Yesterday March 16th was Everything you Do is Right Day. Earlier this week I brought you a post about how Everything you Think is Wrong, within that post I talked about how sometimes we just need to write everything down in a list in order to make it all right, and sometimes that means multiple types of lists as well. Today I want to talk about how to have a day where everything you do is right.
Start your day off with a healthy choice:
When you start your day with a healthy choice it leads to more healthy choices. For example maybe you don’t eat breakfast in the morning, or you eat a very unhealthy breakfast most mornings. By choosing a healthy breakfast of whole wheat toast, with a hard boiled egg and glass of juice you have already set yourself up for healthy eating choices throughout the day. Maybe breakfast isn’t really something you have an issue with, perhaps you just want to be more active during the day. Start your morning off with a 10 minute morning stretch routine, or a 15 minute yoga, or 30 minute full body work out. This little Smart and Healthy Choice will have you feeling more motivated throughout the rest of your day to make more smart and healthy choices.
Take time to relax:
Some of us are pretty healthy eaters, we don’t have too much issue with being active, but we carry a lot of stress around. We are worried about our jobs, we are worried about finances etc. etc. etc. The list goes on an on for the number of things we as humans can stress over.
Last week my husband and I took a day for ourselves. We left the baby with a babysitter for four hours, and we went and got a couples massage and had lunch. It was amazing. After the massage I was so relaxed and feeling so good about my body that I made healthy eating choices at the restaurant. That massage relaxed me enough so that the next day I continued to make healthy eating choices and even managed to get a lot of work done around the house. Since getting the massage, I have actually woken up every morning and gotten dressed instead of hanging out in what I had slept in the night before.
Make a list and stick to it:
I mentioned in my Everything You Think is Wrong Post that by making lists you are able to free up your mind to focus on the tasks you have at hand. When you are overwhelmed and wondering what you should do first, the best thing is to write everything you need to do down. Then prioritize it. Finally Single Task it. Focus on one thing at a time, don’t move to the next thing until the first item on your list is done.

Get Out of your head:
I know I mentioned relaxing before, but this is important. It goes beyond just relaxing. You don’t necessarily have to go spend $50 or $100 on a massage, instead what you can do is take some you time.
If all you have is ten minutes use that time to meditate, relax and clear your mind of all intrusive thoughts. If you have more time you could go for a hike allow your stress to disappear as you instead take in the beautiful nature trails that exist around you. If you are stuck indoors spend 15-30 minutes doing a yoga routine off YouTube.
Read a good book, and visit a new world.
These are just a few things that help me to have a day where everything I do is right. What are some things that allow you to have a perfect day? Let me know in the comments.
