Talk To Someone You Care About

Research shows that loneliness and isolation are so bad for you they can literally take years off your life. And that spending time with someone you care about, or at least communicating with someone you care about, is one of the most powerful methods there is for feeling better.

So even if you live alone, or are so busy that you and the others in your household barely see each other, make sure to reach out to someone you care about at least once a day. It could be by text or phone or video chat or some other method. It doesn't have to be in person.

Something like 80 percent of the world imbibes some form of caffeine every day. Maybe that's you, or maybe you prefer herbal tea or even just water. Whatever it is, that first drink of a hot (or cold) beverage each day is a small but definite pleasure for most of us.

Not all climates or all kinds of weather are conducive to spending time outside, but if you can spend a little time outdoors each day, try to do that.

There's evidence that reading books provide an amazing host of health and brain benefits, including possibly increased longevity. That's a really good reason to do it.

Napping isn't for everyone. And a lengthy nap can leave you with sleep inertia, a.k.a. grogginess. But a brief nap of 10 to 30 minutes can improve your mental function, memory, and problem-solving ability as well as improve your mood.

All of us live super busy, overscheduled lives. But, increasingly, research tells us there are big benefits to being a little less busy and spending a little more time doing nothing, or at least nothing more productive than staring out a window.

Laughing is really good for you. So, every day, try to find something to at least make you chuckle.
