How To Start Off Your Day With Simplicity (Emunah La-Paz Defines You)

Starting Your Day Off With Simplicity Can Be Easier Said Than Done

The definition of Simplicity- Is the state or quality of being simple.

Simple minded can be viewed in a negative light, or in a positive manner. I choose to perceive simplicity in a positive way. I believe that most of us take on a challenge before evaluating the situation in a clear light, which can cause stress.

I have provided some simple techniques that have helped me start of the day positively, and by the end of the day I am not weighed down with worry or fatigue.

Hopefully these suggestions will help you start off your day with ease.

Try To Start Off Your Day As Early As Possible

The early bird gets the worm, is an expression that richly applies to starting off your day with simplicity. The sooner you rise to fuel your energy the more time you have to re-charge your batteries for the day.

Many women and some men wake up just in time to get dress make coffee and head out for work. This daily ritual leaves little time to invest in yourself. If your not careful, your day could end up like the video below.

How To Avoid Living A Mundane Lifestyle

A mundane lifestyle happens when someone else dictates your path in life. Of course you have to take this path in order to make a living, for yourself and your family. A mundane lifestyle could make you resent you choices in life, making you feel stuck and even depressed.

A Simplicity Drink

1. Try to get up early enough to comfort yourself, and prepare yourself a relaxing drink.

Chai Tea: Is my favorite simplicity drink of choice. It regulates your system while providing a natural boost of energy. Chai is tea, black tea, but tea steeped in milk, flavored with spices and sweetened with sugar or honey.

Green Tea: Is my grandmother's favorite simplicity drink. "It's the healthiest thing I can think of to drink," says Christopher Ochner, PhD. He's a research scientist in nutrition at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital. "Green tea is beyond a super food."

EnerGi Blend Healthy Coffee is a high quality Gourmet coffee with the perfect kind of mix of Reishi and Ginseng extracts.

Avoid These Stressful so- called "Morning Drinks"

Soda

Coffee packed with sugar

Beer

Who in their right mind would drink beer in the morning? You'd be surprised. Soda, and coffee packed with sugar will make you crash mid-way in your day, causing you to feel sluggish and drained.


2. Find Your Favorite Place To Relax

Don't Take Nature For Granted.

We all should have that cozy spot in our homes in which we can kick back and relax. My favorite spot is near the window looking out into the scenic backyard covered in palm trees, as I watch the birds without worry chirp in harmony.

It may sound silly, however there was a time when all I could see was dust for miles and all I could hear was the sound of irritated horns beeping their way through traffic. This was not at all a comforting sound.

Don't take nature for granted. If you observe your surroundings closely enough you'll be able to discover something new each day. And this my friend is a blessing.

3. Curl Up With A Good Devotional

Read Positive Affirmations to Help You Deal With A Negative World

Some people would describe devotional books as religious, or spiritual, however a good devotional book should strengthen you, and prepare you mentally for the entire day. Think of a devotional as a fuel for your engine. Some people take better care of their cars than their own bodies.

It is common for us to want to turn on the t.v., first thing in the morning and fill up on gossip or news that we can't control. The honest truth is that sometimes we have to prepare out mind to withstand the news. Try to avoid turning on the t.v. or picking up the newspaper first thing in the morning. Use this time to meditate on positive things. Use this time to fill up on words of affirmation.

My favorite devotional at this time is by Sara Young. Joyce Meyersalso has great devotionals, as well as Joel Olsteen.

Pick the devotional that is right for you! The right kind of book will speak to you in a way that you can merge with. A daily devotional should give you a lift and instill comfort.

Now that you have re-charged your batteries it is time to face the world. Starting your day off with simplicity is worth fighting for. The results will lead to low blood pressure, and serenity.
