How Do You Start Your Day?

"I don't have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness - it's right in front of me if I'm paying attention and practicing gratitude." — Brene Brown

Start every day on a positive, dreamy note, like the one pictured in this gorgeous piece by Daria Ivaniuk.

Do you wake up and start worrying about the day ahead? Are you stressed about the problems you might face or reflecting on difficulties you experienced yesterday?

Or do you wake up feeling grateful that you’re alive, that you get to live another day, that you can make an impact, that you can take on important, meaningful challenges?

The first few thoughts you have each morning can greatly determine your entire day. Try to be conscious about them; I’d suggest thinking about things you’re grateful for, as it will help you start the day on a positive, optimistic note.
