1. Drink a tall glass of water. Too easy! Drinking for 60 seconds????
2. Twist it out.
3. Take a deep breath. Done. As a singer (and former trombone player), I know a lot about breathing deeply, breath management, and how to take little "sips' of air. However, now I have some residual gunk in my lungs from a bad cold, and each of my deep breaths resulted in coughing... I believe that's actually helpful.
4. Do 20 jumping jacks. The spirit is willing but the knees and bladder are weak.
6. Go outside
7. Put on a favorite song
8. Sit up straighter. Done
9.Be grateful. Done
10. Tell a joke. Nah... that's embarrassing! I have lousy timing.
11. do 10 pushups
12. Encourage someone. Done - Went with husband today while he repaired a sewing machine. I talked to the husband who has alzheimer's. All four of us feel better for the contact.
13. Set a goal for the day. To clean off the kitchen desk:
14. Focus on one thing you love. I hope I have time today!
15. Wash your hands. Done.
16. Compliment a stranger. I won't be seeing any strangers today, but I make a game of trying to make sales clerks and wait-staff smile when we are doing business. It gives us both a lift!
