I know we are all fabulous but there are times we get too busy or too tired and we forget how wonderful and extraordinary we are! Here’s a few things to help remind us of what we can do to make 2015 (and beyond) fabulous.

 

  • Take yourself less seriously. If you can’t or don’t laugh at yourself, I can guarantee you that everyone else will be laughing behind your back.
  • Thank the thankless. Janitors, maintenance stiff, customer support people and so forth have tough jobs. Having someone thank them is huge.
  • Worry less what others think. Because you can’t read minds, you have no idea what people are really thinking about you.
  • Believe the best is yet to come. Trust with all your heart that the world has wonderful things in store for you.

  • Stop comparing yourself to others. You have no idea where someone else’s journey might them, so drawing comparisons is a complete waste of time.
  • Take a long bath. When you’re in the tub, you can’t use your electronics so that’s a perfect haven where work pressures simply can’t reach you.
  • Take joy in small victories. Don’t wait for the big wins to celebrate. Celebrate the intermediate milestones that you hit along the way.
  • Take more walks outside. When things get intense at the office, a breath of fresh air and a stretch of your legs can give you valuable perspective.

  • Shut off “background” TV. The point of broadcast television is to make you want more stuff. Why program yourself to be a mindless consumer?
  • Sleep more soundly. An hour bed shut down your computer and your phone. When you wake wait until you’re ready for work to read your emails.
  • Smile more frequently. This tells your brain to be more happy and, because happiness is contagious, makes other people smile.
  • Spend 10 seconds on gratitude. Spend at least 10 seconds, right now, to be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life.

  • Remember that this too will pass. The nature of the physical universe is change and nothing remains the same.
  • Schedule time to concentrate. Set aside a time each day to when you won’t be interrupted to work on projects that require sustained concentration.
  • Show more respect. Respect is the foundation for a strong business relationships Respect creates respect and thus the relationship grows.
  • Shrug things off more often. In the grand scheme of things, the stuff that bothers you every day probably isn’t all that important.
  • Shun needless gossip. Before telling (or listening to) personal stories about coworkers ask yourself 1) Is it true? 2) Is it kind? 3) Is it necessary?

  • Realign your plans regularly. You’ll make better decisions if you know how the actions you’re taking will help you achieve your long-term plans and goals.
  • Rebalance your workload. If you must do A,B,C and D, and there’s only time to do three of the four, delegate or ignore the task that you can’t accomplish.
  • Record good memories. When you experience a special moment, capture it on your phone or your journal. Or both.
  • Refuse to be “stressed”. Rather than use the word “stress” when you’re busy or under pressure, use words that will motivate you like “excited” or “energized.”
  • Relax for 5 minutes. No matter how much pressure you feel at work, you’ll get more done if you set work aside five minutes every hour.

  • Maintain your integrity. You’ll never be happy at work if you let other people push you into places that violate your personal integrity.
  • Make weekends a haven. While it’s sometimes necessary to do some work when you’re technically not at work, you need time to recharge your batteries.
  • Meditate more often. Numerous scientific studies reveal that prayer and meditation changes your physiological state for the better.
  • Never over-commit yourself. Be enthusiastic and go the “extra mile,” but avoid making promises that you can’t reasonably keep.
  • Read more that’s inspiring. Fill your quiet moments with music, books, and TED talks that are uplifting and help you aspire to be your best.

  • Help someone less fortunate. Giving to others is the best way to create a sense of abundance in your own life.
  • Laugh more often. Numerous studies show that laughter doesn’t just make you happier, it also make you healthier by relieving stress.
  • Let go of your results. Once you’ve taken action and there’s nothing else you can do, forget about the result and focus on the job at hand
  • Limit exposure to media violence. Intensely violent and suspenseful movies and video games can force your body into “fight or flight.” Don’t overdo them.
  • Lose more arguments. Some battles aren’t worth fighting, and many people are easier to handle when they think they’ve won.
