1. Begin your day with gratitude.
Auntie Oprah preaches this on the daily. It gets hard sometimes but if you start your day being thankful for the little things when life throws you a serious curveball you can remember 1. It could always be worse and 2. There is far too much to be thankful for.
2. Switch up something in your everyday routine.
If you stay ready you won't have to get ready. Try something new in your routine to stay on your toes. You don't want to get too comfortable because when presented with new opportunities you can decrease your anxiety by getting used the new new every once in a while.
3. Vibe out to some positive jams.
Don’t get me wrong I love listening to Sade crooning the Sweetest Taboooooo but I need something uplifting to put me in the right creative space for school or work. Lately I have been listening as Kid Fury calls them Destiny’s Nieces Chloe and Halle. Those talented young ladies have me vibing to their melodic tunes.
4. Live your best life.
That dish you want to try, TRY IT. That business you want to start, START IT.That place you want to go , GO. Recently I took myself on a trip to Florida. I visited my cousin and spent some much needed me time to reflect on what I wanted this year. I came back refreshed from the time off and thankful to get back to the grind.
5. Forgive yourself.
Nobody’s Perfect. .We are only human and humans are bound to make mistakes. We can be our own worst critics and the best thing to do is learn from the mistake and keep it pushing. Don’t get stuck in a rut. It will be significantly harder to come back from if you harp on it.
