100 Ways To A Better Day

Day 26

The hashtag “LetsMakeTodayBetterBy” is trending on twitter today. I tweeted out a couple of ideas on how to make today better, and then it occurred to me that this idea of making today better is really gratitude in action. A while ago, I practiced a gratitude exercise for 28 days from Rhonda Byrne’s The Magic. Gratitude has become a part of my thinking. According to Rhonda Byrne, “after 28 days you will have rewired your brain, and implanted gratitude in your subconscious mind, where it is automatically the first thing that comes to your mind in any situation.”

Yesterday, I searched for my 28 days of gratitude file, got busy and didn’t look at it. I also got my site artwork underway with Hana Shafi, who produced exactly what I wanted – you can see her artistry displayed in today’s feature image. Yesterday’s thoughts and inspired action have manifested as today’s post.

Here are 100 suggestions on how to make a better day. Try to pick a different one every day for 28 days, or if you’re feeling very ambitious, accept my 100 day challenge, and try one of my suggestions, or come up with your own every day for the next 100 days!
