Our brain is a powerful tool. However, most of the time -- particularly when we're strung out -- we use it for evil more than good by ruminating over our worries. And while this isn't necessarily our fault (psychologists theorize our brains tend to default to the negative), we ultimately do have control. This week, it's time to take advantage of it.
As part of our month-long series offering tips for stressing less, we've rounded up a week of thought "hacks" to use when your mind starts to settle on the negative. Add these to your to-do list each day and train your brain to reflect on the positive. You can thank us (and yourself) later.
