There are times when I feel down, working full time, blogging and trying to figure out what life is all about has me feeling down at times!
It’s so easy to dwell on the negatives of life, the rainy British summers, housework getting on top of us. However, there are ways you can practice being thankful for everything that you do have. By turning our focus to the positive and fabulous things we have around us can really change our outlook.
THINK OF 3 THINGS THAT BRING YOU HAPPINESS AS SOON AS YOU WAKEN
It is tough if, like me, your alarm goes off on a Monday morning at 5.45am and what you really want to do is turn over an go back to sleep! Instead, try thinking of three things to be thankful for. For example, your family, your husband/wife, your children, your parents, your friends, your health etc.
You can practice mediation on a daily basis. A guided mediation is a great way to get the most of it. You can download free guided meditations from YouTube or app for your phone.
SMILE AND THE WORLD SMILES WITH YOU
Believe it or not, it has scientifically been proven that smiling can increase your levels of happiness and relaxation! Smile as often as you can, smiling as soon as you get up out of bed will lead to a great day!
You can get so much joy from helping others. If you have some free time why not help others. You don’t even have to go out the door. If you register with www.helpfromhome.org you can help change the world with micro-volunteering.
