5 Simple Ways to Feel Better

You only get one life.

This is it.

So, make it a priority to take care of yourself.

When you do, you'll feel and be more productive.

It's a win/win!

Here are five simple ways to feel better starting now that require no equipment or expense.

Get 7 to 9 hours of sleep consistently.

Aim to be asleep at the same time every night and up at the same time every morning.

Yes, seven days a week!

This includes weekends, holidays, and vacations.

Your body loves consistency.,

Bonus: once you've done this for a while, your body will fall asleep and wake up on its own without any assistance from technology.

Grounding (Earthing).

I'm not going to go into the science of why this is important here.

Instead, here's the how: go barefoot outside.

This could be on grass, dirt, sand (as in the breach), or in a pond, lake, or ocean.

Bonus: strip down to as few clothes as you can without exposing yourself and lie down. Get as much skin on the ground as you can.

Sunshine.

Our sun has immense power. It lights and warms our planet, helps plants grow, and produces vitamin D in our bodies.

As much as you can, sit out in the sun without sunscreen and soak up the sun's rays.

Bonus: invest in the DMinder app, know when the sun is in the proper spot in the sky in your location, and track how much sun you get.

Fresh air.

When's the last time you went outside and took several breaths of fresh air?

So many people spend hours upon hours inside staring at computer screens. Get outside and breathe in some fresh air.

Bonus: combine getting fresh air with grounding and getting sun!

Silence.

Our world is on 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

It never stops.

So, you should.

While you can do this inside, I highly recommend doing it outside (as you ground, get some sun, and breathe fresh air).

Bonus: be still. Don't think about anything. Don't be on your device. Just be quiet. Enjoy the silence.
