Health Tip of the Day

Tapping Into the Power of Positive Thinking

  • Believe in yourself. Make a list of all your good points if you have lost confidence in your ability to succeed.

  • Use your mind to restore your energy. How you think has a profound effect on how you feel physically.

  • Create your own happiness. You have two choices when you get up in the morning -- to be happy or unhappy.

  • Expect the best, not the worst. You release a force in your mind that promotes positive results when you expect the best.

  • Break the worry habit. Several times a day, use your imagination to empty your mind of anxiety and fear.
