I recently heard a podcast interview with Tank Sinatra. The takeaway is that our brains are wired to focus on the negative. In order to maintain balance in a world that shoves negative news at us in a never-ending stream, we need to actively seek out good news. To assist with this, he’s created a website called Tank’s Good News where you can find positive news stories. I particularly love this piece about a toddler with Down Syndrome starring in a children’s clothing campaign.
I’m now making an attempt to read more good news than bad each day in an attempt to restore my faith in the world. Like the old song says, “You have to ac-cen-tu-ate the positive.”
How about you? What are you doing to stay positive these days?
