How thinking positively sets you up for the day
How thinking positively sets you up for the day. Goodness that’s quite a statement but with a birthday this week I need to look on the bright side of things. The new year has brought out many practitioners quoting what you must do in order to achieve the most in your day. Some of them sound too energetic for me with lots of fresh air and moving about. Don’t get me wrong – I do know the benefit of those activities. It’s just when you want to make a positive change it has to be baby steps otherwise I’ve given up by lunch time! When you suffer from anxiety as I do, it is also difficult to see the bright side of things when you are feeling low.
So, what can we do about it?
Have something to look forward to:
My husband really likes Mondays and always has. I have found that quite difficult to understand at times. The reason? He plays five-a-side football at 5pm and loves it. So, he not only ends Mondays with a smile on his face but he’s fitter too!
I know that isn’t actually part of thinking but if you have something in your tummy to face the day, you will be more positive. This is one I’m going to have to work on as I’m more of a brunch girl.
Do that thing you’ve been putting off, first
Morning are traditionally the most productive time for people and armed with something to look forward to and full tum, you have the ingredients to face that job you dread. It won’t be half as bad as you imagined once you get going and just imagine how good you will feel when it is finished!
Take time out
Throughout the day make sure you take some time out for yourself, even if it is only for a few minutes. Grab a drink of your choice and stop, sit down and drink it carefully. Take a few deep breaths and reflect on all the great things you’ve dome already that day.
Share a smile and a well done
You don’t get arrested if you smile at someone even if you don’t know them you know. It can make them wonder whatever you are up to but it will provide them with some positive vibes. If you have work colleagues, take the opportunity to comment in a positive way either on them or their work. Being positive breeds positivity.
So, with all this smiling and jolliness in mind, the prompt for this week’s 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups is:
…thinking positively made me…
