Write three things you're grateful for

Hell start with one if need be. The goal is to always be looking for the positive in each day. Yes, that's also for when you had the worst day and want to punch the next person who even dares to look at you.

It's easy and helps reframe the bad days. When you struggle to find a postive aspect in the day, you should say i'm grateful for being alive with a furture full of possibilities. Simple but does the trick in the long run.

Refuse once a week

Refuse once a week

If you accept everything coming your way, you'll never have time for yourself. Create it by using whatever you're not excited about during the week. start by refusing once and see how liberating it is. You can also set higher limits of time for others, so there’s always so leeway for yourself.

As a heads-up: if you currently accept everything, people will need some time to adapt to this change. But, with time, they will accept it.

Exercise for a minute when you wake up

Exercise for a minute when you wake up

One single minute. Nothing more, even in your busy life you can find the time for that right? Just a few simple exercises, for example you can do 30 pushups or a 30 seconds of planking.

Exercising first thing in the morning get the blood flowing and gets you out of the morning fog you could be experiencing. If you prefer a full workout in the morning, go ahead with it. But even if you prefer the evening, 1 minute in the morning doesn’t hurt. It helps.

Invest in experiences

Invest in experiences

How often do you spend money on objects? compare that number to how often you invest in experiences. what we rember isn't objects, its experiences. At best, objects help us remember some experiences.

Short-fun trips create memories and bonding experiences with friends for example.

Throw things away

Throw things away

If you never consciosly made an effort to throw something you had kept "because it could be usefull" Then try it today. Its liberating. you might get a tast for it and keep doing it. 

Either way, there’s a lot of rubbish you could throw away and that creates space. There’s also a lot of stuff you’re hanging onto even though it doesn’t deserve it.

Manage your money

Manage your money

This is not about investing, although that's also a good habit. This is about knowing where your money is coming from and going to. Most parents have this figured out, but many other people completely ignore this.

It doesn't take long. you can set up app, or go oldschool with pen and paper and write down your incomes and expenses and catogorize them. Soon enough you'll know where you spend your money. Simple and doesn't take more than a few seconds.

Stand up every hour

Stand up every hour

Try standing up it's simple and good for the body. The only hard thing is you might forget to stand up every hour.

You can try setting a reminder for yourself or if you have a smartwatch it will notify you that you have not moved.

The human body is not made for sitting on a chair all day.

Turn off notifications

Start for an hour a day. if you can last longer, do it. This isn't as ahard as you think it is. The only reason you're not doing it is that "being reachable" has become a habit. 

It takes about 25 minutes to regain focus, even if you only look at a notification for a second. Erase those for an hour and you'll be able to accomplish a lot more.

Watch the news less.

Watch the news less.

Chances are you've already started doing it in 2020 to avoid the mess this year was. If not, start today. No matter how curious you are, you don't need to watch the news 3 times a day, let alone 10. If you can, only watch or read the news once, around midday. You probably don't need more.

Discover one new thing a month

Discover one new thing a month

Drop all expectations and just discover something new each month. It could be driving you into a topic you've been curious about.

Either way, discovering something new is exciting. it's also useful because it keeps us curious and slowly expands our skills or knowlegde over time. Do it the way you want. Spend 10 hours on it one Saturday or a few minutes a day for a month. What matters is for you to discover something new.

Make your bed

Make your bed

Start with a win by making your bed. Another simple habit to add. It doesn’t “change your life right away” but, again, that’s not the goal. All we want here is to slightly improve it without messing with our general flow.

Get up, make your bed, and then follow with loads of other wins for the rest of the day.

Spend a minute a day with yourself.

Spend a minute a day with yourself.

Just one, come on. I know you can do it. No phone. No computer. No tablet, nor friends or pets around. Just you and your thoughts. Do this while on the toilet if need be. Doing this a minute won’t change your life either but it’ll help you start being aware of what you think, instead of being on autopilot.

Start with a minute and increase this as you go. Think about what you think. Talk to yourself. Just accept whatever your thoughts are and move on. Self-awareness is way underrated in our world.

Ask yourself whether what you're doing is worth it

Ask yourself whether what you're doing is worth it

There's a lot of actions we do that don't matter. To be more precise, many aren't worth our time. We finish hem and move on until we think back a week later thinking about how much time we wasted on it.

If you had to months left to live, would you be laying on the couch binge-watching the queen's gambit? Or would you be writing that masterpiece you've always wanted.

If a task takes 2 minutes, do it right away

If a task takes 2 minutes, do it right away

There’s a lot of advice about doing whatever takes less than 5 minutes right away. I disagree. 5 minutes is still quite some time and can mess the rest of my schedule. Instead, I’ve set 2 minutes as the higher limit to do right away.

If it takes 5 minutes, write it on a paper you hang in front of you. Then do it within the next hour and a half. It gives you some leeway yet prevents you from procrastinating for days.

Read for 15 minutes a day

Read for 15 minutes a day

I know this one takes a bit longer but it's worth it. As Jim Kwik says all the time, "Leaders are readers." It's not just leaders, it's everybody who wants to live a better life. Whether you read fiction of non-fiction doesn't matter. Both have their advantages. What matters is you read.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
