“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”  — Jane Goodall

Somedays are harder than others. Yet, we get a chance every time the sun comes up to have a better day. Here is a list of what positive people do daily to improve their days.

  • Rise and shine – no snooze for you!
  • Choose your attitude, to think positively, and to be productive from there on.
  • Make the bed – starts the day with an easy accomplishment.
  • Stretches! Get the body loose and ready.
  • Begin to focus on the day.
    • Set/Look over your goals.
    • You make it a good day.
    • Be energized by all the possibilities that today brings.
  • Get some exercise, hydrate, and eat the good, real, and natural foods!
  • Get outside and enjoy the sun! Natural light is one of the best medicines.
  • Life is about balance.
    • Work at 100% when it is time to work.
    • Be sure to allow time to play everyday, too.
  • Slow it down when the day starts to come to an end.
    • Read a book.
    • Go for a peaceful walk.
    • Talk to your neighbors.
  • Practice gratitude.

In the most simplistic explanation, YOU create your reality. The choices that you do today are entirely up to you. How you react to the day or a situation starts and ends with you. Challenge yourself to try a few or all the things on the list to help you live a more positive life.

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”  
–Marcus Aurelius
