MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY/ HOW TO; MANAGE YOUR BAD MOOD

HOW TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF TIME YOU GET ANGRY

Okay it  is Monday morning you have got up today feeling like crap and wondering why the heck do we have Mondays. The most unlucky day  Monday after one of the most loved days Sunday., so it’s not a surprise  that it is everyone’s worst day . Sunday gives you relaxation and freedom while Monday gives you work to do. I want you to start Imaging a Monday like any other day and stop thinking its the worst day remember.

YOU ARE YOUR OWN  THOUGHTS

Anyway I just wanted to give you a heads start before you read this and have some positivity . Lets get to the reason why you decide to read this.

WHY I THINK YOU SHOULD  NOT GET MAD AT EVERYTHING

The other day I went to a chicken shop and ordered chicken nuggets and fries unhealthy yes I know, but it was the only bad food I ate the whole week so I deserved some nuggets. So i placed my order and paid but, they forgot to put my order through and  I was waiting for 30 minutes just for chicken in a chicken shop. I was thinking to myself should I get mad and start complaining, but then I looked at the staff,  and how intense they were trying to get my order out as spoon as possible but they cannot fasten up the pan to fry my chicken. Then  and said to myself , Lucy, you have been a waitress before and you know how it’s like. So I  applied some understanding took some breaths and smiled. 10 minutes later my food was ready to go with an apology which i replied to saying THAT’S FINE I UNDERSTAND. I felt  good after this in my mind, spirit and I felt a sense of ease. Our mind’s  can play tricks on us basing on our past experiences  and egos but we have the power to change that.

So this morning I am coming to you saying try yo eliminate the things that tend to get you mad   by thinking of the positive. Do not let one single situation destroy your mood.

REMEMBER YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK EAT OR SAY

Today being a Monday I want you to set a challenge to your self and say I am better than this and try to get angry less by getting the positive thoughts. Lets do this challenge together I will do the same and check in a week later.

PLEASE COMMENT DOWN BELOW BY SAYING  I ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE

HOW TO: FEEL GOOD EVERY MORNING

FEEL GOOD EACH TIME YOU WAKR UP

HELLO my lovelies, One of the feelings I hate the most is waking up early in the morning and feeling like i did not rest  at all, in simple terms feeling like shit.  Their could be a number of reasons some of which may be medical while the others may just be associated with just simply our own habits . I have some of the things  I do that make me feel better each time I wake up. Well lets be honest some days I still wake up feeling down, but I  make it feel better by doing some exercise. Okay lets get down to the most important part. Some of these are similar to my previous post about, 6 Healthy habits if you are not following them then please try these .

I am making a challenge which is try one or two of these ideas, the challenge will be called TheLULUMORNINGCHALLENGE.

  1. READING

Yes you are all tired of me taking about reading but imagine, if you got into a habit of reading before bed you will  feel so much better in the morning when you wake up swap this for your social media and tell me how you  will feel the next morning.

2. PLAN YOUR MORNING

I have mentioned a couple of times on my blog, if you have not read it check  it out on my blog post on HOW TO START BELIEVING IN YOURSELF. The best part of your morning is the feeling of knowing what you are going to do the next day. Write down your plan for the next day in your dairy, the night before and plan out what you have to do. This will make your morning better ones.

3. WAKE UP EARLY EVERYDAY THE SAME TIME

Set your Alarm to wake you up each day at the same time. This will keep your mind and body on a daily  routine. Waking up the same time each day will help you sleep better at night  and a strong wakefulness. I personally set my alarm to wake up at 9:30 each day. Well the truth is that I have been trying and so far so good I will keep you updated if this is really helpful. But for sure I cannot complain.

4.DO SOME EXERCISE WHEN YOU WAKE UP

Early in the morning when you wake up , you have to try and do some exercise, at least make it a point to workout 4 times in a week. I love to do squats and front lunges they help me a lot , in times when I cannot do a full work out. But once I do some body movements it always makes me feel better for sure.

5. GET INTO A HABIT OF SAYING POSITIVE THINGS

When I  wake up in the morning I love to say positive things to myself and get into a positive feeling or sometimes I love to play slow music in the morning once I am up and running. So I would highly recommend you to try this.

6. DO NOT SLEEP ANGRY

When you are going to bed make sure you are not angry at anything , sleep in peace with a clear mind. Try to over come what ever you are feeling that is stressing you out and leave it behind before you go to sleep. This will give you a good night sleep and a good morning wake up.

“IF YOU CANNOT CHANGE SOMETHING DO NOT STRESS ABOUT IT”

so get yourself a good night sleep

My mornings are getting a lot better when I try to follow these routines . Please try to follow me and see if this will workout for you. Please do try to email me ask me about anything that you are unsure about.

6 HEALTHY HABITS I GUARANTEE WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

HEALTHY HABITS THAT WILL MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON

Before we start I have a you tube channel this is the link check it out

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU_uesLQ0pr4sQmGoZfqDGw?view_as=subscriber

HELLO. Lovies ,Living  healthy is something that we all struggle with. We are so much consumed up with so much stuff that we forget the most important part of our lives is our health.

Personally I try as much as I can to live healthy,however, one or two times I do slip off and forget my target but to be honest with you, I have gone through so much in this year that now I  decided to do “me” and make my body mind and health a better place if  I am going to handle anything. These are some of the things I have done to keep healthy and make my days really the best and the most loveable. Please I  would like to say that I am not perfect at anything at all but I do try to make things a  routine, and then  suddenly they become part of me after a long time. I am positive that if you try these habits they will work for you and they make you a better person , please try them and let me know how you are scoring out of 100.

So lets begin

  1. AVOID THE PHONE

Yes hands down I have tried this method and  it has worked for me. Before bed try not to stay on your phone for a long time ( I am writing this blog at 23:00 hahah good way to start) , instead try to read something or listen to podcasts, these really help a lot because they keep your mind fresh and good to go. Staying on your phone is never going to make your mornings amazing ones.  Social media is so tempting but you have to try to fight it for sure. The other thing is that when you wake up in the morning avoid looking at the phone as your first things this pretty much will determine how your day goes. Occupy yourself with other things during the day, so that you can forget your phone otherwise look for a distraction.

2. READ BOOKS OR WATCH INSPIRATION VIDEOS

I do not know how many times I  have said  this on my blog &videos and I do not know how much i can stress this . Reading books and topics that are motivational are really a good healthy habit , diverting your mind to something else, can change your mind and how you may think about yourself. Reading is so much more important and useful, more than you can imagine, so if you want too feel better please try to read as much as much as you can  my favourite books are the motivational and inspirational ones.

3. EAT HEALTHY

One thing I am going to openly tell you is that eating healthy can be a bit pricey , but let me tell you  if you start eating healthy now, your future will be brighter do not think of how pricey it might be but rather what are the benefits in a long run. Always remember a health  mind in a  healthy body.  Trying to eat well is the most important thing and will save your health in general.

BECOME HEALTHY AND HAPPY.png

4. WORKOUT

The one things I am going to tell you is that you will never regret working out but will always regret not working out . Meditation, Yoga  and Exercise will save you and this healthy habit always personally makes me feel good. Each time I workout  my day feels so better, be it my week this habit will save you a lot . I do not want to make this blog long by telling you the benefits of working out, which you already know and have read several times. So please try at least once or twice in a week to make these baby steps towards it.

5.TRY TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Learning something new is s great way to expand your knowledge, it can be learning to cook ,  learning a different language ,learning to drive , it could be anything just try to learn something new. I am trying to learn French as a new language , because I would like to know other languages, and I am trying to read about the Ego and understand the mind. So yeah learning something new makes your mind to move forward and help your self esteem. This is a good healthy habit, its like feeding your brain with direct food to grow.

6. APPRECIATE YOURSELF

First thing in the morning when you wake up is to look in the mirror, and say the most amazing things about yourself and live by them. As for me when I wake up in the morning, I usually say things like, today is going to be a great day, today I will accomplish lot of things or I say Lucy you have done well and you are going to do more.

So my lovies their you have it the most healthy habits that will help you a lot and make you a better person . I promise you if you try these habits you will be abetter on a day today basis

HOW TO START BELIEVING IN YOURSELF

Check out my You Tube channel as well

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU_uesLQ0pr4sQmGoZfqDGw?view_as=subscriber

BELIEF NOT ONLY A BIBLICAL WORD

“YOUR MIND IS YOUR STRONGEST HIDDEN WEAPON TRAIN ITA ND THE REST WILL FOLLOW”

Believing in yourself is the only way you can reach your full potential;

Before we go any further let’s make this clear,    I still struggle with belief on some occasions once in a while. This is often noticed when I feel I cannot do something and I am still in doubt with myself. So please as you read this just know I am a victim who is trying to get out of the situation and so far so good,

Just a little back ground why I am writing this, I hear and see a lot of people struggling with believing in themselves and I totally get this for sure. I grew up in Africa my whole childhood and teenage life, so it was difficult to  put myself out their, especially due to the fact that I went to a boarding school and we were more than 30, 000 students locked up in a fence, so you can imagine for sure.  I never believed in myself, that I could actually achieve anything, or be anyone but this changed when I decided to follow some quick steps and I started  reading more but this happened with me identifying what my set backs are Which are belief and Fear.

So in this blog, I am going to show you or tell you some of the  ways you have to start from in order to believe in yourself. Most Christians  reading this blog might have already practiced it and probably said it a million times ( I believe) but the question is “do you  believe in what you are saying or you  are just saying it for the sake of just saying It”.

Enough with the rambling lets start

  1.  SELF ACCEPTANCE

The very first things is to learn to accept yourself for who you are and what you are , how can you fully believe in something that you don’t accept. We cannot choose parts that we think  we like about ourselves and leave the rest, you must fully accept what you are, and if you don’t like that part then work on it but you must accept you.

This may be difficult in many ways because as children growing up we are slightly dedicated to what we think we are, by determining what we do and  conclusions are made. At some point in your life you probably  felt that this is not right and  true and  you feel you are something else or your true self is not what the society thinks of you.  For me till now no matter how many good things I try to do, I sometimes feel that people will not accept it because they have a self believe in themselves that ” this is who she is “. however,  I am here to tell you that, you have to try to understand who you are and what you  are then  accept it, no matter what society  says.

2. MAKE A LIST

Make a list of things you feel you  want to accomplish and do not leave out anything you must put down everything and believe, say it out loud that I believe I am going to be successful, I believe I am going to  be better.  And everyday cross the ones you have managed to accomplish and trust me it feels great.  In this list make sure to set some goals that you want to accomplish  see how much progress you are making.

3. BE AROUND UPLIFTING FRIENDS

The worst mistake you can ever make is trying to be around people who don’t believe in you and are constantly putting you down. Minimalize your contact with them, because  it may not be the right thing to get red of them  at the moment but,  limit what you say or do around them because you know they are critical people and this does not help if you are on  a journey or self belief.

4. READING, LEARNING AND GROWING

You have to put yourself in a position of learning about yourself and understanding your limitations, as well as self-awareness. Learn more about yourself by going beyond your limitations and doing things you thought you would never do . Try to read more of motivation books that will give you a heads start, for example, I am currently reading two books yes people, two books one is about the 9 to 5 if you are in the UK you know what  I mean by 9 to 5 and the other book  is about Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway. These books put a smile on my face, and constantly make me feel better and grow my mind as well. If you want me to give you full details on these books   please email me at thelucy.a57@gmail.com and I will for sure give you more details on these. Do some sort of self exploitation attend events, understand how the world is and how it works. If you have social medial follow the right people who give you more to learn than desire.

5. STOP COMPARING YOURSELF

This is something that everybody does for sure, but have you ever thought to yourself that, we are not all the  same in terms of personalities and who we are, so why do you think someone’s else’s success should be the same as yours. Be confident in yourself and What you have accomplished I always say every little success to anther step is a big win

STOP COMPARING AND FIND YOU

Stop comparing in terms of image, career, success relationships. yours is yours and not anybody else. You have the power to accomplish anything.

“YOU HAVE THE POWER TO BE ANYTHING THAT YOU WANT, BUT FIRST, BELIEVE  IN YOUR SELF AND STOP COMPARING”

With that, I want to wish all my readers that have come to the end of this blog good luck with all your endeavour’s, to find yourself but first remember you are the most important thing in this world Fuck the rest haha.
