Patience

Name two new things you learned or can do this week. For me, printing and cursive writing also to walk without leaning.

Positivity

Pick a subject you are passionate about and focus on it mentally and physically all week. For me it was nature, my hummingbirds.

Practice

Spend 20-30 minutes each day on an approved therapy, and reward yourself when finished. For me, a reward is chocolate!

Practice

Listen to 30 minutes of positive and inspiring speakers. For me, it’s Zig Ziglar.

Positivity

Ask someone this week — What makes them happy? I had someone answer “a good cup of coffee.”

Patience

Name one thing you want to stop doing, because it isn’t helping you with patience. For me, it’s easily getting frustrated.

Determine what gets you excited and motivated in life, and remember it, then use it often!

Compliment three people this week and see how good it feels.
