Even if your grades are slipping and your partner just broke up with you, there are plenty of reasons you should be excited to wake up each morning. Every single day, little things occur that make life worth living. You might not take the time to appreciate them, but you should start seeing how special they are. Here are some of the reasons you should be excited to wake up each morning, even if you think the day will be a disaster:
1. Breakfast Foods
If food can't cheer you up, what can? The first thing you can do after hopping out of bed is walk into the kitchen to whip up some breakfast. A nice, big plate of eggs is one of the best reasons why you should be excited to wake up. Satisfying your stomach is the first step to making your day a good one.
2. Fresh Air
It might be cold, rainy, or snowy, but it's always nice to step out into the fresh air. Appreciate the fact that you're free to roam around to any place that you'd like. You even have the potential to travel the world if you want to do so. Be happy that you don't have to be stuck in one place forever. You can walk or drive wherever you please.
3. New Updates
When you're up until three in the morning, you'll get bored by the Internet, because nothing new is popping up. However, after a few hours of sleep, they'll be tons of new updates on the social media sites and news sites that you visit. You'll have plenty of new things to read.
4. Catchy Music
You can listen to music in your car while you drive to work. You can pop your your headphones in as you walk to class. Music always makes you feel better, so play your favorite song, and get ready to take on your day. Who knows, you might even discover your new favorite band today.
5. Positive Emotions
You might hate emotions, because they allow you to be sad and mad and annoyed. However, think of all of the positive emotions you'll experience throughout the day. You're going to laugh, you're going to smile, and you're going to have at least one meaningful conversation. It's not all bad.
6. TV Shows
If you have a bit of free time, you can watch some Netflix on your laptop or actually turn on the TV. There are hundreds of shows just waiting to be watched. If you haven't finished--or started--Orange is the New Black, then you can easily kill a few hours.
7. Stepping Forward
There must be something you're looking forward to in the future. Maybe it's finding the love of your life. Maybe it's finally moving out of your parent's house. No matter what it is, every day that you wake up is a day closer to what you're looking forward to.
It's hard to get out of bed when you're comfy under the covers, but you have to find the strength to make it through the day. Stop worrying about all of the things you have to do and start thinking about all of the things you are lucky enough to do. What's the first thing you think about every morning when you wake up?
