When things seem to go wonky in your schedule or you feel irritated by not getting enough done, sometimes it's hard to get back on a positive track. The issue is often that your mind is going down the proverbial rat hole!
Here is a great tip from the podcast, Teach Me Something New with Brit Morin, "Even in the chaos of everyday life, moments of gratitude remind us to hold on to the good things.”*
