Let’s just be NICE.
A New Year can be looked at as a way to start fresh or gain a new outlook. Sometimes, all the things that are happening in this world can really start to weigh you down. They can make you feel like there's few good, genuinely nice people left. BUT, let me stop you there! Take a minute to think about how many amazing people that are in your life, or people you've spent time with throughout your life. Or even how many times a stranger has done something so small, but made you smile.
Let's make a point of being nice, friendly people. If something happens to you where you feel angry, take a minute to think about it and realize it's not worth wasting your energy over. For example, how many times when driving do you feel anger creep up on you when someone cuts you off or is driving 20 kms under the speed limit? (Or, is that just me...). It's not worth wasting energy on things you cannot control. Maybe that driver is having a bad day. You just never know what's going on in someone else's life. Being nice to that stranger, friend, family member, may just make the biggest difference in their day.
A new thing I am looking forward to trying out is random acts of kindness. I want to buy the coffees for the car behind me in a drive thru, send flowers to my mom just to say thank you, I want to donate to a shelter and help those in need.
Let’s make the world a better place, one random act of kindness at a time!
-that’s the fresh perspective…
one. Identify the problem.
Is there a lingering thought in your mind that seems overwhelming as you begin each week? Whether it's an unfinished project, an unfinished conversation or a work related issue. Take some time to get to the bottom of this to ease that anxious feeling at the beginning of each week.
two. Get enough sleep.
Sometimes weekends can seem busier than your week. This is a recipe for disaster for the upcoming week. Make sure you get enough sleep on the weekend as they really are there to help you recharge.
three. Be positive.
If you go into a week with a bad attitude, you're going to have a bad week. Or, at least a bad start to your week. Monday is just another day and will be over before you know it! If you go into the day ready for action, the chances of it flying by will be much more likely.
four. Make someone else happy.
The feeling of bringing joy to someone, making them smile, may be just what you need to snap you out of your Monday funk. Bring a co-worker their favourite coffee, tell a friend how much you love them, or make your [family, spouse, partner, kids] their favourite dinner. Even the smallest gestures make a difference and will make you feel happier while making someone else smile.
five. Dress like a pro.
If you go into Monday with a drab outfit you may not be able to help but feel a little sluggish. Try spicing up your wardrobe and wearing some bright fun colours, or adding a bright tuque. This is an easy way to put a little pep in your step.
six. Turn up the tunes!
Monday's are allowed to feel like a party. Get that speaker on and rock out while you get ready or while you drive to work. Seriously, this works.
seven. surround yourself with positive people.
- It really makes a difference who you surround yourself with. Always feel like so and so is putting a damper on everything, regardless of the topic? Maybe spend less time socializing with that person, or, check in with them to see if everything is okay. It's draining to complain or be around a complainer. If it were me, I'd prefer to know I was doing it so I could snap out of it!
