You can think of it as your brain giving you a wake up call :)

If you want to open your eyes to living your very best life, keep these 7 tips in mind when starting your day each morning... then use the 6 amazing pre-made Mind Movies I'm giving you below!
Tip 1: Smile!
It's a brand-new day and having a positive attitude is a great way to set your tone for everything that's to come - be thankful to be alive :)
You know the saying, ‘Fake it till you make it’? Well, this same principle applies here! Even if you don’t really feel like it, put a smile on your face and you’ll automatically feel a relief of stress.
According to Scientific American, it’s been proven that our facial expressions can influence our feelings. So by smiling, you are actually increasing your own happiness! And a sure way to live your best life is by being happy about your life… so smile!
Tip 2: Stretch & Exercise
Stretching and exercising are good for your body, mind and spirit. It will really get the blood pumping and help you get your day started on the right foot!
And sometimes, living the best life you can means creating your best self. Whatever you have to do to be your best self is absolutely worth it because you’ll raise your self-esteem and increase your feelings of self-worth. So don’t think of exercise as a chore! Choose from a variety of exercises that are actually FUN! This can include yoga, dancing, biking, etc.
Tip 3: Meditate & Visualize
Open your mind and heart to who you are and who you want to be today. Feel peaceful and calm, and visualize creating your future.
As you are visualizing living your best life and living life to the fullest, it’s important to also FEEL the emotions that come with this vision. FEEL who you want to be, where you want to be, and what you are doing. By envisioning yourself in this particular place, you are telling your mind that this is your reality.
Tip 4: Drink Water with Lemon
I'm sure you know how important it is to drink lots of water throughout the day, but next time you pour yourself a glass, try adding some lemon. There are all sorts of benefits - the vitamin C helps your immune system, it's great for your skin, detoxifies the liver, and promotes overall good health (just to name a few)!
Tip 5: Eat a Balanced Breakfast
Many people say it's the most important meal of the day! Make sure you kick start the day with nutritious food that will get your metabolism going and stave off hunger.
Tip 6: Interact With the World & People Around You
Go for a walk, sit and read a book at a coffee shop, go to the park and relax, or strike up a conversation with a friend, or even a stranger. Put a smile on someone else's face :)
One of my favorite sayings to live by is: “Smile at strangers and you just might change a life.” As said by the famous Steve Maraboli.
Tip 7: Do Something Out of the Ordinary
Pair together a different outfit from clothing pieces you already own, take a different route to work, try an exotic food, or eat at a new restaurant for lunch.
