The Best Ways to Have a Great Day

These are axioms that I use to have a great day each day. Hope some of this list prods you along this path as well. Add specific ones for your lifestyle and delete any that don't resonate with you. But keep on trying to have great days.

  1. Believe in yourself.
  2. Inspirational books guide your dreams. Tonight's dreams determine tomorrow's actions. Tomorrow's actions create your reality.
  3. Avoid negative people. Especially those related to you. They'll squeeze your dream right out of you.
  4. Get motivated. Books, mentors, quotes, pictures, audios, movies, the Bible are all great motivators.
  5. Visualize your perfect day, perfect career, perfect mate.
  6. Take action. Daily.
  7. Forgive others. It has nothing to do with releasing them from their consequences. It has everything to do with not poisoning yourself.
  8. Write down your goals. The writing down helps you achieve them.
  9. Get quality sleep each night.
  10. Help someone else.
  11. Laugh.
  12. Eat healthy foods like fresh raw veggies and lean protein.
  13. Smile. A lot.
  14. Exercise more.
  15. Breathe deeper.
  16. Get outside and absorb some Vitamin D.
  17. Drink clean water. Shower in clean water. Cook with clean water.
  18. Take time out for you, even if only the first fifteen minutes of each day. You'll feel less like a martyr.
  19. Stretch more. Even if you interrupt your work every twenty-five minutes or so for five side bends to the right then left, it'll do your body good.
  20. Relax more. I have downtime each night except for those rare occasions where I pull a twelve-hour day of marathon copyediting.
  21. Don't take life too seriously.
  22. Dance. Even if it is alone in your kitchen.
  23. Have fun.
  24. NEVER give up on your dreams or yourself.
May many successes fill your days.
