Hello first day of Spring! If you’ve had that sluggish feeling of not wanting to do something that you know is good for you—today you can spring into a new attitude! 

During the winter months it’s easy to put off healthy food choices or being active. Now you can put winter behind you and do something!  Why not gather your family members and, instead of watching TV, play a game of tag! It’s fun, and a great way to get some moving. 

Games Then and Now
 
Besides tag, there are a lot of games you can play with family members outside to celebrate the first day of spring. Go old school and play hopscotch or four-square. Better yet, follow this link for more old school games as well as cool twists to make them fun to play today!

Today is National Common Courtesy Day, a day to practice saying “please” and “thank you.” When you show a kind attitude, you inspire others to do the same.

Today is also Absolutely Incredible Kid Day, so let someone know how fantastic they are!  And, be sure to say thank you when someone tells you how fantastic you are! 

Absolutely Incredible
 
What is absolutely incredible about your friends?  Pair up with a friend and talk about the positive things that make each of you absolutely incredible.

Get ready to be goofy!  It’s National Goof Off Day! What fun and silly things will you do today? 

When you play outside in the fresh air, it is the best way to boost your MOOD and attitude! As the weather warms, call a friend and ask to play at the park or go for a walk around the neighborhood. Find animal shapes in the clouds or take a bike ride.

Repeat these mantras today to get that positive attitude flowing!
Good things come to those who work hard.
Keep going when things get tough. 

Visualize. When things aren’t going your way, keep a positive attitude by visualizing yourself succeeding and achieving your goals. When Nelson Mandela was incarcerated—in a tiny cell that was just 6 feet wide–he kept his hopes up by visualizing himself being set free.

Play Your Mood Away
 
When things may not be going your way, play! This will take your mind off what's got you down. Move your body for a better attitude! Check out this link for ideas.

What has the power to change your attitude?  
Hint:  It’s spring, so smile!

Smiling changes your attitude.  If you have any doubts, the next time you feel down or sluggish, start smiling and think of positive thoughts—like laughing and playing outside—and  see what happens. You can’t help but have a better attitude when you smile.
