The little things that make a big difference!

We’ve often heard that it’s the little things that make a difference and there’s a reason for this – little things add up and turn into big things, big things that really impact your wellbeing. In fact, that’s what change is – several small things that work together to create something that matters.

So, what are the little things worthy of your embrace? Well, that’s up to you. But if you’re looking for a place to start, try the following suggestions:

Drink water: People don’t drink enough water. They opt for coffee, tea, soft drinks, or beer instead. While you don’t need to drink it by the gallons, water is an important element of your health – you are mostly water, after all. The best ways to remind yourself to drink are to drink a glass as soon as you wake up in the morning and carry a water bottle with you throughout the day.

Go for a walk: Walking is easy exercise – you don’t need to be in shape to do it. But it’s not just the exercise factor that’s beneficial. Walking also gives you time to think, unwind, and decompress. It lets you clear your head and that prepares you for the rest of the day.

Go to bed early: Some people are innately night owls, more likely to burn the midnight oil than to wake up at dawn. But going to bed at a prudent time helps assure you get the right amount of sleep each night (between 6 and 8 hours, ideally), and that allows you to get up and get your next day started.

Eat breakfast: Breakfast has a reputation as the most important meal of the day. Science suggests that this might be overinflated as all meals are important. But eating breakfast helps you avoid hunger later on, keeping you focused and away from the office vending machine.

Ask about people: Curiosity may have killed the cat but, with humans, it tends to breed friendships. Asking about people is the best way of igniting a relationship. You don’t need to be intrusive – there is no reason to ask someone about their salary or their bra size – but ask them about themselves. People love those who care.

Get a pet: Studies suggest that owning a pet drastically impacts health and lifespan. Pet owners tend to recover from illness faster, have lower BMIs, and live around seven years longer than people who don’t own animals. Thus, if you don’t have a pet, get one…or get 10 and live forever.
