"Always end the day with a positive thought."
The end of the day is a great time to have a nightly routine. My nightly routine consists of doing push-ups, evaluating my goals, and journaling. I’m a big fan of positive affirmations. Matter of fact, I used to recite my core principles before bed, and maybe I should get back on that also. Positivity paints everything you did in a positive light and gives you hope that the next day will be great as well.
It reminds me of one of the lessons taught by Admiral William McRaven in his commencement speech at the University of Texas. McRaven stated,"everyday we should make our bed because no matter what happens, we will come back to a made bed, which gives us optimism that the next day will be better". Similarly, positivity at night can have the same effect, both, when reflecting on how we spent the current day and when we are thinking about how we are going to spend the next day.
So, always end the day with a positive thought. Fortunately, positivity can come in a number of ways. For example, some people pray and some people journal. whichever method works best for you. Throw a little gratitude in at the end of your day and see how much your life improves.
