    Improve your life the lazy way!

    1. Set your alarm a half hour earlier.

    How many mornings have you rushed through your morning routine in a crazy whirl? Waking up an extra half hour may sound like a terrible idea, but it'll give you a little extra breathing room in the morning to to slow down and actually get your day started on the right foot.

    2. Try drinking two glasses of water when you wake up.

    3. Exercise before you eat breakfast.

    4. Make your bed.

    5. Splash around in a cold shower.

    6. Smile more.

    7. Attempt to brush your teeth with your nondominant hand.

    If you're left-handed, use your right hand, or vice versa. It'll give your brain a small dose of exercise by challenging your brain to do something new. It may initially confuse your brain, but over time, you'll build up additional neurological strength and awareness that'll make your brain stronger overall.

    8. Give flossing a try.
