Each commercial break, I hop down on the floor and start doing crunches or something. After a couple minutes, the show comes back on and I take a break. Most half hour time slots on TV have 10 minutes of commercials, or 20 minutes for hour-long shows.
It's a lot better than staying on the couch to channel surf or worse, wandering into the kitchen to snack... =)
One of my secrets to success is that I change my negative thoughts by using voice affirmations. What I do is record my affirmations on my smart phone or hand held recorder. I plug in my ear phones and listen to them when I start to notice my inner thoughts are negative. I make these recordings after I have had some sort of epiphany about myself and am alone to think it out and record. These affirmations change my thoughts to what I want them to be!
“The words we say, internally and externally, have tremendous power, yet they’re often full of doubt and fear.Converting your goals into positive statements of affirmations is another way to focus intensely.” The Spark, p. 24
