• Choose your attitude.

    Make a little checklist for yourself, and place it where you will see it when you first wake up. At the top of the list, write this statement: “Today I choose to feel __________.” Below that, make a list of possible ways you can feel. Try adjectives like happy, carefree, peaceful, purposeful, confident, relaxed, serene, easygoing, loving, patient, kind, and so on.

    Keep reminding yourself of the choice you made if you feel yourself slipping occasionally throughout the day!
