Visualize Success! See yourself in the position you desire. Imagine yourself whole, well and powerful! Visualization is the process of creating images in your mind to help bring positive things into your life. When you visualize, you are creating powerful thoughts and feelings of having it now. This is something that professional athletes use to prepare for big events like the Olympic Games. Don’t be afraid to try it!

Laughter is a healthy release of stress and increases vitality. Listen to music that makes you feel good. Toxins also include: unhealthy foods, unhealthy habits or unhealthy relationships.
Clear Up Your Life Clearing up clutter in your personal life is a healthy way to release things that you don’t need and help someone else that may need it. If you have a sentimental attachment, keep what is most important to you. If everything has a sentimental attachment, then it’s necessary to look within yourself to see why you have a need to save things in this manner. Cleaning and clearing out creates a magnet to help good come into your life.

Be Happy As Abraham Lincoln said, “You are as happy as you make up your mind to be!” If you make the effort to be happy, chances are, the people around you will be happy. Sometimes you have to just pretend to be happy until you really start to feel it.
Avoid Criticizing Others People, places or things, both publicly and in your mind. When you find yourself criticizing someone else, replace the complaint with five positive things you can think about that person.
Reframe Reframe-reframing is to see a situation in a different light. If you have painful memories from your past, try to see the positive outcome and how you were able to overcome the situation, then, let it go. Dwelling on past experiences prevents you from being fully present in the now.
What to Do When You Get Depressed Accept the reality of the situation. Try not to slip into denial or pretend it didn’t happen. Focus on something else. Read a book, watch a movie or go for a walk. If you spiral into self-despair, read a positive or uplifting book or read some positive affirmations.

Practice Gratitude Make a list of everything you have in your life to be grateful for. If you can’t think of anything start with two items that are simple like, “I am grateful I have a comfortable bed to sleep in at night.” “I am grateful I have a good meal this evening.” Move Forward. After some time on the pity pot (limit to no more than 15 minutes) let it go.
