The Riran Project gives 22 tips to wake up feeling great. Previously, I posted about how to get yourself out of bed at 5:00 AM. The Riran Project takes it a step further and gives some insight about how to wake up with a great attitude. The Riran Project’s tips focus on improved happiness due to higher levels of self-esteem:
Get involved in work and activities you love.
It’s hard to feel good about yourself if your days are spent in work you hate. Self-esteem flourishes when you are engaged in work and activities that you enjoy and make you feel valuable. And even if you’re not in a position to make immediate changes in your career, you can still devote some of your leisure time to enjoyable hobbies or activities.
Start small and do a task you can accomplish easily.
There’s no faster way to build self-esteem than to add yet another accomplishment to your roster. It always feels good to get something crossed off our to-do list. And it doesn’t necessarily have to consist of monumental accomplishments.
Be your own cheerleader.
The energy and enthusiasm of a cheerleader is necessary in order to make the radical emotional changes required to raise your self-esteem. Learn how to enjoy a few minutes of self-congratulations instead of jumping right into the next task as if nothing happened, or dismissing it as meaningless. It does mean something. Being your own cheerleader isn’t silly, it’s smart and contagious.
