“With the past, I have nothing to do; nor with the future. I live now.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Does your daily routine feel like a boring trap you want to break away from? Then this article is for you…

On a daily basis i.e. every day we wake up, eat, go to work, eat, sleep, and do it all over again the next day. We find a system that makes life run smoothly and that adds to our productivity. And it works – for a little while at least. But eventually we’re living a routine, ordinary, boring life. It’s the same stuff every day. How much fun can that be?! Before we know it, instead of being more motivated and inspired, the system traps us within an unchanging stale and not so productive rut. And believe me, its not a good place to be trapped in!

So, to prevent boredom, it’s important to shake things up every now and then.

Add some pizzazz into the day! Re-energize!

Of course, you can shake things up in a really big way if you want to…..but the little things work just as well to make life more meaningful. All it takes to put the pizzazz back into your routine is a little thinking out of the box. Below are five positive ways to get your juices flowing again and add some sparkling pizzazz back into your day.

9 Positive Ways to put the pizzazz back into your day

1. Cook up a NEW storm

“Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

People are always complaining that they don’t have enough time for cooking, let alone exploring new recipes. Cooking can become a form of creative expression rather than a chore. Don’t worry, even if you’re busy or not such a good cook, the act of cooking can get you out of your rut. Getting your hands on real food connects your spirit with real life. Cooking can inspire you and wake up your joy of being alive. You don’t have to be a Michelin chef or do anything fancy. For example try a tomato soup instead of a mushroom soup. Stepping out of your routine and trying new ways of cooking things helps you wake up your taste buds and your life.

2. Get Excited

“A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.” ~ John Muir

Excitement is something we set forth as a possibility, actively and silently. Then we look for ways to making it happen in every moment. Actively and silently DECIDE to re-ignite your excitement for life. I decide everyday to GET Excited and live my life to its fullest potential. On any day, however my day is going, my level of excitement never ceases. Thats the one thing all those who know me notice first about me….’She is so bubbly and chipper always!” My chipperness/excitement has been the reason for many funny antics which my little one and I laugh at all day. I can be a clown too 😉 ooppss I’m kind of one all too often 🙂

Excitement is infectious too! I’ve often noticed, my level of excitement has been the reason for many others getting up jumping all around with me 🙂 Yes, I do jump for joy way too much…psst I even have that skip in my step!!

3. Get your hands dirty in the Garden

“Anything which grows is always more beautiful to look at than anything which is built.”–Lin Yu Tang

Plant flowers or vegetables. Get those beautiful hands dirty and active in a soul nurturing task. Oh my! Why gardening of all things? Because the act of gardening energizes us, filling us with joy and hope. It gets us in nature and connected with life and noticing the constantly changing weather. When you tend a garden, it brings peace and solitude. Not to mention birds, butterflies, and the wind…oh the wind! Tending a garden may well be one of the best antidotes to a busy, routine life. My window requires a few new pots too….tomorrow is planting new pots day for me too 🙂

4. Just Consciously Breathe

“Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Very simply breathing consciously has innumerable benefits. Your breath has the ability to lift your spirit and clear your mind of negative thoughts almost instantly. Deep breathing get the energy moving within you. And truly, breathing is the conscious choice you make to be alive, to be you. But you need to decide to just breathe consciously throughout the day. When you take deep breaths several times each hour those breaths will become deep, fulfilling, happy breaths, that invigorate your body and rid your body of accumulated heaviness.
