Setting aside a glass of water before I go to sleep for myself in the morning. Nothing wakes me up better.
Reading before bed instead of watching Netflix. Fell asleep quicker, woke up feeling better.
Stopped smoking cigarettes; just simply doing that has snowballed everything else for me to get healthier.
Changed my diet, started exercising, lost a good deal of weight, depression is getting less, and more good things that come with quitting!
Edit: a few words
Putting a treadmill near the basement TV. So many calories burned just doing what I'd normally do.
Use the 2 minute rule at work. Can also be 1 or 5 minute rule depending on what job you have.
Everything that can be done in 2 minutes, do it immediately. I get a lot of questions daily, some can be done fast. Plan the longer ones for later.
Don't need to keep looking at a list and wondering where to start or how to get it done. Helps me to keep focus, clear my head and work efficiently.
Sleep more. Used to sleep 4-5 hours a night. Couldnt concentrate, exhausted, my cycle was messed up (3 months between) and I was sick all the time. Now I get 7-8 hours a night. I feel so much better
Everytime I'm angry at someone for something I try to give it 20 mins before I say or do something. Usually I've cooled off or the situation has been explained. If not my argument/grievance is articulated way better than it would have been.
Moisturizer. Slug life all day every day my guys.
Walking at lunch instead of going out to eat. (This is in addition to walking to the bus in the morning and walking from the first bus stop). With only that and eating more vegetables, I have lost about 30 pounds in seven months and have my weight to my ideal weight.
Its more complex than that, in terms of what actually changes, but as an umbrella rule Eating better will have crazy beneficial impacts.
Realizing I’m never going to be in the mood to do *anything*. I would literally live the life of a cat if left to my own instincts and someone would feed me. Getting things done is ignoring my instincts and getting out of my mind. [Activate yourself.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lp7E973zozc
Stopped with the victim mentality and stopped looking for someone to 'take care of me' with things that I am more than capable of doing myself.
Stopped drinking booze one week ago (I was drinking nearly 750 mL a day). I was sick for days, but I already feel better about myself.
I started forcing myself to say yes whenever asked for something. I was extremely depressed so anytime someone asked me for help or to go out I would immediately say no and just stay at home alone. Now I say yes, within reason, and have found that helping others gives me so much satisfaction and has helped pull me out of my depression.
