How you first greet the day when you get out of bed determines how your day is going to go, be it positive or negative.
Knowing that your thoughts create your emotions and that we have total control over our thoughts, gives you the power to start your day on a super positive note each and every day. Here are a few ways to help you adjust your attitude and have a supper day.
Think about what truly makes you happy
Thoughts create emotions. Happy thoughts create happy emotions. It’s super simple but it’s so true – think about the things you love to do that make you happy. Just visualizing doing something that makes you happy is bound to make you actually feel happier in return.
Be grateful for what you have
Gratitude is one of the most important practices. It’s easy to get caught in the cycle of negative thinking and eventually forgetting how good you actually have it. Try spending some time in the morning to list out five things you are grateful for, it will automatically help shift your whole mindset and better prepare you for the day.
Look at something beautiful
A great way to shift your mood and become more peaceful and uplifted automatically is to look at something beautiful. Maybe it’s a flower, maybe it’s your husband or wife, or maybe it’s a painting that’s hanging in your room… whatever it is, take a minute or two just to appreciate its beauty. You will be amazed how quickly this tactic works to bring your mood way up!
Ask yourself “How can I make this day amazing?”
It’s a simple question but it’s so powerful. By simply asking yourself “How can I make today amazing?” you make yourself realize that you are in control of how your day goes and how you feel about it. Then, take action and do the things necessary to make it amazing!
Above all, Smile regardless of how you might feel at first
Even if you feel like you want to stay in bed for the entire day and mope around, don’t. Smile to yourself while looking at yourself in the mirror first thing in the morning. It is very hard to remain in a negative mood while smiling at yourself in the mirror for a minute or two, it changes your whole mood and outlook for the entire day.
Always remember you are the one in control of your thoughts and attitude. You ultimately decide how you are going to feel every day.
