The following is an excerpt from an article on the website for the National Clearinghouse on Familes & Youth.
L is for “let go” of whatever is angering or distressing you. Take a couple of deep breaths and recognize that you have the power to rise above whatever is bothering you. This enables you to become more aware of how you view a situation and to think about changing your attitude.
A is for “attitude.” We can’t control what happens to us, but we can respond to our experiences with a positive attitude. The way we respond is more important than the actual events, Klein explained.
U is for “you,” because only you can change your attitude or let go.
G is for “go do it,” or use what you find in the previous steps to give yourself a more positive and hopeful perspective, and
H is for “humor eyes and ears.” “Humor is all around us all the time, but we don’t always notice it,” Klein says. Look around and notice something you didn’t see before, like a bumper sticker, for example, that may make you laugh.
