Dr. Laura Berman wants you to find the good in every situation, no matter how stressful or difficult. Think about one situation in your life that consistently makes you angry or anxious or sad—and then name five things that are actually good about that situation. The goal is to break the pattern those negative emotions create, and gain more control over how they affect you.

Remember: 1 bad situation + 5 good things = Accepting the things in your life that you cannot change and getting clear on how to manage them
