The “Feel Good Inc.” Folder

Negative events take up more headspace than positive events. It’s easy to forget about the wonderful things that happen to us.

In my email inbox, I have a folder called “Feel Good Inc.,” named after the classic Gorillaz song.

Anytime I receive an email that makes me light up — whether an old friend reaches out or a colleague compliments my work — I place the email in this folder. Then when times get tough and I need a dose of positivity, I just open the folder and read through. It’s also great for work evaluations when I want to support my accomplishments with real evidence.

Focusing on the positive helps give me energy for when times get tough. Having a “Feel Good Inc.” folder gives me the proof I need to believe in myself.
