Before turning out the lights, you should think of at least…

Working on these small goals will help you gain hope for the future and a feeling of purpose in your life. Little by little, you will see yourself become the kind of person you were meant to be.

3. People you helped today

Serving others is one of the best ways to feel fulfilled in life. And the amazing thing is, these acts of service do not have to be anything grand. Simply smiling at a stranger and greeting them with a friendly “hello” can be service. As you do this, you will find a happiness that you have never experienced before. You will come to realize that it is the little selfless things you do each day that matter most.

4. Things you love about yourself

Instead of picking apart your flaws, try to think about all the things you love about yourself. It can be physical features, talents, behaviors, virtues, accomplishments, etc. These things will help prevent your mind from producing self-destructive thoughts after a disastrous day. Focusing on your strengths will increase your confidence and create a happier you.

5. Times you laughed today

A life filled with laughter is a life well lived. Try to laugh at least five times each day. Believe it or not, the simple act of laughing improves your mood, relieves stress and promotes good health. So don’t skip out on your daily dose of laughter. It will do you good.

6. People you care about

Turn your attention to the people that mean the most to you. Take time each night to think about the people that love, lift and build you. They could be family members, friends or coworkers. At the end of a rough day, thinking about these people will help build your self-assurance and remind you whose opinions are really important in your life.

7. Things you are grateful for

If you don’t have time to think about anything else before drifting off, think about this. Mentally list off seven or more things you are thankful for each night. In looking for things to be grateful for, you will find that you have been blessed with far more than you realize.

Whether you had a fabulous day or a horrendous day, try to always finish it with these powerful thoughts. They will influence your life for the better and help you avoid falling into the trap of negativity and self-destruction. Always remember, how you choose to end your day makes all the difference.
