girl3List all the ways you are a nice, interesting, smart and great person. Now record this list in your own voice and keep it close to play back whenever you need that reminder.

Mark a memory. Sit at the computer or curl up with a notepad and a good pen and remember – in exquisite detail- one of the most wonderful things that’s ever happened to you. It could be your first kiss, your wedding day, a surprise birthday party that truly was a surprise. Dwell on how wonderful you felt then, and feel those emotions returning now.

Cook a new food – one you’ve never even attempted before. It doesn’t have to be exotic, it could be beef or chicken cooked in a sauce you’ve never dared to try.
