These tips and tricks might make your life a little easier in the New Year.




1). According to sleep experts, waking up at the same time every day — yes, even on weekends — will help you sleep better: rather than sleeping in late on weekends, experts recommend getting up at your usual time, then taking an afternoon nap if you need one. This helps your body maintain a healthy sleep routine the entire week.

2). Make lists of things you’ve been putting off: then slowly start working through them, rewarding yourself a little as you go. Getting your to-do list out of your mind and onto paper will make each task feel more manageable.

3). Find a hobby that you can do with your hands: whether it’s pottery, knitting, bread making, or doing puzzles, using your hands to create something is an excellent feeling and great way to spend a little less time mindlessly scrolling on your phone.

4). Practice giving compliments: it could be something as small as commenting on how neat your coworker’s handwriting is or complimenting a friend’s new key-chain. It’s nice to be nice, and when you start actively looking for things to compliment people on, you’ll likely notice just how many wonderful things you’re surrounded by each day.

5). If you want to change your perspective on your to-do list, tell yourself that you “get” to do things, which allows you to view tasks and events as opportunities, not all obstacles: it’ll boost your feelings of gratitude (which is great for your mental health). Example: “I have to meet my friends tonight.” Instead use: “I get to see my friends tonight.”
