Frustrated about having another end of day headache, I took a different approach. I "willed" myself to cure my headache by mentally telling myself that I am in control of my body. If I could make the headache go away for five minutes, I would treat myself with a Dove chocolate that was waiting in my pocket.
It worked! Maybe carrying around a small reward for oneself is just the incentive we need to get motivated.
By the way, the message on my chocolate wrapper said:
When two hearts race, both win.What a lovely expression!
