My main commitment to this site is to offer mindset and life advice to anyone who in interested in a DIY sort of approach to self-help. All I can offer is tactics based on my own personal experiences, which have help me greatly.
This posts topic seems to speak to the most people so I will expand upon ways to “love the job you hate.”
The two previous methods I have mentioned were, generally, Self-awareness and Gratitude.
Here, we are encouraged to recognize the tasks or annoyances that bring us negative emotion, and choose to react more positively to them. Furthermore, we are encouraged to reflect upon all of the good in our lives and focus on these in times of difficulty at work or everyday life.
To take these concepts a step further. I will share my specific morning routine, which helped change my mindset about my job and my life.
- Drink a Glass of Water
- Brush Teeth
- Journal Three Things I am Grateful for
- Journal Three Reasons Why I Am Already Successful
- 5 Minute Listen to Breath
- 5 Minute Listen to Positive Audio (TedTalk, AudioBook)
- 15 Minute Stretch/ Workout
- 10 Minutes of Reading
- Give Yourself a Smile in the Mirror
Repeating these simple tasks before going to work will make your day, I guarantee it! You will enter your work day with a sense of accomplishment from the start.
As previously mentioned, a habit typically takes about 30 days to stick, so practice this routine as consistently as possible! Finding this 30 min- 45 min of extra time in the morning will be more than worth in the long run. This is time for yourself, before the world wakes up and starts asking things of you.
You deserve it.
Please contact me in the Contact section or comment with email below if you would like me to email a copy of the Morning Routine Check-Off List I have created. This consists of all of the above tasks in check-off list form for each day of every month! (And it is free, of course).
