Do you want to improve your life and become a better person? Of course, who wouldn’t? However, you might not know the best ways to change that are likely to have the maximum impact on your happiness and well-being. The five following life hacks are little, but applying them can enhance your energy, mood, and outlook.

Get up early

If you don’t usually get up early, you’re missing something special. Rise before everyone else, and you’ll experience a sense of peace and calm that’s not present the rest of the day. Also, you’ll get a head start. Early rising gives you the chance to ease into the morning and allow the night’s cobwebs to lift gently. Instead of rushing into everyday tasks, you can create a wise, positive intention to carry forth and set your mind as you wish. You can also begin chores sooner than you would if you got up later, and so complete them earlier, or be more productive.

Stop trying to be understood

Your happiness will increase if you cease wanting others to understand you. Seriously, you might not recognize how much time you spend fretting over whether others ‘get’ you, but it’s probably a lot. Just imagine how much less complicated life would be if you no longer cared if people had a good grasp on what you were thinking and feeling.

The good news is, it’s up to you. You can decide to drop worrying about how people’s perception of you might not match your innermost feelings and just enjoy being you.

Listen to your intuition

How often have you smacked your forehead in disbelief because you didn’t listen to the warning voice in your head and made a mistake? There’s no point saying “I knew that was going to happen” but not taking notice of your intuition the next time it speaks. From now on, respect your inner wisdom, whether it arises from a gut feeling or thought. As a result, you’ll have fewer problems.

Take a break

You live in a busy world where productivity pays, sometimes anyway. For this reason, you fill your days with activity, imagining doing so will be rewarding. Even if you’re only watching the TV or cleaning the kitchen cupboard, you’re doing something. Nonetheless, your activities often don’t make you happy because you’re stressed.

As cheesy as it sounds, stopping to smell the roses really will improve your well-being. When you slow down and do less, your anxiety decreases. You breathe a sigh of relief since pressure lifts.

Get rid of clutter

Declutter your home and your life will follow suit. You’ll think more clearly and be smarter and more positive when you don’t face mounds of junk each day. Walk from room to room, noticing where mess accumulates and consider how to accommodate it better – not by filling a box you never empty, but by putting it away in the right places.

First, though, you might have to create the “right places.” Hang hooks where items that can be hung are piled. Put goods that don’t need to live where they are back where they came from, and add storage containers where they are needed. Plus, schedule time in which to rehouse items that wind up in the wrong places, because, let’s face it, they still will occasionally.

These five little life hacks have the power to transform your well-being, but you have to do them rather than only reading about them. Add them to your routine behaviors until they become habits, and your life will improve.

DIY All-in-One Facial Scrub, Moisturizer, and Cleanser

Taking care of your skin can make a huge impact on your appearance. Moisturizers and facial scrubs are useful when trying to keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. However, many of the products found in stores contain harsh chemicals, dyes, and scents that can cause dryness and irritation. This is also an issue with many facial cleansers and washes.

Harsh ingredients have caused many people to seek out products that use natural ingredients. Unfortunately, finding affordable all-natural products can be a difficult task, as they often cost considerably more than their chemical-daden counterparts. Also, despite high demand, the number of all-natural products on the market is still surprisingly low.

It is easier and cheaper to make your own DIY products. Three steps of your skincare regimen can be combined into one by following this recipe to make DIY all-in-one facial scrub, moisturizer, and cleanser:

  • 2 teaspoons of raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of natural baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of your favorite gentle, natural, liquid facial cleanser
  • 1/4 teaspoon of coconut or olive oil

Combine ingredients in a small resealable container and mix thoroughly. Once combined, the mixture can be kept, sealed, for up to two weeks. This scrub is gentle enough to use every day.

To use, dip two fingers into the mixture and apply it to your face using a circular rubbing motion. Do not rub hard or for excessive lengths of time. Avoid getting the mixture in your eyes. Rinse your face with warm water and pat it dry with a clean towel.

If you have never used a scrub before, you will notice results immediately. Your skin will be softer and smoother. If you are a regular user of scrubs, you will notice how gentle yet effective this one is. Because honey is antibacterial, you may even begin to notice clearer skin after two or more weeks of regular use.
