Boost your happy thoughts

As human beings we are hard wired to remember the negative experiences in life. To balance our tendency to negative thoughts I’ve learned the importance of magnifying the happy memories.

Remember the good times

I started scrapbooking and keeping a journal over a year ago. Though it seems like a mundane way to spend my time, scrapbooking has had a positive effect on my mental health.

Scrapbooking is creative and therapeutic. I take photos of the good times in our lives. When focusing on the happy times as I scrapbook I amplify the happy memories building up a happy memory bank. Reinforcing the good memories and outweighing the negative memories.

Taking the time to reflect on my positive memories, writing down sentiments, and creating a keepsake all help me to stay mindful and grateful.

When facing challenging life events, it can be difficult to stay positive. Scrapbooking and looking through my albums reminds me I do have a lot to be grateful for.

Creating a scrapbook and journaling is another way I can take control of my mental health issues.
