Be kind to self

Once upon a time, I would speak harshly to myself. When looking in the mirror or when making a not so wise food choice. Now, I don't judge my looks, and if I happen to goof by say, eating a donut treat someone brought to the office, I simply do better by working out or eating a few extra fresh veggies at the next meal. It has helped me become a more relaxed individual, and I can enjoy and live more in the moment. emoticon

Read Blogs. Write Blogs.

I have found that by reading others' blogs, I not only learn about myself, but learn from them. emoticon

Count my blessings.

I may not be rich or famous but blessed everyday in some way or other. Even though my days do not always go well I can list at least one blessing.

Smile and be kind

No matter who you have to face, and what your job is today, smile and be kind to those around you. Respect and a kind attitude will make a difference in the lives of those around you, and in your own life as well.

Healthy Snacking

Plan Ahead emoticon . When at work of out and about, when hunger strikes so does temptation. I pack my take along bag with healthy eats and plenty of bottled water that are easy to grab when on the go. This helps me to steer clear of drive-thru.

Lower Stress as a Goal Motivator

When I set up my Goal Board, one of the little banners that pops up is "I want to reduce the stress in my life." It is a daily reminder that in addition to taking care of my fitness and eating habits, I also need to have plans that help me deal with emotional and mental stress. It makes me feel more in control and empowered to change negative situations that arise. I am a much more calm and happy person with that simple reminder every day.

Changing the channel of my mood and thinking

By either a brief activity, like washing my hands, or a more serious time commitment, like taking a shower or taking a break outside I am learning that I can end a mood or at least give me a fresh start a rooting out the difficulty that started it. emoticon
