If you spend your time thinking about positive things you can do to solve your problems, the result will be that you feel less stressed than had you spent time in contemplating and focusing on the negative feelings you’ve had in past experiences. If you find yourself absorbed with the negative, gently work to bring your mind to what’s good in your life — or at the very least on what can be done to move past stressful situations you’re encountering. Cut yourself some slack when something crappy — losing a job, undergoing a breakup, or experiencing trauma — happens in your life. These situations are painful. You’re most likely not going to feel perky and peppy about it all, and that’s okay. Trying to squash the anxiety or grief will only intensify those feelings.

Words made a big difference in how you feel and in the way others perceive you. One of the biggest ways we transfer stress is verbally. So jump-starting a conversation with a positive statement can set the tone in a different place.

You experience and create all kinds of different energies that affect how you feel and what you accomplish throughout your day. Some energies are powerful and easily recognizable, while others are more subtle and often only intuitively felt. Positive energy is contagious. When you constantly take in the positive energy from your surroundings, it will be visible in the outer world. One of the quickest ways to shift your focus away from negativity, judgment, and disappointment is to list the things in your life for which you are grateful.

Be grateful to be gainfully employed, to sleep in a bed each night, for the sun that comes up each morning, for the waiter who greets you with a smile, for the people that love and care for you, and for a body that lets you experience life each day.

Consider getting involved with genealogy. Digging into your family history can provide a deeper understanding of your heritage and create a tangible link to the past, offering a unique perspective on the events and conditions that shaped the lives of ancestors. This exploration can foster a strong sense of identity and continuity, grounding you in a lineage that stretches through decades or even centuries. Genealogy also serves as a way to preserve family stories and traditions for future generations, ensuring that the legacy of relatives does not fade into obscurity. Beyond personal enlightenment, genealogy can also have practical implications, such as determining genetic health risks or establishing legal entitlements related to inheritance or nationality. Engaging in genealogy can be a fulfilling endeavor, turning abstract historical data into a personal journey of discovery and connection.
