How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
I TRUST IN GOD FOR MY HAPPINESS AND TO STAY POSITIVE.
All the little steps to being positive, really add up.
It is positive thinking to reserve a rest day for your body, mind, and spirit to recoup and heal. Sometimes if you push too hard, there is muscle damage, and you need to allow healing. 1 day a week, I stretch, and may or may not do light cardio, but I give myself a much needed break. It works!
dont let anyone else rule your life!!
When I am overstressed or overwhelmed with life's little (and HUGE) curveballs, I remind myself that, "It's just Life. Life is Change." That simple mantra reminds me that change is normal, nothing to be afraid of, and I reframe "stressors" into "adventures"!
Today with be a beautiful glorious day. I am happy, healthy and full of life. As long as God is on my side he will keep me strong. Enjoy every minute of your life because everyone is precious and a gift.
Letting go of toxic "friends" is just as important as surrounding yourself with positive people. All it takes is that one person that will delight in the back handed compliment or saying cutting or disparaging things. It is OKAY to distance yourself, in fact, you NEED to keep the negativity away.
I put a list of the advantages of losing weight all over the place. On the mirror in the bathroom, on the fridge, in my datebook and over the visor in the car. I make sure to stop at least once a day and read the whole list.
Loving yourself is the only way to succeed, not only in weight loss but also in life. So love yourself, even on the bad days, and you will find success!
