For example, replace dreading thoughts of a gym trip with rewarding thoughts like how you’ll get to listen to your favorite podcast or playlist and work off some of the day’s stress. Get yourself excited for an outdoor walk by imagining the beautiful vistas you'll see and the invigorating effects of fresh air and sweating.
