on self improvement

You’ve been told that meditating is great, but you can’t seem to find yourself able to sit still in silence for more than 30 seconds without remembering something that you MUST do.

Or you can meditate, but you’re still getting easily affected and frustrated by what happens around you.

But if you’re looking to change things a bit, and create a better life for yourself. One that you think you can actually be grateful for, have a look at this and try something out.

There are 3 suggestions here.

Can you imagine how fun it would be to open that jar and go through all those papers and read all those good things?

#3 Three Good Things

Picking three good things about your day, no matter how small or big, everyday before sleep.

Check out the video of a Facebook live streaming I did, for more on this.
