I keep myself strong and fit. I eat a nutritious diet full of delicious whole foods. I exercise regularly and aim for 8 hours of restorative sleep each night. I challenge my mind and build my confidence.
I set aside time to laugh and play. I pick out comedies for family movie nights. I tell jokes and share funny memories with my friends.
I speak kindly to myself. I use my inner dialogue to provide encouragement and reassurance.
I cultivate gratitude. I notice the fortunate events that happen each day. I count my blessings. I keep a journal where I write about the things that I am thankful for.
I practice random acts of kindness. I do favors for strangers. I tip generously and leave glowing reviews for local businesses. I hold doors and help others carry their packages. I bake cookies to share at the office and volunteer at my children’s school.
I appreciate the little things. I watch the sun rise and set. I stretch my legs after a long car ride. I put marshmallows in my cocoa and sprinkle cinnamon on my toast.
I slow down and breathe deeply. I acknowledge my feelings and observe my thoughts without making judgements. I scan my body for signs of tension. I focus on one task at a time.
Today, I strike a positive note. I am hopeful and optimistic. I search for solutions and choose to be happy.
1. How do I deal with uncertainty?
2. How does my attitude affect my productivity?
3. What would I say to a friend who was struggling to see past their current difficulties?
