5 tips for // Having a great day

When you say good bye to someone, it's customary for people to say have a great day. The definition of a great day varies from one person to the next. It's the matter of how you look at things and how you define a great day. To me having a great day can be intentional, it's not accidental. 
Here are a five tips I've used for years every time I felt down, hopeless or depressed. Having a great day is possible.


#1. Smile - "Smile though your heart is aching, Smile even though it's breaking. When there are clouds in the sky you'll get by." Remembered that beautiful song? It's true that when you smile no matter what, your brain will intepret the action as happy and you will definitely be on the right track to have a great day

#2. Forgive others, anger hurt you more.You just cannot have a great day if in your heart and your mind is full with hate and anger.  Forgiveness help you let go of the past, old resentment and open your heart for more positive things. This is also part of letting go and moving forward. 

#3. Start your day with "Dua [or pray]
Ask Allah for a great day a head and all the positive things you want to happen that day. This is part of 'Begin with the end in Mind' mindset that should be apart of your daily life. When you think positive things and ask or demand positive things than something magical happened! Guest what?!! You are going to see and find positive things around you.

#4. Simplify your life
Lately we have the tendency to complicate things, either our relationship, our work, our process of doing things and life in general, which can add up to a stressful day. The key is to simplify. Any aspect of your life that you can make it simple and get the job done, then do it. Checking things of your to do lists does feels great , hence will result in you having a great day.

#5. Wear red dress
I realize something, color can really effects your mood and your outlook on life. Wear something bright and something with color today. Before you know it, your mood, your energy and your perspective changed. And you will feel like to today is going to be a great day!

I hope that these simple tips can help boost your spirit and energy for the day. Till next time.....
