How Do You Start Your Day?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Beverly Hills

This morning I read a simple question, "How do you start your day?"

Not, "What do you do when you get up?" or "What is your routine?"  The question was aiming at attitude.  How do you wake up in the morning?  Do you start your day feeling energized and looking forward to the challenges, adventures and rewards that await you?  Or do you start your day feeling tired thinking of the twenty-four hours ahead, with a sense of dread or drudgery about the tasks you must attend to?

Chances are the way you start your day is also reflected in the way you approach many things in life.  How do you approach your work, raising your children, your social life, your health and fitness?  We all have a long laundry list of responsibilities that can feel overwhelming at times.  How would our attitude about that list change if we simply tried re-framing our approach?  Tomorrow morning, if that sneaky little sense of tiredness and dread creeps into your thoughts, try changing the story in your mind.  Look at the day as a new opportunity to grow, change, appreciate, and start afresh.

I find that a long walk in the early morning helps be set a positive pace for the day. And, it burns off a few calories.

James, after I brush my teeth, start the coffee pot, I sit down at my computer and take a mental inventory of all of my clients and their wish lists!  And for each one I search for, I get excited for them because the realization of their dream home is closer to coming true!

So I guess I start "My Day"...*EXCITED*!

Norma, the Good Lord Blessed Me with the *Glass is half-full mentality*, and I thank Him for that every day!

I start by saying one of my pastors most favorite bible quotes:

"This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
