Champion talk is easy. We are surrounded by people who say “chin up kiddo” without having any idea just how rotten we might feel sometimes. It’s hard when you’re in a rut to find things to smile about.
A mate of mine has a hashtag #365smiles, If you’re on Instagram go check it out, you should also have a look at his blog Aussielicious. It’s a really great idea and a great way to find something to appreciate everyday. For me keeping my mind and heart healthy and keeping depression at bay is a daily battle and little things like this are a great way to remind me to be grateful.
Waking up in the morning and getting out of bed with purpose is how I try to start each day. I’ve started going to gym before work now and this gives me a really great reason to start the day actively and purposefully. But before I climb out of my sheets and pick out a jockstrap for the day I like to remind myself of the other things I have to look forward to that day no matter how small or unimportant.
