Work can either be fun or drudgery.
It depends upon our attitude. So, which to choose? Personally, I like fun!
Attitude is like a muscle. The more you work it, the stronger it becomes, and the easier it becomes to shift it.
Here are 5 things I do to shift my attitude toward gratitude when I’m in a bad mood or not feeling like life is drudgery:
- Self-talk: I ask myself, “Hey, do you want to have fun or do you want to feel lousy today? Let go, dive in and have fun!”
- Find people to hug and thank them for….
- Take a walk to clear your mind. Make a point of noticing the beauty of nature.
- Find someone who needs your assistance and help them. This gets you out of ‘self’.
- Focus on the good.
