Life isn’t always butterflies and rainbows. FACT.
We’ve all heard the cliched phrases “You have good days and you have bad days” and “Some days are better than others”. What is it about those “good days” that makes them better than others?
In the words of Robin Sharma “your days are your life in miniature”. How you live your day, craft your life. To have a spectacular life you have to live your days spectacularly well. Simple as that.
Here are ten sure-fire ways how you can make your day really amazing.

#1 Change Your Alarm Ringingtone
Change your alarm to your favorite song ever. What about that old house-party classic that finally got you up and dancing? Trust me you’ll bounce out of bed ready for the day ahead!
#2. Have a Good Breakfast
A good breakfast sets you up for the day. It makes you more energetic, smarter, productive. What makes a good breakfast? Dieticians recommend high fibre cereals with low fat milk, fresh fruit, wholegrain toast with baked beans, spaghetti, tomato or egg, and yoghurt.
#3 Pay attention to Answers
When you ask “how are you?”, actually listen to the answer. It’s a throw-away question, and we don’t really pay attention to what people say in response. But try to. It’s supposed to lift your spirits, and help you connect.
#4 Call Someone
Call someone who makes you happy and helps you to ‘break-state’. These persons will remind you the great life exist out there despite your busy schedule. This is a enough motivation for the day.
#5 Positive Affirmations
Positive thinking can let you do things better than negative thinking. Look into the mirror and tell yourself, “I’m great!“, ” I can do it“,”I am the best of my kind!”, “I’m beautiful/handsome!” Even when you are asked “How are you?” Don’t just say “fine” or “I’m OK.” How about saying “I’m full of life“, I’m super fantastic“, “I’m great“. Do this and you light up the stars in your world.
#6 Do Exercise
A great mind lives in a great body. Research shows that movement helps us to be more creative, learn more effectively and decreases our stress levels.
If you read about the greatest thinkers, entrepreneur, authors, innovators, motivational speakers they all have a common habit of meditation. Meditation helps you to be calm mentally and physically. Remember only a calm mind is responsible for doing all the greatest invention and business that the world has ever seen.
#8 Create a Compelling, Clutter Free Work Space
Having a well organised office provides you with a solid foundation and gives you the confidence to pursue your dream. So clean up your act. De-junk your life. In other words, get organised.
#9 Embrace the Weather
If it’s raining then go outside in a raincoat for ten minutes and jump in a puddle. If it’s sunny then go and buy some sunglasses and sit in the park. Have a taste of nature!
#10 Hangout with Friends
Spending time with friends is, in and of itself, a great way to make the best out of your day. You can go to the park, volunteer together, go to the cinema, brainstorm together, play board games or even go on a walking tour of your town and lots more.
