Welcome to another edition to Motivational Mondays!!! This week, I wanted to make a list of tips and tricks to turn your mood around instantly--therefor these should be practiced on a daily basis. ;) It's not always easy to remind ourselves that We are in Control of our own moods, our own destinies, our own happiness; so these steps may help you to harness that inner fire and get back on track to a place of inner bliss and awesomeness!
☺ Be Grateful! Nothing will fill you to the brim with joy then sitting down and listing off things you are grateful for. You can take the worst mood and turn it around just by doing this practice. Writing a list is fantastic, but going this list in your head is also a great option--especially if you're stuck in a commute, doing meditation, or doing some mundane house chores, or really anything at all. Just start listing off things you're grateful for. It may feel forced at first, but the more things you list, the more you'll realize how much you have to be grateful for, and the more you'll feel genuinely grateful. It will swell up in your heart with joy! Give it a try!
☺ Have a Solo Dance Party! This isn't a new tip from ReLove, dancing is such an easy joy and release, therefore, it will be repeated here fairly often as a little reminder. Get up and dance. Skip down the street, dance down the aisle of a grocery store, flail your arms while you're in your car (only when you're stopped at a stop sign or something, be safe now ~_^), dance in your living room, while you cook, while you clean, while doing anything! Just crank some tunes (or enjoy the song in your head) and dance your little heart out 'til the good feelings come racing back!
☺ Magic Steps! This is a trick I learned from the book "The Magic" (which if you haven't picked up a copy yet… well, go pick up a copy already!!). All you do is say the words "thank you" with every step you make. The goal is to say "thank you" 100 times--which usually takes about ninety seconds. Don't focus on counting, focus on the words--the exact number isn't as important as harnessing that feeling of gratitude. It will uplift your mood and your state of mind, because gratitude is the key to bliss!
☺ Do Something for You! Take a time out and do something that you truly love. I don't care how little time you have in a day, DO It! Focussing on your joys means you'll become more efficient and you'll open up opportunities because you'll be in a better mind set. So I don't want to hear any excuses, take times--even fifteen minutes--just to do something solely for you!
☺ Write, write, write… Diaries can be topsy-turvy pages of disaster, but they can also help to clear your mind. I highly recommend a Happy Diary exactly for these instances. Traditional diaries tend to be filled with our deepest miseries, because it is easier (for some reason) for us to write about our miseries instead of our joys. In truth, keeping a diary of all the things we're grateful for and all the amazing things happening in our day to day lives will serve you exponentially. You light a fire by speaking positively! However, the negatives need to get out, bottling them up is just setting yourself up for an explosive disaster. So! Write your heart out, spill out the awful messes in your head; accept that what you're feeling is Okay; let it go; and then write about your joys, what you want from the situation, what you're already grateful for right now because of the situation, and find an inner strength and humbleness from the feelings. The goal is to feel Better after you're done writing your heart out--so don't stop until you feel better!
☺ You're Awesome! Give yourself a pep-talk! Seriously, this practice will empower you and remind you of your own potential and might. Tell yourself how awesome you are; tell yourself that you are strong, empowered, confident, kick-ass, loveable, fun, happy, positive, and all the things that you want (aka Choose) to Be! Whenever you start speaking words of self-defeat about yourself, give yourself this pep-talk, and do it for as long as it takes to harness that inner power! Remember to Love Yourself!
☺ “Expectation is the root of all disappointment.” When you expect certain people to act a certain way, you set yourself up for disappointment. When you expect a certain situation to go a certain way, or one particular outcome, then you shut yourself off from what may actually come. Therefore, release expectations. You choose how you react in regards to other people's actions and outcomes to situations. Your Attitude is a far more useful tool than expectation. Learn to adapt, adjust, and have a good attitude! Remember: You are in Control!
Create a great day!
Much love from me to you!
