These thoughts/suggestions are in no particular order, and in fact individually have helped people shake the doldrums and/or avoid laziness.  Enjoy!

  • Sing your favorite song as loud and proud as you can
  • Look at your reflection and say out loud “I am great”
  • Junk food is bad (even though it tastes good)
  • Early to bed, early to rise
  • Write a list of ten things you are grateful for
  • Call or write a family member, friend, or mentor who is dear to you and/or helped you in some way
  • See if you can pinpoint a time of day when you are least effective and take a 15 minute power nap
  • Find a way to donate your time to the community
  • Get off drugs and alcohol
  • Budget TV/Video/Computer Time
  • Go for a walk and breathe in deeply
  • Wake up at the same time at least 6 days/week
  • MOVE!
