Staying Positive When Things Hurt! Here is another inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae.

Feeling Down? Five Quick Ways to Raise Your Mood Wendy Mason  is a Career Coach and Life Coach helping you to solve difficult problems at home and at work We all have grey days when we feel down. I’m not talking here about on-going low moods when we may need the support of a coach, counsellor or clinician. No, these are the days when you just wake up feeling low for no very good reason at all. Try these tips to give you a boost and get you feeling positive again. ·          Start moving. 10 minutes dancing to a lively tune can do wonders. But if dancing in front of your bedroom mirror doesn’t appeal, how about going for a brisk walk in your local park or simply doing some stretching exercises? ·         Do something for someone else. You would be surprised how good doing a good turn makes us feel. So, how about doing some shopping for an elderly neighbour? Even just smiling at people can make you feel better. You’ll be surprised how many people smile back. ·

You can’t change it instantly and make an overnight success of yourself. Of course, nowadays these limits are changing.  But please know if it is taking time to come around that is the way of the world. Most of the overnight successes of the past have been forgotten because if it’s a video on youtube, someone’s watched it once or a few times but after they’ve done it they’ve done it. You may feel you want that kind of success but it’s much better to work towards something, than just to have it whether you’re appreciative or not.
