5 Ways to Brighten your Day

5 Ways to Brighten your DayWe all have ups and downs in life.  But, if we know how to maintain our equipoise when turbulent waters rock our boat, then we understand that  life is all about embracing our true nature and living and cherishing each experience.

What are some of the ways that we can add life to our days?

1). Early to rise

The early morning is an ideal time for starting your day.  Either by taking a long walk in the outdoors, spending time in prayer or meditation, yoga, jogging, planning the day ahead.  The sound of the birds, the sunrise, and the serene atmosphere are ideal for these activities.

2). Enjoy breakfast with fresh juice

Breakfast is acknowledged by many to be the most important meal of the day.  So instead of rushing to work, make sufficient time to enjoy a good breakfast with your family.  A glass of fresh juice in the morning is very refreshing.

3). Take  a break

If you have a sedentary job, it is important to take a break to stretch your legs or relax your hands and eyes.  Looking at the monitor for long hours or typing at a keyboard for long can be strenuous.

4). Pursue your interest

All of us have a passion, an interest or a hobby.  Be it playing soccer, reading, writing playing soccer or badminton, music, toastmasters etc.   Making time for these activities is important as they fire up our passion and keep us motivated.

5). Bonding with family

With the advent of social media, technological gadgetry like smartphones, tablets and the like, we find no time for face-to-face communication.  After work, we have to spend some time with our loved ones to strengthen our bonds.

By cherishing and expressing gratitude for the things that we have, we can add so much more meaning to our lives.
