Make your day AWESOME!

coffee2Real Simple put together a list of five easy tips to make your day awesome. And some of them might surprise you . . .

1.  Eat the same breakfast every morning.  The idea is that your morning is less stressful if your first meal is already decided.  And you’re supposed to make it healthy, like oatmeal or an omelet.  Last minute choices tend to be stuff like donuts.
2.  Savor your morning coffee.  It may sound crazy to slow down when you’ve got things to do, but experts claim that you should try to ENJOY what you’re drinking, instead of mindlessly gulping it down.
3.  Write out an “ignore” list.  This is pretty much the opposite of a “To Do” list.  Make a list of all the non-essential stuff that you can ignore . . . like emails that you don’t need to answer, vacuuming, and anything else that you can postpone.
4.  Take some time to zone out.  You’re supposed to get to a place where you’re not thinking about anything.  But don’t make it that complicated.  Just let yourself listen to music, play a game, or watch TV, guilt-free.
5.  When you ask “how are you?”, actually listen to the answer.  It’s a throw-away question, and we don’t really pay attention to what people say in response.  But try to.  It’s supposed to lift your spirits, and help you connect.
