When it comes to creating a more balanced, happy life, we often look to massive lifestyle shifts as the only solution. (If you, like me, have ever set a New Year’s resolution to simply “be healthier”, you probably know what I mean).This mentality often results in overwhelm, lack of sustainability, and a huge sense of frustration when results don’t come as quickly or as easily as we’d like.
Sometimes all is takes is a quick adjustment in our daily routine to change our lives. Here are a few habits that make your life better :
- Let Someone Go in Front of You in Line – At the bank, grocery store, even on a freeway on ramp. Maybe not every day, but what’s the harm in saying “No, you first,” every once in a while? That’s right, there is none. After you…..
- Read a Poem – Your high school nemesis error and misery ridden status updates might give you a delicious sense of schadenfreude, but a quick hit of Dorothy Parker will do you one (much) better. Pick a random poem, and don’t worry if you don’t quite understand what it’s trying to say. Just soak it in.
- Floss – Morning. Night. After meals. Why aren’t you doing this already? Future you will thank you when you still have all your teeth.
