difficulties. Perhaps the first thing to do is not make it worse. For example, avoid that thing that is harming our bodies. Stop adding more of the same type of thoughts that created the stressful emotions or upset mind in the first place. For financial challenges cut down on unnecessary expenditures.
Then we can deliberately cultivate new positive mindsets and habits such as seeing the good in others or substituting a healthy habit for an unhealthy one or preparing more of our meals at home.
