Using the power of positive thinking and chanting positive affirmations are great ways to get through difficult situations. Doing your best can only happen when your mind is focused and relaxed. However, nowadays, for most people, that’s getting harder and harder to achieve.

- Civil Unrest
- Climate Change
- Pain & Illness (Physical and Emotional)

Although some of our current troubles won’t last forever, we’ll have to wait on the others to see how they play out. Therefore, the important thing is to watch out for and acknowledge loving acts.
