Here is how to have a great day....every day. You are in control of your time and your calendar. It’s time to create the best day of your life. You are in charge. Before you create your to-do list, create your ideal day.
There are three questions that I recommend asking before something goes on your to-do list and they are:
1. Does it need to be done?
2. Does it need to be done by me?
3. Does it need to be done now?
When you know your priorities before the day starts, it will help you focus and decrease the overwhelm of all the things you feel like you need to do. I complete my to-do list the night before so I know the first thing to do when I wake up in the morning.
Your action: Write down your top 3 priorities for the day the night before. This will keep you on task and motivated!
What are affirmations? They are something you do daily that describe a goal in its already completed state. A few of my favorites lately I have been writing down are:
When you’re grateful for the things you have, no matter how small they may be, you will see those things instantly increase. You will be happier when you count your blessings. The more gratitude you feel, the happier you will be.
Studies show people who practice gratitude have closer relationships, are more connected to family and friends and are viewed more favorably by others.
