  • This week, I am trying to make an effort to think of the positive things (Action 4). Today is a beautiful day, I am eating better and exercising more, I have more friends than I did this time a year ago, I am stronger in my faith, and I have a nice home and warm bed (and lovely dog). Not everyone is as fortunate as me.

  • Today I focused on actions 24 and 27. I attended a support group where I helped others and they helped me. I also prayed with a psalm to get in touch with my spiritual side. It is one of my favorites, psalm 116 that I first really started praying with after recovering from a severe illness. The healing was miraculous and I think about it often.

  • Every day I live with an attitude of gratitude for those around me, what's presented to me, and the to all those I pass. I smile, hold the door for others, ask how they are, listen with intention, and take action where required and sometimes not required. Keeping a positive mental attitude and by doing all that is possible to be happy is who I am, and will continue to be. Always look on the bright side of life right? If not, find it for yourself and make it achievable for others.

Additionally, I tried to do Action 49. I looked at people and things at work and tried to find the silver lining. For some people, it was so easy because some are wonderful. For some, it was more difficult. Overall, though, it was beneficial to look at the positive side.

  • I have a three step process: stop, observe, choose. I stop for an hour, or a day and really give myself some chill time. I do something nice like go for a walk or have a really nice coffee. I then observe - what's going on around me and how do I really feel? Last step - choose! I choose to do something different, to get through what needs to be done and reward myself...or whatever feels right! :) Nicky Marshall, Director of Discover Your Bounce in Bristol

  • I'm trying to find out who I really am. I've spent most of my life hiding in the shadows and allowed other people to determine the parameters and design of my happiness. I really do not know how much of my life choices are truly based on me and how much are based on what I think others expected of me. Only now do I realise that I am not content and I need change. No one else can see or understand that but me and for once in my life I feel like I have the power to make choices. I don't know where I am going or what I will find out about myself, all I know is that I am determined to move forward and hold the compass for my own life.

I'm teaching English as a foreign language, and in my work, I tend to meet people from all over the world, who nonetheless have to face the same downs, no matter from which corner of the globe have come from. I like to include coaching elements in our lessons, plus by and large, I learn to be a better listener myself, so I can empathise with my students more and help them with their mental problems if they are happy to discuss any (it turns out many of them are, it's just that there's no one around to listen!).
