Getting 20 additional minutes of sleep can double your work performance. 2. Drinking more water.

Taking the stairs. Caleb Drost (C.C. BY-ND 2.0) / Via flic.kr Think of it as an IRL stair machine without the expensive gym membership...because that's exactly what it is. A two-minute staircase climb can burn 10x the calories that standing in an elevator would. 5. Stretching. bradleypjohnson (CC BY 2.0) / Via flic.kr Go ahead — give your toes a quick touch. You stretched. Great. Your muscles will thank you later. 6. Cooking. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Toei Animation / Via neondystopian.tumblr.com Yes, this can be low effort. Instead of going to a diner for eggs, make your own at home. There's no way your pan is as greasy as their griddle. 7. Meditating. Ky (C.C.

Not only will your appreciation grow, but your appetite will lessen. 9. Washing your hands more often. MIKI Yoshihito (C.C. BY 2.0) / Via flic.kr Not just after you've used the toilet. Washing your hands with soap and water for 15 seconds can help prevent the spread of mild conditions as well as more gravely serious ones. 10. Doing a good deed.

Reaching out to a friend. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Broadway Video / Via whywelovedrake.com Share a joke with a buddy and really flex those social 💪 💪 💪 while also relieving pain. That's right: Humour has been linked to helping tolerate discomfort. 12. Unplugging.

Read a book or stare at the wall — whatever helps keep you offline for a bit. 13. Relaxing. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Abso Lutely Productions / Via comedycentral.tumblr.com Seriously, chill. Notice how stressing out over everything wasn't on this list? That was not a mistake. Being healthy doesn’t have to be bland or difficult.
