You can choose what kind of day you want to have. Have you ever walked into a shift and heard someone say “just turn around now” because it’s so busy? Or you look at the schedule and see that you’re working with people you don’t always mesh with? Or maybe something’s not going great your in personal life, you’re a little sick, or you didn’t get enough sleep before your shift?
It’s easy when these circumstances arise to walk into a shift saying, “This is gonna be a lousy day. Guess I just have to get through it”.
Simply having a positive attitude and stating, “Today WILL be a good day!” can help to make it so. You can’t always control the circumstances around you, but you can almost always control your attitude about those circumstances.
WEEKLY WELLNESS TIP: This week, try to have a positive attitude going into each shift. Before you walk in the door, actually say out loud, “today is going to be a great day”. And then make it so!
