A change of perspective can go a long way in how we feel and approach our day. Try using the word ‘choose’ instead of ‘should’ or ‘supposed to’ or ‘have to’. For example, last night I thought, with a bit of dread, ‘Now I have to go home and cook dinner’. Then I caught myself and realized this was my choice, because it’s important to me and my family to eat healthy food. I reframed the situation and said ‘Now I am choosing to go home and cook dinner and spend time with my kids’. It was the same task, but I was more positive, enjoyed it more and really, it was not that difficult.
What can you choose to do today?
