1. Find some quiet time in your day.

Even if it's just five minutes in the morning or right before bed — set the timer on your phone and just focus on your breathing. Trust me, it's life-changing.

2. Drink A LITTLE more water.

Now, don't go buy some giant water bottle to lug around all day; we all know that won't last. Just try to drink a little more water — maybe a cup with your morning coffee. Setting the bar low means you'll be more likely to keep it up, which is better than a water binge followed by a dry, dry year.

3. Take a few more walks.

You don't need to run a marathon, just walk to the watercooler every now and then. It feels good to get up.

5. Call your friends and family sometimes instead of texting.

It's really nice to hear a loved one's voice. Better yet, FaceTime sometimes too.

8. Be kinder and more forgiving to yourself.

In 2016, make it a point to treat yourself how you'd treat your BFF. Would you call your best friend gross if she had a zit? No, I don't think so, so why do that to yourself?

9. And most importantly, give fewer fucks.

Life is fleeting; 2016 will be one more year closer to becoming one with the Earth again. Don't waste time worrying about dumb shit.
