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!

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
