I was reading a great article this morning by a type 1 diabetic and how she focuses on keeping positive in her continued battle with diabetes. http://diabeteshealth.com/read/2014/07/25/833...
Here was one of my favorite parts. "This next one is probably the key to living a positive life. I laugh. I laugh a lot. While I owe a lot of this to my hilarious husband (I always say he should have been a comedian), I also like to try to make him laugh as often as possible. Just the other day I pretended to be leaving for work without wearing any pants. I walked right through the living room half dressed with my purse on my shoulder, saying goodbye while acting totally serious to get him to crack a smile. Making others laugh is huge for your soul. I know it was a silly thing to do, but those silly things, they really make me happy. Allow yourself to be a little silly and see how much happier you are. Humor is right up there with insulin in keeping me alive and smiling"
I think it struck a cord because it's so true. My husband always asks me if I'm ready to go while I'm half dressed. I think one day I might pull this on him to return the laugh favor.
So what are your ways to keep positive? What helps you face every day with pep in your step instead of doom and gloom? Do you have a routine? A favorite way of doing something that just keeps you on the up?
