1. Turn off your cell phone
If you’re constantly looking down at your phone, life is passing you by without you even realizing it. Use your cell phone only when absolutely necessary, and at other times put it away so you can engage with friends and family and be in the moment.
2. Treasure the simple things
Waking up to puppy-dog kisses, taking a walk outside on a sunny day and enjoying a really good cup of coffee. Sometimes, it’s the simple things that make the biggest
difference in your day. Don’t let them slip away without acknowledging them.
3. Slow down and unwind
We live in a fast-paced world that is all about instant feedback and gratification. Take time to escape the rat race by slowing down and unwinding at some point
during the day. Sit outside on the porch to read the paper and drink your morning coffee for a nice, peaceful start to your day. Figure out what makes you feel most
relaxed, and find a way to make it a part of your daily routine.
4. Focus on things you’re passionate about
Aristotle once said, “We are what we repeatedly do.” If you’re doing something you aren’t totally enthused about, you might want to rethink its role in your life.
5. Have a sense of humour and laugh off mistakes
If you’re human, you’re going to make mistakes. Rather than agonize over them, laugh them off and learn from them. Life’s too short to take yourself too seriously.
