Don’t complain, don’t gossip, and don’t judge
Try to eliminate the habit of complaining about life, discussing other people, and judging them.
Analyze what negative nuances you pay attention to during the day and why you react to them that way. This will help to get rid of bad habits quickly.
Ask loved ones to pull you back every time you gossip or complain. You can put on a bracelet or elastic band on your wrist, which will remind you of your desire. Every time you stray from it, put the accessory on your other hand and write down how many times a day you did it. Try to reduce the number of times.
Do not criticize your family and loved ones. If you see their mistakes, try to calm the conversation without nerves and screams. When it becomes a habit, your character will improve. And this will have a huge impact on positive changes in your life.
Laugh more often
Laugh at any convenient occasion. Laughter promotes the production of joy hormones and inhibits the production of stress hormones.
Watch comedy movies more often, funny shows, chat with funny friends, joke more. Soon you will notice how your mood is steadily improving.
A good sleep
Go to bed at the same time. An hour before bedtime, try to relax, refrain from activities, especially active ones.
It would help if you slept in the dark since lighting, even dimmed ones, reduces sleep hormone production. You can use blackout curtains, day/night blinds, or a sleep mask to create darkness.
Devices with a working screen (TVs, smartphones, laptops) are harmful to use before going to bed, as their glow also lowers sleep hormone production. There should be cool and humid air in the room. According to experts, the optimal temperature for sleeping is between 18 and 21 ° C.
There is an interesting life hack for those who cannot sleep for a long time. You need to get out of bed and start reading not very interesting literature in the evening light. Drowsiness should come on very quickly.
Keep a personal notepad

Try to spend as little time on your smartphone as possible. At work, it’s best to put it in a drawer altogether. Do not visit social networks unless necessary. Disable smartphone notifications that come from apps.
Try to limit the use of your devices even when you’re bored. Instead, it’s better to read a book.
