“Since irritation, anger, hate, and resentment have such a powerful effect in producing ill-health, what is the antidote? Obviously, it is to fill the mind with attitudes of goodwill, forgiveness, faith, love and the spirit of imperturbability.”
I have heard it said, to “Practice an attitude of gratitude.” That can take several forms. From Paying for the coffee of the person behind you in the queue (not really feasible in the current climate) to taking the time to contact someone for a chat.
When I was in a senior management position, I used to take the time to write a personal note to staff, just to express my gratitude for their being part of the team. It was hand written (not printed from the computer) and in an envelope addressed to them. The impact was immeasurable in terms of motivation and feeling part of the team and appreciated.
Perhaps we could take a lesson from that in the current environment and make time to write some letters. (By HAND)
🤔 What is one thing you could put into action right NOW?
