3 Things That Will Make Your Day Perfect – Even If Things Go Wrong

Published

Perfect Day - Make Your Day Perfect

Ever wonder if you will ever have a near perfect day? Something or someone always spoils it right?

Well You can. By following these 3 ‘things,’ you will have that perfect day.

Yes, even if things go wrong.

 

1. Wake up in quiet time

Meditation – Anyone can meditate and you don’t have to be a Zen master to begin either, sitting up in a comfortable position, close your eyes relax your body, be as still as you can, take 3 deep breaths and proceed with the following:

Give gratitude by thinking of 5 to 10 things you are grateful for.

Ask for guidance by thinking about you day ahead and ask the Universe for guidance, Protection and strength.

Send love to people that have upset you – forgive 2 people that have done you wrong in the past week and ask them to forgive you too.

The start to your day determines the rest of it so make a conscious decision to start off the day in a positive way, so the rest of the day will be perfect.

 

2. Be present as much as you can throughout your day

This will eliminate stress and worry because you will be focusing on the present moment not things that have happened in the past or future problems you think may occur. When you are present there is only ‘now’ and in that moment you may experience calmness, a sense of clarity and positive vibes.

Studies have revealed that being present and in the moment leads to well-being, whereas if you are constantly moving thoughts from the past and to the future, this can lead to states of unhappiness.

How to be present:

Breathe

Focus on all that is around you – use your senses, listening to nature, the weather, birds singing and feeling your skin against you clothing are you working? Pay attention to the immediate task in front of you.

Breathe….

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.” ~ Buddha

 

3. Do Your Best Today

This Idea to “do your best” has always stood out for me after reading The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, as one of the agreements. The idea of doing your best, will avoid self sabotaging ideas such as self-judgement and regret. Doing your best is taking the right action in any given day that is right for you and only you. You don’t need to compare yourself to other, you will only be sabotaging the moment.

There is no need to get a certain amount of things done by rushing, but go through your day doing everything to your best ability.

Finally

If things do go wrong it’s a choice how you deal with it you will either react or respond. Reacting is acting without thinking and responding on the other hand is thinking things through and choosing how you will deal with the situation. So even if your day doesn’t go as planned it doesn’t matter it’s your choice how you view things, circumstances and situations that may hinder the great day you were already having. If people upset you it’s their problem not your keep focused on what’s important.

    hi Diana
    Really enjoyed this article.
    I was better at being “in the moment” when I was younger. But I think I just need to get back into practicing this and focussing more on it.
    This has come at the right time.
    Thanks

    Smile and understand that everything always happens for a reason.
    Be yourself, do not change for anybody.

    Do your best slogan is good, but for me to act as we are in front of a problem is the best way to eliminate stress and to be happy

    Do Your Best Today is the key for me. Give yourself 100% to what you do and you get what you always deserve. Give, give and give to get, get and get. Help as much you can and spread a smile.

    I totally agree with all of them. It’s like people don’t want to be happy, instead they want to be miserable and unhappy. Meditation and present time are the most important things that people neglect, but the awareness is spreading these years more and more. Hope the world will be better place in the near future. Great article keep this tempo up!

    Hi Diana,

    Being present is great advice. Like Emmanuel I too often let my mind wander into the future. When a problem effects our lives it’s easy to look to the past or future. Practice makes perfect I guess.

    Also personal responsibility. Most people blame others for their bad mood, bad day or bad life. When only we can control have we feel and act. if someone upsets you, don’t allow them to continue to effect your whole day, week or month!

    I say take control back. It’s your life.

    Great post, just what I needed today.

In the world today, the only thing that we are sure of is that it will change. But by the words of Jeff Bezos, we need to focus on the things that won’t change, not on the things that will. And this is where meta-skills come into play. A meta-skill is a higher-order skill that allows other skills to be used and developed. This basically means that in order to master lower level skills, you need to master their common denominator. (more…)
