Ramadan Reflections: Day 24 Nafs Hack with Ahmed Aduib
Nafs Hack: Be Positive
A Nafs Hack that I try to abide by and follow every day is I try to remind myself to always think positive.
If I wake up in the morning and I’m having a bad day and there’s a lot of things on my mind, I basically just talk to myself on my ride to work or on my commute anywhere throughout the day.
I just remind myself on all the good things that I have in life—the family that’s around me, the friends that are around me. I try to remind myself of the good things that I have. If I just constantly think of the negative, I can put myself down.
So, that’s one of the things that kind of keep me positive. I try to talk to people positively, I try to smile more. Those are things throughout the day that give you a positive outlook on life and help you throughout your day.
That’s the key. Think positive, stay positive, and the people around you will be positive as well.
