A quick guide to creating an amazing day
Do you know these days, that from the moment you wake up, everything seems to go wrong? Well, today was one of those days for me. I woke up from the alarm of my boyfriend, about half an hour before my own alarm.
When I finally started to fall asleep again, he entered the room because he needed something. I can tell you this was not good for my mood!
I don’t like Mondays so much. Is the longest day of the week (OK, I know it’s not, but often it feels that way). Starting like that really made me apprehend my day. When I got up things didn’t get better. And I noticed I was thinking things like: “OMG, this day is going to be loooooong, and hard, and oooohhh, I want this day to be over, but it’s only just starting...” And then I stopped myself. I realised I was only going to make things worse. And that’s really not what I wanted! I wanted the day to be nice and easy. I even wanted it to be amazing! So I chose to make it so.
Choose to make your day amazing
Yes, I chose to, because it really is a choice! You can choose to stay in your bad mood the whole day, or choose to do things differently. Here’s what I did: I stopped my negative thoughts about the day. Then I started thinking happy thoughts about my day. About how I wanted it to be. My next step was to start looking for things to appreciate, things to be grateful for. These three steps made me feel so much better that I decided to take it further and to stop any negativity today, about anything. So not only was I not complaining, I also wasn’t thinking any negative thoughts. Also thoughts that don’t seem very important, but that ARE negative, like “I don’t have enough time to do all this”. And when my colleagues were negative about something, I answered in a positive way. Oh, and if I found a negative thought that wanted to enter my mind I stopped it.
With these four easy steps my day became amazing! Nothing really special happened, but I felt great, the day went by very quickly (this Monday turned out to be not that long after all ;-) ) and I was really happy. For a Monday, this was AMAZING!
