So what can we do to make sure we get the most out of everyday? 

Here are some tips to help making everyday great

1.Self treat

it is essential that you look after yourself, eat a healthy diet, get plenty of exercise, make sure you get enough sleep and take care of yourself in general. Having a daily schedule is also a necessity, by planning a daily schedule you are to make sure you give yourself some “me” time, we all need time to our self to just enjoy we like, be it listening to music, taking a walk, or a hobby. 

2.Forgive yourself:

If at the end of your day you find you didn’t accomplish all that you set out to do then forgive yourself and say to yourself “I did the best I possibly could and made the most of today, tomorrow is a brand new day”. Don’t beat yourself up about some minor things you didn’t accomplish and worry about it, there’s always tomorrow and as long as you made the most out of today that’s all that matters. 

3.Your daily to-do-list:

We all have certain chores that must be taken of on a daily basis, do these chores in order of importance and don’t let them pile up, however sing along to the radio while you are doing the dishes, dance along with the vacuum as you push it around the house. Take pleasure in doing mundane chores and turn them into an enjoyable experience instead of moaning and grumbling about having to do them.

4.Take regular breaks:

Whether you are at home or work, give yourself a break every now and again, even if its only for 5 minutes, learn a quick relaxation technique and unwind if you are beginning to feel tense. If at work then get up and stretch your legs or grab a cup of coffee and say hello with a smile to everyone you pass on your way to the coffee machine. Do something you enjoy doing Make it a point to set some time aside just for you, to do what you want to do, this could be reading, taking a bubble bath, meditating, going to the gym or basically anything which you really enjoy doing and which makes you feel good and puts a smile on your face. 

5.And lastly think positively

Try to have a positive attitude towards life even when things aren’t particularly going the way you want them to, look for the good in the situation and what you can learn from it, rather than looking at it in a totally negative way.
