We’ve been talking in the last few e-mails about better strategies for crafting your life.
One of the most important things to understand before embarking on this process is that your mindset determines your perspective which in turn colors your feelings, actions, thoughts, and behaviors.
And your mindset likes to bias toward the negative. If something has happened to you in the past and resulted in a certain outcome, your brain likes to categorize that outcome, prescribe a reaction, and keep it for the next time it happens again.
That beautiful brain of yours likes to predict so it can be prepared, and given free rein, it is often likely to choose to be prepared for the worst, not the best.
But because of this nature, the outset, or the outcome of certain moments in your day can actually define your day and make it all look and feel far worse than it has been or actually will be!
What if we were to tell you that there is a simple way you can begin to change your mindset and as a result, move the needle far more towards positive than negative?
End Each Day By Counting Your Wins
Just before you go to bed each night, take a moment to count your wins for the day. What were a few of the things you accomplished today? What were a few of the things you felt really good about experiencing? What were some of the things you did that align with you?
By just simply counting your wins you are creating a forced moment of positivity in your day.
By doing it at the end of the day, your brain will recognize the positive energy and move you to a calmer place, and thus more likely a place where you will sleep more deeply. Good sleep equals a greater chance of waking up on the right side of the bed the next day.
Counting your wins will help you begin to own your new day!
Starting your day in a positive state of mind won’t make everything perfect, but it will begin to tip the scales towards the positive, and help you continue on your journey towards living your best life.
