Hey Fediverse - the world can be a pretty shitty place sometimes.
One of the few things that was good about Twitter was @asherwolf 's "Best Thing Of The Day" posts.
Talking to Asher, she's encouraged me to take up the practice directly. So I've been following through here and elsewhere.
I encourage you all to also take up the practice either by asking yourself the question "What was the best thing about today?" once a day and posting under #BestThingOfTheDay or following @bestthingsbot to reflect on the best part of your day. It's only got 73 followers and few replies and I think collectively we can do better.
I realise not every day IS a good day and even posts like "a comfortable bed when I got home" is still fine too. It's LITERALLY the thought that counts here.
It's a simple ""Antidote to dissatisfaction" practice that has real world positive benefits with scientific backing (See Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

I have started doing this yesterday here: https://aus.social/@Posty/108373394775703340
Where I am, the day is just getting started, I'll bump this later tonight.
I know when I first started this, just even contemplating this felt like a smack in the face to my brain, so I'll get it in early so the thoughts there for later tonight.
Or post now if you're global!
