Having a positive influence on those around you will change the way you feel
Over the years, however, I have become aware that even positive thinking may not be enough to help some people make the changes they desire. The trick here is to get out of your head and start taking positive action.
Rather than just keeping the positivity to yourself, you need to share it. Having a positive influence on those around you will change the way you feel inside. Just doing this can make you a happier person, even if you are dealing with very difficult issues.
Taking action means doing things that are good for you and never doing anything that could possibly harm you. That means, if you have been ill and not strong enough to take a run or even a walk, you need to wait until you are well before you start exercising. What you can do, in the meantime, is work with a physical therapist to help you get stronger in a gradual and healthy way.
