2. AVOID NEGATIVE TRIGGER ITEMS:
Do you always feel negative after reading certain newspapers? Perhaps watching the morning news puts you in a downward spiral. When you have identified what things cause you to have a bad attitude, try to reduce your exposure to these items.
*If you cannot reduce your exposure to negative items,
change your reaction to them. When you see negative news
like a story about a natural disaster, think instead about how
you could help. Could you donate money, clothes, food, or
your time? Consider positive actions that you can take in
response to negative items.
3. REDUCE INTERACTIONS WITH NEGATIVE PEOPLE:
If you have one particular colleague who always brings you down, try to reduce your interactions with him. If it is impossible to avoid him, ask him positive questions. Ask him what is going well with his work that day. Ask him what his favorite movies are. Try to steer your conversations towards positive topics.
