We recently asked the members of BuzzFeed Community to share a small, easy thing people can do to change their lives for the better:
1. Put your phone on airplane mode whenever you need to get things done."
2. "Get up as soon as the alarm goes off. Don't just sit in bed doing nothing. It's a massive time waster and sets you up for a slow day."
3. "Do some spring cleaning on your social media."
4. "Make your bed every morning. It's such a quick thing that really helps your room feel instantly tidier."
5. "When commercials come on TV do some sit ups to kill the time instead of going on your phone!"
6. "Stop caring about what people think. You won't really give a shit in a few months or so."
7. "Study at the library instead of at home."
8. "If something takes less than 5 minutes to do, don't put off. Even if it's not urgent, do it anyway. Make this a habit and you'll be amazed at how much you end up accomplishing in one day."
9. "Start the day with 10 minutes of being mindful. Ground yourself, flesh our your emotions, and get in a safe mind space."
10. "Ask yourself this one question every day: 'What would the me from twenty years from now want me to do?"
11. "Organize your 'fridge."
12. "Go to the bank every payday and put a few dollars — whatever you can spare after your fixed expenses — into your savings account."
13. "Eat a damn fruit."
14. "NEVER be afraid to say no! In the end it's your time, and in the words of Professor Slughorn, 'Use it well.'"
15. "Stretch every morning after waking up, especially if you enjoy yoga. It'll wake your body and you'll feel better throughout the day."
16. "Smile as often as possible."
17. "Don't be afraid to ask for help. Whether it's something at work, at home, personally, physically, whatever, reach out to a friend or family member."
18. "Drink half your body weight (measured in pounds) in ounces every day. So, for example, a 150-pound person should drink 75 ounces of water a day."
19. "Whenever you feel the need to, express thanks or love for the people who are close to you."
