How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
If God is a part of your life you can stay stronger and have true hope.
Being positive 24/7 does not typically come naturaly for most. Set goals and action steps like you would for anything else, and actively work each day to be positive, less stressed... Pretty soon positivity will be more the norm for you.
When things start to feel overwhelming, I like to get in my car, crank up my 80's tunes, and drive until I feel better.
Positive self-talk really does make a difference in your mood and attitude. It can change your whole outlook on a bad situation, and make a good one even better. Instead of "That was stupid of me" or "I hate myself", think of the good thing you can learn from the situation and say that to yourself.
I must stay on track this weekend. With not being able to work out for the past few days, I must keep my blinders on.
Experience the change:
. . . you can't control others' perception of you or what they think. You can only control you. Stress and worry come from thinking about things you can't control.
Faith within oneself is the key...
While not everything may have gone perfect in your day, surely you've had some successes. Give yourself credit for getting up early, saying no or saying yes to somethings. Don't let one or two negatives defeat all your positives
When I wake up, I am excited to take care of the body I'm slimming down. Everything from brushing my pearly whites to washing my lovely face makes me glad to start a new day! I thank my body for helping me get through each day by pampering it.
