Finding joy and overcoming your negativity bias

A phrase on the radio today rang out to me

"you find joy most acutely in the smallest things"

I think this is true - think a brief expression in someones face; a household item that is really useful; a drop of rain on a flower; a phrase on the radio.....

Then this dropped into my inbox which is really worth a read. Our inbuilt, negativity bias is something I teach about in my meditation course, and we always veer towards the negative things in our lives because of it. This blog post from Mrs Mindfulness explains negativity bias and ways we can train ourselves to overcome it - by connecting to the joy in the little things. ❤️ I'm really going to try this this week - who is joining me?
