These suggestions of 5 things that are worth doing every day are from Jill Mazullo.

Work your heart. Maybe you’re a runner or play a sport; good for you. You don’t need equipment to make your heart pump. You don’t even have to go outside. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Do situps in your living room. Park and walk the last block. Between the time you get up and when you go to bed, make your heart pound in your chest from some exertion. Your heart will thank you.

Lay down. This isn’t about taking a nap. Right after you worked your heart is a good time to do this. Stop everything, lay down where you are, and close your eyes. This is your moment. There are no crying children, no boss calling for you. Just breathe. Let your mind drift. Give yourself two minutes. When you get up you will feel calm.


Look up. When you know where you’re going, you look down. Try looking up for no reason at all. Notice the leaves are starting to change, or someone has placed a flower box outside their window, or the sun is slanting through the trees in a soft, glowing way. You may inspire someone else to look up to see what you saw. They won’t know what you’re looking at. That’s okay. They’ll discover their own beautiful sight that’s different from yours.

Write. Every day, take a few minutes and write. Just for yourself. It doesn’t matter that you’re a terrible writer or can’t spell. Write what you ate for breakfast; write what you saw when you looked up. Write about the co-worker down the hall. Stop when you reach three pages. Don’t show it to anyone. Write again tomorrow, and don’t read what you wrote yesterday. You’ll start to figure out what’s eating away at you. You’ll start to make small changes in your life that make it the life you’re meant to lead.

Have nerve. Do something that makes your palms sweat. Raise your hand when you don’t know the answer. Join a conversation with people you don’t know. Volunteer to do something you’ve never done before. Contradict someone you think is wrong. Order a dish you’ve never tried. Talk to the person you love. Dare to be yourself.
