5 Things to Remind Yourself of Every Day

How to Live Each Day to Its Fullest

We all have days when we don’t feel like getting out of bed. Occasionally, the best thing to do on days like that is to take a “well” day, as opposed to a sick day, to nurture your spirit and body. However, most of the time, taking the day off is not practical or advisable. To live each day to its fullest, even those tough days, remind yourself of the following concepts:

1. If you’re still alive, then your life has purpose. It’s that simple. If you woke up, then there’s still more to accomplish in your life. Even if you’re not sure what your life’s purpose is, you can be sure that you haven’t completed it yet if you’re still breathing. Ask yourself, “What can I do today to become a better person?” And then thank your higher power for another day to pursue that intention.

2. There’s always someone else who is worse off than you. No matter how achy your body is, there’s someone else whose health is in a more critical condition. There are people each day on their death beds who wish they could get up and live just one more day. Respect your opportunity to live that day. If you feel depressed about not having much money, remember that there are people who can’t even afford a warm place to sleep each night and who pick through trash to find food. Your ramen noodles would be a feast to those people. Each day will feel like a blessing if you cherish what you have, rather than wishing you had more.

Psychic Red ext. 9226 reminds us, “You can spend your energy struggling over all the things that aren’t right in your life, or you can increase your energy by understanding that you may not have everything you want, just the way you want it — and yet you probably have more than you need.”

3. Slow down. In our world of instant information and hyper-organization, we feel the need to constantly do things faster and get to places quicker. We eat lunch at our desks and multitask at the office, at home and in transit between the two. As absurd as it sounds, we have to remind ourselves to stop and breathe — deep, cleansing breaths. “Many of us hunger for oxygen but mistake it as a hunger for food,” writes Marc David in his book The Slow Down Diet. When you’re feeling irritable or drowsy, don’t reach for a snack or cup of coffee; stop what you’re doing and take a few deep breaths instead.

4. It’s okay to make mistakes. Along with our faster world come demands to be perfect. But despite the number of high-tech machines we use daily, we remain human. If you are paralyzed by the fear of imperfection, give yourself permission each day to err. And remember to allow other people the same. After the expectation for perfection is lifted, you will experience less stress.

5. Keep things in perspective. Although you want to be conscious of quality in your work and relationships, if you go overboard and obsess about small things that don’t matter in the overall picture, your life will be unbalanced. If your husband continues to decorate your living room floor with his dirty socks after you’ve asked him to pick them up, don’t make a big deal out of it. Just pick them up and remind yourself of all the wonderful things he does for you and which outweigh his little quirks. In the grand scheme of life, there are bigger problems in the world than how clothes find their way to the laundry basket.

Psychic Jacqueline ext. 9472 says, “Remember, don’t sweat the small stuff, the things that really don’t matter. Allow others to be their own person, walk their own path. I see too often where one partner tries to micromanage the other one.”
