Last week I met with a friend and we were discussing how we start our day, from choosing what we read first thing in the morning, to what foods we put in our bodies. We both realized that scrolling through our Facebook and Twitter news feeds was sending our attitudes, and also the day, into a downward spiral. I told her, “Ok, I’m not scrolling through my Facebook and Twitter news feeds for the month of February!” She agreed that she would do the same.
Neither of us are trying to hide out and ignore what is going on around us. We just need a break.
I’ve been getting angry with myself for getting sidetracked from reaching my own person and business goals. That’s important to me. It’s something I can control. I can’t control all that’s going on in the world. I can only do my part of taking care of myself, my family and the community around me. The issues I can make a call, or write a letter about, I do. But to have my own life go to ruins because I’m sidetracked on someone else’s agenda is not going to happen.
Share what you’re doing for your own attitude adjustment.
