How to stay positive

I have always struggled with this myself until I came to understand that every person has something different that works. I was told to keep a gratitude journal, morning affirmations, only be around people who inspire you. Let me tell you in my job at the time the toxicity of people around me was insane. I had to go to work. How do I conquer that? Keep a journal… Hahaha if you even knew me a little you would know that I don’t do bookwork by necessity let alone by choice. I just don’t have the commitment to it. Morning affirmations worked for a bit with an app but then I would forget or they would need to be changed and I would fall off.
