Learn to Stay PositiveJan 11th, 2013 | By Editorial Staff | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog
Making every day more pleasant and productive happens with the right attitude. And in my opinion, it also helps to have a little wine and chocolate on hand. I hope the following hints help you:
Simply Smile. A smile has great power to boost our mood as well as lift the spirits of others. Remember: it takes more muscles to frown than to smile.
Have a Laugh. Keep up your good humor by watching upbeat movies and sharing jokes with others. A good belly laugh really is good medicine. Just try it. I know you’ll feel much better — physically and mentally.
Reward Yourself. Devote some time each day to an activity you look forward to. Everyone needs a little “me” time in the day — do it and don’t feel guilty.
Rest Easy. While this is good in theory, most people in the towing industry do not get a good night’s sleep. Getting plenty of sleep helps to recharge your batteries. Taking a few minutes at your desk to do some deep-breathing exercises, shoulder rolling and even closing your eyes for a few minutes does wonders. Guess what? A cat, on average, sleeps 16 hours a day … you certainly can take a few minutes for your own catnap.
Count Your Blessings. Keep things in perspective and focus on the good things in your life. My mother often said that if you took a roomful of people and threw all of their troubles in the center of the room, you would always pull your own troubles out. Start counting — you’ll be surprised by the total at the end of the day.
Feel Proud. Take pride in your work and know that what you do makes a difference. Enough said.
Show the Way. Be a role model for others by demonstrating a positive attitude. Your enthusiasm will spread, brightening everyone’s day. It’s true — being positive and seeing the glass as half full brings out the best in yourself and others.
