Have you had any major life changes or began putting down new roots. Stress is a evil side of causing havoc on our health. We’ve all had good days and bad. But have you ever had that one best day and enjoyed every minute of it. Don’t relish on the bad days and moments, let it go. Somethings just don’t matter in the bigger scheme of things. It’s about making each day one the best. Have you heard the mantra, live each day as it was your last. Nickelback has a song, entitled “If Today Was Your Last Day.”
My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day’s a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride
If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day
(If today was your last day)
Against the grain should be a way of life
What’s worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try
So live like you’ll never live it twice
Don’t take the free ride in your own life
Wake-Up and Meditate
Before you start your day, start it off with a little meditation in bed. Don’t check your email, and don’t look at your phone. Just sit, close your eyes and meditate for 15-20 minutes. If you start the day this way, you set a tone that promotes clarity and calm.
Early Risers Get the Worm
That’s right—get up early and seize the day! Sleeping in is great, but waking up early grants you bonus time to hit the gym, make a proper breakfast or spend time with a loved one. Normally, most of us only need 6 to 8 hours sleep each day, anything more than that can be a waist of time.
You feel longer, leaner and clearer headed when you do yoga. Try some free classes online, or check out your local Y, community center or yoga studio.
Enjoy a Great Meal
Pick a restaurant you love or one you’ve been curious about, and take yourself out on a dinner date. Get dressed up and enjoy a long, leisurely meal with yourself. Also, go for it and order dessert! Treating yourself every now and then keeps your mindset healthy.
Spend at least a half or third of the day with your phone switched off. Let loved ones know you’re taking a phone break, and enjoy being off the hook for a bit. See how it feels to go unplugged, and enjoy the chance to focus on whatever tasks or projects you are working on without constant interruptions.
Cut way down on social media usage and it feels great. Try a social media detox and observe how much more productive and relaxed you’ll be. Don’t worry, it’ll all still be there tomorrow, so take today off from reading about what your friends ate for lunch.
Soak it Up
A warm bath is relaxing, grab some Dead Sea salt, a little almond oil and a few candles, then have a spa night. Treat yourself to a nice, new fluffy towel and play soothing music. You need to give yourself TLC and not wait for it to come from outside sources. A steam spa is another alternative for relaxing the body.
Listen to Your Favorite Music
Bust out your old vinyl and grab a record player from a friend if you don’t have one. Regardless of whether you’re going for the full-on vinyl experience, put on your favorite music and dance. Simple pleasures can be extremely healing, and playing songs that you adore can sooth the soul.
Be Good to Thy Neighbor
Bake something for a neighbor, visit an animal shelter and drop off supplies, or just send flowers to someone you care for. Take a moment and do something for someone else, and see how great it makes you feel. It will make your day, and theirs!
If Anything, Do Nothing
Just because you don’t do anything, doesn’t mean you don’t care or are a carefree person, it’s okay, try an entire day without structure or boundaries. Don’t set any particular time to wake up, get out the door or run errands. Taking a day such as this now and then allows you to listen to your body’s natural rhythm, calm down and be fully in the present. No worries about what happened in the past, no fretting about the future—simply enjoy yourself in the NOW, with no appointments or restrictions for one whole day.
