1. SHE WAKES UP EARLY:
Did you know you are more likely to have a happier and more successful day, just by waking up a bit earlier and getting out of bed? Sometimes life is exhausting or we stay up way too late – and our bodies need rest. But happy people regulate their sleep well, get 7-8 hours of sleep and wake up refreshed and ready for a new day.
2. SHE FINDS HER SMILE:
And she finds it daily. After you wake up and hop in the bath/shower – do something that makes you feel good. Find your smile within the early stages of waking up – whether you turn on the radio, pray/meditate, cruise Social Media or have the perfect hair day! Find your smile and wear it ALL day long.
3. SHE SEES BEYOND IMPERFECTIONS:
Happy women understand that life isn’t going to be flawless. They don’t judge others – in fact, they love almost everyone they come in contact with. They look for the good in their co-workers, their family members and even in themselves.
4. SHE PATS HERSELF ON THE BACK:
We aren’t supposed to be too prideful – nobody wants to hang out with someone too into themselves. BUT – happy women are proud of what they do. They recognise when they accomplish something. They finish what they start. And they are always trying to become better.
5. SHE GETS MOVING:
As much as I would love to lay in bed and watch my favourite show re-runs all day in pyjamas – as a woman, we just can’t do that (at least not all the time). Get up, start moving and get your heart rate up. Go for a walk or run around the block. Go to the gym or do an at-home workout. After you get your body moving – I promise, you won’t regret it. “Man, I wish I didn’t work out,” said no one ever.
6. SHE IS HER OWN FRIEND:
We can be our own worst enemy or our own best friend – it is up to US to decide. Don’t let your mind bring you down or tell you not to be happy. You deserve to find joy. Happy people are their own best friend. They are proud of who they are and have confidence in what they do every day. Love the person in the mirror and think positively about yourself.
7. SHE SURROUNDS HERSELF WITH HAPPY PEOPLE:
It is true that your environment around you can make you who you are. Did you know if you are constantly with negative people, you are more likely to become negative too? We each rub off on each other and other people’s attitudes can truly affect ours.
Be around those who uplift you and make you feel better.
8. SHE IS GRATEFUL:
Happy women rarely take a day for granted. They recognise that every day is a blessing. They don’t use the word “luck” – they know that everything happens for a reason and they are blessed. Count your many blessings – name them one by one.
9. SHE HAS LEARNED TO SLOW DOWN:
As women, often times we feel like we have so much to do. Give yourself a break. Take the time to smell the roses. Don’t feel like you need to do everything in one day. Happy women don’t compare themselves to others. They know who they are and they do their things at their own paces. Do what is best for you.
10. SHE MAKES THE BEST OUT OF EVERYTHING:
“The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. Find a way to focus on the up side and incorporate good habits to help you! We really do have two choices in every situation – choose the high road – smile, laugh and make the best of it.
Happy women don’t have the best of everything – they just make the best of everything
