Practice gratitude. Choose a time each day that you will keep a gratitude log. Write 1 thing each day that you are grateful for and why. That is, instead of “I’m grateful for school” you might write “I’m grateful for the chance to go to school and to learn new things, which helps me to be more skilled and contribute to our family income.” Keep in mind the goal to actually feel grateful, not just “checking the box” of having done this assignment. Focusing on your gratitude for people rather than things is especially helpful.
