Appreciate what you have.
Focus on your available resources and see what you can do with them instead of desiring what you do not have. You will then achieve inner contentment, and in turn, happiness.
- Focus on the positives.
No matter how upsetting or distressing you feel your life may be, there is always a positive aspect.
For example, even if you are completely paralyzed from the neck down, you still have a mind you can use.
