One today is worth two tomorrows.
-Benjamin Franklin

Yesterday is history and tomorrow is merely a figment of your imagination.  So if you think about it, today is the only day you’re truly alive.  Here’s how to make it a good one:

Get started a few minutes early.

  • Work on something that’s meaningful to you.
  • Complete an important piece of unfinished business.
  • Spend time with positive, friendly people.
  • Do something nice for someone else.
  • Be present. Focus on where you are, what you’re doing and who you’re with right now.
  • Do one thing at a time.  (Read Getting Things Done <http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0142000280?ie=UTF8&tag=marandang-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0142000280> .)
  • Listen to your self-talk.  When you hear negative thoughts, think about the positive side of things.
  • Smile, even when there’s no pressing reason to do so.
  • Unplug.  Entertain yourself with real-world experiences.
  • Go somewhere new.  See something new.  Meet someone new.
  • Do something that makes you laugh.
  • Challenge your mind.  Learn a new skill <http://www.marcandangel.com/2008/06/02/50-things-everyone-should-know-how-to-do/> .
  • Challenge your body.  Exercise for 30 minutes.  (Read The 4-Hour Body <http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/030746363X?ie=UTF8&tag=marandang-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=030746363X> .)
  • Let someone help you.
  • Clear a little clutter by getting rid of something you don’t need.
  • Be honest with yourself and those around you.
  • Don’t compare yourself to others.  Instead, let them inspire you.
  • Spend a few minutes alone in silence, just thinking.
  • Focus on solutions.
  • Keep an open mind to new ideas and information.
  • Handle important two-minute tasks immediately.
  • Stay out of other people’s drama.  And don’t needlessly create your own.
  • Say, “Please,” “Thank you,” “I’m sorry” and “I love you,” when you should.
  • Don’t try to please everyone.  Just do what you know is right.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Savor the natural joy of simple pleasures <http://whatmoneycannotbuy.com/> .
  • Notice what’s right with the world.
  • Focus on all the things you already have, think about them and appreciate them.
  • Get to sleep a little earlier tonight so you’re well rested tomorrow.
    And remember, a smile is the most beautiful curve on the human body.  So go now and strut your stuff.   Photo by: Joisey Showaa <> <https://feedads.g.doubleclick.net/~a/ClejNb_giZ39UBkzoLAegJfE0uA/jNHz5Vqo0_kZMWlKr_B8zEAUtk8/0/pa>  <https://feedads.g.doubleclick.net/~a/ClejNb_giZ39UBkzoLAegJfE0uA/jNHz5Vqo0_kZMWlKr_B8zEAUtk8/1/pa>
