#69 Eat good food

Even when you feel lazy. Yes, there is a lot to be said for the wondrous mental health benefits of cheeseburgers, but they ultimately lead to a bad mood and a whole lotta gas.

Your body keeps you alive every day without you even asking, so make sure you fuel it with the right stuff. I’m not talking about cutting carbs or counting macros (whatever they are). Just eat what makes you feel good. As much as we all love a greasy takeaway, we also know it makes us feel like crap. And there’s an added bonus – the food that tends to be good for us is usually better for the environment too!

#11 Take a day off every now and then

It’s hard to stay kind when you’re completely overworked.

Do everyone a favour – take a day off. You don’t have to book a weekday. Just make sure one day at the weekend is a no work zone. Odds are, you’ll be incredibly bored. But you’ll feel better for it.

#4 List 5 things you like about a person you hate

Ergh. I know.

The last thing you want to do is think nice thoughts about the person that’s driving you crazy. But being angry hurts you the most.

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”

So sit down. Grab the notebook. Write down five things you like about them (even if it’s just their hair). You’ll feel better, I promise.
