Create something. It does not matter what it is. Something from within you. I am not only talking about something artistic. It can be anything.

Crawl into bed when you should be working - just for a short nap. Be sure to set the alarm.

Cook something special to eat.

Go for a walk and take your camera; you will be inspired to take a picture.

Learn meditation – meditation is an excellent tool for de-stressing the mind and body.

Make a list of the things you like doing the most and try to do at least one of them each day. Two if you can.

Learn yoga – yoga is the natural method devised by hermits of ancient India to keep every aspect of the body and mind healthy.

Buy something small that costs almost nothing. Make sure it is something you would normally not buy for yourself.

Introduce exercise into your life – you need not do much.

Buy something small for someone else.

Drink plenty of water. Make a plan – and stick to it – to drink at least two liters of water per day.

Just sit and listen to the noises around you or just listen to the silence.

Write a budget – the first step towards improving finance is to have a budget.

Listen to a piece of music you have wanted to hear.

Decide to do a good thing every day – it gives tremendous satisfaction and it does improve relationships.

Make a list at the end of the day of what you did for yourself.

Make it a point of being positive – say only good things about anyone around you. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

Get up a little bit earlier than you should and feel the luxury of doing things you aren't too rushed to do, or just sit and enjoy the morning instead of rushing to get ready.

Say ‘I love you’ often – make it a point to say these 3 exceptional words to all those whom you love as often as you can. They mean a lot.

Give something to someone - something you would not normally do. A smile, encouragement, or a gift.

Give a hug often – hugging, touching, smiling are ways to say ‘I love you’ that benefit both the giver and the receiver.

Decide that you are going to do something that you want to do and without any excuses, take the first step. It will be the start of something new and special in your life.

And do not forget to make that list. And, by the way, every so often, take a look at your list.

Last but not least, love yourself!!
