MOTIVATION AND SELF IMPROVEMENT 10 Hours Ago

3. Give your biggest smile
Every morning when I look in the mirror I put on the most lovely smile I possibly can. Why? Because sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but other times your smile can be the source of your joy. Making it a routine to smile to yourself in the morning will send positive signals to your brain, which automatically triggers happy feelings. Spending 30 seconds smiling to yourself in the morning can change any possible negative attitude into a more positive one. Most people know that a bad attitude is harmful and something we have to change in order to advance in life. I believe having a bad attitude is like driving a car with a flat tyre: you cannot go far without changing it.

Winners exercise because it keeps you healthy and energized to face challenges with an attitude of a winner. Running for 20 minutes every morning creates the best possible outcome for the day and it increases both productivity and happiness. 20 minutes of running will increase your energy levels, while boosting your mental output and productivity. 20 minutes of running can lower your stress levels and reduces the risk of depression. Running has a profound positive impact on your body and you can feel the additional resources available to you during the day. Remember that 20 minutes of running is all it takes for the brain to produce enough endorphins to give you a rush of happiness. Go for an easy run and take in all the impressions in the morning. It is a new and fresh day ready to be won.

Being unorganized is something that can take up mental resources because you spend time and mental power worrying about unnecessary things. Most people have experienced this negative mental state. It feels exhausting and it take us into a negative mental state. Being organized makes you more resourceful and you can spend less time worrying, while having more time to focus on having a positive attitude towards the day. Before you leave home make sure to clean up the kitchen and prepare the bed so nothing can disturb you during the day. Spend 5 minutes looking in your calendar to make sure you are on top of things. When we are on top of things we are more likely to have a positive approach to our challenges and often times that is what determines if we succeed or fail.
6. Eat a winners breakfast
Fueling up the body before a long day is vital to remain in a positive state of mind and to start your day as a winner. Some people find it difficult to eat breakfast and some people never eat before lunch time. Not eating anything slows down your mind and it is impossible to stay positive and energized without having eaten anything. Prepare a nice and healthy smoothie to
