I listen to uplifting audiobooks to keep my spirits up. I have a hard time reading 'self-help' books, but I joined and listening to the audio version really works for me.

Positivity is a find. She does original scientific studies on what makes people flourish and has come up with a ratio of 3:1 postive:negative thoughts. this is the number that makes a tipping point that shifts us from languishing to thriving.

Her website is and there is a self test you can take to see what your ratio is.

BS, age 53, d-day 6-2-08, divorced after 17 years and 20 together. Now I am living alone in the beautiful rural property that was once the dream retreat with X. It's taking a long time to create new dreams but despite some struggles I am mostly happy.
