It's A New Day #2

As is every day. Each day we all have the power to start again. Afresh. 

It doesn't matter how badly yesterday appeared to be. The bad times were exactly that. Yesterday. Leave them there. 

If there is something that needs to be done. Don't dodge it. Tackle it. 

Today is a new day. By ignoring it, in the long term it will just make it either seem worse, or actually make it worse. Ostrich is not the behaviour of the day. 

So here's an idea. Break it down. 

Is it something big? 

Break it into small bite-sized pieces, little bits that you won't mind doing. 

Set yourself a time frame to firstly write the list. 

Break that list into 30min jobs, 15 min jobs and 5 min tasks. 

Then to complete each task with the help of a handy kitchen timer (mine is a smiley face one!).

Seriously, it will feel much better to proactively tackle things in this way.

May your day Glitter & Sparkle
