I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Enjoy your day

in cloudToday is a dismal, grey day outside.  The sun is hidden behind the clouds, only peeking out for a few minutes to tease us with its brightness.   It looks cold and my thoughts are confirmed when I open the door to let the dogs out and the fresh, autumn air rushes in.  Wow, it would be a great day just to crawl back into bed and fall asleep under the warm, soft covers.  But no, that would be a waste of a perfectly good day.

The weather affects how we feel, causing our moods to change.   Bright, sunny days make us feel more positive and energetic.  Dark, cloudy or rainy days make us feel more negative and tired.

If bad weather tends to make you feel miserable or depressed and you are tempted to spend the day in bed, try doing something that will help get you moving.  Here are some suggestions:

  • get a clock-radio and set your alarm so it turns on with some lively music
  • sing along with the radio
  • start thinking positive thoughts as you get out of bed (It is going to be a great day, I’m feeling good today)2 dancing
  • jump in the shower and keep singing
  • put on something colourful and comfortable
  • eat a nourishing breakfast
  • read a motivating book or watch an inspirational program on TV while you eat
  • dance around the house and sing along with some music as you get ready for school or work
  • if you don’t work, go out and take a brisk walk
  • invite a friend to join you for some fun
  • keep doing something positive during the day to keep yourself in a positive mood

Enjoy your day!!!  It doesn’t have to be bright and sunny to be an awesome day!
