On these dark wintery days, everything looks a little dreary. So remind them to bring as much light as they can into their homes. Open the drapes, clean the light fixtures, and add some splashes of cheerful color in the form of throw pillows, rugs, shower curtains, towels, and a vase of bright silk flowers here and there.
You might want to brighten up your own presentation – with clothing in a cheerful color, and of course with a bright smile and a cheerful, upbeat attitude.
It’s easy to fall into the gloomy attitude that so many have these days. Attitudes are, after all, as contagious as a flu bug.
So… resist. Take whatever preventative medicine you need to keep your own spirits up. Let your attitude be the one that spreads like the flu!
What kind of medicine do you need? For me, a gloomy attitude can be cured by some really “hoppin’” music. I choose the kind that makes me sing along and then get up and dance around my office, even though it makes my dogs wonder if I’ve lost my mind.
A funny video clip or a good joke can also do the trick, since it’s impossible to be gloomy while laughing.
I watched a funny fishing bloopers clip recently that had me laughing out loud. You might like it too: http://www.snotr.com/video/5987
If you have some funny clips that always make you laugh, put them in a file where you can find them any time you need a “pick-me-up.”
