Many of us believe that the level of happiness we experience each day is subject to chance and that we are just recipients of fate. However, we do play a larger role in creating our day than we might imagine.
By understanding that we are in control of our thoughts, attitude and outlook, we can begin living more consciously and enjoying each day more fully. Below are some suggestions for creating a beautiful day and life.
Make an effort to get inspired. Instead of waiting for inspiration to come to us, we can actively give ourselves a boost of motivation. By reading, listening or watching something inspirational, we will infuse our present mindset with uplifting guidance and joy.
See the good. When we are focused on the good, we are less likely to let any undesirable events ruin our day. Instead, we put our attention on giving, not taking anything for granted, and counting our blessings. Then, we are more inclined to see the good in people, things and situations.
Surround yourself with support. It is important to limit our exposure to negativity as much as possible, as this energy can pull us down. Instead, we’ll want to surround ourselves with positive support, encouragement and love while spreading these gifts to others as well. This will help us feel good about ourselves and attract the things and experiences we desire.
Take a holistic approach. Healthy living is not only about caring for our minds and emotions, but about caring for our physical needs as well. We need to be sure to eat something nutritious, exercise our bodies and take breaks throughout the day.
Get your rest. Many of us find it hard to rest because of all the ‘to do’ lists, and worries we take to bed at night. For instance, we may rehash an argument we had that day, or worry about what could go wrong at work tomorrow. However, sleep is a time to rest from daily stresses and think of only positive things to come, which helps us prepare for the day ahead.
Be proactive. When we are proactive and taking actions toward our goals; we are less likely to passively walk around reacting to people or circumstances. Of course, nothing and no one is perfect and sometimes we need to experience loss and defeat in order to grow. These uncomfortable growth experiences can be a way of making us better people by helping us learn patience, forgiveness and perseverance. This allows us the best chance for creating a better day and future.
Create a joyful day, by feeding your mind with positive images, thoughts and ideas.
