You know that old question “did you wake up on the wrong side of bed this morning?’ A question used to ask someone why they are in such a bad mood can actually carry with it a valuable way of looking at life.
Let’s call waking up on ’the wrong side of bed’; waking up in a negative mindset. There are a lot of things that contribute to the mindset that we adopt in the first moments that we wake up. If we didn’t sleep well, if we were woken frequently throughout the night, and we didn’t get sufficient and restful sleep then we may wake up with diminished energy and a negative mindset.
You’ve noticed, I’m sure, that when you wake up in this way things don’t tend to get any better until we consciously choose to shift our mindset or shift the vibration of our energy!
If we continue on, in the ‘wrong side of the bed’ mindset, we will find that we begin to experience more and more ‘wrong side of the bed’ experiences throughout our day. Maybe you stub your toe on the way to the bathroom, experience a lot of traffic and run late on the way to work, spill mustard on your shirt during your lunch break.
But if we notice that we are in that negative mindset before we leave the house and we take the time to shift our mindset, you will observe that you can take control on your outlook back and set yourself up for a great day, despite the fact that you ‘woke up on the wrong side of bed’.
