5 Ways to Improve Your Daily Life

As we spend more time at work and continue to feel the pressures of how to cope with daily stresses consider these tips that can improve your life.

  1. Do something for someone else.  It can be rewarding and nurturing others can reduce stress.
  2. Meditate: it only takes 10 minutes, sit comfortably, relax and focus on your breath with your eyes closed and your hands facing up on your lap
  3. Spend quality time with others
  4. Move more…exercise has been shown to elevate moods
  5. Change your way of thinking…”how we think affects how we feel” Interrupt negative thoughts and replace them with constructive positive thoughts.

Please share things you have done to enhance your daily life.

    Excellent post, thanks!

  2. Cook (or have someone else prepare) a wholesome, healthy meal. The break from thinking bikes, customers, finances, deadlines, etc to create a warm, satisfying meal – doesn’t have to be fancy – is a real treat for me.

    Also, I find calling (not emailing) an elderly relative or friend provides a great mental break for me.
