Everyday we positively or negatively – consciously or unconsciously invest in our lives. The results of these investments are clearly seen in the quality of our lives. Being intentional with our early morning investments – increase the likelihood of a happier, healthier, more fulfilling day. Consistently implementing the four investments below, can ultimately result in a better quality of life for you and those around you.
1. Hydrate: Kick-start your body by drinking an entire bottle of water (possibly with Green Superfood) placed there the night before. along with your daily multivitamins
2. Be Grateful: Take (at least) five minutes to recite the things you’re grateful for. Beginning each statement with “Thank You for..” or “I am Grateful for..” .. This exercise replaces any negative internal conversations we would’ve had. Instead of saying “I have to go to work \ school \ etc..” we can say “I get to go to work \ school \ etc..” .. therefore acknowledging the activity as an opportunity versus an undesirable chore. Try your best to recover the excitement you’ve felt during orientation. You can be many things in this world, make sure one of them is “Grateful”.
3. Exercise: Increase the blood flow and oxygen throughout your body by performing whichever form of exercise you enjoy. It doesn’t have to be physically demanding just enough to elevate your heart rate.
4. Emotionally invest: Profess your love to your loved ones. Whether it’s face to face, a call or a text. It doesn’t have to be overly dramatic.. just tell how much you love and appreciate them. How you’ve noticed progress in some areas and how proud you are of them. Expressing love or pride in someone is a priceless emotional investment. People may forget or forgive what you’ve done but rarely forget – how you’ve made them feel.
