As someone once said, “it’s the little things that matter.” Therefore, you should always try to incorporate the little aspects into your everyday life that will improve your overall daily experience. Here are some ways in which to do so

1.) Always have positive thinking: This is the number one thing to do in any situation. Always think positively. No matter what you are going through, thinking negatively will get you nowhere and always slow you down.

2.) Exercise: Yes, it may seem a little absurd, and yes, most people hate exercise. However, excercise has been proven to be vitally important to improving overall health and mood. It is also a great way to relieve stress and makes you feel more confident and better about yourself. Lastly, it can also help with your creativity

3.) Have a designated “happy place”: Between work/school and home, life can get a little boring sometimes. Therefore, you should have a happy place, other than your school, work, or home, that makes you feel at ease and refreshed. This place may vary, anywhere from a bench in the park, to a coffee shop, to the mall

4.) Take time each night to prepare for the next day: Weather it be picking out an outfit, pre-making coffee, or packing a lunch, planning your day in advance can make your day so much easier and less time consuming. Especially when you’re running late in the morning, you won’t have time to full prepare everything you need. Trust me, your future self will thank you if you prepare in advance.

5.) Do something you enjoy or care about: Having a hobby is a great way to relax and feel like you have a purpose in life. It is great for stress and releasing all your creativity and having time to yourself to enjoy.

6.) Change your sheets regularly: It may seem like common sense. However, many people can often forget to do it or not do it often due to a busy life or laziness. Nevertheless, the extra effort is surely worth it, for there is no better feeling than to climb in a newly made, clean bed after a long, exhausting day.

7.) Make a vision board and hang it in front of your bed: It is really important to have your goals infant of you, and see the things that make you happy and inspire you every morning. It is a great way to start your day
