Make Every Day Awesome!

How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? 
Happy, and ready to start the day? Or miserable, and wanting to go back to sleep?
Constantly daydreaming? Permanent frown on your face?

Which would you choose;
The Stressful, Busy Day?
Or The Happy, Awesome Day?

Nowadays, most days are good days for me.
I have learnt to appreciate the little things every day and enjoy each moment when it happens.

Here is your route to ensuring you love and appreciate every day.

Wake up with a smile.
Appreciate the sun beaming through the curtains, look forward to your day ahead, 
and just smile :)

Be thankful for what you have.
Whether it be a child, a spouse, a bed to sleep in, or even the last teabag! Appreciate that not everyone has these things, but you do. So be thankful for that.

Do 1/2 of your to-do list.
I am positive that you don't have to do it all today right?
What will happen if you do some of it next week? Nothing.
Tackle the important things that need to be done today. The rest can wait.

Go for a walk.
Get out of the house and go for a walk. Explore somewhere new and interesting. Taking photos of your adventure will help you to appreciate the little things (and remember them tomorrow).

Have a living room dance party.
Stick on your favourite songs and have your own private disco in your living room.
(A favourite of mine and Baby Boo's)

Try something new.
What have you wanted to do in the past, but never got around to it?
Whether it's getting a new hairstyle, wearing a peculiar item of clothing (that you secretly love!) or even sign up for a class. Do it today. What have you got to lose?

Think about your Perfect Life.
Begin the path to having it today

Help someone else.
Hold a door open for a stranger, help a neighbour bring in their shopping or help your spouse look for something. A little help goes a long way.

Express your creative side.
Grab a notebook, some paint or sewing kit and let your creative juices flow.

Be present.
Stop daydreaming and bring yourself back to the moment. This moment. Focus on where you are, what you are doing and who you are with. Don't let this moment pass you by. Remember, we cannot change the past and we cannot predict the future. 

Spend quality time with a loved one. 
Switch off all distractions. Enjoy each other's company. 

Relive your childhood.
What did you enjoy doing when you were a child?
Playing at the park?
Making mudpies?
Watching cartoons?
Act like a child and relive the good old days.

Do you have any tips for making every day awesome?

I think that people often forget to appreciate the little things. Sometimes its great to just put things into perspective and take some time to make your soul happy!
