- Change your morning routine (change the order in which you do things)
- Drink a different flavour coffee
- Make a different style of eggs

- Call a friend to plan dinner (have a plan of something to look forward to)
- Eat/try a different meal at your favourite restaurant
- Sign up for an interest course at your local college or a one day workshop
Tips for staying positive - from Laura
1. Write a list of things you do "just for you" and make sure that you complete at least one activity daily (examples: read a magazine, buy a new shirt, have a bath, go for a walk, play in the snow/sand/leaves/sun, turn your phone off,... anything that is only about you)
2. Practice Gratitude - Make a list of ten things currently in your life that you are Thankful for (this may be challenging to start, but will flow once you begin writing). Read this list every morning and every night to remind yourself of the "gifts" that you have to be thankful for ...and know this : It could always be worse
3. Create a list of your top 5 accomplishments or proudest moments. Take note of the smaller things that you accomplish daily and give yourself some credit for those as well. Try to be creative while making this - maybe make a poster, paint or draw your list to make it official.
4. Ask for help when you need it. You don't have to know everything or do everything on your own.
5. Call your Life Coach
