Waking Up Happy
I promise they are not hard! It’s all about the frame of mind!
Go to bed when you are tired
If your body is tired, your brain is tired as well. That way, you’re resting everything that you need to so it all works the best that it can the next day. And we’ve all been there in the morning when the sun rises and the rooster crows…and we just aren’t ready to get up because we stayed up too late. Don’t do that to yourself. Give your body and brain the rest it needs!
Give yourself something to look forward to
I don’t care what it is. A great breakfast, a morning jog, a cup of coffee by yourself in complete silence. Anything is fine. There is nothing more motivating that can bring simple happiness than when you get out of bed and do something for yourself that you’re excited for.
Read something that makes you smile
Did you know that filling your mind with happy thoughts when you wake up can be as simple as picking up a good book and read a few pages? If you have a book that makes you smile, put it on your nightstand and read it in the morning. And if you don’t, head to the local bookstore or Amazon and find one that can!
Have your outfit ready and waiting for you the night before
If you take the steps to have all your clothing already chosen and laid out and waiting for you, it’s just one less thing that you have to deal with in the AM. It’s just that simple. That way when everyone else is needing help starting their day in your family, you can smile knowing that you are already ahead of the game.
Waking up and give yourself a compliment
It’s just that simple. Once your eyes open and your brain is awake, say something nice about yourself. (out loud or in your head, either way) Not only will this give your brain a boost in the positive direction, but let’s be honest…you are pretty awesome!
Putting emphasis on starting your morning on a positive foot is really, really important. Why waste an entire day of your life moping around and being negative when you easily turn that from upside down?
And while these tips work great for you, just know that they work great for anyone of any age as well. Your kids and spouse may see great benefits from trying these simple tips, too. Can you imagine if literally, everyone in your house was able to wake up every single day with a smile on their face and happy thoughts in their head? That would be epic!
