The 4 Day Attitude Diet: Day 1

on May 29, 2008

On Tuesday, one of my bosses sent us an email about the “4 Day Attitude Diet.” I normally skim over these things before clicking the “x” on the Outlook toolbar, but this one looked interesting. So I’m trying this 4 Day Attitude Diet and I’m sharing the results with my blog-dience.

Positive Attitude Diet Day 1: Fill your mind with positives.

Instead of living your life on autopilot, letting any and all thoughts come into your mind, consciously feed your mind positive input. Do this on the first day of every week, and do it throughout the day. Read
inspirational books; listen to uplifting music, or call an upbeat person. And by all means, avoid the cynics and gripers.

Keep a journal and write down 50 wonderful things that happen to you on Day 1. Include even small things… like finding a quarter on the sidewalk… or a stranger greeting you with a cheerful “good morning.”
After awhile, you’ll realize that most of the things that happen in your life are positive.

OK, 50 things is HARD. I don’t think I could come up with 50 things I did during the day. Seriously. So, here are my 32 wonderful things from today:

  1. Woke up on time
