“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”
– Willie Nelson
Ol’ Willie Nelson had a point: the power of positive thinking isn’t just a nice thing to say, it’s a genuine scientific phenomenon.
That being said, staying positive isn’t always easy. Especially when one of the quickest ways to ruin your day is to turn on the news.
