Of course you would!
Well all it takes is one change in your behaviour. Your attitude to getting up in the morning.
If you get up in the morning because you feel you have to, you’re going to spend the day one step behind – never quite getting everything done and feeling totally overwhelmed.
If you get up in the morning because you want to, you can seize control and go through the day on your terms, striding in to each task and powering through your day!
“But I have to get up in the morning! I have have to go to work!” You say
Well I have news for you. No one is forcing you to go work. Your boss can’t make you. Your family and friends can’t make you. Sure, there are a lot of reasons you may need to go to work, but you don’t have to. You could just keep sleeping!
But you don’t, you want to get paid and be able to provide for yourself or your family. People convince themselves they have to go to work but they don’t, they get to go to work. They are lucky enough to have a job and get paid! So when you wake up for work, go because you want to. Because you do want to, really, you don’t have to smile your way through the day enjoying every minute of it. But you have chosen to be there because you want to be there.
You want to continue working so you should get up in the morning telling yourself that. Literally tell yourself you want to go to work and tell yourself why your grateful for you job. Things could always be a lot worse so count yourself lucky and get out of bed!
Having this attitude means you get to be in control. You get to decide what’s happening and be in control of your stress. One of the main causes of stress is a change in circumstance. So by taking the drivers seat you’re battling each one like the cool collected person you are.
This is a fantastic list from http://www.momentsaday.com/ which is a 10 point list of all the things to be thankful for as a parent.
I love this. A big list of reasons having things to do is great not terrible.
If you begin the day on someone else’s terms you’re always going to be one step behind. So in doing it for you, you will find yourself less lethargic and even find yourself getting excited for whatever comes next! If you do it on your terms you’re in the lead, you’re not playing catch up with everything.
