Appreciate the little things and the big things. Appreciate what’s around you and everything about yourself. The world is full of goodness, and it’s always a good time to appreciate.

4. Give.

There is always something you will need, so why should you always take? What if you changed at least some of those moments of taking to moments of giving? Take some time to put a smile on someone else’s face by giving instead of taking.

5. Smile.
