Self-Improvement Tips To Start Your Day In The Right Way
The way you start your day often sets the tone for the rest of the day. If you start your day in the right way – happy and relaxed – you’ll greatly increase your chances of a healthy happy relaxed day. And by the way, relaxed, doesn’t mean unproductive, at the contrary even, when you are relaxed you are probably much more productive in comparison with performing the same task when you are stressed. But if the alarm makes you jump out of bed, and you start to rush like you’re in a race, guess how that day will turn out in comparison…
Therefore, create new habits for a healthy morning routine. The following six self-improvement tips are a good way to start your day in the right way…;)
Self-Improvement Tip #1 — Choose How You Start Your Day
You can choose to start your day grumpy, irritable and stressed or you can choose to start your day grateful and relaxed that you were given another chance to enjoy life and love. The choice is always yours. Choose to wake up declaring out loud a few things you are grateful for and watch how this daily habit changes your day and your life. You can also choose to start your day with writing in your journal, meditating, fitness, or any other routine that makes you feel you’ve started your day in the best way possible.
Self-Improvement Tip #2 — Keep Positive People Close to You
Your attitude will directly affect your day; so if you are being sour and negative, your day will spiral into a sour and negative day. Keep positive friends close by and reel them in when you need a boost. Don’t be ashamed of your bad moods, just take responsibility for them. Grab a friend, talk about it and then let it go.
Self-Improvement Tip #3 — Keep Negative People out of Your Bubble
You will never rid yourself of all the negative people in your life. After all, some of them are your employers, co-workers and family members. You can, however, keep them at a distance while enclosing yourself in a more protected bubble. You don’t have to let their negativity into your space. Make a choice to slowly distance yourself from them and know that their negativity has nothing to do with you; it’s their stuff, don’t own it for yourself.
Self-Improvement Tip #4 — Choose Your Filters Wisely
If you read negative stories, watch the news and get involved in gossip, you will most likely end up with negative thoughts. After all, negative stories are what so much of these things focuses on these days. Choose what books, music and television you let in. Stop ‘hanging out’ on social networking gossip sites and take responsibility for your own actions.
Self-Improvement Tip #6 — Listen to the Right Kinds of Music
No need for binaural beats or brainwave entrainment mp3’s, just some uplifting music will change your brain waves and fast music will give you a boost of adrenaline too. If you are feeling low, pop on some dance tunes and watch how quickly your toes will begin to tap.
Self-Improvement Tip #7 — Start Your Day the Right Way
Start your day the right way with one positive thought, affirmation or conversation. If you read something positive, think something positive or say something positive, your day will be that much better and you will have done this by your own power.
