This could be mundane things such as watching the sunset or eating your favorite cookie. Doing this daily would improve overall mood, increase self-esteem, and help you sleep better at night.

Do 10-Minute Daily Meditations

Meditation, a practice done by Hindus and Buddhists, is adapted by billions of people worldwide due to its wonderful benefits for the brain and overall well being of a person. Some benefits of meditating include relieving stress, reducing anxiety, and having peace of mind.

To start meditating, make sure you are in a comfortable and quiet space. Begin by closing the eyes, calming the mind, and focusing on the breath. When we meditate, we want to cultivate a sense of awareness and to focus on the present moment.
