#158 - Exercise Optimism

Optimism is one of the 8 core emotional intelligence competencies, and it’s a critical component to living a happy life. 

Our brains are hard wired with a bias to focus on the negative aspects of our lives.  

These negative aspects don’t do us any good most of the time, so it’s critical to become aware of them and not let them snowball.

Keep your mind focused on the present, and watch these thoughts as they arise. Let them pass, and think about the good things in your life.  

Today is a precious day. I hope you take advantage and get the most out of it!
