If you are feeling down, Lila Reyna, author of Quiet Mind, Warrior Spirit, a book that explores self-defense for the mind, body, and spirit, suggests that you change your attitude to allow your creative curiosity to go crazy!
Change Your Attitude, Change Your Mood
Start a journal and observe your feelings, your actions and responses. Ultimately you control your attitude. Greet each day with a big smile and say, "I'm going to have a great day!" It is such simple, conscious changes that brighten your mood. Attitude and mood are choices. Be patient, don't give up, and you will feel the difference!
Wake the Mind with Creativity and Curiosity
The happy mind requires stimulation. What are you passionate about? What have you always wanted to learn more about? What makes you tick? Wake up the mind by being more curious. Take a class, read a book, or if you have a passion for pottery, writing, or woodworking, don't let it go to waste. Create with it and inspire the mind.
"It is not how awful the situation we are in that determines the outlook on the rest of our life. It is our perspective and interpretation of a situation that can either lead to danger or promote growth and healing. The choice is always ours."--from Quiet Mind, Warrior Spirit
