Find your why.
I’ve never came across something that sums up people so beautifully. This is so true, and i realize it even more so now I have an opportunity for people to better themselves every day, that some do and some don’t take advantage of.
So many excuses, so many ‘yeh buts’, so many ‘maybe tomorrows’. You are the only person in your life that can make the changes necessary to change your lifestyle.
If you feel you can or you feel you cant, you are right.
Its Monday – doom and gloom day for many. But not me, I love Mondays!
New week, new possibilities and new goals to smash. Hell yeah.
To get you all through the week with a big smile on your face, I’ve put together 5 ways in which I believe you can lead a happier life.
All additional tips are welcome; just post them in the comments section J
- Surround yourself with positive, like-minded people
Positives attract positives, it’s a given! The law of Attraction is a powerful thing. If you are surrounded by negativity you will most likely become more negative.
Spend your time wisely with people who fulfill you, lift your mood and make you smile.
- Stop reading the news every day
I’m sure a lot of people will gasp at the sight of this comment. Avoid being updated on the Worlds current affairs – how could you possibly?!
However, if you want to be happier you need a News Detox. The News is filled with negativity and “brain washing” to flood people’s minds with fear and worry. Sad stories do not make for a happy mind. The world can be horrible yes, but it can also be wonderful too! Try a weekly newspaper instead of a daily one.
- Eat Healthier and do some exercise
These two go hand in hand with each other.
I know that sitting around eating chocolate bars and living off caffeine drinks for energy seems like the easier option, but feeling lethargic and fat is not something that will make you smile.
Living healthy has been proven to have a positive psychological effect on living beings. I mean, look at how happy dogs are when they’re running around chasing sticks in the park!
Get some fruit and veg down you and go for a run to boost those energy levels.
As a wise blonde lawyer once said ‘Exercise releases endorphin’s and endorphin’s make you happy’ Listen to Elle, she speaks sense.
- Try something new
Especially on the weekends! Relaxation time is important, but don’t waste the only 2 days you have off of work lying in bed!
Try out a new hobby, do a fun day with friends and family, or how about learning a new language? Knowledge is power after all.
- Travel often
“Travelling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” Hear hear.
Be rich in life and live for new experiences in new places, new cultures and new inspirations. Expand your mind as much as you can and learn and travel often.
Don’t worry, be happy. You’re alive after all, and life is beautiful thing. No matter what day of the week it is.
Like the title? I fancied using a bit of alliteration to spice up my Monday!
As Monday is factually known to be most peoples worst liked day of the week, I thought i’d spread some excitement and motivation across the world, in the form of a great Forbes article posted today…
A great one for you budding female entrepeneurs ~jointhemovement
I start my new job in the city today yayyy! 😁😁
I took a risk and quit my old job to go travelling, and months later I’ve come back richer in life and landed myself a better job and a new business venture!
Could not be happier! Life is about taking risks and dreaming big!
‘Never let the fear of striking out, stop you from playing the game’
We must continue to empower and support one another, embrace our strength and stay true to ourselves.
Be the positive change we want to see in the world. Contribute at http://www.internationalwomensday.com

I can’t believe that the last birthday we shared of yours was your 17th. Another secret night out that we didn’t tell our mums about. Now there’s a surprise! No of course I was sleeping at yours, you was sleeping at mine etc. we know how the under age rebel stories go..
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Brainwave.”
I am not an early morning person. I have tried and tried but getting up in the morning does not motivate me no matter where I’m going. Maybe its something to do with the fact I’m a night owl. I’ll attempt to go to sleep at 10pm most nights to try and be responsible (and get rid of the horribly permanent black bags under my eyes). I just end up laying for hours reflecting on my life and thinking about other completely pointless things that do not occur to me throughout the day. Before I know it, its the early hours of the morning. Continue reading “Rushin’ and brushin’”
