  • Take the time to do things for yourself on a daily basis: learn a new language, walk, dance, listen to music, etc.
  • Take the time to do things for the people you love. Give and enjoy it. You’ll feel better for it, and more useful.

Look back on your day and highlight five things that made it brighter: people, experiences, realizations. 

Also, remember to thank the people who have supported you.

Do all that you can do in a day. This means using the time you have effectively with each passing day.

Avoid setting unrealistic expectations for yourself about what you can do in a day - you may end feeling bad and disappointed.

Stop dwelling on everything you think your life lacks. Negativity is not constructive.

We don’t have to live in the shadow of what could have been if we shine a light on what’s working to allow it to grow.

Do something that will make today better than what’s come before.

Present tense and positive communication leads to progress.

Sometimes letting go and redirecting your attention elsewhere can be the most useful action to take.

When things seem to go bad, realize that there are always other options. And then assert exactly what you want for yourself.

Assert it to yourself, the people who support you, and the world. This is the first step in creating a life you’ll feel passionate about.
