Take some quiet time
At the beginning and end of each day, allow yourself a few minutes to reflect. Meditate, read the news or a book, reflect on the day.
Check in with a friend
Even if you’re busy, reach out to someone important to you. It could be someone you speak to a lot or someone you haven’t heard from in a while.
Drink a lot of water
Remember to keep yourself hydrated and reap the many benefits of drinking water every day.
If you don’t have time to go to the gym, you can still get in some physical activity. If you have a desk job, get up and move around, don’t sit at your desk all day. Take 5 minutes to walk to a friend’s office, for example.
Take a new path
Instead of driving or walking down the same road every day, go a different route. The change of scenery will be refreshing.
Make a to-do-today list
Write down 3 or 4 things you can accomplish right away, and mark them off your list. It doesn’t matter if they’re big or small; the goal is to make you feel good about getting something done.
Make a new friend
You don’t have to find a lifelong best friend. Start a conversation with someone at the grocery store or a co-worker you don’t know well.
