We are less than a week into the new year. Chances are you have taken a few moments to consider how you want the new year to go for you. Maybe you made resolutions, goals, or promises to yourself. It’s important to train ourselves to take time to stay inspired as we make those changes.
Here are a few of my favourite ways to maintain a positive focus…
Watch uplifting movies. I recently enjoyed Wayne Dyer’s movie The Shift. To give you some instant happy vibes from the movies, check out its theme song called Song Inside by Ethan Lipton and His Orchestra. It always makes me smile.
Sign up for happy daily emails. Notes from the Universe from Mike Dooley at tut.com have turned my frown upside down on many occasions.
Have a good laugh. In fact, giggle like a child. Over the holidays, I watched three of the animated Ice Age movies with my family, and there was no one under 40 in the room at the time.
Spend time with children or dogs. Borrow them (with permission, of course) if necessary. It’s awfully hard to not smile when a child is figuring out how to use a new toy, or a dog romps with joy through the snow.
I can always use a good laugh or another inspirational lift. What do you recommend?
