20 tips for a happier life

I was talking to my friend earlier today and I had one of those moments where something just clicks in your mind and you get a little idea so I had to write a post discussing it! It's a bit different from what I usually post (let me know if you like it) and I want to share with you guys a few tips and hacks I've learned throughout life and certain situations. They're super easy and simple and will definitely improve your day. And yes, I'm aware this is very cheesy and cliché haha but let's get into the tips!

1. drink water. you know it's beyond important and it will save your body and your skin
2. make your bed in the morning. you'll be so happy once you get home tired and have a fluffy bed waiting for you
3. apply lip balm before you go to sleep. trust me, your lips will look like a million dollars later
4. take a little time to do an exercise you enjoy. even if it's 15mins, it counts immensely!
5keep a spare key to your house in your bag. random one but this can be a total lifesaver! 
6. don't postpone things, do it now. if you get it out of the way, you'll have more time to do what you like after :)
7. get to know different cultures. whether it's reading, traveling or going to the theater, knowledge is unpriceable. 
8. don't be afraid to ask for what you want. people aren't going to guess.
9. keep a journal (and a to-do list). try to write frequently and pour your heart out.
10. netflix marathon by yourself on friday night is hella okay. word.

11. learn a new language. it will be fun and you'll love to see the progress.
12. have no-phone days. leave your phone aside for a while and enjoy the place & people around you
13. spend time in nature. our days are so urban-ish and busy that it's amazing to be able to relax and walk barefoot on the beach or go hiking
14. don't over analyze every situation. our minds can be quite tricky when it comes to that. 
15. take a hot bath and drink your tea. allow yourself. if the world is collapsing, okay. but you're not going with it. 
16. there's always two sides to the cookie. don't judge before you know both.
17. makeup is not a necessity. the important thing is for you to be confident and happy with yourself.
18. compliment a stranger. odds are you'll probably make their day and thet'll remember it for weeks!
19. your F on a test doesn't determinate your worth. you don't have to excel in everything and that's completely fine.
20. be open-minded. because afterall, everyone is different and that's the beauty of life.

I'm sorry it turned out so long but I really enjoyed writing it. I think I could go on for another 20 tips but let's keep it at this for now haha. I truly hope I could help you guys a little bit and all the things I listed were carefully thought of and are lovely to keep in mind. Of course, you don't have to do all of them, but give them a shot when you can. Much love,
