good morning

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.

Believe yourself

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!

staying positive

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!

Smile Streak

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!

Stress Free

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.
