    1. As I went about my morning routine, I picked up the floss and flossed one tooth. I thought to myself, “Well, even if everything else goes wrong today, I’m not a total failure. At least I flossed one tooth.” I smiled in the mirror and said one word to myself: “Victory!”

      This is sort of hilarious but generally true, at least for me.

      I tried something like this ages ago that just involved telling myself to smile 5 times a day to feel better and it made smiling into a fairly regular habit.
