Your shoulder has been bothering you since you got up this morning. “I can’t believe it. Why would this happen to me now when I’ve got so many things to do today,” you say to yourself. There are a couple of ways to manage this train of thought: your body is merely telling you to slow down and you’re wise to heed its guidance; second, when you did wake up, were you in a warm bed? Did you have breakfast? Despite the shoulder’s soreness, could you still get into your heated car and head off to do a couple of errands anyway? Did your kids/your partner give you a hug today? And did you hear the bird singing outside? Quite a few pluses to break that “train of thought” because that’s what one negative thought is: a train running through your head that can cause personal fallout within a normal day if you’re not careful to conduct it as a symphony instead of a train wreck.
To your Happiness,
