Having a good day or a bad day is completely unpredictable. But you can somewhat make your bad day a better day by following some rituals. Your mentality in the morning sets the mood for the rest of the day.
I feel that everyone should do this because being positive and spreading positive vibes is more important these days. It not only makes you happy but also makes people around you happy.
So lets get started,
1. Wake up to something you love
Now this can be ANYTHING you love. it can be your mobile phone, a cup of coffee/ tea, morning walk, cuddling in bed, cuddling with your pet or whatever. Just give some “ME” time and do what you love first thing in the morning.
But also keep in mind to set a time for this, because you don’t want to run late. If you can afford just 2 mins of your time to one thing you love, do it first thing in the morning. I always like to have a cup of tea when I wake up, and this keeps me energized throughout the day and keeps me active.
So do something which you look forward to everyday!
2. Plan your day
Even if you are a stay-at-home-mom, plan your day. Have a to-do list for your day and stay disciplined and consistent. Nothing feels better than the satisfaction you get at the end of the day when you have done everything on the to-do list.
I usually have a notepad to write down my ideas and plans and I also maintain a planner with the to-do list. I make sure that I stay consistent and it makes my day productive and happier. There are a lot of applications on the internet to plan your day but I personally prefer the old school way.
3.Have a healthy breakfast
NEVER SKIP YOUR BREAKFAST. This makes a huge impact on your mental and physical health. When you start having an early and healthy breakfast everyday, you will surely notice a huge difference in your lifestyle.
I usually have porridge and boiled egg for breakfast but not always. And I also make sure I have a heavy breakfast so that i feel full and I have the energy to start the day. I have also noticed that I complete most of the work successfully during the mornings because I feel energetic and happier.
4. Spend some time for exercise
This is something most of us don’t do or neglect in our life. I usually dedicate 20 mins any time during the day for my workout. It can be a brisk walk, climbing the stairs, yoga or any form of exercise. But I make sure I do it continuously for 20 mins a day.
5. Inspirational quotes
Last but not the least, I try and spend at least 15 mins a day to talk to someone who inspires me a lot. I spend time with my husband and I get inspired talking to him because I personally feel that he can spread positive vibes and gives me ideas and insights and teaches me how to approach certain situations in life.
You can always go to the internet and search for motivational quotes, there are a lot of quotes in pinterest or talk to someone who motivates and inspires you. Some people might find it weird to read motivational quotes but I feel it actually works because whoever you are, you need an inspiration and motivation to keep going.
Alright, hopefully you got some ideas or inspirations through this post and how to make yourself happy everyday. Practice makes a man perfect and by following these simple rituals in your life everyday you can make your life happier.
I would also like to tell you, if you are always thinking of not-so-good-things, you will continue to to do that. But if you practice to keep yourself happy, it will definitely become a way of life.
Thank you so much for reading. Stay positive.
