5 Ways To Brighten Up Your Day

Tired of work or life in general controlling your mood? Instead letting the outside world effect you internally, how about you switch it up and let your mood effect your outside world.

P.S. you only want to do that if you’re in a positive, happy mood.

 

I put together a list of things I implemented in my life, to make my day bright even on a rainy day.

#1 Be observant and aware of your emotions. Acknowledge what stresses you out, and what makes you angry. Pay attention to how those things effect your whole day. The great thing about observing these things is that you have an advantage of being able to solve the things that are bothering you.

 

#2 Change your perspective. If you can’t change the things that are bothering you. Then you have to change your perspective on the situation. You have the power to decide how you feel, so start by deciding to be a little more optimistic. Possibly the problems you are facing are only temporary, maybe it’s helping you be a stronger person, the problems you are facing could be fuel, motivation to make a big change in your life. Looking at your problems from a different perspective can sometimes show you that they are not real problems or problems that can be easily solved.

 

#3 Predict the future. Decide and believe you are going to have a good day before it has even officially started. I do this when I take up an agency jobs, the reality is I don’t like the jobs but for some reason deciding that I am going to have a good day made it so much easier. I honestly have a good day, I think that’s because I believe that I’m going to have a good day. So the night before or the first thing in the morning plan, out your day. With the things that normally bother you, plan in your head that you’re not going to let it bother you. Your day will not go exactly as you planned but because you are conscious and self aware you can manipulate your feelings towards the day.  The way you feel inside can effect what happens outside.

 

#4 Have something to look forward to. You know the feeling you get where the day to your booked holiday is getting closer. Well you should create that feeling with other things not just holidays. Discover your passions again. If you love reading treat yourself to some books. Make time for yourself and do what excites you. Maybe you need something big, like follow your passion and start your own business. Whatever is make sure you have things in your life that you can look forward to. So start planning for your self.

 

#5 Self love, the confidence that everybody needs. Notice how you tolerate things because confidence is stopping you from dealing with it. Confidence is the key to success and happiness, love your self be proud of your achievements, be selfish sometimes. You deserve to be loved and respected, and if you want more people to treat you how you like to be treated, then you have to love and respect yourself to. I’m sure people will love and respect you without you loving yourself. But it is important that you do it will encourage not to put up with being mistreated, it will encourage you to do things that make you happy and it will give you the strength and confidence to do the things you’ve always wanted to do so that most days become bright.

Past & Peace 

“Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness. But because you deserve peace.”

The way I think of the past is like written chapters to your unfinished book. Some people let the bad things that happened in their past define who they are today. Any negativity in my past I see them as lessons and and opportunities for me to grow into a better person. The great thing about the past being like written chapters of an unfinished book; is that you can go back and edit your past. You can change your perception of the story. You can remove the heavy weight of emotion and take something positive from it.

Don’t get stuck in the past, because if you’re stuck in the past. You’re not really living. Maybe in the past you was a victim in a situation. But you are not a victim today. You have got through it, how do I know? Because you are still here today and the only thing that’s keeping you in the past. Is that you are not letting go. Which is why you don’t feel life is getting better. Life is not happening to you, life is responding to you. So if you want life to get better. You must let go and remove any anger from your system, as it’s scientifically proven that anger poisons you’re system. So you need to change your attitude, your behaviour, your perception, you must rewrite your story and let go so you can start living and be present.

You deserve peace and happiness. So keep looking forward and find inspiration.
