Next time you're feeling down, give these eight strategies a try. Remember that like attracts like and that, by boosting your vibe, not only will you start to feel better in the present, you'll also be helping to keep yourself aligned with all the good-feeling experiences and situations that you want to attract into your life in the future!
Any long-term behavioral change, including weight loss, is going to test our limits, challenge our beliefs, make us face our self-doubts, and be an amazing opportunity to live by our resilience and strength. Altering your mindset about this entire process will help you adjust expectations and be able to take setbacks in stride (or at least make them a little less toxic).
Remember, the word thought is not synonymous with the word truth. Your thoughts are not necessarily true or important and you don't have to take them so seriously. Think of them like passing clouds in the sky -- they come and they go. Your true self is the ever-present observer who watches your fear-based thoughts as they pass by.
