How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
The people you hang out with the most are the ones who have the most influence on you. If you stay around those who are exuding positive energy in all aspects of life it will definitely rub off.
When you are having a wonderful day, don't let others come along and mess your day up. That co-worker who is never happy, the EX, the worker in the store who is rude, just smile and remember your goals and say, " Have a Blessed day." It always works for me
Stay focuse on your goals.Everyday make sure that you do somthing that will help you reach your goals!!!!
One day will not make or break you.
Wear a big rubberband on your wrist. Every time you complain about your weight, switch it to the other wrist.
When things start to pile up or look bleak, I remember to count my blessings! Give thanks and ask for guidance! Some of the paths the guidance has taken me down, even when they look scary, just around the corner is the brightness!!! It is hard to be negative, when you are counting your blessings
When ever i feel a little down i rock out to my fave song and it picks me back up
When I start to feel like I've screwed up and want to toss in the towel I look at dogs. They have the "if you fail the first time, keep trying" motto in life. If a dog wants a bone he keeps going until he gets it. Which reminds us a bad day is just a sign to get up and try again tomorrow.
I dance around the house while doing chores or cooking or whatever. I don't count it towards my activity log, I just do it for fun. Try not to smile while you dance to Don't Stop Believing. Just try it. Bet you can't.
In order to prevent feeling deprived, I make a point of regularly asking myself what I'm currently craving, and then plan my meals and/or treats around that craving. That way I never go too long without my favourite foods - I just eat them in sensible portions! And I stay on program! Win-win-win!
