Sometimes it’s the simple things.
I have collected a few of my favorite Pinterest encouragement quotes and I hope they can help you get motivated to start your day and week off on the right foot!
Happy Monday to you!
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
Do you wake up immediately dreading the day ahead? Here are 9 ways you can start your day off right!
Starting your day off with something that not only tastes good but is good for your body can help motivate you and stimulate your mood.
Living in the positive light is a learning process. Our happiness can only be found by changing our perception of the things around us. Our happiness and positive vibes get buried under all of the negative rubble the world hurls at us. It is up to us to slowly pick up and carry that rubble away to uncover our true happiness.
“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.”
Monday; the day of the week everyone seems to share so much disdain for. Why is that? Maybe you hate your job … or, maybe it’s because it is the first day of the week making it the day furthest away from our freedom (aka Friday)? Maybe you hate Mondays because you have the hardest time “gettin’ goin’” for the week ahead. Either way, everyone seems to have some sort of negative feelings towards Monday.
Try looking at Monday in a completely different light:
Monday; a fresh start. The day of the week where you can take care of the things you couldn’t accomplish last week. Maybe last week you made some mistakes or maybe made the wrong decisions … Monday forgives. Monday allows you to start over new; to start over fresh and rejuvenated. So what if you went off track with your diet and fitness regimen last week. Enjoy it, let it go, and get back on track Monday. With each new day comes a new start.
“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
It’s amazing how when you change your thoughts your whole world can change.
“A man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks he becomes.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Is balance possible? In a world where we are constantly juggling responsibilities is it truly possible to achieve perfect balance in our lives?
We are constantly being pulled in so many different directions: work reports, deadlines, children’s play dates, hobbies, school, part-time jobs, etc. The list goes on and on … and on. Even your house is calling your name! The front door needs to be fixed, there’s a leak in your bathroom, and you have to paint the living room walls because your children “ran out of paper”. Yikes! You think, “Gosh, there’s not enough time in a day!” A strenuous work load and having to make time for your family along with household chores is difficult to balance. You feel absolutely exhausted even though you’re not pushing forward or making any progress with anything. Why do you feel this way? Because you are trying to balance everything in your life.
If balance is so impossible to achieve then what are we doing every day to make time for the different responsibilities in our life?
It’s called counterbalance.
Counterbalancing is simply prioritizing. It is the constant shift of our attention from one thing to another to make time for everything in our lives. This will naturally force you off-balance. That’s okay, as long as it is done so for the right reasons. Sometimes you have to be at the top, the bottom, or to the extreme left or right side in order to give your attention to your priorities.
There are two parts of your life that you will continually attempt to balance out:
There will be times at work where you may feel like you are being pulled in different directions. Priorities at work are ever-changing which is completely normal. You will be at extreme ends of the scale much of the time.
In order to counter balance your life there are three things that need constant attention:
Family and Friends
Body and Spirit
Below are a few simple ways you can satisfy your own personal needs at home and/or at work.
