Good Day! How are you doing? I hope that you well and oh so good. Today is the 11th of July 2008 and that of course means that it is the Friday edition of the Morning Cruise…ooh so it’s Friday I’m feeling pretty good and I’m so sure that you are too no doubt and for some reason if you find that you are a little sad and down then the Morning Cruise will try it’s utmost best to make you feel good and warm…don’t shoot me for what I’m about to say, but I think it’s a beautiful day…so are you one of those people that before the weekend even started you have all these plans or do you just sit back and take it as it comes…I like taking things as they come tho..

Tips of the Day:

Need to break out of a bad mood? Try these tips for cheering yourself up as I’ve good 6 mood busters…

1. Think Fast - Rapid-fire thinking makes people feel happier and more energetic, confident and creative—even if they are thinking about something sad. Stuck in a negative groove? Try this mental gymnastic: Quickly come up with five solutions to your problem—good, bad or in between, just do it fast.

2. Shake a Leg - Aerobic exercise is the single best way [to escape] a bad mood and increase your energy—and all it takes is ten minutes.

3. Act Extroverted - Feeling grumpy or gloomy? Then get out and act as if you're on top of the world! Being gregarious, assertive or adventurous can actually improve your mood—even if you're shy. To see if acting like an extrovert can turn your frown around, smile at strangers, talk to neighbors, voice an opinion during a discussion or ask a question in a meeting at work.

4. Give Yourself a Treat - When little annoyances darken your day, chase the cloud away with a little retail therapy. Even the tiniest treat may pick up your mood.

5. Check In with a Cheery Friend - Moods are contagious. So being around someone with a sunny disposition or who makes you laugh may give you an attitude adjustment. But don't use a get-together for a gripe session. This will only reinforce your bad feeling—and drag your friend down.

6. Lend a Helping Hand - Random acts of kindness, such as giving money to a homeless person, bringing soup to a sick neighbor or making photocopies for a time-pressed co-worker, can make you feel happier.Giving makes you feel good yourself, particularly when other people appreciate your efforts.

Quote of the Day:
William Arthur Ward - If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it

It’s time for me to love and leave you. You must have oh so super Friday. Let’s chat again tomorrow…Much Love…Peace.
