More ways to make a difference!

There are simple ways you can  make a difference in the lives of others and your own. All it requires is a little optimism, faith, and a dash of courage. Read on….  
 
 
I have been posting my “Ways to make a difference” tips in segments of 3. I believe it is important to treat rudeness with kindness, ill-will with compassion, and always know that you CAN make a difference!
 

Tips for making a difference:

1) Know your limits: It helps to know your limits. From knowing how much sleep you need, how many projects you can handle, or how much downtime you need between events. Don’t push yourself beyond your healthy zone, comfort zone, or sanity zone. Knowing your limits is a bit contribution toward keeping the world at large in balance. Being self-aware is always the best choice!

2) Hurry hurry away: If  you can wait a moment longer, let a rushed and obviously stressed-out person go ahead of you in the check out line at the grocery store, the post office, or the bank. Your kindness might be what it takes to allow that person to take a much needed deep breath.

3) Show your appreciation: Show appreciation to someone who has helped you professional or personally. From a verbal acknowledgement to sending a card or even flowers, the ability  to acknowledge someone else;s generosity or kindness is a real gift and will hopefully encourage others to do the same!

Everything you need is already within you!

 

I hope your having a wonderful day filled with positivity and sunshine. If your not that’s ok too,  just take a deep breath, stay positive, and wait for the storms to pass. They always do!

Since I posted about my three good things yesterday, today I’ll share my morning “good things” with you.

Feel free to comment yours below!

Three things that have brought me happiness this morning:

1) Efficiency in the am. All this week I’ve been up and out the door in 15 minutes, arriving at work before 7:30am. It’s amazing.

2) Beautiful weather here. I cannot complain at all.

3) A large lemonade with a pink straw.

 

The whole world's a stage!

Say three good things.

Sweet puppy

Good afternoon!

Do you remember the inspiration book I mentioned in an earlier post? I can’t quite recall the title, but the morning and evening rituals mentioned in the book are crystal clear to me. It’s funny how things work. :)

So let’s talk rituals.  I am trying to get in the habit of saying three good things that happened during the day, right before bed. You could also do this while brushing your teeth, after your prayers, or even with another family member to end the day on a wonderfully positive note.

It takes time to build a conditioned behavior. So pairing a new behavior or thought with an already ingrained one can help! Allow yourself time to mentally (and physically) prepare for the new behavior.
For example while brushing my teeth in the morning and at night, I am going to think of three good things that have happened during the day.

You could also do this when washing the dishes, cleaning house, walking, sitting at a stop light, stretching, turning on your computer etc….

What are your ideas? I know you can do this!
