Chin Up!

Keeping your spirits up in today’s hectic business environment can sometimes be difficult, whether you’re working from home or in an external office. Below are three encouraging things to do when you feel negativity and self-doubt creeping in:

Think of something you’re grateful for.
It could be a professional accomplishment or a personal achievement. Bring it to your mind and talk to yourself about it. You’ll find that you can’t keep two different emotions in your mind at the same time. The feeling of gratitude will likely block out negative thoughts.

Find something you like about yourself.
For example, are you creative? How does this help you enjoy life? How does this help you do your job better? Focus on some positive aspect of your life, something you like about yourself, and expand on it.

Look forward to something.
Is there a movie you want to see or a vacation you’d like to take? Picture it in your mind as vividly as you can— think of associated colors, smells, sounds, and other sensations. A short mental break like this can combat negativity.
