Reminder: You are in control of your thoughts.
You have the power to turn a negative thought into a positive. Sometimes this work can take a little extra effort, but it's always possible.
Affirmations, mantras and inspirational quotes are terrific tools to use when your consciousness is cloudy. Reminding yourself that there's always a light at the end of the tunnel can be a really effective way to power through hard times. In case of dark days, we've rounded up 16 of our favorite words that lift our spirits up.
