Motivate Monday - Postivity, Exercise, Worry Less, Love, & Be Happy

     It's motivate time!!!  I look at Monday as a fresh start, a new day to begin something new or get better at what you are already doing.  Today is the day you can hit the "Reset" button. 
     So first off let's start by THINKING POSITIVE. Your attitude is everything! Being positive can turn your day around in a matter of seconds. I love this verse - "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you". (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ESV). There is a reason why God tells us to rejoice always and give thanks in ALL circumstances! 
     Second, EXERCISE daily!  Whether it's for your physical, mental, or emotional health, GET MOVING! Exercise is so therapeutic for you and can help you in more ways than you know. Try something like a 20 minute walk, yoga, bike ride, fitness class, or even swimming; I promise in time you will start to enjoy it and see the benefits.  
     Clean out that fridge and EAT HEALTHY. Go clean and green!  Avoid processed foods and fill up on healthy carbs and fats, fresh fruit and veggies, and lean protein. 
     STOP WORRYING. “So don’t ever worry about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34 CEB).  From my own experience, worry can be fever detrimental to your health. So STOP WORRYING. “Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks” (Philippians 4:6 NCV).
     Show some LOVE today!  “This is what I command you: that you love one another” (John 15:17 AMP). When you start taking the focus off of yourself and making it about others you'll start to see real change in yourself. 
     It's time to BE HAPPY.  Looking back at 1 Thessalonians, REJOICE ALWAYS!  We all have so much to be thankful for. I encourage you today that whenever a negative unhappy thought comes into your mind replace it with a positive happy thought. It's all about your mindset!
