    • Spend time with positive people who enhance your life, not those who bring you down.
    • Remember that you can't please everyone. The sooner you stop trying to please a person who really doesn't realize your worth, the less frustrated you'll be (note: don't try this with your boss).

    • Shut off the TV. The news thrives on getting people's attention and that means reports commonly focus on crime, drops in the stock market, tax hikes and senators crying about their affairs. That's enough to make anyone feel "doom and gloom." Shut it off and do something productive. Don't worry, you won't miss anything.

    • Stick positive sticky notes around your house. It may sound goofy but who cares, just take them down when company come if you are worried about what they'll think or say.
