Let’s make today a GREAT day!!! Simple steps can set the tone for your day and make your day better… these are five I like to keep in mind when I want to make the most of my day. Give them a try! (And side note – if you haven’t yet signed up for my FREE Total Body Toning mini-challenge – do it now! It starts Monday!!)
Make a mini to-do list. I looooove making lists! One of my favorite things is to wake up, have a glass of lemon water and my coffee, and think about what I want to accomplish that day. It could be as simple as “call my daughters” or a long list of errands I need to run. Crossing my to-do’s off my list gives me a sense of satisfaction, plus a list helps me to organize my day.
Get in a workout. This one probably isn’t a surprise! But what may surprise you is that I don’t always want to workout – it’s true! Some days I wake up and am just not feeling it. But once I put on my workout clothes and shoes, and get to it, I am always glad I started and feel so much better afterwards. Even a 10-minute workout is better than nothing – it will get your blood flowing and boost your mood! My DeniseAustin.com membership gives you access to hundreds of workouts that you can do anytime, anywhere – including 10-minute workouts! Try this 10-minute workout from my 10-Week Plan!
Make a healthy meal. I love to cook – it is soothing, inspiring and satisfying all at the same time! I usually focus on a healthy lunch or dinner, depending on what my plans are. I love to make my Beet and Lentil Salad for lunch, or a healthy dinner from my Stop The Clock Nutrition Plan. It’s a fun way to keep your healthy eating goals on track!
Spend time with friends and loved ones. I try to practice positivity every day, including by hanging out or talking with the people I am closest too. It helps keep me grounded and can align my mood and outlook in a positive, healthy direction.
Do a breathing exercise. I try to do breathing exercises in the morning, but often do them throughout the day – especially if I am feeling stressed out. My Stop The Clock Fitness Plan has an entire section on breathing – including breathing exercises to help you manage your day.
I hope you like these tips – try to implement a few today and see if they make your day better! And don’t forget to sign up for my FREE Total Body Toning mini-challenge starting March 25th!
