Walking daily to improve your life, walking girl picture,

Get out in nature.

I am pretty sure you underestimate how important this is. Being in nature simply makes you more creative, improves your memory and more importantly it reduces stress.

Friends, family, photo,

Hang out with friends and family.

Never forget about your friends and family. Don’t get so busy working or doing something else that you forget about them. Harvard happiness expert Daniel Gilbert identified that spending time with friends and family is one of the biggest sources of happiness in our lives. Not being socially connected with people can make you lonely. And loneliness can lead to heart attack, stroke and diabetes.

Reading books might improve your life a lot, reading book, cat, gif

Read a book.

Simply grab a book and read. I really love that quote – A book is a magic portal to another dimension. And I believe it’s true. Why? Because reading a book is the best way to be somewhere else, without actually being there. I know that for those who don’t read books that might sound silly, but it’s not. Try to read for atleast 20-30 minutes a day. Reading makes you smarter. Reading helps keep your brain sharp. Also it improves your vocabulary. Books also boost your creativity. Spending 20-30 minutes a day reading a book can improve your life a lot. See Also (Things To Stop Doing In Order To Be Happier)

Do a random act of kindness.

Give a smile to a stranger, not a creepy one or tell them how beautiful they are! Don’t forget to express your gratitude and more importantly try to pass it on. Stickleyman says: “Take a moment and express gratitude. Sometimes life sucks. Sometimes life is awesome. But it can always be worse. I’ve found this has helped me in my approach to everyday life.” It will make you happier. It will improve your relationships. It can make you a better person. It can make life better for everyone around you.

Fake a laugh to improve your life, fake laugh will make you smile

Smile with no reason.

Even a fake smile will turn into a real one if you fake it long enough. It’s proven. You can try it right now. Go to the mirror and try to give your best smile for 1 minute. Don’t look anywhere else. I bet you ended up laughing.

Compliment people.

Why? Because it’s good to make other people smile. And don’t forget that you’ve got to give to receive, and it’s simply nice to make other people happy.

 

Improve your life, mouse exercising, things to do to improve your life

Exercise.

Exercise regularly. Not only will you keep your weight in check and make your doctor happy, but the routine will give you greater energy and focus to tackle your everyday troubles. Especially if your job requires you to sit for 6-7 hours, exercising is a must. (Go to the gym and Hulk it up or go take a run and Bolt it up.) Regular exercise is an important part of not just physical health, but also mental health. So try to participate in a physical activity you enjoy.

Taking a nap everyday is sure to improve your life, dog, nap, sleep

Take a nap.

A nap restores alertness. A nap prevents burnout. A nap heightens sensory perception. A nap reduces the risk of heart disease. A nap makes you more productive. I just listed you 5 good reasons to take 20-30 minutes naps everyday.

Talk to stranger and you will improve your day, gif

Talk to a stranger.

Why not talk to that beautiful woman or man you saw on the street? What do you have to lose? That’s right, nothing. Try to do something you are not so comfortable. Soon you will experience a boost in your confidence.

Your turn…

What would you add to the list? What activity we could do daily that could help us improve our life?

    Cris,

    LOL on Sheldon. I do that a lot.

    Talking to strangers is one of my favorite travel traditions. I strike up conversations here and there. Makes life interesting. You learn so much from new sources of wisdom, right?

      Yes, like there is a lot to learn from strangers. Also you never know you might find your best buddy like that.

    I love this list, Hristiqn. I would add meditation to the list, taking time alone to reflect. I love your animated GIFs too. They’re great and get the point across. Thanks for sharing!

    When we apply ALL these principles then and only then we will effectively be able to influence other people and one more thing left here, lets help people when they need us and talk gently to others as well. That way they will be attracted to us because we are one of the few people who stand out by NOT saying to people what they need to hear viciously.

    I read through these and thought “I can do this from the comfort of my bed!”

    #1 ‘Get out into nature’ (bed is right next to open window overlooking nature in backyard….check)

    #2 ‘Hang out with friends and family’ (Alex counts as both, right?…..check)

    #3 ‘Read a book’ (just finished “Healing with Vitamins”, “Strengths Finder 2.0” and “Forever Barbie”, next up “The art of Stress Free Productivity”…..check)

    #4 to #8 ‘Do a random act of kindness’, ‘Smile with no reason’, ‘Compliment people’, ‘Exercise’, ‘Take a nap’ (check, check, check, check, check – yep, still in bed!)

    …..and then I got to #9.

        Great blog Hristiqn! You have inspired me to see if I can accomplish everything on the list at least once a day, but I think I’ll try it out in the real world instead of ‘in bed’! 🙂

    Eat Healthy. Nothing is more satisfying than knowing the calories you just consumed will contribute to your body’s well-being instead of its destruction.
