Ways to enhance your life that take less than 5 minutes a day:
Clear your head, take a few deep breaths and stop to centre yourself, if only for 2 or 3 minutes. This will give you more energy during the day. It’s a good investment!
Stop to watch a sunset
How many times have you been driving and glanced at a sunset and thought “Wow, nice sunset”? This time, stop somewhere and take 5 minutes to enjoy the beauty and magic of a sunset. Even better if it is with someone you love.
Write a thank you note
Show someone you are grateful for something they have done for you by writing a thank you note. This will not only make you feel good and appreciate the wonderful people in your life, but it will certainly make someone’s day to receive it.
Use some creative visualisation
Imagine something you want and what it would feel like to have it. Take a few minutes each day to actually visualise your life and how different it would be. You will naturally start to progress towards this goal by visualising you have already achieved it or already have it.
Spend a few minutes every evening just holding or hugging someone you love
Show them how much you love them by appreciating them.
Even 5 minutes a day can start to make a difference over time. Run on the spot, dance to your favourite song before heading off to work or get off the bus one stop earlier. Fit some exercise into your day and you will feel energised and motivated to take on the world.
Sit by some water
Find a body of water than you can sit by and relax for even 5 minutes a day – if you can be there longer, even better!
How to REALLY live
Every morning, plan your day
When you first wake up, plan how your day is going to go. Decide the attitude you will bring with you - remember, you are stuck with yourself all day!
Do one thing that scares you
If you plan to do one thing that will take you out of your comfort zone every day, you will stretch and challenge yourself more and more.
Have a positive attitude
Yes it is hard. Everything that happens is supposed to happen. Look at the positive aspects of every situation. The Universe is looking out for you, every step of the way.
Let yourself love
Don't stop yourself from loving because you are afraid of losing. Sometimes you have to risk everything to get everything. And sometimes you get nothing back. Let yourself be human, let yourself feel, let yourself get hurt.
Be true to yourself
Live your truth, regardless of the consequences. Sometimes you have to trust that everything just works out.
Enjoy the company of others that make you feel happy and positive. Live every day. Believe in yourself. Trust who you are. Just be.

OK - so what are you waiting for? Now take that leap of faith. Yes, it's going to be hard sometimes. Yes, you can find yourself wondering whether you've done the right thing. It doesn't matter. Have the courage to take a step forward. Remember that most of the magic happens outside of your comfort zone. How do you plan on being brave today?
