Life Tools | Gratitude

“Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing“. Dr Seuss We are all a little guilty of getting caught up in negativity. I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten annoyed with someone cutting me off in traffic, my husband not listening, someone saying they would do something and not doing it…the list is endless. Fine, we get annoyed, frustrated, s*** happens, but have you ever found yourself spending an inordinate amount of time allowing these negative thoughts to high-jack your mind?

From my own personal experience of being a woman, wife, mother, yoga teacher and recently finding myself in the middle of “bad” situations, which were extremely stressful and unexpected, it made me realise how wholly unequipped I was to handle “serious” stress. I say serious because obviously there are different degrees of stress that we have to manage in our lives, ranging from office politics to grief. However, when you have the right life tools in your arsenal of coping methods, you will be more aware of how to …
