In the appointment calendar, schedule a hug for all the hard work. I had sent hugs to myself for today & it was the first thing I saw in may e-mail, right when I needed it. .

Look Again!

Just got a great new hair style from a lovely teen, friend of my DD-- it took 10 years off & makes me want to get moving to keep up with it! Now I look the part!

Have a Laughing Cow, man!

I love Laughing Cow lite cheese & use it to spread on the bread for a sandwich instead of mayo, or over a stick of celery & put pistachio nuts in it for a super snack...then discovered it's great for replacing butter in mashed potatoes! YUM!

Dance out of the rut

When you're in a mental rut, put on music ... stand up and move to it while you try to think things through. Before you know it you'll be dancing & happy & active again.

Modify to Keep it interesting

doing repetive things can get boring, and your body can get so used to it it doesn't help as much - modify by doing 10 sets straight, then adding something different like head turn s or leg lft sfor the next 10, alternate- or do your whole circuit in reverse, or change your route....

Secret Stash

I put a small, set amount from each check in a seprate savings account before I even do my budget, then forget about it. Increase the amount with each raise! I started out with just the total amount over the nearest hundred..it all adds up!

Shout Out!

Every time I've hit a low, this magic trick has worked for me: send a shout out on Spark-- a blog, a help line on a team conversation, a huddle...the reassurance that others who have been there are there for you now makes it impossible to stay negative for very long.
