I woke up the other morning in a bad mood. I wondered if I’d had a nightmare. Nope, I couldn’t recall any. I wasn’t hungover. I hadn’t even checked my social media yet, so I hadn’t activated any angsty comparison triggers. I just opened my eyes that morning, and had a sense of foreboding. I simply felt like life wasn’t great, for no obvious reason at all.
Do you ever feel that way? Some people think of this as the yin and yang of life, the natural ups and downs of being human. But left unaddressed, it can ruin your day (or worse).
Taken from Tiny Buddha’s Gratitude Journal by Lori Deschene, here are some prompts to help you get out of a funk and have a “happier, brighter life.”
Ask yourself these questions:
1. What’s the best thing that’s happened to me so far today, and what did I most appreciate about it?
Big or small… go! So far this morning I’ve appreciated the bulletproof coffee my husband made me and the business I’ve built, which allows me to work from my bed. Bliss!
