How do I stay in a good mood? How do I wake up earlier?

How I stay in a good mood: I try to keep my thoughts in check and recognize when I’m allowing negative thoughts to take over, and when they do, I try to find an opposite truth to counter the negative thought. I also watched an interview with Tony Robbins where he talked about movement being a quick and easy solution to immediately changing your mindset, like clapping your hands together three times, and really feeling it and meaning it. I was surprised to learn how effective this is. It forces you to send a different energy out into your world, and it makes you feel better right then and there.

How I wake up earlier: I show up for my workouts at 5:15 in the morning on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, so I set my alarm for 4:15 a.m., program my coffee maker to brew at 4:05 (the smell of coffee lures me out of bed), stick to a strict morning and evening ritual that helps me stay on track and get enough sleep. I don’t get up at 4:15 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I still wake up at 5:00 in the morning and get my day started, so I am somewhat sticking to the same schedule. I have learned that being disciplined is key, and that having a routine and a ritual is imperative for me when it comes to being aligned with my goals. I just tell myself to show up. I may not feel like it when I first wake up, but I do it anyway, and by the time I’ve brushed my teeth and put on my gym clothes, I’m wide awake and ready to take on the day.

I remind myself that happiness is the path I want to choose and prioritize. When an issue or confrontation is tempting me to become upset, I pause and ask myself if I want to give into these negative emotions. Usually I do not, and foocus the present, on smiling, and thinking of all the good in my life that I'm grafteful for.

I commit to going to bed early to get all my sufficient slseep so that when my alarm goes off at the early time I chose, I am ready to get up.

I stay in a good mood by waking up early. I am not a morning person but I combat this by giving myself 1 and a half to 2 hours before I have to leave the house. I have a 1 hour and 15 minutes routine that I give myself more than enough time to do, leaving room for lingering in the shower or someone in my family interrupting my flow. When I am successful in completing my morning routine, I always feel fresh and ready for the day.

Each day is a new beginning so start it in a good mood. What you put out in energy, you will get back so smile and be grateful and happy to be alive and love the way you want to live!

I find that if I stick to my own personal morning routine that I feel better and am happier throughout the day. When I skip it, the drag I feel getting up keeps ahold of me. I get up early by going to bed early. And because I get up the same time each day, it initial drag of getting up is less than at the start. I.E. It gets easier.

Some days it’s hard to stay in a good mood. I do my best to try and keep the things that are going right first and foremost in my mind. I try to take a moment and breathe and remind myself how fortunate I truly am. As far as getting up earlier….well…I think it takes practice and a routine adjustment. Set that alarm a little earlier every day!!!

Why do you need to stay in a good mood? Moods come and go, it’s your attitude that determines if you see things in a positive or negative light. And in the end nothing in life is ”positive” or ”negative”, things just Are or Happen. It’s You who decides if things are bad or good for you. It’s all about your choice and willingness to train your brains to focus on the things you see as ”positive”.
