Love what you wear

If you don't feel good in what you are wearing - give it away! You'll stay more positive if what you wear is clean, pressed, comfortable, it will make you feel great!

I Take Time for Me

My husband likes the saying if Momma aint happy aint no one happy. It is important to have me time. I plan time for myself every day to ensure I get my exercise in. If I take time for myself I have more to give to others in my role as mom,etc

Start the day with a smile

The easiest way for me to do this is to be kind to the morning cafeteria workers who swipe me in; they become so happy that someone is being sincere and kind, that it just makes me bubble over with happiness and makes it impossible to not start the day happy!

No eating 5 hours before bed

Me not eating 5 hours before bed every night helped me to lose 40lbs in 4 months. When I started eating before bed I gained my weight back. It was hard for me to lose weight when I was eating 5 hours or less before going to sleep.

Care For Another

When I'm feeling "blue," I find if I do a deed for someone else like hold a door, pick up something dropped, give a compliment, say hello to a stranger, etc., I always feel so much better

Clean

For me whenever I am upset or worry about something. I start to clean. I clean things that required a lot of time and By the time that I finished my emotions have passed. Instead of eating Ice cream which I was doing before.
