8 Best Ways to Have a Great Day

We’ve all had those days where we wake up on the wrong side of the bed. But, that doesn’t mean it has to stay that way.

What should you do then? How can you make sure you have a great day from the minute you wake up and get out of bed?

Just follow these simple steps to increase the likelihood of having a great day:

Have a good breakfast
When you wake up early, it’s essential that you have a good hearty breakfast that improves your mood and keeps you healthy. What’s considered as a good breakfast? Dieticians recommend high fiber cereal, with low fat milk, fresh fruits, wholegrain toast, eggs, and yogurt.

Have a workout
It is proven that exercising at least 1 hour every day helps us be more creative, it also decreases our stress levels and boosts endorphins.

Focus on one thing at a time
Focusing on one thing at a time helps your mind to stay focused on the particular task at hand. Instead of multi tasking which could clutter your mind, focusing on one thing at a time will allow your mind to be clear and help you resolve solutions much faster without getting you frustrated.

Take regular breaks
You need to know that you’re not a machine and that your body wasn’t designed to work non-stop. So, it’s essential that you take regular breaks so that your body can recover from any form of work, mentally or physically.

Stack up on healthy snacks
If you feel that that your mood is down, then you should know that it’s time for a pick me up. Have a chocolate or granola bar. Chocolate and the mixed nuts in a granola bar are known to be mood improvers that have natural mood enhancing neurotransmitters.

Listen to Great Music
Music is one of the greatest ways to improve your mood. No matter where you are or how your day is going, listening to your favorite song can put you into a happy mood.

Listing your favorite things
If things aren’t going your way, stop. Forcing yourself to complete a task that just isn’t working at that particular moment will only leave you flustered and frustrated. The best option for you at this point is to sit back and list all the things that make you happy. Soon you’ll realize that everything is clearer and you’re ready to work.

Think Positive
Yes, this advice sounds cliché, but it works. If you’re having one of those days, where nothing seems to go right, being annoyed or angry won’t solve the problem. Think positively, if nothing’s happening sit back, take deep breaths, and try observing what you’re doing wrong while assessing the situation. Always be sure to be thankful for what you have, it may seem that you not getting what you want is probably the worst thing in the world. But, maybe from someone else’s point of view you may have everything in the world.

Therefore, to be happy eat a good breakfast, smile, listen to good music, and lastly think positively and you’ll have yourself a great day.
