Cultivate gratitude wherever possible, even for the things that challenge you, as these help you to grow and build strength. Journaling can help you do that:

  • At the end of each day, write 10 things that you are grateful for that day.
  • Celebrate and recognize them.
  • Soon you will see running themes and will be able to make them happen more often.

Joy is more consistent and is cultivated internally. It comes when you make peace with who you are, why you are and how you are, whereas happiness tends to be externally triggered and is based on other people, things, places, thoughts and events.

Reducing Social Media
  • Check social media sites just twice a day. Once mid-morning, so you’re not starting your day with social media, and again late afternoon.
  • Keep a maximum of two portals of instant messaging that friends and colleagues can contact you on.
  • Choose those you ‘follow’ or who appear in your feed wisely. Opt for those who inspire you, not those who bring you down.
