What Are You Focusing On?

rosesWhat are you focusing on? In today’s world it is easy to get caught up in the negative things that are happening around us. Watch any news channel and you’ll hear a smorgasbord of stories about murder, war, famine, and everything in between. Television shows are often violent, and can leave you sad, anxious, and more worried about the current problems you’re experiencing.

I read an article this morning that features tips about focusing on more positive things. Two of these tips really stood out and I’d like to share those with you.

Reading positive and inspiring books not only teach you something new, but also requires that you sit and focus while you are reading. What a win-win situation!

Waking up early allows you to prepare for your day without feeling rushed. You have extra time to pray, meditate, or read something inspirational. It may be hard to get in the habit of waking up early, but it is well worth it, and as an added bonus you get a head start on the rest of the world.

What are you focusing on? By following these tips, you’ll not only improve your mood, but you’ll also be more energetic and ready to face the day.
