2. FOCUS ON HAVING A POSITIVE MINDSET:
How you think about something ultimately is how you will feel about something. If you want to control your attitude, be aware of your thoughts. Focus on the positive things. Eliminate your negative thoughts by consciously attempting to think with a positive, internal voice.
For example, when you feel frustrated because someone is taking too much space on the subway, think instead about how grateful you are for public transit. Think positively about how happy you are not to have to drive your car through snow and ice to work.
Remind yourself to think positively during tense moments in the day. For example, before starting your commute or before a big meeting, pause and reflect on what has been going well.
Thinking positively takes practice. Do not feel frustrated if your mind sometimes wanders back to negativity.
