Does that seem a little daunting – making every single day a great day? Perhaps your life has been filled with not so great days lately, so you’re a little apprehensive about making them great – surely that has nothing to do with you?! Well, it does. You’re the one who’s in control of their day for the most part, and you’re the one who is in control of your mood and how you feel. When you realize this, you can start taking the steps needed to make every single day a great day.
Read on to find out how you can do it…
Start The Day Off With A Routine You Love
The way we start the day can directly affect how the rest of the day goes. If you start the day off by snoozing your alarm 7 times and not wanting to get up, then having to rush to get ready for the day, it wouldn’t be ridiculous to assume that the rest of the day is going to go in that same vein. Instead, start the day by getting up a little earlier, making yourself a breakfast you love, and perhaps reading a little bit of a motivational book. The more you enjoy your morning routine, the better days you’ll have!
Journaling is a great way to get down your feelings, whether you write in it in the morning or at another time of day. You can get all of your stresses out of your head, notice patterns in the way you feel, and see if something keeps on cropping up that you can work on to make your life better. Sites like Feed Your Mind talk about ways you can use hardships to your advantage, and when you journal you can do this too. Looking at your hardships you can figure out what lessons can be learned from them, and how they have made you a better person.
Choose How You Want To Feel
Don’t get up in the morning and let the day dictate how you’re going to feel. It’s like walking on egg shells! Instead, choose how you want to feel. Get up and simply tell yourself you’re going to be happy and have a great day. Smile, even if you don’t feel like it. It makes the world of difference!
Visualize The Day
Visualize the day in your mind before you get up and do anything. The better you can picture what you’re going to do and how it’s going to go, the more chance you have of meeting all of your goals!
Make The Time To Exercise
Exercise releases feel good hormones, makes us look great, and keeps us healthy in the long term. Making time for it, even if it’s just a walk in the sun, is crucial.
Reflect Back On The Day Before Bed
Instead of simply going to sleep, reflect back on the day before you drop off. Apps like Reflectly can help with this. It’s easy to forget all of the great things that have happened to us on a daily basis if we don’t think about them and show gratitude for them before bed!
