How to practice your attitude

A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones. ~Proverbs 17:22

It’s never too late to create a habit of positivity, gratitude and hopefulness. Creating a healthy attitude as a habit is a spiritual practice.  We need a happy heart and a cheerful mind to be healthy.

What are some simple ways to develop a healthy attitude?

Put reminders all over your house, in your car, on your bathroom mirror, “Be positive, Be optimistic and thankful.”

Start your day with a gratitude session.    For a few minutes meditate and contemplate all your blessings and be thankful on purpose.

Think positive on purpose. We are going to be thinking about something, so why not allow our thoughts to strengthen and bless us instead of weaken and hurt us.  Positive, thankful thoughts lead to a positive attitude which leads to positive forward moving action.  The only way to change our thinking and strengthen our mindset is to deliberately meditate on thoughts that empower and strengthen you,.

A great evening practice to develop is to write down 3-5 things that went well for you that day.  This will keep us focusing on the good and positive, and not be so consumed with worry and problems.  End your day on a positive note.

As William A. Ward once said, “God gave you the gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say “thank you?”

So, remember, we have only one day at a time to live, so let’s live this day consciously and deliberately and choose well!
