HOW TO HAVE A BETTER DAY

lds mom and toddler

MORMON MOMTAKE CARE OF YOUR SOUL FIRST-For me I do this by starting my morning of with a prayer to help me get through the day.  This can be different for everyone.  Maybe if you’re not a religious person, and you prefer meditation…whatever it is you do that takes care of your spiritual needs, do it first thing to set the tone of your day

DO MAKEUP-This makes a huge difference.  Even if you just apply the basics, makeup helps you feel put together and in control of your life 🙂

MAKE BED-I read once that this is one thing that “successful” people do every day-take it with a grain of salt-if I don’t make my bed in the morning, the thought of an untidy bed lingers and nags at the back of my mind for the rest of the day.  By making your bed you’re in a way telling your subconscious “sleep is over” and you will have energy during the day rather than lingering in “sleep mode”

GET DRESSED-This has the similar effect as making your bed.  If you stay in your pjs all day (I’ll admit I’ve had many of those days just in the last week) your mind will never let go of wanting to go back to bed.  Even if I’m not sleepy, when I stay in my pajamas all day I just feel sluggish

MAKE A TO-DO LIST-This doesn’t haven’t to be anything elaborate.  Sometimes my list only consists of ‘make a smoothie’ ‘read a book with Kylie’
While on other days when I have a ton to do, organizing it into a list helps my mind not feel so overwhelmed, and I feel so accomplished as I check the items off the list.

THANK YOU LIST-There is already so much negativity in the world, why add to it?  There is always, always, ALWAYS something to be grateful for each and every day.  Maybe it was hitting a green light at the right time.  Or an unexpected phone call from someone close to you.  Or maybe that smoothie was just amazing!  Write them down at the end of your day.  And be specific to that day.  It will amaze you what changes come over your attitude and outlook on life from day to day.

On that note, HAPPY THANKSGIVING (week).  I hope ya’ll are having a wonderful one.  Remember this is a time to be happy and thankful.  Not to stress about what table cloth to put on the dinner table 😉

XOXO
