It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.
Robert H. Schuller
Give up discouragement----be full of hope.
We’ve all been there. Work feels like drudgery, your relationships are out of whack, and you feel down on life in general. We all have ups and downs, and periods of discouragement are normal. But if the statement, It’s not just our aptitude but our attitude that determines our success, is true and most would agree that it is important to know how to get out of a slump and get back on track.
I’ve often said that I don’t have time to interfere in other peoples business and the reason is I have a hard enough time keeping myself on track. I’m my own worst enemy sometimes.
The first step we need to take in adjusting our attitudes is to admit we have a problem. The second step is to take a look at your sleep habits. There is a well established connection between lack of sleep and mental and physical health.
Next, try doing something active to improve your attitude. Take a hike in an inspiring environment, go to the gym, or have a conversation with an encouraging friend or family member.
Finally, try incorporating an 'attitude of gratitude' into your everyday life. No matter how tough things get, there is always something to be thankful for.
We have a choice about the way we want to feel. Taking steps to encourage ourselves and to take time to be thankful. Have an attitude of gratitude and hope will not be far away!
