7 Things To Do To Have A more Positive Day

Because who doesn't want to be a little happier each day?

7 Things To Do To Have A more Positive Day

1. Wake up earlier

I know this may sound awful to some people, but waking up earlier allows you to have more time in the day to do the things you love! Sing an extra song in the car, watch another movie, or take your dog to the park for an extra hour. The possibilities are endless!


2. Drink more water

I'm sure you hear this all the time, but there IS a reason why everyone says to drink more water. Staying hydrated flushes out the toxins in our body, helping us feel brighter and healthier. This is ESPECIALLY important in the summer heat because it can help us feel less tired and more hydrated.


3. Take at least 10 minutes of your day to sit in silence

This may sound odd to some people, just sitting in complete silence? Who does that? A lot of people! Whether it is meditation, praying, or just sitting with complete control over your thoughts, sitting in a silent space can allow your mind to relax and not think about anything for a certain span of time.


4. Read a few pages of a book each day (or night)

Reading in the morning or when you are about to go to sleep relaxes the mind, and allows it to focus on the one book you are reading. This can calm your brain from over-thinking about what you have to do that day, or the things that you may have to do the next day. It allows you to be in the moment.


5. Smile at people more often

If you happen to make awkward eye contact with someone in the grocery store, just smile at them! Or if you see someone you went to school with at the mall, just smile at them! Smiling even when you aren't in the brightest of moods allows you to feel more happy. And when you smile, you can make others happy too! So its a win win!


6. Feed your body and feed your soul

It is important to try to eat healthy food so our bodies have the energy it needs to have a productive day, but sometimes we may not want to have ANOTHER salad for lunch, and that's ok! Its important to fuel your body with the food we need, but it is also important to fuel our soul with the food we want. So go ahead and have that ice cream for lunch! (But maybe not everyday of course).


7. Tell someone you love them

Whether it is your mom, dad, partner, best friend, or random stranger you meet at Target, tell someone you love them! It will make their day happier and yours too!

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
