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!

5 Reasons Why Tidying Your Room Can Change Your Life

5 Reasons Why Tidying Your Room Can Change Your Life

You step into your room and stumble upon something hard that hurts you, you have to tiptoe your way to your bed because there is not enough space to walk, your bed has huge piles of clothing spread everywhere, your table groans under books, newspapers, cups, and all other kinds of stuff, and your closet looks like a ransacked outlet store post-Black Friday. If that’s a common scenario for you, then you are living in a space that disrupts your ability to use it well.

Your room is the place where you start and end your day. Whether you are aware of it or not, the physical space in which you live and spend a lot of your time has an important role to play in how we behave. Having a bedroom in such a messed state can have a variety of effects on your life. Our mind cannot live completely independent from our environment; therefore, keeping the room tidy, organized, and clean is significant. A straightened room with a made bed and pile-free floor will not only bring happiness and organization to your life, it will also change your life!

Video Summary

Here are five reasons that can spark the desire in you for tidying your room to create change in your life.

1. You will know what resources you have

Do you find yourself looking everywhere for your matching bracelet or clothes when going for a party or out with friends? Or does it happen that you buy a pair of pants, only to find out later that you had a better one to match the shirt you were wearing to the event? Keeping your bedroom tidy will let you know what things you have – the shoes, clothes, jewelry, books, magazines, and stationary – that are among your belongings so that you don’t have to rummage for them everywhere or go and buy new things when you already have better alternatives.

2. Your thoughts will also be tidied up

Tidying your place also tidies up your mind. It is suggested by psychologists that a messy room is a representation of a disorganized mental state. When one is tidy and organized it also builds into their life, helping them in everything.

As Marie Kondo states in The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, “From the moment you start tidying, you will be compelled to reset your life. As a result, your life will start to change.” So, if you want to bring a change to your life, go ahead with cleaning and organizing your space and start a tidying marathon.

3. Tidying your room can save you time

Tidying your room and organizing your space not only lets you know about the stuff that you have, but it can also save you a lot of time, since you will know where to find something when you need it. Now, when you wake up early in the morning, you don’t have to search frantically as minutes tick by for your special pair of shoes, your watch, or the blouse that you really wanted to wear. The start of your day will be a smooth one instead, and you will be able to make it out of the door to your work or college on time.

4. You will be more social

Would you like your friend to see your messy room? I would probably be too embarrassed if my friend came over and got to look at my room in a messy state. When you are ashamed of the state of your bedroom, it is less likelihood that you invite anyone over. On the other hand, when your house is clean, you are ready for company and are also more likely to invite or welcome someone over on the spur of the moment. Tidying your room helps in preventing the creation of a boundary around you; therefore, you will become more social.

5. Your health will improve

Tidying your room also bring with itself some health benefits. When your bedroom becomes a peaceful and ordered place with no clutter around, you will feel less stressed and less distracted. This means you can spend some relaxing time before bed and go to sleep calmly. From studies, it has been found that those who have cluttered bedrooms full of their hoardings take a long time to fall asleep and their sleep quality is also poor enough that it leads an increase chance of depression and stress. It’s clear enough. Tidying your room will have a positive effect on your health and the thought of going to the bedroom would be a pleasant and calming one. Not just this, but a tidy room will no more be home to bacteria and viruses that can compromise your health.

Conclusion

No doubt, cleaning up a really messy room and streamlining your surroundings is no easy job but, with a little determination and taking a methodical approach, it is totally doable. You just need to get started. Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, one of New York Times Best Sellers, can serve as the perfect manual to guide you. Happy Cleaning!
