Practicing mindfulness can also help in focusing and appreciating every moment as well as the 'small' things you do such as getting out of bed or brushing your teeth in the morning. Each evening, try noting three small wins that you have achieved during the day, remembering that whatever you achieve, no matter how small, is always something to be proud of.
