Every day is different…it’s own venture. Today, the best part of my day was a nice compliment from someone saying I looked “healthy & glowing”. Oh the little things in life that put a smile on my face.
In general, the best part of my day boils down to…
talking with great people
I call my mom & dad regularly & make a point of chatting regularly with friends. it’s the people that care about me most that put the biggest smile on my face & create positive energy in my life (usually…though not always the case).
exercising my mind
On days when I solve big problems (or even smaller ones), conquering the problem is a major highlight. It feels so satisfactory to figure out how to combat an obstacle. Creating also exercises my mind & is something I enjoy about my day. Whether it’s writing, drawing, cooking…it makes me happy!
exercising my body
I wouldn’t be able to get up at 5:30 am to go to the gym if I didn’t love it. I love waking up before the sun to push my perceived physical limitations. This morning I woke up at 5:30 am, went to a 6 am spinning class, followed by a 7:30 am crossfit workout where I dead lifted 85 pounds 60 times, did 60 burpee bar jumps, ran a 400, did 100 squats, & did 25 front squats with up to 65 pounds. Challenging?! Of course! And also amazing & energizing! It’s the best way to start my morning.
Let’s face it…I love food. I cook it, take pictures of it, eat it, write about it. A great, healthy, delicious meal is a memorable part of any day! Seriously, how can a dish like this not make my day?!
Trying something new. Encountering a new idea, new place, new person, or other spontaneous explorations. Coming across a bunch of young surfers in New Jersey last week, on my walk on the beach after a 3 mile run, was a fabulous encounter that made my day! Sometimes it’s those little moments that really add color & excitement to a day.
What is the best part of your day?!
