Good morning Y'all!
It has been such a very long time since I have blogged and I have truly missed it. Let's just call it a short vacation!
Today's blog is a hodgepodge of thoughts floating in my little ole brain.
First thing first - today is the first day of the rest of my life. Today is the day that I am going to kick the nasty habit of drinking soft drinks. YES...I love my soft drinks but I am determined that my life will be so much better without them. And...my hips will appreciate it too!
Secondly - I originally started this blog to document those special moments in my life so I would not forget them when I was old and gray! It quickly transformed into a blog where I offered motivational thoughts for all those who needed them. And guess what? I noticed the more that I blogged "happy" thoughts or motivational thoughts - the more impact that it had on my life. I will continue to post motivational blogs along the way but I also want to document other life experiences. So without further delay - here comes Monday's Motivation. Not only is today a new day, it is also a new beginning...a new opportunity to start over again!
Since I am dedicating this day to a new beginning - what better way than to set some goals on how to make the most of each and every day! I challenge you to create your own new beginning. Listed below are some of the ways that I plan on making my day the best day ever!
Today I will start the day on a positive note. I will accomplish this by reading a daily motivational book. I personally prefer "Journey to the Heart" by Melody Beattie.
Each morning - I will drink 8 ounces of water. Why? Well for several reasons..during sleep you body loses much of its hydration. By drinking water you re-hydrate yourself and feel so much better. It also makes you fill full so you will be unlikely to stuff food into your mouth. I will drink my water each morning even before that first cup of coffee!
Now - let's talk breakfast - breakfast is so important and something that I sometimes forget. My goal is to eat breakfast each morning. It could be something as simple as yogurt but it needs to be something!
I will also remember to stretch. You know how much better you feel when you stretch right? I may not have a chance to workout each morning but a good morning stretch makes me feel so much better! Sounds simple...right? When was the last time that you really stretched?
A new morning routine is just that...a routine...something that I need to create each and every day...but...today is a new day!
What do you do each morning to ensure that your day gets started on a positive note?
