The notion of “Good Vibes Only” or what has come to be called “toxic positivity” has become so pervasive in our society. This idea that if we just think positively, everything will be ok. Not only is that dismissive of the real experience that a person might be having, but it’s not helpful in building a strong mindset. In contrast, a true gratitude practice has been shown to promote mental wellbeing. 

Today on this episode, we’ll talk about the distinction between toxic positivity and a true gratitude practice and how you can implement a practice that will actually help you balance your thinking and create a better life experience.
