Tell us about something you’ve tried to quit. Did you go cold turkey, or for gradual change? Did it stick?
Some of the best advice I received was to quit greeting each and every one of life’s vicissitudes with negativity and dread. It takes a certain amount of my energy to maintain this positive improved outlook but it definitely beats casting a pall. It wasn’t an overnight conversion to being a Pollyanna; it takes constant and frequent reminders. So far, so good.
