How can I create an optimistic environment at home?

I love this question!

OK, let's get right down to it: Your mind is either your strongest ally or your biggest obstacle. My motto when beginning my health journey a decade ago was "Fake it till you make it". Every morning when you rise, look into the mirror (yes, I know the wrinkles are more visible then, but do it anyway) and SHINE. Tell yourself it's going to be a great day and make a plan to make that happen. I keep a daily to do list on my smart phone (Seize the Day is a great free app) and on it I have my day planned from most important to least important. Bringing organization into your life will help you feel more in control and much more optimistic. Last, find some motivational quotes that resonate with you and your goals. Tape them to your cabinet, mirror, coffee pot, wherever you are sure to see them. This way, every time you feel the spirit sinking down, you can take a look at those quotes and feel better. Also, make sure you are getting enough natural light throughout your day to promote a little more natural optimism.
