Have you ever said or done something you regretted and fretted about it for days or weeks? But despite replaying and reliving the event over and over again in your head, the outcome was not what you intended.
Besides National Peppermint Patty Day, National Make a Friend Day and National Inventor’s Day, February 11 is also Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk Day. While the origins of this annual “holiday” are unknown, today serves as an important reminder that despite the fact we all make mistakes, we should learn from them and move forward with a more positive attitude. No matter what life throws at you, remaining optimistic and reducing negative thoughts is key. In fact, studies have shown that people who see the glass half full,live longer! Positive thinkers have lower rates of depression and distress, reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease and are better equipped to cope with hardships when and if they come.
So it’s time to have a little heart-to-heart with you today and give yourself a break! Having a positive attitude today can help protect you tomorrow.
