Repeating a mantra daily helps us to remember what we tell ourselves. Choose a mantra and live by it. As you repeat it again and again you will start to notice it becoming your personal mission statement.

Listening to music in the car up loud always helps me to get in a positive mood, just make sure the music is upbeat and positive, that means no break up songs. Have your own personal party on the way to work or wherever you are going.

9. Read a book with a flashlight under the covers.
