The word Everything on a To-Do list on a dry erase board

7.  The Fun List

Make a list of the things that make you happy and then do them! Of course we can’t do everything anytime we like, so fill your list with big things (rock climbing) and small things (reading a book) so that no matter what, you can do something that makes you happy every single day!

 

8.  The Food List

In addition to your fun list, write down your favorite foods, whatever those might be, and try to eat at least one of them every single day. To make this work, be sure you choose some big things (roast turkey) and some smaller things (fresh pears) so that no matter how busy your day, you can always find time to eat at least one thing that you really love.

 

9. Break It Down

Sometimes, we get bogged down by looking at a large task and thinking that it’s simply overwhelming or feeling as if you will never finish because it will be so time consuming. You’ve probably heard this before but that doesn’t make it any less true: take baby steps. Let’s say that you desperately need to clean out and organize your house. You can choose to do this by time or by project.

For example, if time is something you don’t have much of, choose one room or drawer or closet, and set a timer for X number of minutes, whatever it is you have to spare. Even if it’s only 10 minutes, that will be fine. Spend 10 minutes working on that one area. When the timer goes off, stop. Yes, things might be all over the floor but that’s OK. You can pick up those things tomorrow during your next 10 minute session. Alternately, you can work on one project at a time. Even choosing to organize just one drawer, or one closet, or one dresser each day will add up over time. Work on that one area until you are finished and don’t go back to do more until the next day. Little steps like this will add up to big changes over time.

10. Be Grateful

If you take a moment to look around at others, or at people in other countries, or when you consider the larger problems that there are in the world, you will begin to see just how lucky you really are. Anytime you can’t see the forest for the trees, so to speak, start naming all the things in your life that you are grateful for. Don’t know how to get started? Think of all the things that you would miss if they suddenly disappeared: your spouse, your children, your parents, your home, your dog, your bed, etc. etc. Bet you never realized how many things you have been blessed with in your life.

Your thoughts create your emotions, so make them good thoughts every single day!
