The way we tackle each day can seriously change our outcome. Your perspective predicts your outcome in the long-run. If you start the day on a good note, chances are, you’re more likely to say “yes” to either meeting with a friend, trying a new activity, or finishing that project at home. Think about when you start the day feeling lower than usual. The chances of wanting to complete anything are slimmer in comparison to those on that good day, right?

Once you start to feel better and begin steps towards adopting a brighter perspective, even exercising can become easier.
Don’t forget to make a gratitude list to either keep with you or on your bedside table. Remembering what we have and how far we’ve come is important.
