A Pep Talk

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Do you give yourself a daily pep talk? You should! The power of positive thinking is huge! Whether you know it or not, many of us have multiple episodes of negative self talk every day.

To change that, start paying attention to that little voice in your head. Is it telling you something positive or negative? If the answer is negative, immediately counter it with a positive affirmation.

Sparkpeople has a whole library full of motivation/inspiration. Cell phones have apps that can send you a daily quote to inspire.

Studies show that people who have a positive attitude live longer, happier lives. I choose to think positive thoughts and avoid negative people. I choose to live my life to the fullest.

I found this youtube video by Kid President very inspiring.

What do you think? Have you changed your mind so you can change your body? Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you!

    Since being on SP I've learned the importance of positive thinking and pep talks. And I find it so much easier to give these same kudos to others. I love it! And thank you for sharing the video - it's been going 'round but I hadn't taken the time. Wouldn't it be fun to have a "Kid President" in your life?!

    You're right. I try to stay positive in the midst of a lot of negative things in my life.

    I'm trying very hard to change my attitude and outlook from "this is soooo hard" to "this is so worth it"

    Being positive is certainly what keeps me going. If I'm negative, then I get depressed and don't want to do anything except eat chocolate.
