What goes through your mind when you wake up in the morning? Are you grateful? Excited? Inspired?


I now start my day off, while laying in bed, with a smile. A program I viewed on the Discovery Channel last year showed that even just smiling can create the feeling of happiness, as your brain chemicals are influenced by your muscles. Then think of at least 5 things you are grateful for. If you are in bed with your life partner, a cuddle will release oxytocin and create more of a bond. Stretching, making a list of 5 things I want to accomplish today and mild exercise really set the tone for a lovely day in body, mind and spirit. I'm in recovery so I also as God to be with me through my day.
