Select one positive behavior to focus on for the day. Little changes really add up. Here are some ideas to consider:
• Plan and execute a secret good deed. This could be anything from paying for someone’s lunch, sending flowers, providing a note of encouragement, a gift card for groceries, or a basket of fruit. Try it! The fun of playing secret agent and giving to another without anyone finding out is exciting and gives you a mental boost like no other.
• Pack a healthy lunch and snack bag for the next day.
• Really enjoy a walk–talk with a friend, listen to inspiring music, think through a problem, appreciate the scenery, or notice the strength in your muscles.
