Resilient people remember what they appreciate and value in their life, routinely. You can do this too by identifying 3 things each day that you value in your life, that you are grateful for, or by simply stating the best bits of the day. You’ll find, even when things are tough, that reflecting in this way contributes to feeling glad, or a little bit better, routinely.
