Just Go Exercise

While your mind may cook up excuses, it is a fact that any kind of exercise, even walking for a short while will make you feel better, and will increase your heart rate. It is even better with friends, at the gym, with music on.

Avoid Social Media

Change Your Thinking

  • Go back to being in charge of your life.
  • The way to bring abundance and happiness in your life is to be a giver.
  • Do what you want instead of feeling obliged to do something you don't want and feel miserable about it.
