"We could hardly wait to get up in the morning!" Wilbur and Orville Wright
I actually love this quote - it's exactly how I've been feeling lately! Don't get me wrong...it would be oh, so nice to sleep in but when I do get up and out of bed, I don't feel sluggish or bloated or heavy. Instead, I find I feel energetic and happy.
Seriously? It took me this long to figure out the secret to waking up happier not crankier. I've been missing out.
Do any of you have mental tips and tricks to help you through the day or week?
One of my favourites is thinking about the upcoming events I have in my life (both short-term and long-term). Short-term would be this week and long-term would be in a few months kinda thing.
For instance, this week my short-term goals are a board meeting, a sponsor meeting and a brunch. I have these 3 things posted in my agenda and on my computer screen. That way when I find myself craving peanut butter cups, I look at the list and see that I need to make a good impression at my meetings and wow my friends at brunch and I kick the craving. So far this has been working. Setting small goals. Again, who knew? Ha!
