Things to do everyday for happiness and health
I was catching up on posts over at The Happiness Project and ran across a post with a similar title. This one line caught my attention:
“Put your keys and wallet away in the same place”
It got me thinking how much less stressed I’d be in the morning or when I arrive home from work if I always knew I had both my wallet and keys with me. Sometimes I get to work only to find I have one of them. Sometimes I get home, worried that I’ve locked myself out of the apartment.
Such a simple thing, right?
So here’s a few other things that I am going to follow to make my days happier and healthier:
- Clean the kitchen after dinner.
- Lay off the salt.
- Stop at the gym after work. For 10 minutes or an hour, it doesn’t matter how long.
- Walk the dog
- Take something with you when you leave a room(socks to the laundry. Dishes to the sink). Suddenly, I remember my dad telling me this when I was young.
- Take 5 minutes to appreciate one thing each day. (The sunset. The way the dog jumps when you come home. The way the leaves fall from the trees this time of year)
That’s all I have. What would be on your list?
