Have your morning coffee in silence. Sometimes just putting the newspaper aside, turning off the TV, or refusing to check emails while indulging in that smooth cup of whatever it is you like to drink helps your day to begin amazingly well. You might even consider turning off your mind. Just refuse to think about anything at all, other than the smell, warmth, and flavor of the first cup of the morning.
We hear a lot about paying it forward these days. But it actually is a very good way to boost someone's morale, and make you feel as though you've made some small difference in someone's life for the day. You never know who might be behind you in the drive-thru line. They may be scraping together the last bit of change they have to buy food. Give it a try by purchasing their meal, and see how you feel. It's certainly a win-win for all involved.
