3. Improve Your Self Discipline

With self discipline, you have to wire your brain to know limits. Every day, you need to make yourself do things that you don't want to do, and stop yourself from doing things that you want to do, but shouldn't.

Regularly having fun is a major key to maintaining a happier life. People who have fun are twenty times more likely to feel happy. Embrace the fun and happy moments of your life.

6. Declutter Mentally and Physically

Having clutter in your house takes 50% more time to manage your household, all of this unused shit takes up a lot of mental energy. Creating a to-do list to get rid of clutter can help greatly but if you don't cross off the things you need to do can cause more stress. This is called the Zeigarnik effect, by not finishing a task it will cause your brain to constantly think about these unfinished tasks.
