A New Normal Workshop
Each morning as we put our feet on the floor we have a day full of opportunites ahead of us. Make them count!
Here is a list of ways that you can make the best of our life! Enjoy
Pray. It does a body good!
Go to bed on time. Get enough rest.
Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
Say ‘No’ to projects that won't fit into your time schedule or that will take away from your family.
Do something nice for someone else and don’t tell anyone.
Delegate tasks to capable others.
Simplify and unclutter your life.
Less is more. Lighten your home, it feels wonderful!
Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
Take time to journal, learn about yourself and your journey.
Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.
Take one day at a time. Not that two is an option, but why not let tomorrow worry about itself.
Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety. If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.
Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line or for appointments.
Eat right. Check with your Doctor and take vitamins.
Get organized so everything has its place. It takes time but worth the peace of mind in the end.
Listen to a teaching CD or podcast while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
Write down thoughts and inspirations.
Every day, find time to be alone.
Write and mail a letter of encouragement to a friend.
Having problems? Talk to God on the spot, why wait until it builds and builds.
Make friends with Godly people that encourage and keep you accountable.
Keep a folder of favourite scriptures on hand.
Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good "Thank you Jesus."
Laugh some more!
Take your work seriously, be an example to those around you.
Be responsible. Take ownership for the choices that you make.
Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
Sit on your ego.
Talk less; listen more. You have 1 mouth and 2 ears for a reason!
Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. "If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)
