21 Ways To Have Your Best Day Ever!

27 Nov

Ron Hulnick, Dean of the University of Santa Monica is often heard to say, “Have your best day ever.” Here are some suggestions for doing that.

1.  Remember life is short. What would you do if this were your last day to live? Can you do any of these things?

2.  You may not be able to solve any of the world’s problems, but you can say a prayer or send good energy for everyone involved in them.

3.  What are you grateful for today, even if it is just air to breathe, it can change your outlook?

4.  Who can you tell that you love them?

5.  Who can you give a smile too? Or even a smile in the eyes?

6.  Ask to be filled with grace, especially if you are challenged.

7.  See what your inner child would like to do?

8.  Give hugs or at least a handshake with an arm pat.

9.  If you were your favorite person, what would you give yourself as a gift? Do it, even if it is a virtual gift.

10. Look in the mirror until you find something you love about yourself.

11. Dress to look your very best today.

12. Tell at least three people, one specific thing you appreciate about them.

13. Tell yourself at least three things you appreciate about yourself.

14. Do something in secret that helps the world. If anyone finds out that you did it, it doesn’t count. It can be very small.

15. Eat a vegetable.

16. Drink a big bottle of water,

17. Pass something on that you no longer use.

18. Ask someone how they are and listen for at least two minutes before you speak.

19. Clear clutter for 5 minutes.

20. Stretch like you mean it.

21. Do something that you love to do and haven’t done in a long time. It can be virtual.

Do you have any ideas to add to this list? Did you have your best day ever?
