"People often focus their minds on negatives," says Baker. "Performing an 'Appreciation Audit' forces you to block out negative emotions and helps you focus on positive feelings."Try the following exercises:

- Write a paragraph about the most beautiful piece of art you've ever viewed.
- Construct a Top Five list, such as Favorite People, Best Vacations, Things I'm Looking Forward To.
