Since we here at Jillfit are currently in the middle of our Mindset Makeover Program, I thought I would share my favorite websites to visit when I am in need of an attitude adjustment.
Although I feel like my way of looking at things has improved dramatically (bye-bye victimhood), there are days when things are, well, kinda crappy. I wake up in a foul mood, my computer crashes, I get stressed because the house is a mess, etc. etc. Even though my mindset has changed, it doesn’t mean that these things don’t still happen; and while I do a pretty good job of recognizing when I’m falling into the “oh woe is me” trap or the blame game, there are still times when I need a little mental wake-up call. These sites help get me there.
Without further adieu:
- Jillfit Physiques – www.jillfit.com: Well, duh.
- Marc and Angel Hack Life – www.marcandangel.com: I LOVE this site, almost as much as Jillfit.
- The Daily Love – www.thedailylove.com: another goodie – love the daily quotes and affirmations.
- ZenHabits – www.zenhabits.net – getting in touch with your inner Zen and learning to live simply.
- Deliberate Receiving – www.deliberateblog.com: a no-nonsense look at the Law of Attraction
- Daring to Live Fully – www.daringtolivefully.com: offers practical tips on creativity, productivity, and simply getting the most out of life.
- Susan Sly – www.susansly.com/blog: I became exposed to Susan Sly through a new business my significant other and I started several months ago. She does a great job empowering women to be the best they can be with a focus on love, faith, giving and gratitude.
- Ordinary Courage – http://www.ordinarycourage.com/: Brene Brown’s blog. Brown is the author of The Gifts of Imperfection, a book that helped me break out of the perfectionist trap.
- GodVine – www.godvine.com: I can always find something here to make me smile, inspire me and/or make me realize how many things I have to be grateful for.
- Bug Says – http://bugsays.wordpress.com/: Ok, while this isn’t necessarily a “mindset makeover” site, it does make me laugh out loud every time I read it, which is great for the psyche (which no doubt causes a good mindset change) . Bug details her and brother Tank’s adventures in life, doggie daycare and training for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Happy surfing and mindset shifting !
