This month, we challenge you to see the positive intentions of others. There are two steps to this challenge. See if you can complete them both!
First, try seeing the positive intentions of people close to you.

This exercise will:

- Shifts thinking from negative to positive
- Increase both empathy and compassion - traits that are linked to living a happier life!
Remember- There is always an untold story that we may not know about!
