Some things you must do to improve your life.

You sometimes wonder why some people live, happier,older,more successful and healthier than others. With no other of importance here are some things you must do to improve your life.

1) Appreciate nature

You probably seriously underestimate how important this is. Being in nature reduces stress, makes you more creative, improves your memory and may even make you a better person. Just looking or smelling the fragrance of a flower can improve your mental alertness.

 2) Exercise

Exercise is very important; other than health benefits exercise makes you smarter, happier, improves sleep, increases libido and makes you younger. Take a 10 minutes’ walk every day. Avoid the lift and use the stairs sometimes.

 3) Spend time with friends and family

Relationships are worth more than you think .Not feeling socially connected can kill you. Loneliness can lead to heart attack, stroke and diabetes. The longest lived people on the planet all place a strong emphasis on social engagement and good relationships. Friends are key to improving your life.

 4) Eat right. 

We live in the fast age. Fast foods are not the right type of food for you. Avoid them if you can. Don’t skip breakfast, if you do, make up for lunch. Add fruits and vegetables to your daily diet.

5) Meditate

Meditation can increase happiness, meaning in life. Along similar lines, prayer can make you feel better — even if you’re not religious.

6) Get enough sleep

You can’t cheat yourself on sleep and not have it affect you. Good sleep does improve decision making. Lack of sleep can make you more likely to behave unethically. Also, people with slept debt do poorly at work and academics.

7) Challenge yourself

Learning a new skill and another language can keep your mind sharp. Music lessons increase intelligence. Challenging your beliefs strengthens your mind. Not getting an education or taking advantage of opportunities are two of the things people look back on their lives and regret the most.

8) Laugh sometimes

People who use humor to cope with stress have better immune systems, reduced risk of heart attack and stroke, experience less pain during child birth. Laughter should be like a daily vitamin. Look at the mirror and laugh over nothing until it becomes real laughter. I do that sometimes.

9) Touch someone

Touching can reduce stress, improve team performance, and help you be persuasive.  Sex* also helps prevent heart attacks, improve your immune system and extend your life. 

10) Be optimistic

Optimism can make you healthier, happier and extend your life. The Army teaches it in order to increase mental toughness in soldiers. Being overconfident improves performance.

The list is endless. Work on these and add yours in the comment area. Hope this better improves your life?
