A Simple Step towards Positive Thinking

We've talked plenty about positive thinking over the years we've had this blog. Most often it's focused on helping ourselves overcome negative self talk that really cuts into our ability to take care of ourselves, to do the things that we need to do to make ourselves feel well and achieve our goals whether they be about weight loss or living happily.

My Daily OM horoscope yesterday suggested a very simple strategy that I've already employed a couple of times since I read it. Just repeat to yourself periodically (or come up with something similar that 'speaks' to you):

Things are wonderful.

or

My life is joyous.

The horoscope then goes on to say,

Inner satisfaction comes from a realization that we already possess everything we require.

Say these things to yourself a couple of times today, or whenever you think of it. Where do your thoughts go? For me, it's all positive.

Great tip! It's a little new age-y, but I like to say "I am." It reminds me that I'm here, and really that's a blessing in and of itself! Right now is all that we have. :)

I hear you, Fit Bottomed Girl. But sometimes I think we need to think beyond ourselves to, to appreciate more all we have. It's hard to keep that in mind, and a little reminder like Daily OM suggested really helps me.
