Staying positive or becoming a positive person is only a decision away. If you are a positive person, then it is pretty easy to stay upbeat. Life can drag you down rather quickly so you have to guard your mind. If you aren't positive, and want to become a more positive person... read... read... read... lots of books out there on developing a positive attitude. The Power of Positive Thinking is GREAT! Love the chapter on "Excusitis", but decide... to become a positive person and just do it!
Benefits: less stressed; you are just happier! Life is so much better!

Remember that staying positive can be the best help for you on this journey to better health. Playing "the glad game" is one way that I stay positive. When I find myself getting down or depressed, I remind myself of all the things that I am GLAD about. I count my blessings & write out a gratitude list. When I am positive & upbeat I am more inclined to exercise and eat right instead of getting into the emotional eating.
