A sunny disposition makes it easier to sail through life.
I stay active. Working out gives me energy and encourages me to think positive. I exercise regularly and take breaks to move around when I am sitting for long periods.
I watch the company I keep. I spend time with family and friends who lift me up. I feel happier when I am around others who show their enthusiasm.
I take a break from disturbing news. I set a limit on how many hours I watch TV or browse online. I look for websites and publications that publish inspiring stories about scientific research and community initiatives.
I focus on the things I can control. I search for solutions.
I view setbacks as opportunities to learn. I give myself credit for trying. I remember that I can use any experience to my advantage.
I visualize myself pursuing my goals and achieving success. I enjoy the journey and the sense of anticipation. I build my confidence and strengthen my motivation.
I speak kindly and gently to myself. I repeat cheerful and motivational affirmations.
I manage stress. I adopt healthy habits that keep me strong and resilient. I reflect and pray. I talk about my feelings. I set realistic expectations and maintain balance between my personal and professional responsibilities.
Today, I train my brain to be more optimistic. I look on the bright side. I remember that hardships are temporary, and I have the power to take action to overcome them.
