Getting Stuck in the Negatives (and How to Get Unstuck) – [TEDxUCDavis video]

My goal of writing 100 thank you notes in 100 days is still in progress, and I feel like I am extra sensitive to the topic of complaining/gratitude/how-is-my-attitude topics. When I found this TedxUCDavis talk by Alison Ledgerwood, I had to share it.

Alison says our brains seem programmed to focus on the negative in situations, and provides us with suggestions of how to overcome this (spoiler alert: think about the positives). It’s worth taking the 10 minutes to hear what she has to say, focus on the positive things in our lives, and be grateful for them.

What is something good that happened in your life today? Let me know in the comments section.
