    How do you start your day in a positive way?

    I start my day in a positive way by saying a little prayer to say thanks to God for I am still alive and be grateful for everything that I have like my good family and friends. I will have a shower or a wash first then have a coffee and anything that I fancy for breakfast. Then I go on to do any thing that needs doing. But before that I will go to my garden at the back of our house to water my vegetables and flowers. Then I will go to work or If I am off, I will decide what to do with my free time.

      Very nice start for the day. I work nights so in reverse I start with taking care of me so I may take care the rest of the day. My personal care and supper, a cup of coffee for the road and off to work. I make a list of things to accomplish that day.

    I will usually say a quick prayer to God so that the rest of the day runs smoothly. I don't exactly make a list for myself, because things usually don't turn out the way it is planned. But I try to meditate every morning so that I am able to calmly handle the stresses during the day.

      I work nights and it can be slow time for the first six hours, not always. I get alot of praying done then.

    I'm 67 and retired now, so I have time to function more deliberately. I awake, grateful that I have a pulse, and savor my morning coffee. I choose a project that'll take 1-2 hours and carry it completion. I communicate with a friend, either by card, letter, e-mail or phone call. The dogs drag me around one of their favorite walking trails. If there are any minor maintenance issues to address, I attend to that (I leave major issues to people who can be trusted with power tools). There is ALWAYs something to research or study; if not, I set time aside for recreational reading. I often try to have dinner prepared for my wife when she returns from work, but most of what I cook is toxic waste. Much of my work in the past required meeting deadlines or being in several places at once, so the concept of "Hurry" is repugnant to meā€¦and I don't do anything in a hurry. At day's end, I appreciate what's been done, what progress or decisions have been made, what plans have been initiated, or what a gift the day has been. There's time to plan road trips, consider vacations that may or may not be taken, to toss ideas and dreams back and forth, and the next day is, in part, a product of the day that preceded it.

    Going to the gym, working out and then running 2 miles. After that, half-mil of Xanax and a large cup of black coffee with a parfait or whatever I feel like eating. I can take on anything after that.

    I try to say out loud three reasons why I am grateful for my life.

    I start my day with about half an hour of yoga practice.

      I have been thinking about starting yoga and want to start before retirement. I want it to be part of my daily ritual. Thank you for getting me thinking in a positive direction for self improvement.
