A better week!

Here is a great diet tip: 

Some of the things to eliminate from your diet that pull your attitude down: Gossip, fear, worry, being resentful and anger. 

Spend a week outlining what's good about your life, what you're thankful for, and work to cut back on gossip, fear, worry resentment and anger -- I guarantee you'll have a better week! - Susan Valaskovic
