5 Easy Pick-me-ups to a sunnier day

1 // Jams. 
I don't think there is anything better than turning on your favorite song and dancing. I don't know about you, but I can't have a poopy face when I hear the song happy!

2 // Self-help books. 
In my post How I went from Cloudy to Sunny (feels like ages ago..) I talked a lot about self-help books and I recommended a lot of them... I believe it good and healthy to read, I mean who doesn't? One of my favorite quotes is "If you're not growing you're dying." I think It's always a good idea to learn and expand your mind. Those books can reallyyy reallly help you grow and begin thinking more positively. Just start out with a small goal too. Don't tell yourself you're going to read 5 chapters a day because you're setting yourself up for failure, and that's no good. Make it a super tangible goal and read a paragraph or even just a sentence a day to start out and grow from there.

3 // Dress Up
Go throw your sweats in the laundry room and put on a dress or top that has a bright or bold color! If you're a lady then do a bright coral or pink lip color, It'll sure lift your spirits!

4 // Positive Affirmations
Give yourself love. I believe we should be starting out our days like this girl  Every day we give ourselves affirmations and labels. Whether It's detrimental to us or beneficial. Not sure if you've ever watched the clip from What The Bleep Do We Know but if you watch the video you'd see the different affirmations and how it effects water . Now, we're made up of 90% of water. It's just proof that self-talk does effect us. So start lovin' on yourself!!

5 // Gratitude
You might be rolling your eyes thinking that all I do is talk about gratitude and how great and beneficial it is.. But you guys, its so dang true! I think It's something that you can't get enough of and It's something that you should hear over and over again. Keep a gratitude journal or just put out there "into the universe" or God, or whatever you and your personal belief are, mine is God. Just pray and say thank you for giving me this and this. Even things that haven't even happened yet be grateful for all the amazing things in your life that are going to happen! Especially be thankful or the things you have now. Be grateful you woke up this morning, you ate today, your family, just anything! I promise you; your days will get better! If you start this every morning before you get out of bed, you are most defiantly setting yourself up for a terrific day!

  1. This is great advice! I especially like #5. When we stop showing gratitude we start taking things for granted--and who wants to be one of those people??? Another thing that helps me a lot is doing something nice for someone else. When I'm down, nothing picks me up quicker than doing a good deed. People think I'm nice, but really I'm being selfish. :D

  2. Hahah I absolutely love that!! I totally agree I feel like when I give I get more pleasure out of that then what the actual gift is! :))
