Be Bored in the Morning

“It sounds crazy, but I find it better than meditating (no need to concentrate on your breathing or chakras). Lay on the couch, turn off your electronics, look at the ceiling, and let your mind wander. I found solutions to problems, problems that need to be addressed, and motivation for my upcoming day like that.”

“It’s been so long since I sat doing nothing without looking at my phone.”

Dancing

“It doesn’t have to be good or even on beat. Just blast some music you love, sing, and jump around like an idiot for 30 minutes. Feels amazing.”

“I love dancing for fun, and I like to listen to music and dance while cleaning my house or doing the dishes.”

Sit and Allow Myself To Feel Thankful for Everything Good in My Life

“It doesn’t matter how bad my day is, and The spirit of thankfulness has improved my perspective in life.”

“Clothes laid out, coffee maker set, lunch packed, purse and work bag ready. Eating a good breakfast also makes a big difference for me.”

“I love doing that. Set up for a good next day.”

Exercise

“But make sure to exercise in ways you enjoy.”

“Everyone should get at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. And it does not have to be a serious powerlifting exercise, and any exercise is better than no exercise.”

Gardening

“It probably sounds stupid, but even walking through it and seeing the daily progress brings me much joy. And there’s something special about eating a meal made with your produce, eggs, or meat you raised or drinking tea made with your herbs.”

“I don’t enjoy gardening at all, but there is a sense of accomplishment and serenity as you watch what you’ve created take on a life of its own.”

“She likes to sleep under the bed when it’s warmer, but when the alarm goes off, she bounds up onto the bed, and I wrap her up in my fur blanket, call her a spicy bean burrito (her name is Bean), and sing her wake-up song. Then we doze a bit until my actual alarm goes off.”

Brushing My Teeth

“Neglected my dental care during my teens due to mental health issues and paid for it in my 20s ($1300 for 7 cavities). Even once a day makes a difference; I have it drilled into me that even after a night out and I’m smashed, I’ll still brush my teeth. And always remember flossing. Good teeth definitely make my life better.”

Reading for Fun

“I was so lazy to start and still only do it most days rather than all days. But it’s helped me cope so much with stress and anxiety, and after doing it for a few weeks, I really start to feel the benefits — it helps me sort out feelings and issues I don’t quite understand. For some reason, writing things out gets my mind working correctly. After a few days, I better understand why I feel the way I do and how I can help myself.”

Planning and Prepping for the Next Day

“I check my agenda and make any necessary adjustments, pack my lunch, and pick out the outfit for the next day. Sometimes I lay out any hair styling tools or things to take to work. Makes my mornings easy, and I don’t feel caught off guard.”

“This is my favorite thing to do. But it’s more of a necessity because I am not a morning person and always forget stuff if I don’t lay it out beforehand.”

Going for a Walk

“Between clients, even if I only have 20-30 minutes to take a quick stroll around my neighborhood, it works wonders for my mind. It clears my head and makes me feel calm.”

“Sometimes, I will listen to a podcast or an audiobook while walking to feed my mind, but in the warm months, I usually like to just take a stroll and listen to the sounds of nature. Amazing what a quick little stroll can do for the mind, even during the most stressful days.”
