My solution has been to re-direct my feelings towards Lady Luck.Many of the sub-traits associated with spirituality are the same sub-traits associated with gratitude.
This is because the very nature of gratitude is to focus on others (on acts of benevolence).
This also means that we get use to the bad things that happen to us.
Put more simply, we get use to the good things that happen to us.
While in a grateful mood, we will feel gratitude more frequently, when we do feel gratitude it will be more intense and held for longer, and we will feel gratitude for more things at the same time.
The actual gratitude produced during those five minutes is small, but the emotions of gratitude felt during those five-minutes are enough to trigger a grateful mood.
