Start Your Day Off Perfectly with Positive Mind

Start Your Day Off Perfectly with Positive Mind

How do we start off our day so that it is enjoyable, exciting, fun, and loving? Thoughts! Yes, the thoughts we think carry an energy and ultimately create emotions and feelings within our bodies. The thoughts we think can make us happy or sad, energized or exhausted, loving or angry. Thoughts literally create our moods. Our moods then attract more of how we feel and thus what we experience during the day.

How do we begin to get a handle on all those thoughts we think all day long?

One of the fastest ways, is to begin in the morning with positive, loving, and grateful thoughts. When our bodies awaken each morning, often, we just start our day without much conscious thought about how we are feeling and what our intentions are for the day. What if, instead, we took a few minutes to consciously think about the day ahead of us. A day that we can create positively by using the power of our mind and the thoughts we are emitting.

One of the fastest ways to begin this process is being appreciative and grateful for all the world has to offer. Often, there are things in our lives that are not the way we want them to be and that can create challenges and frustrations. With a slight change in perception and approach, over time, a change in how we see our challenges can develop. We can become grateful for all the good things in our lives and hold a new perspective of issues we are facing.

Morning is a wonderful time to create a new approach on how to see the world. It is like New Year’s Eve each morning and the ability to think anew. Repetitive approaches of finding gratitude in the smallest of ways will eventually create changes within the everyday duties, obligations, and responsibilities that each of us have to complete.

Challenge to Listen to This Morning Meditation

Hay House is one of the most successful New Thought organizations in the world. It was founded by Louise Hay back in the 1980’s. In the attached video below produced by Hay House, Louise’s soft and gentle voice guides our thoughts to areas of gratitude and grace. She guides the listener to identify gratitude in so many parts of our lives that we often overlook, such as, turning on a faucet and having hot water easily pour out.

How often do we think about being grateful for that ease and convenience? As you listen to the guidance below, relax, think about how many of these things each of us have taken for granted, and then make a choice to become more conscious of being aware of all the good, all the conveniences, and all of the joy that is in our lives right now.

The best way to make a permanent change within your mind it to repeat something for approximately 21-30 days. So, take the challenge to listen to this morning meditation by Louise Hay for the next 3-4 weeks. Journal how you are feeling during the day as you begin this process. Watch over the next few weeks and identify areas of improvement in your life.

How is the result?

Do you feel happier? Do the things and people in your life seem less irritating? Are you more conscious of small things, such as a warm shower or a sunny day? Are you able to see a rainy day as a gift rather than a burden? Shifting the thoughts you think about, as you move through the parts of your day, to find what you can appreciate in it, will allow the heavier thoughts of anger, frustration, annoyance, and even revenge to float away like clouds in the sky.

Each of us control our own thoughts and learning that you have the power of thinking what you want, allows you to reframe events in your life to make the best out of everything that is happening to you, around you, and even in you. You are the power in your life and the thoughts you think will help you to use that power to create your own magical day.

Enjoy your life and know that you are in control of the thoughts you think. Those thoughts ultimately determine your emotions and how you feel and ultimately your life. Go forth and enjoy your day!

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

Think you have a boring life?

The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

2. Go Play with Kids

Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

3. Order a Hot Dog

While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

This will give you something to look forward to.

Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

13. People Watch

Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

People are infinitely interesting.

14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

15. Dance

You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
