We're taking back Mondays!!!
"Motivational Mondays" are fabulous tips to get you excited and pumped for the week!
Feeling low? Moody? Down on life? Well, that's what these posts are for! Time to feel awesome again and get some Positivity rolling! Just because it's Monday doesn't mean you can't have fun, smile, and enjoy Today! Apply these tips to your week and try to tell me that you don't start to see an improvement in your life! ;)
It's all about You! Change your perception, change your attitude, love your life! xo
☺ Think Positive = Receive Positive. Think Negative = Receive Negative. I've been seeing a ton of negative and frustrated statuses on Facebook and social networking sites lately. It makes me a sad panda. :( Remember that focussing on those negatives and getting frustrated only welcomes more of it into your life. Always focus on the positive, no matter how things get. If you want love then think thoughts of love, and remember to be patient (not frustrated and give up). Happiness and love are all around you, but you must be open to receiving it, and you can't do that with a bad attitude. Think Positive!
☺ Surround yourself with Good News! The news on television is just plain depressing. It's intentionally so, to make us fearful, to feel powerless and helpless. It's propaganda. Don't watch it. This is what the wonderful world of the internet exists for (and why governments keep coming out with things like SOPA). Read up on things if you're unsure. Question everything (in a good healthy way, not an obsessive way that will make you crazy ;p). And, more than anything, surround yourself with good news. There are so many amazing inspiring stories going on all over the world, stories that fill you with hope and joy. Pay attention to those kinds of stories instead of the negative news projected by mainstream media.
☺ Dance in the car! This tip is thanks to a lovely reader of mine. :) So, I always talk about dancing in the living room to your favourite music to boost that good mood and for fun exercise. Welll, my lovely reader pointed out that not everyone has much time at home but lots do spend a fair bit of time commuting. So, dance in the car! Turn up the radio and sing and dance to put yourself in a great mood! Flail those arms around, sing at the top of your lungs, smile from cheek to cheek! Of course road safety comes first, but have fun. ;)
☺ Life is a roller coaster… even if you are the happiest person and are on top of the world, there are still bumps. But the bumps are okay, they're a part of the learning process, for growth, and personal evolvement, the problem is the way we deal with those bumps. Learn to go with the flow and not let a bump knock you off the boat. Climb back up and keep going, don't resist, and make the best of it. Life is a beautiful roller coaster if you choose for it to be. ;)
☺ Survive the Holidays! I wrote up a post last year around the holiday season and the stresses it tends to bring. It's quite moronic when it's meant to be a time spent spreading kindness and joy and time spent with loved ones, when instead we're running around from store to store, stressing over presents and money and plans, and ending up having very little time for ourselves and those loved ones. Tune it down a notch and spend more time on people instead of more money on artificial things. And read up my post from last year for a mood booster (Click HERE!).
☺ Do 5 Good Deeds! Tis the season! So spread some extra kindness around and do some good deeds around town, for your friends and/or family. Volunteer at your local animal shelter, support a good cause, give a stranger a hug, buy coffee for the person behind you in line, donate to the food bank, leave "loves notes" on people's cars, help someone with their groceries, anything you can think of! Try to encourage others to join you in this. ♥
☺ “That's the best revenge of all: happiness. Nothing drives people crazier than seeing someone having a good fucking laugh.” ~ Chuck Palahniuk. I do believe I have posted this before but I simply must again. ;) I just posted a new video blog about dealing with people bashing and this quote comes to mind. Don't sink down to other people's negative levels, just keep smiling and having a damn good laugh. Who do you think is going to come out ahead? ;)
Hope you are all making the most of the Holiday season and keeping smiles on your faces--and if not hopefully today's Motivational Monday tips will help. ;)
Much Love from me to you!
Create a Nice Day! xo
