There is a Blog that has similar aims as mine. It is called: “Only Positive News – Positive news updates and inspiring stories from around the world”: From yesterday’s post, I am quoting this message:
If you think about it, the morning (and Monday) are natural beginnings. When you lie in bed, waking, slowly introduce some positive thoughts into your head. Again, you may be feeling a deep sense of malaise and dread at the approaching week, so it’s alright to make it up! Take a few deep breaths. Clear your mind. Relax. Say something positive, out loud if possible. “I’m grateful to be alive today.” “The sun looks beautiful through the curtains.” “My body feels good.” “I’m strong and healthy.” Another great way to reinforce the “first morning positivity?” Exercise. If you can’t go for a small walk or run, try some deep breaths and gentle stretching. Put on some inviting classical or jazz music.
The message here? You don’t always have to feel positive to be positive. It’s a choice – a choice that isn’t always easy to make – but a choice nonetheless. Wake up! Your life has begun.”
Another News item:
“Good news starts from within. On some levels, we all know that. We are not victims but co-creators in this Universe. We’ve discussed the importance of positive self-talk in our daily life but did you ever think that your immediate environment can affect your positivity?
Today, try a small experiment. Change a few things in your household that naturally lift your spirits.
Light a candle – nothing warms up a room than a lit candle. Because of its elemental properties, it resonates deep within us, providing us with natural comfort (try to burn the good candles such as soy or beeswax – not the overly perfumey, toxic ones!)
Add a little greenery – you don’t need to buy a dozen roses. Walk around your yard and snip a few pieces. Even in winter, I’ve put some evergreen in vases with bright red berries. Beautiful and soothing.
Sage – if you don’t know what sage is, do a little research. Sage is a wonderfully fragrant herb that has been used by Native Americans to rid people and areas of negative energy by an act called “smudging.” The nice part with sage? It naturally cleanses the air. No need for aerosol cans laden with all sorts of junk!
Color and Light – Since Spring is nearby, look around your home for ways to add a little color and extra light. Again, you don’t have to break the bank. It could be as simple as cleaning your windows or opening your curtains a bit more. Or maybe a new cover for a bed or couch. Or some bright throw pillows.
Positive environments encourage positive moods encourage positive news. Its that simple!”
