At the start of every day, each one of us has a choice to make. That choice is, will we be happy and productive or will we simply hope to get through the day.
Happy and productive people live longer, enjoy life more, tend to have more free time (because they make it a priority and schedule it in) and get more done in less time.
They are also magnets that attract success into their life.
Choosing to live in a happy and productive state is simple and difficult at the same time.
It’s simple because all you have to do it change your mind and create a new outcome when things are stressful. It’s difficult for the same reason. When you’re in a “funk” it can be hard to break the pattern.
The easiest way to break out of a stressful state is to walk away.
Take a few minutes to sit quietly and close your eyes.
After you calm down for a few seconds, picture the outcome you would rather create and imagine the steps you would take to get there.
Write down the steps you envisioned and follow them. By writing the steps down, you are creating an action items list.
All you have to do is simply choose to follow those steps instead of remaining lost in the confusion and stress of a moment.
You’ll find your mood lift. As you accomplish the steps, you will also find stress dissipates.
