If you see anything which you like, say, “Ah!! this is so beautiful!!”. This seems very simple, but it sure leaves great positivity in your mind.
Do you understand this gift of life?

Starting from the farmer who sowed the seeds to the grocery seller in your area. When you don’t show gratitude for the food, you are not respecting the work and energies of all these people who worked in supplying you the food. So, be grateful for everything in your life. Don’t take anything or anyone for granted.
Be thankful, be humble and be respectful to all people and things around you on an everyday basis. This will make positivity reign in your mind.

Develop a loving and caring disposition. If you don’t share your love with others, it will reduce in you. There are many ways you can show your love, by giving your time, attention, acknowledgement, etc.
