5 Ways to Have a Better Day

American writer Margaret Bonnano once said, "It is only possible to live happily-ever-after on a day-to-day basis." She was right. Rather than dwelling on yesterday or worrying about tomorrow, embrace today and use these tips to make it your best one ever!

Get up 30 minutes earlier. This may sound like just common sense but it is truly one of the simplest changes you can make to ensure a better day. Many of us spend our mornings rushing around, ending up stressed out and late. The extra half hour will allow you to relax and avoid the rush.

Believe that you will have a great day. While we can't control everything that happens to us, we can control how we react. If you tell yourself that you are going to have a great day (and believe it) you will!

Put thought into your appearance. If you look great, you feel great. Rather than grabbing clothes from the top of the laundry pile or groping blindly in your closet, take a few moments to put together an outfit that feels positive and confident. You can even do this the night before.

Let go of the little things. We've all had something small go wrong and "ruin" the rest our day. Don't let it. Whether you have to count to ten, look for the silver lining or just accept and move on, find your own way to avoid reacting negatively to life's little daily hassles.

Call on a friend. Emotional connections are important to our health and happiness. Spend at least a few minutes each day talking to someone you really care about. A friendly voice or smile will brighten any day!
