As you give thanks this week, will you count your job among your blessings? The Thanksgiving holiday was founded long before we understood the neuroscience behind gratitude. The brain is a naturally skeptical organ, evolutionarily wired to seek out threats in the physical and social world. The brain's "negativity bias" is one of the reasons we tend to give more weight to the bad things that happen in our daily lives.
To counteract the negativity bias, Seligman recommends reinforcing positive experiences through a gratitude list. Spend 5 minutes every evening remembering what went well at work that day and write down the top few items. You don't need to journal about them; merely list them. This small act of keeping the positive in mind will help you feel better about your job.
