1. Watch Outside your Window or Take a Walk

1. Watch Outside your Window or Take a Walk

Watch outside your window, take a walk and just be aware of what is going around.

This can help you to become more observant, aware and happier. Watch outside your window right after you wake up for 5 or 10 minutes. Watch the clouds as they move, watch the people as they walk or talk, watch the cars as they pass.

When you watch outside your window or when you take a walk try to be fully aware of where you are and what you are seeing. Don't just walk without paying attention of what's going on.

2. Set a Timer (5 Minutes or more) And Watch the Time Go By

Take your phone, turn off notifications and set a 5 minutes or more timer.

Watching the time go by, doing nothing, can surprise you of the amount of time you are taking for granted.

Just slow down and watch the time go by. There is no rush.

Like the previous exercise, try to be fully aware of the time. It’s okay to think, but whenever your mind wonders try to be aware of your thoughts, acknowledging them without judgment.

3. Meditate. Meditate. Meditate

Meditation is the act of focus on one thing at a time. It can be your breath, bodily sensations, or even a song that you like.

If you are a beginner, try to meditate 5 minutes or 10 every day.

Try some guided meditations on Youtube or try using some apps.

You can meditate also when you eat, when you walk, when you do something you like. This is called mindfulness. The act of simply enjoying what you are doing, focusing on the present, savoring every second that goes by.

4. Capture Your Life

Make photos of what you are eating, what you are doing or simply what you like. Capture your life so whenever you want you can go back and see visually what you were doing in that specific moment.

Let's see you are walking and you see a beautiful flower. You can take a photo of it and once in a while, you can see the photo and you will remember instantly the joy and happiness of seeing that flower.
