The only limits on human achievement are self-imposed. Dr. Denis Waitley
We all have them… those days you wake up and you don’t want to get out of bed. When you finally do, nothing feels as though it’s going right. So how do you turn your day around?
The simplest thing can point your feet in the right direction. Don’t stay in bed – get up. Make yourself breakfast. Buy yourself a coffee.
Open the door for someone. Let someone into your lane when driving to work. Text a friend: “hope you have a good day”. Wish someone happy birthday on Facebook.
Meet a positive friend
Organise to see someone in the afternoon/evening who makes you laugh or feel good about yourself.
Do something different
Shake things up – get out of your comfort zone. Read a book instead of a newspaper. Spend time learning something new.
Watch your diet
Carbohydrtes (bread, rice, pasta) make anyone feel heavy and bloated. Greasy/fatty foods won’t make you feel better either. Stick to a salad or something light today. Drink lots of water.
Think about the good things about yourself and focus on what you CAN do today.
Try to get your heart rate up for 20-30 minutes. It will release endorphins to reduce stress and make you feel better about everything.
Get some sunshine
Sit in some sunshine for at least 15 minutes. If there’s no sun, try natural light for an hour. If this fails, find your own sunshine. What makes YOU happy. Do it for a little while to boost your mood.
A fine quotation is a diamond in the hand of a man of wit and a pebble in the hand of a fool.
A current trend on Facebook and Twitter is to post images of quotes. You know the type – with the inspiring background and words in front of it. Or even just the words slapped onto a pretty average background … or sometimes no background at all. If you’re keen to tune into some of these on your Facebook page, I recommend looking at: Quotes for You, I love Quotes, Positive Inspirational Quotes (PIQ) and Words to Live By – Motivational and Inspiring Quotes.
The question is: why are these quotes so popular? Is it that we can all relate to them in some way and grow from them? Is it because they can say what most of us can only feel?
The quotes I’m referring to (as published below) generally push us forward, inspire us and make us feel motivated and uplifted. It gives us a sense of hope. Today I am sharing some of my favourite quote images (and even just pictures that speak). Enjoy!
