The 99 Days of Wellbeing

Updated: Dec 8, 2020



Day 1

There is nothing wrong with you.

There is no one better at being you than YOU.

You’re already brilliant as you are.

When you realise there is nothing wrong with you – you’ll also realise there’s nothing to perfect.


Day 2

What I if told you

You read the first line wrong?

Sometimes you need to just look at life from a different perspective.

Sometimes your beliefs stop you from seeing things in a way that is helpful.


Day 3

Imagine it is your 100th birthday.

All of your family have gathered together.

Your great, great, great, great granddaughter is going to say a few words about you.

What would she say?

What would you want her to say?

How could you make it come true?


Day 4

Social distancing can also be applied to social media.

Distance yourself from negative people who constantly complain and display irrational outrage.

Curate what you consume.


Day 5

When you feel thoughts running away and creating imaginary futures you don’t like.

Ground yourself by asking 3 questions:

What’s the worst that could happen?

What’s the best that could happen?

= What’s the most likely that will happen?


Day 6

Read something. Anything.

Whatever your preference – education, fact or fiction – getting in lost in thousands of words that someone else has taken the time to construct can be magical.

Books are like sweets for your mind.


Day 7

Be MAD today.

Make

A

Difference

That’s all.


Day 8

Be grateful for what you have – not what you haven’t.

When you focus on what you lack you lose focus on what you have.


Day 9

Attitude is a choice.

We all know the right choice to make.

Sometimes we just forget.

Try not to forget.


Day 10

Every day is a new opportunity to:

Say yes to the things in your life that are important.

Say no to the things that aren’t.


Day 11

Decide now to grow.

Tiny changes bring remarkable results.

A 1% improvement every day for a year aggregates to you being 37 times better off by the end of the year.

Take a small step today.

Another tomorrow.

Repeat.


Day 12

You can be the most positive person your family meets today.


Day 13

When the world is in a difficult place.

Like it is now.

Think carefully about what goes into your mind.

Extend conversations that make you feel good.

End ones that make you feel bad.


Day 14

There is probably someone who feels more anxious, scared and worried than you do.

Help them to feel better.

It will help you to feel better.


Day 15

Success is a series of good, small decisions consistently made over a sustained period of time.

You can reach success every day by consistently being slightly better than the day before.

The power of compounding is amazing.


Day 16

You’re stuck with yourself forever.

So you might as well be stuck with a version of you who you love, respect and care about.


Day 17

How to get more done and procrastinate less.

Turn off the Internet.


Day 18

Momentum builds motivation.

Track how many days in a row you exercise for, read for, meditate for…

When you miss a day, start the count again and rebuild the momentum.

“Never miss twice.” -James Clear


Day 19

If you want to grow, it will take effort.

You can’t “believe” yourself to success.

Profound growth comes from:

1. Time

2. Effort

3. Input

4. Practice

It takes hard work – but knowing what to work hard on is a big part of the process.


Day 20

Your attitude is your superpower.

It’s free, within your control and when used positively is the gift that keeps on giving.


Day 21

Stack a desired habit on to an existing habit.

Two minutes of exercise whilst the kettle boils.

Read for five minutes straight after brushing your teeth in the evening.

Write three points of gratitude straight before getting into bed.


Day 22

You are only where you are right now.

Might as well try to make the most of it.


Day 23

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

-Wayne Dyer

You are only one thought away from a completely different experience of life.


Day 24

Get enough sleep.

Things to do during the day that help:

Exercise

Go outdoors

Avoid caffeine

Avoid alcohol

No bright lights before bed


Day 25

Be kind.

When you are kind you might not remember it.

The other person may never forget it.


Day 26

The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.

When others around you are being negative, your silence is the sound of acceptance.


Day 27

It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, or what you can do.

Other people will never care that you know, until they know that you care.


Day 28

The way you talk to yourself is the programme running the software of your life.

You can talk yourself into achieving something as quickly as you can talk yourself out of it.


Day 29

A brilliant life won’t happen by accident.

If you want a brilliant life with brilliant outcomes, you have to work for it.

It costs effort and energy.

But it’s worth it.


Day 30

You deserve to feel happy.

Even on the days when you think you don’t.


Day 31

Effort is important.

But without strategy you will get nowhere.

In short: What you don’t focus on is as important as what you do focus on.


Day 32

The things you want and the things worth working for are hardly ever in your comfort zone.

Stretch.


Day 33

The end of one thing can also be the start of another.

Don’t forget that.


Day 34

What sort of person do you want to be?

Why do you want to be that person?

How will you prove it to yourself every day?


Day 35

It’s too easy to say thank you. There is a difference between saying thank you and being thankful.

Gratitude is the quality of being thankful.

When you say thank you, it is something you do.

When you feel thankful, it is something you are.


Day 36

Perfection is not a good goal.

Because it doesn’t exist.


Day 37

‘Sonder’

The profound feeling of realising everyone, including complete strangers, has a life with just as many (and often more) problems than your own, which they are constantly living despite not telling you about it or you being aware of it.


Day 38

There are two types of ideas.

The ones you have.

The ones you do something about.

Only the second one can change anything.


Day 39

Something I’ve recently learned.

Asking “What’s the rush?” is a pretty good prescription for life.


Day 40

Be kind.

You might not remember being kind to someone.

They might never forget it.


Day 41

Stop trying to be perfect.

The flaws, rough edges, and cracks make us interesting and unique.

No need to be perfect.


Day 42

Be a conscious consumer of information.

Especially news, social media and gossip.

Have control in a world of abundance.


Day 43

There

Is

No

Competition

You’re

Only

Against

Yourself


Day 44

There are better days in the future.

One of them might be tomorrow.


Day 45

If the news bothers you.

Choose not to watch it.


Day 46

If you want to improve yourself and be happier.

It takes one small step at a time.

Being 1% better tomorrow than today is hardly noticeable.

But after a year.

You’ll be 37 times better than when you started.

Be patient.


Day 47

Tarzan can’t hold on to the vine in front and vine behind at the same time.

You’re like Tarzan.

To move forward you have to let go of what’s holding you back.

Sometimes to grow, you have to let go.


Day 48

The problem in your thoughts is usually much bigger than the problem in real life.


Day 49

Life isn’t Top Trumps.

It’s not about being better than anyone else.


Day 50

Scroll less.

Think more.

Live better.


Day 51

Be kind.

To others.

And yourself.


Day 52

Did you know?

You don’t have to be good at something for it to be good for you.


Day 53

The ‘stuff’ you have won’t make you any happier.


Day 54

Your attention is a currency.

Choose wisely how you spend it.


Day 55

What is the smallest thing in your life you take for granted?

Show gratitude towards it today.


Day 56

Things worth doing are usually not easy.

Embrace the challenge.

Savour the reward.

If you think you can’t.

You won’t.


Day 58

Putting out someone else’s light won’t make your flame burn any brighter.

Ask yourself what you stand for.

Then what you stand against.

Live your values. Don’t laminate them.

Day 63

Problems are never solved by people who only want to complain about them.


Day 64

The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.


Day 65

Did you get up this morning to ordinary or extraordinary?

Did you even realise you had a choice?

Day 67

You SMELL.

You are:

Shaping

Minds

Every day to

Love

Learning

Sometimes, in some cases, things really do need to get worse before they get better.

When the worst happens – just remember – it isn’t permanent.
