We all want every day to be a good day, so why not try to make it happen? These are five things I try to do every day to make even the bad days a little better.
1. Make your favorite coffee
Because is by far my favorite part of the day. The act of making my coffee has a way of relaxing me and it helps me have some time to mentally prepare for the day ahead. And if you don't drink coffee maybe try having some tea or a smoothie.
2. Take a shower
We all know that maintaining good hygiene is common sense. But, if you’re the kind of person who takes their showers at night, maybe try waking up a little earlier and opting for a morning shower. This doesn’t sound ideal, but it tends to wake me up every morning and helps me start my day feeling refreshed. It also gives me a few minutes to allow me to clear my mind and relax.
3. Make an uplifting playlist
Music has the amazing power to change our moods from negative to positive. So, why not try incorporating it into your morning routine? I always like to have my favorite songs play while I’m getting ready, showering, and on my way to school. Start your day off with a positive note!
4. Light a candle
This sounds a bit random but I always love to do this while I'm getting ready. I love to make my space smell good and create a place that makes me feel good and that puts me in a good mood. Obviously, pick out your favorite scent and you will be surprised how happy it can make you.
5. Wake up earlier
You probably think I sound crazy but I have nothing but good things to say about this. Waking up earlier has made me a lot more productive and puts me in a relaxing mood. It gives me more time to do some extra studying or take my time getting ready. And if you’re not a morning person, try waking up at least 15 minutes before you usually do, then work your way up from there!
Starting my day off by doing these five things have made my mornings and days a lot more enjoyable. And if you're in college, I am sure that you can definitely benefit from incorporating one of these into your routine. Because we all know that we need all of the positivity we can get in college.
