Hello and welcome back to “Make a Fresh Start,” a monthlong series where I am sharing small ways to orient your life in a positive direction in the new year. Can you believe we are entering the last week of January already?
For our final week, I will be sharing tips on things we can do to renew and refresh our minds.
Today’s thought is something you can do before you even get out of bed! The idea is to welcome each day with a moment of prayer or meditation. When the alarm goes off, let yourself wake up by breathing deeply and inviting good things to come into your path. Be thankful for the night’s sleep (even if it wasn’t your best!). Ponder the day ahead and consider what you might be looking forward to. If you are a person of faith, invite God to bless the day and fill you with His power and direction.
There is an old expression that attributes a bad day to “waking up on the wrong side of the bed.” While we can’t control what might confront us during the day, we can take a few moments each morning to center ourselves so we can commence the day with a positive mindset.
How do you begin your day?
