Adopting a great outlook in life is one of the best ways to learn how appreciate the little things and increase your productivity. With the May storm season here in South Florida gearing up and while Ubering in North Miami, I came across these little guys at gate of an apartment complex.
I asked myself, “what do I know about gratitude?”
Appreciating the little things in life means taking time out to focus our attention on what is meaningful and sustaining in our lives and learning how to practice gratitude for those everyday things that are easy to take for granted.
Positive emotions relate directly to our physical and mental health. They affect our immune function, psychological wellbeing and creativity.
Being able to spend just a few minutes to take our minds away from the hustle of everyday life enhances creativity and productivity.
We need to slow down and savor the little things to stay mindful and renew our creative energies.
Being mindful is becoming more and more difficult but it is necessary to enhance and increase the presence of positive emotions.
