Absolutely loving your perspective here. I think that these lessons, though feeling unattainable at times, make a HUGE difference in day-to-day life. Especially the energy one - bad energy is something that really weighs us down and can affect us all day (and week! and month!)

I really love your blog - and thoughts here! Great.

When my day's not going that great, I just focus on the moments. The irony is that when I take care of the moments, the day takes care of itself.

I agree with Beth, if you can focus on these things day in and day out - they can have a huge positive effect on your life!

Another great post! Your site is very inspirational and awesome.


Beth - Thank you for the comment and the compliment! :) I'm so glad you liked the post and I really do believe that following these 7 strategies can help to transform any day into a good day.

J.D. - Focusing on the moments and staying present is one of the best ways to deal with a bad day. It's so true that when you focus on the moment the day manages to take care of itself.

Mike - Thank you! I'm so glad you liked the post and could agree with Beth's comment. I really think these strategies can help people make the most of every day!

Love all your love posts! I'm determined to love my days. When my day isn't going so well, I take a moment to be still. It has amazing healing effects.

Oh dear. This is an excellent post! I loved it, and I am adoring your month of love. It's just... Well, so good.
Also, I was wondering if perhaps you could write something about health? You know, develop number 2 on this list? I think that would be very interesting.

Belinda - Thanks so much! It means a lot to me to hear that! I agree that taking a moment to just be instead of running around in a panic can really help turn a bad day around.

Greta - I'm so happy to hear that you're loving the month of love! It's hard to be believe that it's nearly over. Only 2 posts to go! I think #2 is a really important one and that's something I should definitely write a post about. Thanks for the suggestion.

I love the idea of giving each day the chance to be great. Like you said, not every day is a great day. In fact, I'm grateful for that because how would we know what a great day was if we didn't have the bad days as a comparison!

We say it is One Day at a Time--and this day is all that I have. So I want to make the most of it. Even the "bad" days are ones that aren't wasted. I just learn something in a different way from them.

Another nice post Dani. I like how you incorporated steps 1 through 7 into a definition of loving each day. We have to remember that even when we are struggling sometimes or when things are not going are way, we are still lucky to be here and have a chance to make a difference in our lives and in other people's lives as well.

Sami - Me too! It's not always easy because some days can be really tough, but every day deserves a chance. We definitely need to have the bad days to make the great ones great!

Syd - One day at a time is definitely a great motto. We definitely have to make the most of our days because we don't ever know how many days we have left (sounds negative but it really reminds us to focus on the positive). When faced with a bad day, we could even think of it as one "moment" at a time.

Hulbert - Thank you! No matter how bad we have it (and some days we have it pretty bad), we're still lucky to be alive and to be given an opportunity to make the most of every day. Thanks for the comment!

I really love this post. I love your blog period!

My problem is I wake up everyday loving life, loving myself, feeling great. Then by the time I get home and ready for bed, I'm just worn out and so sad.

Much love and happiness to you, dearling. <3

such a beautiful post. thank you for writing it. I'm loving your site more and more every day ! :] (and I've linked you too, to spread the positivity & love <3)

Loving this. A truly complete list.

Hi Dani, this was great! I liked this sentence a whole lot :-)

"I think it's perfectly okay to realize that not every day will be great -- or even good -- but I don't think it's okay not to at least give every day a chance."


With a little mindful attention, we can create the day we want to have. It might not always turn out the way we want, but it beats having each day be a crap shoot!

It seems we have much work to do, before we wake up! :)

Melissa - Thank you! :) I'm so happy to hear that you love the blog and the post! I know what you mean about waking up with a good attitude and then being worn out by the end of the day. That happens a lot to me too. One strategy for avoiding that is to do some of the strategies above at night instead of in the morning. Writing in a gratitude journal before you go to bed, exercising post-work, or following any of the other strategies at night should probably make those end-of-day blues go away.

Sui - Thank you so much for linking to the site and spreading the positivity. I'm glad you liked post!

LiLu - Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed this and I really appreciate the comment!

Stephen - Great sentence to pick out and focus on. I won't deny that some days are just rotten, but we definitely have a chance to make them better if we start them with the right attitude. :)

Steve - You're so right. We can't predict everything in terms of what's going to happen in a day, but we can do our best to focus on what we want it to be and go after it.

Zmajeva - Yes we do! If we want to start off on the right foot, we have to make a big effort sometimes. On the good days, all of this stuff comes naturally, but on the bad days this can require a lot of hard work!

I love the idea of waking up early and giving myself the permission to experience a new day fully. Starting a day with saying thanks is definitely a great way to start! A happy start can do lots to set the direction for the day.

Evelyn - Me too! It's so exciting to know that every day has as much possibility as the last. I agree that a positive start to the day can definitely put you on the right path to have the best day possible.
