The Daily Cup – Here Comes The Sun

……………………………………………………..

Remember a time as a child when you played outside and actually noticed that it was sunny and that the sun somehow made your life itself radiant in that moment. Try to picture the details of that moment. Were you with friends? What toy were you playing with? Where were you? What were the most noticeable features of your surroundings? A tree? A river? Did you have a favorite pet at your side? What were you wearing? What time of day was it? You might get a bit nostalgic, but what you will get most is a sense that life has many ways of being kind to you.

The Daily Cup – Your Corner

……………………………………………………..

Today, identify a corner of your home where you enjoy being most. If it is not already set up with a place to sit, rearrange it with a comfortable chair and small side table. Plan on spending 5 minutes there in silence at some point every day, perhaps with your tea or coffee. Plan this so that it fits in your schedule and you can make it a daily ritual. Ritual brings a sense of security and stability. We make a lot of decisions every week. Starting from a sense of stability can help us face the more difficult ones with greater ease.

The Daily Cup – Laugh Out Loud

……………………………………………………..

Plan on concluding the day with laughter. You could stop by a bookstore on your way home from work and buy a small joke book, then read a few pages before going to bed. Or spend a few moments on You Tube, watching bloopers from your favorite shows, movies or from the news. Watch an episode of The Golden Girls, Seinfeld or Friends or clips from The Carol Burnett Show. These classics, filmed before a live audience, are sure to give you a hearty dose of humor and to help you relax from the small and big burdens of the day.
