1. appreciate what you have.
If you have a few pennies down the side of your sofa your already wealthier than most. instead of focusing on what you don’t have focus on what you DO have. practice being appreciative for what you have and it will prevent you from feeling jealous maybe write a list each day or even mentally take a minute to think of 5 things your grateful for and what positive effect they have on your life.
2. Accept what you cant change and change what you can.
Lets face it you cant control or change everything sometimes things happen that effect us negatively you cant control it so stop trying its only filling you with stress and anxiety and making little grey sprout from your head instead make a plan of what you can change and how you will change it. you might be able to loose weight and get a better job but you will never stop those 2 freckles from joining up on your nose in the summer. The impossible is impossible!
3. Behave better
