Ways of improving optimism :
1. Make a list of three good things that have happened to you at the end of each day. The things you list do not have to be major items, but simply tasks you may feel you have handled better than you thought you would.
2. When you find yourself looking at life pessimistically, replace your negative thought with a positive thought or image.
3. Make a list of positive statements and repeat these to yourself on a daily basis (e.g., ‘I can learn to think and behave differently’).
***Hope this can help those who find it hard to feel optimistic at the moment....
