How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
My day is much better if I wake up before 9, eat a healthy breakfast, and then go to the gym. On the days when I get all of this done by 11 am, I feel noticeably happier.
Someone I know was going through very tough times but never seemed down. She told me that she told herself so many times that she was happy, she was beginning to believe herself!! Tell yourself what your really WANT to believe!
A smile on YOUR face is going to spread to at least one other person's face when you share it!
In these hard times, it's hard to stay positive. Focus on what you have; take a look around you and see the great things in life. Don't take things for granted. Enjoy every day of your life and never give in to the negative!
I stay positive by remembering one pound is better to none and a step closer to your final goal.
Stay positive about your program by giving yourself a treat now and then.
Remebering that even when I don't lose weight I am feeding my body better
I've read that the physical act of smiling actually makes you feel better. And it does (try it now). But when you need a lift the most, it's hard to remember. I now have a smile streak. Tie it to a daily task like taking vitamins. Then smile!
Cleaned all week for company that is not coming till next week, change of plan I heard about Friday. Granddaughter here Saturday and we where really busy. Have a lot of fun with her. Later getting my spark point page finished. Love life, thank God for all of it.
Remember that no matters when "junk" happens...it's not about you. Don't take it personally. It's just an event. The sun shines and the rain must pour. If we realize it is not about us we won't stress out about everything. Take a personal inventory and move on.
