I have found that it is very important for me to set my day in a positive way. I have a routine that I have been doing for the last five years that has made such a difference in my life. While it has involved a time sacrifice, it has ultimately been worth it when I think about what I have gained…a sense of peace, optimism and joy!
Here are a few suggestions that I have to start your day in a positive way. All of these may not work for you but if you can incorporate some of them it will help you start your day in a less stressful way. In order to get the full benefit of these suggestions it is a good idea to wake up 30 minutes earlier than what you normally do .I know, I know, that sounds like a huge sacrifice. Perhaps going to bed 30 minutes earlier will do the trick. Maybe you might want to record that TV program you want to watch, or call your girlfriend on Saturday afternoon instead of staying up late to chat.
Try these tips to start your day in a positive way.
I have found having a prayer/meditation/war room a wonderful place to start my day.This is just a suggestion, not a must have.
Setting aside a room in your house for your own quiet space, to meditate or pray in, is a good way to provide yourself with a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Think of the things that make you calm and happy, and apply them to this personal space. Add elements that inspire you and ignite your senses as you mediate and pray.
