1. Going to bed a little earlier.

Even if it’s only a half hour earlier, that’s more Z’s than you would’ve caught if you were awake. Getting 20 additional minutes of sleep can double your work performance.

3. Dancing.

You can dance if you want to...and should! Get your heart bumping and start fist-pumping whenever possible. 💃🏻 💃🏻 💃🏻

4. Taking the stairs.

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.

Go ahead — give your toes a quick touch. You stretched. Great. Your muscles will thank you later.

6. Cooking.

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.

If you have a free hour, do it for an hour. If you have a free minute, do it for a minute. You'll feel better than if you didn't. 👍 👍 👍

8. Pacing yourself.

Whether it's a delicious meal or delightful beverage, give yourself time to properly enjoy it. Not only will your appreciation grow, but your appetite will lessen.

9. Washing your hands more often.

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.

While this is unlikely to make you jacked, you will definitely feel better about yourself and, most importantly, help someone out.

11. Reaching out to a friend.

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.

Your phone and laptop aren't the only things that need their batteries charged. Read a book or stare at the wall — whatever helps keep you offline for a bit.

13. Relaxing.

Seriously, chill. Notice how stressing out over everything wasn't on this list? That was not a mistake.
