3 Ways to Be Better Today

Posted on October 25, 2016 in

1 – Start a new healthy habit by spending less than one minute improving your physical (and perhaps mental) health. Do one or two crunches or squats before increasing the your reps next week. Not your thing? Take a walk around the block or just step outside for a full minute for some fresh air. You will feel a little bit better after you do.

2 – Always use the bathroom when you come across one that’s available. I’ve recently discovered how terrible it is to have to pee when you can’t. Never again, my friends.

3 – Shake up your sound routine today. Instead of doing the dishes in silence, download a podcast to listen to. Instead of listening to a podcast when you run, make a running playlist.

1 – Thinking about going out of town to visit family for the holidays? Take some time to research other cool things in the area.  Find something exciting to do that will take off some of the pressure and stress of visiting.

2 – Take some time to fix up your grammar. In spite of being a writer and typing every single day of my life, I also need a quick little refresher every once in a while. It’s usually for all those pesky comma and quotation mark issues.

3 – Depression is nothing to hide from. Let’s take some time to think about mental health today.

1 – I posted the first part of this post just the other day, but the second part about depression is just as important.

2 – Writing can be therapeutic. I write every day, but not necessarily always about the things I want to write about. This list should convince you to write more often, just for yourself.

2 – Learn how and when to end a conversation. Especially if you don’t want to talk about the election with all your family members.

3 – I was fascinated to learn that the “Griffith Park Jane Doe” was finally identified after nearly 50 years. I got a lot out of reading about her story and remembering that every Jane or John Doe probably has somebody looking for them. What can we do to help?
