Take a Break

When you have worked hard, it's okay to take a break (both with food and exercise). Just get back on track the next day and DON'T say, I'll pick back up on Monday.

No matter what you are doing during your day, smile for no reason at all. It will brighten your mood, the overall atmosphere in the room and eventually you will start feeling better all togehter. Also your resting facial expression won't be a frown but alot friendier and happier.

Smile At Yourself

Keep a small mirror by your computer and look into it while saying messages you need to tell yourself. Smile and be as kind to yourself in your thinking as your are to others. If you are dealing with a specific issue, smile and tell yourself about it. Sounds crazy, but you're your best friend.

Happiness is a Choice!

I truely believe that happiness is a choice. We often don't have control over many circumstances in our lives, but what we do have control of is how we react. Make a choice to see the best in circumstances and you will be a much happier person!

Gratitude Calendar

Each Christmas, a good friend gives me a calendar with about 1 1/2 inch squares for the dates challenging me to write in my "gratitudes' at the end of each day. Most times, they don't fit and i have to choose my favorite.

Talking with Friends

By talking with my friend, we keep each other on track and up about losing the weight, even if we do slip up once in a while! 2 steps forward... 1 step back.. always 2 steps forward though!

"Hum your Favorite Hymn"

I find when I am down, how much better I feel if I sing a familiar song. Something with a catchy tune and a positive message. This takes my mind off of the negative and puts a smile on my face.
