On a piece of paper or a note on your computer/phone, write down:

  1. One person you are grateful for having in your life currently or at one point in time.
  2. One bare necessity you are grateful that you don't have to worry about.
  3. One element of nature you are grateful for today. Actively seek out something to experience today so you can write it down, like the smell of grass, the sound of rain, the sunrise or sunset, the skyline, anything that you experience yourself.

Appreciating the small things in life on a regular basis can consistently put you in a better mood, make you more productive, and make the problems in your life seem much smaller or sometimes even insignificant. Repeat this exercise daily, or at the very least, when you are not in your best mood.
