Appreciate that no matter who the president is............they don't control you or your actions/behavior or words.

They can't control your feelings or how you treat other people and whether you make your little world  better for those around you with positive contributions..........or whether you make it a little worse by dragging others down.

Recognize the humanity of other people, and respect their dignity

Consciously realize that the homeless man you pass on the street every day is, in fact, a man. Through choices of his own or circumstances out of his control, he ended up in this situation, and that makes him no less human. Say hello and warmly greet him. Your greeting could bring healing to his heart, and help heal the world one person at a time. Treat people as equals, no matter how you interpret their social standing.

Be generous

It's easy to be selfish with your time, money, and resources by getting caught up in our material-driven societal expectations. Try being generous and see how your life changes. Buy coffee for the person behind you in line at Starbucks, read to children at your local library, or simply stop and listen for the answer when you ask a friend how they're doing. Chances are that your generosity will energize you, and you'll feel less helpless about how to make the world a better place.

You make the world a better place by making yourself a better person.

  • Image titled Volunteer over Spring Break Step 8
    Take pride in where you live. Take care of and take pride in the area where you live. This preserves the area not just for you but for everyone else in your community. If you have the opportunity to help, take it because not everyone will have the chance. You should also find ways to improve the environment where you live. Here are just a few ideas:
    • Combine good citizenship and environmental cleanup by volunteering with your city to plant trees, maintain sidewalks, and keep green spaces green.
    • Never litter when you're out and about — always try to find a proper trash can or recycling bin for your trash! Clean up trash that you do find, even if someone else dropped it.

Do extend your generosity to those less fortunate than you, even if it's a little........it's better than nothing.

When you are outside, stop and look around you. Take time to appreciate nature!

No matter how bad of a day you might be having, if you look around at the natural world or the sky at night and contemplate the mind boggling reality........... the extent of its existence and our ability to witness it anytime we want....is enough to offset a great deal of negativity that we are subjected to.

Express gratitude often!

The health benefits of developing an attitude of gratitude

https://reflectionsfromaredhead.com/attitude-of-gratitude/


Aside from making you feel good, did you know that expressing gratitude can also improve your health?

Professor Robert Emmons, a professor of psychology at the University of California and one of the foremost authorities on the topic of gratitude in North America, indicates that gratitude is not merely a positive emotion; it also improves your health if cultivated.

As a result, Emmons has found that people who cultivate an attitude of gratitude consistently experienced significant improvements in their life including:

Physical

• A stronger immune systems
• Lower blood pressure
• Sleeping better and longer, awaking feeling rested

Psychological

• Higher levels of positive emotions
• Feeling more alert

Social

• Being more helpful, generous and compassionate
• Feeling less lonely and isolated.

New research is also starting to explore how gratitude works to improve our mental health, showing that gratitude can even have lasting effects on the brain. It appears that practicing gratitude on top of receiving psychological counselling carries greater benefits than counseling alone, even when that gratitude practice is brief.
