1. Declutter your life.

This is all about getting rid of the old stuff (both physical and mental) to make room for new things. You can start by cleaning your house of unnecessary items, maybe give old clothes away. Then you can move on to clear your head. We also have mental “junk” from our past that’s keeping us from living the most meaningful life we can.

2. Try something new as often as you can.

The trap of routine is big and scary. Why not try taking a different route to work today or maybe stop by the park and watch the birds for a few seconds? This will help you put things into a different perspective and make you feel excited about life again.
