What are you grateful for? When you are bogged down with negative feelings or emotions, it is hard feel positive. However trying to see behind those feelings to the positive things in your life, can really help you work through those challenging emotions.

Try to see those negative feelings as clouds and know that behind the clouds there is bright sunshine. Negative emotions are like clouds they block the positive thoughts, but by knowing that there are always positive thoughts in there somewhere, you can start to look for them.

Sit quietly for a moment, take a few deep breaths and try to notice something positive. Even if those challenging feelings arise, can you think of something you are grateful for? Do you like the sound of the birds singing? do you love the sunshine? What about your amazing body, working hard all the time without you even noticing – your heart beating, the breath flowing. Start with something small and the positive thoughts will start to flow. It may take time but with practice you will find more and more things to be grateful for.
