8 habits to lead a more positive life:
1. Stop yourself from being judgmental.
2. Say ‘thank you’ early and often.
3. Smile more, be yourself.
4. Don’t worry about the future.
5. Listen to understand, not to respond.
6. Don’t procrastinate.
7. Prioritize yourself.
8. Stop criticizing.
I might add, when you experience challenges, think, ‘What can I learn from this challenge?’
