5 MINDFUL ACTIONS TO GET YOUR DAY STARTED Have there ever been mornings when you wished you could just snooze back to sleep? We’ve all probably been there, I believe, at some point or another. If only I had more inspiration and encouragement, I often think, maybe this would be a better day. I continued making these justifications for months, but I got nowhere.

I eventually came to the conclusion that the change I was seeking was standing right in front of me. The five mind-altering things you may do to start your day aren’t particularly complicated; in fact, you can complete them all by yourself. I hope you’ll find plenty of inspiration on this list to help you get through even the hardest days!

1. Make a loud blessing.

Yes, even on a Monday morning when you have enough work to keep you busy for the next two weeks, I’m asking you to say a blessing aloud. I’m not promising a great day or that you won’t have some Monday blues, but I am telling you that you have the ability to alter how you begin your day.

I want you to say a prayer before you get out of bed to start. Humans frequently search for the next big thing, which puts us in an ongoing competitive situation with the rest of the world. We often overlook some of the biggest benefits that are all around us because we are so ready to focus on our shortcomings and the things we lack. Simple blessings include things like having a bed, running water, a job, or a cup of coffee. Don’t ignore them!

2. Express something flattering about yourself in the mirror.

Being comfortable with who we are and how we appear is, in my opinion, one of our greatest problems in life. We are our own harshest critics because we are always on the lookout for a problem. I want you to offer yourself a complement when you look in the mirror today and every day going forward. That’s all there is to it.

3. Express your love to someone.

How frequently have you read a heartbreaking tale where someone fought with a loved one, and that person passed away? We never know when our battles will finish, even though life is a beautiful fight. I would hate for you to lose the chance to let someone know you care because your own ego or your busy schedule prevented you from giving them even two seconds of your time.

Send a text, make a call, send an email, post something on Facebook, use Twitter, or write it on someone’s wall if they aren’t available to talk. Just make sure you do it somehow!

4. Workout, even for a minute.

I believe that one of the main barriers preventing exercise is a lack of time. It doesn’t make me feel good to say that I’ve also been a victim of this. You might want to give that a shot and see if it helps you; I’ve found that occasionally reading or listening to encouraging remarks helps me reawaken my desire to exercise. Do some moderate stretching, jog while standing still, or lift some hand weights even if you just have two minutes to spare. Even a small endorphin rush could be enough to carry you through a difficult day.

5. Confide in yourself.

I want you to hear me out before you decide I’m insane and want you to walk around constantly talking to yourself. Giving myself a little motivation to get through the day when I get into my car every morning is something I’ve been working on. I might make a comment about how I’m going to kill my meetings or how my clients benefit from my work since it improves their quality of life. The challenging stuff doesn’t seem as bad to me when I’m fired up about what I’m about to undertake.
