  1. Buy yourself flowers, they can brighten up the saddest days & moments, & can ease your suffering.
  2. Be realistic with yourself of what you can accomplish in your current circumstance. Do not create extra stress on yourself with unrealistic expectations, especially if you’ve gone through a recent traumatizing or stressful situation. Knowing your limits will eventually help you overcome them, & lead to more current happiness.
  3. Usually, less is more.
  4. Bold lipstick can make you feel more confident, even on the most daunting days.
  5. Do something/anything, instead of being paralyzed by doubt & overthinking. Take that less than perfect job, go on that date with someone you can’t completely see yourself with, or volunteer. It might lead to eye-opening conversations, or even your dream job/guy/city, etc.
  6. Sometimes moving someplace completely new is the answer. A fresh start, but your problems, hurts, & insecurities will follow you. Take time to make peace with your past, but take advantage of a new beginning.
  7. More stuff, money, dates, or more doing will not mask underlying anxiety. Examine what’s underneath your anxiety, and boldly face it. Ask God to help you overcome it, and seek the wise counsel of friends & books.
  8. Not all thoughts are worth paying attention to, sometimes they are junk thoughts. Try not to engage with them & move onto something else.
  9. Take time for solitude, like a walk with your best friend or a furry pal. Look around your scenery and find something beautiful in that moment.
  10. Suffering eventually ends.
  11. Constraints often bred the most creativity.
  12.  Do not let your pride get in the way of telling that person how you feel about them, even if it leads to rejection, at least you will not have any regrets.
  13. Routine it key, it helps you thrive. Create order out of your chaos, even if the most you can do is make your bed in the morning & doing the same thing before bedtime. Routine is especially important for individuals who’ve recently been through trauma or extreme stress.
  14. Buy plants & learn to care for them. They’ll clean your air & the greenery will help you feel more relaxed at home.  
  15. Be realistic of what you do and do not need.
  16. Find something that helps you relax in the evenings- whether it’s making soap, running, cooking, working on a puzzle, or taking a hot bath.
  17. Learn to ask good questions. A good conversationalist is an understated quality.
  18. Create weekly or monthly rituals with your favorite friends or individuals, like monthly wine nights, or weekly cooking nights followed by a tv show. Commit to your community & the most important people in your life.
  19. Examine ways you are self-sabotaging yourself, either by keeping a journal or scheduling time monthly to examine your life choices, mindsets, & biases.  
  20. Build up a support group now, not when tragedy or trauma strikes.
  21. Learn something new, a new sport or painting or language, even if you’ll look silly or bad. It will challenge your brain, and give you new found confidence in yourself.
  22. Celebrate small wins, because big wins are few & far between. Most of life is found in the small moments.
  23. It’s ok to let people go. You cannot force a relationship when either party is not ready for that commitment, or hasn’t fully healed from previous hurts.
  24. Focus on 3s. Three things you can accomplish or add to your routine, it will clarify your focus & simplify your life without making you feel overwhelmed.
  25. Big tragedies or traumas are usually out of your control. Try not to beat yourself up about what happened, but find someone you trust- a friend, a pastor, or a therapist, to talk to. You cannot act like nothing happened, it will hinder opportunities for growth.
  26. When your present circumstance is painful, take time to think about happy moments or accomplishments from the past. It might give you the confidence to continue forward.
  27. Clutter breeds chaos. Simplify your stuff, it’ll help you concentrate, & help you feel less stressed.
  28. If social media is cultivating more jealousy & comparison in yourself, or even anxiety, give yourself a break from it, or disconnect completely. It might lead to greater freedom than you thought possible. The people that care for you most will find ways to connect with you.
