Mornings with TopicsWithPassion

Morning can be difficult for many reasons: lack of sleep, boring routine, too many responsibilities, too many worries, etc. Unfortunately, when we wake up with a negative outlook, everything seems darker and it makes it harder to find happiness and break the cycle.

Here are 4 questions that can help break the negative cycle:

  1. What wakes you up in the morning? My husband smiles and kisses. Yes, I am that lucky!
  2. What’s one thing I can do to make the day better? As you¬†probably already know, I struggle with depression and anxiety. One thing that helps me alleviate the heaviness of obligation and worry is that I get up from bed every day telling myself that I can do this. That I’m strong enough to achieve anything life throws at me.
  3. What are you looking forward to today?¬†This answer changes every day. To be honest, some days are more difficult than others. Some days are just about proving to myself that I can survive. Today, I do have something I’m looking forward to filling out the invitations for my child’s birthday. I found this cute invitation that you can put on the front of the refrigerator as a reminder.
  4. What am I grateful for this morning? I am grateful for the medical team that take my chronic illnesses seriously and are trying to help me. I am grateful for a husband who is understanding, patient and supportive. I’m grateful that the school will evaluate my daughter for dyslexia free of charge. Most self-help gurus say that you should write or name 5 to 10 things you are grateful for every day. I say start with one, sometimes it’s all it takes to start a small spark of happiness deep inside of us.
