If you wake up early everyday and have a set routine. Enjoy a cup of water after you wake up to get a little motivation. Take at least ten minutes out of your morning  to exercise. Exercising will help you get motivated and to be more healthier. Take the time to go to the gym maybe three to four times a week. or take a Zumba class, or simply do workouts at home. Personally Zumba is my favorite. It helped relieve stress, it has gave me more motivation to push harder for myself. It's not for everyone , everyone prefers to do what they are comfortable with.

So be the risk taker who knows what may happen.

It doesn't take much to show someone an act of kindness, Even to people who don't like you, always reach out to them and show them kindness. We need more kindness in people instead of so much hatred. Showing that you care can always make some one smile and make their whole day. So if you see someone show them an act of kindness it will make a difference. You will feel good about it too!

9.Accept change

Accepting change may not be easy, but it's worth a try. You never know what the future may hold if you let go of what was and live right here and now. You will be much more happier. Not everything goes as planned,but have to be willing to let go. Don't hold yourself back from all the possibilities. Have faith to keep pushing forward.

There's so much to be thankful for like your children, a roof over your head, the friends you have encountered in your life, a job that pays your bills, music that speaks to you, and many others. Being thankful for what you have will bring you happiness, and less complaining. So many have so little, but they are thankful for what they do get. Show gratitude because you could lose so much.
