  1. Wake up and thank God for waking you up to face the opportunities of another beautiful day. You are alive. It’s a new day and it’s filled with endless opportunities.
  2. Practice 5 minutes of meditation. Close your eyes and take deep inhalations and exhalations. Try to quiet your mind and focus on your breath.
  3. Start a gratitude journal and write down 10 things you are thankful for daily. This will really allow you to focus on the (sometimes) small things we often take for granted.
  4. Tell someone close to you that you love them and that you are thankful they have chosen to share their lives with you. Give your children a cuddle, call a friend to say thank you for always being there. Smile at a stranger. Appreciate the people that shape your life, however big or small a part they play in your life.
  5. Give yourself a new daily affirmation. A few of our favourites: ‘Everything always works out for me’, ‘I am enough’, ‘God is faithful to His word’, ‘My soulmate is around the corner waiting for me’.
  6. Be mindful of your thoughts. When you find yourself drifting into a negative mind space, stop and take a moment. Ask yourself what are the positives that can come out of that very thought.
  7. Be mindful of your words. Set a goal to talk positively. Try not to gossip or speak negatively about yourself or other people. 
  8. Watch or listen or read inspiring material. At the moment the team at Veemance are listening to the Joel Osteen Podcast - and it’s free on Spotify.
  9. Live in the now. The past has gone and the future is tomorrow so focus on living in the moment.
  10. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You are wonderfully and perfectly made in the image of God and no matter what, He loves you. How good is that?

Stay safe and blessed Australia ❤️
