296 // How to Be More Optimistic During Difficult Situations
Hello and welcome to episode 296 of The Mindful Kind podcast.
In this episode, you'll learn about some practical strategies to help you be more optimistic during difficult times.
To understand optimism a little more, be sure to check out episode 114 of The Mindful Kind, "Outlooks on Life: Optimism."
Please keep in mind that you don't have to feel happy in order to be optimistic!
Below are three strategies to help you be more optimistic during difficult times:
1: Identify the loudest negative thought and gently challenge it (then focus your attention on a more optimistic thought)
2: Practice gratitude or observing your strengths during difficult times
3: Take empowered action. Choose one small thing you can do to help make the difficult situation a little better
Thank you so much for listening and I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind.
