Wuf Shanti believes that it is important to think well to be well. Sometimes our minds can help control our bodies, so if you feel sad or sick, try to change your thoughts to positive thoughts and watch how it helps you to feel better. If you are sad or yucky, then think happy thoughts which can help you turn your frown upside down. Looking on the bright side will help you to feel good if you are having a bad day, so think happy to be happy.
Here are some hints that can help you:
1. Make a choice to be happy, and think of things that make you smile: puppy dogs, rainbows, the ocean, butterflies, your parents, or your friend.
2. Sing a song that you like which lifts your spirits and makes you want to dance.
3. Every day, write down 3 things that made you happy that day. This will help you remember the good things.
4. Mantras can help change your mind too so that you can focus on happy thoughts. A mantra is something you repeat over and over to yourself that makes you feel better. A good mantra to say is “Today is a happy day.”
