I can usually be pretty positive but I find just after I wake up is the worst time of day for my mood. I get a lot of negative thoughts going through my head. Just wondering if anyone else experiences this and how they deal with it?

Really simple idea that could make all the difference: meditate for just a minute as the first thing (or one of the first things) you do after getting out of bed. As I said in a recent vlog, it's counter-intuitive, the idea usually doesn't sound very effective. But for me personally, I'm always amazed at how much impact a few minutes of closing-my-eyes-and-'thinking-of-nothing' does, it.is.nuts.
Im more likely to get negative thoughts before falling asleep than in the morning, well its not necessarily negative but it takes a while for my mind to shut up and sleep, i tend to think about pointless stuff and my life in general, though i suspect its common for most people to do this.

It would be nice if there was an easy way to quiet the mind and get to sleep quicker, i reckon meditation is a good idea but its not something i've tried often enough so i guess i need practice.
Great advice already, I would add some other little things I can think of:

* Don't wake up with a BEEP BEEP BEEP!!! alarm, that is a stressful and violent departure from your possibly relaxed dream state.

* Do wake up with some gentile (not negative) music, preferably instrumental, my phone can play music, so I use that, you can also get ipod players, cd alarm clocks, etc.

* Know that the time just before sleep and just after waking up are when your sub-conscious is most receptive because the conscious mind is not a full operating intensity. So read some Napoleon Hill and make an audio recording of your goals and listen before you go to bed.

* Don't judge the negative thoughts as being bad. That is resisting the now. Just observe them and know that everything is temporary. Then follow your plan for how you organized your day to go.
