What kind of day do you want?

It’s really up to you to decide what kind of day you’ll have

 You see it’s not when you wake up, it’s how you wake up.  It’s not when you go to sleep, it’s how you go to sleep.

Whether we realise it or not, most of us are attached to negativity and drama, whether it’s watching television or reading a book.   Unless it’s information that empowers us, it doesn’t serve us well.   

Be mindful of the last thing you do, read or watch before you go to bed as this is the last thing you remember before falling asleep.

Anything that doesn’t give you peace and calmness before you fall asleep leaves a marinating effect whilst you’re sleeping.

When we awake, the first thing many of us do is reach for our phone. This isn’t the best way to start the day as it triggers our minds to instantly start stressing, worrying & planning leaving no time to be grateful for the many good things we have.

Our thoughts control our feelings and our feelings determine our emotions

this impacts on our mood for the day,which in turn affects ourselves and people around us, which will determine our results for the day.


Try this mindfulness exercise for a month to see what results you get.

Before you go to bed, read something that serves you, such as a book on personal growth or something uplifting that makes you feel happy. Do not read or watch negative news or violence before bed, instead, watch something light hearted or something that makes you laugh, although, not at the expense of others

Buy an alarm clock & leave your mobile phone in another room. Then, when you open your eyes in the morning you won’t be tempted to reach for your phone, spend that time thinking of something you are grateful for instead.   Being grateful alleviates worry, fear and even anger as they are opposing emotions and cannot be expressed at the same time.

You are the best qualified person on the planet at being you, so it’s up to you to work on yourself and create an amazing life.  So let’s start with this daily mindful exercise and build up from there.

Remember, there is no road to happiness, happiness is the road and we are already on it.

The best way to predict your future is to create it.
