When you take a test, you study for it. When you have a dinner party, you plan for it. Doesn’t it make sense that if you want to have a happy day, you envision it?
Positive thinking takes a little planning at the beginning of each day. After the planning takes place, it is smooth sailing.
Can you just imagine a happy day, every day? Can you imagine leaving behind days of worry, fear and frustration. Why not spend a moment or two each day planning for ways to let your happiness shine through? Here are some more ideas:
- Go to sleep thinking of all the people with whom you will meet tomorrow. Think of what you like about each one. Envision yourself laughing with them tomorrow. Enjoy their smiles. (By the way, this is a great way to fall asleep). If there is someone you have not gotten along well with during the day, picture this person bringing you a bunch of balloons. Picture both of you laughing at the wind. Plan to see the brighter side of this person next time you meet. Realize you are both of the same fabric.
- Put a ring on your finger. When you rise, imagine how good you will feel in the outfit you are about to wear. Plan to be attentive to your desire to be happy by wearing a ring on your finger to remind you that happiness can only be blocked by your negative thoughts. Each time you see your ring, check the way you feel. If you are feeling bad, pause and change gears. Allow happiness to flow through your being throughout the day.
- Use your smart phone’s alarm. Set your phone’s alarm or timer for an hourly check throughout the day. When you hear the reminder, check to see what you are doing and how you feel. What are you thinking about? Is there a smile on your face or are you lost in self-imposed attitudes that are causing you to feel bad? You can change your thoughts immediately and remember your intention to be loyal to the happiness and peace that lives within you. This is a great way to create habits of well-being.
- Plan your day by removing all worry. It is important to plan your day. It is powerful planning when you remove worry, concern, anger, defense and any other negative thinking to your plan. For instance, if your plan is to improve at work and you say to yourself, I must not make anymore mistakes when I type, changes are that you are planning to make mistakes and you’ll wonder why your day went so poorly. However, if you plan to improve at work by allowing your natural ability to be happy shine through everything you do, and you say, I love who I am and I am eager to share my wonderful abilities to make all that I do helpful to myself and others, I will be able to work mistake-free because I am in tuned with the best of everyone else at work. Plan without worry.
Plan to be loyal to who you truly are and all things will follow. It is possible to have a worry-free, guilt-free day. It is possible to have heaven on earth. It really is our choice.
