A few weeks ago I woke up and immediately called my husband and said, "I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and this day is going to be the worst." Guess what? It was the worst, and instead of trying to turn it around I sulked and spoke truth into it.
Instead of choosing to bring attention to the negative, these are 7 tips which I feel can help turn a morning of bad into a morning of change for the better.
1. Take a deep breath, drink a glass of water, and briefly stretch.
It's impossible to wake up every single morning with it starting off perfectly. Sometimes we sleep horribly which can ruin our moods quickly. If you feel yourself being negative be mindful of your emotions and stop for a quick deep breath and hydrate yourself with a refreshing glass of water. This might not immediately change your mood, but it is something positive to get your mindset off of focusing on the negative.
2. If you have a sweet pup or furry friend give them some sweet cuddles.
Nothing makes me happier than loving on my fur babies. Their love is so unconditional and constant. I find joy in waking up to my beautiful pup, who snuggled me all night, just as excited for morning snuggles. If you don't have a sweet fur baby go look up pictures of your favorite animals and maybe just go adopt your dream pet.
3. Look in the mirror and say something positive about yourself.
Ugh, I know this is weird. BUT YOU ARE WORTHY. Know that, embrace that, and SPEAK THAT.
4. Compliment somebody.
It can be your spouse, a friend, a stranger, or even your pet! Speaking positivity into others is amazing and there is nothing better than seeing the joy of someone else.
5. Pray. Read your bible. Worship.
When the enemy attacks fight him off by praying and worshipping. When you surrender to the Lord and give everything including the ugly to Him life will change. Don't hold on to the chains which will hold you down, but embrace His love which will comfort you.
6. Call someone that you love to talk to.
I absolutely love starting off my mornings talking to my big sister. She is one of my best friends and always such an encouragement.
7. Eat a good breakfast.
This is the most important meal of the day. You should for sure start with a delicious meal to get your day going off to a great start. This will give you such great energy ready to take on what the day has for you.
