Turn on the joy station.

One of the ways I tell my clients to shift their 'upsets' -- the upsets that manifest as 'mental leap frogging', ruminating, self pity -- is to change the channel on their radio. I like to think that the thoughts in our head create our own personal radio. It's what you hear day in and day out, right? Instead of listening to the 'upset' show, switch 'channels' and tune into all the grand and minut gifts in your life. Once you do it, bam(!), your mental and physical load lightens.

Simple truth.
Tune into the gifts in front of you and tune out the upsets.
