  1. Love the gratitude each day! I try to say at least three positive things/things I’m grateful for each day as I do my pre-bedtime mini yoga routine, and it’s making a huge difference in my outlook. Love all of your positivity!

    • I’m so glad to hear that, Kristen! I def. feel like this little bit of gratitude each day sorta puts things into perspective….especially when things creep up that annoy me.

      I’m definitely working on the positivity piece as well, but the larger pieces are harder habits to break (like being snarky and critical of others), but in time, I hope that I can become at least a little bit better.
