MEDITATION-Wake up and meditate for 1-10 minutes to clear your thoughts.
MORNING ACTIVITIES-Doing morning activities with the intent towards yourself like working out, putting makeup on, or listening to your favorite music.
PRACTICING GRATITUDE- Remind yourself of at least three things that your grateful in the morning and as the day goes on.
EMBRACING A CHALLENGE- When a challenge or struggle hits embrace it and be fully present with the uncomfortable feelings. Try to fight reacting in a negative way such as resorting to unhealthy behaviors to cope like drinking, drugs, over eating, yelling, ect. This is not solving anything and eventually makes the problem worst. Accept what is at the moment, feel your feelings in a healthy way like writing it out, meditating, working out, calling a trusting friend to talk to, taking a walk, or reading a self help book. Remember to tell yourself the feeling is temporary and will pass.
LEARNING TO LET GO- Learning to let go is probably the hardest thing one can do. Accept what is and know that you can only control your thoughts, and cannot control outcomes, events, or people. I remind myself of this the minute I start worrying or wanting to control every detail of my life or the reaction of others.
ROUTINE, GOALS, & PASSION- Try to have a consistent routine in your life with work, school, gym, hobbies, social events. Sticking to some form of routine is good for the mind and body. Write a goal list every few months and check back to see where your progress is. Figure out what your interests are and what your passionate about.
JOB /CAREER- Find a job or career that somewhat meets an area of work that you enjoy or that your passionate about. In a perfect world we would all have our dream job, however there is no such thing as perfection, but if you can focus on a couple key elements that your passionate about and find it in a job it will make the job enjoyable.
TREAT YOUR BODY AS A TEMPLE- Eat with the intent to nourish, energize, and purify your mind. Everything you put in your body affects your mind, so treat it with care and thats also saying no to drugs, and avoiding excessive drinking.
EXERCISE- When your stressed, sad, or upset exercise is the easiest and healthiest way to increase our endorphins and make us feel better.
BALANCE – When you start to feel overwhelmed with priorities and duties in your life rebalance what you can handle and what amount of time you want dedicate to certain activities. Just know that it’s impossible to do everything.
DON’T PLAN THE FUTURE-Stop worrying and planning every detail of your life. It’s good to set goals but please learn the moment your mind starts worrying and planning too far ahead turn your focus on the moment, and look at the details of your surroundings.
DON’T GOSSIP AND COMPARE - When you gossip about others it’s negative energy and insecurities on your own end. Remember the focus is on you and not what other people are doing. The minute you stop talking about others in a negative light your creating positive energy by shifting the focus on your needs and wants. Also, stop comparing yourself to others, because you are your own unique lovable individual and when you compare, it often weakens self-esteem, so again keep the focus on you.
MANIFEST A PLAN- Envision a plan actually happening and believing in yourself no matter what!
DON’T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF- Accept that nothing is perfect in life and it’s impossible to achieve perfection, so stop beating yourself up. Always feed your mind with positive kind thoughts, and don’t be so hard on yourself when you make mistakes just let it go. Also, don’t be around people who belittle you, make you feel insecure, and don’t promote goals that empower you on to your own path of success.
TRUST IN YOURSELF- Trust in yourself that you are capable of making the best decisions without anyone else’s advice. Don’t second-guess yourself and always go with your gut instinct.
