The older you get, the more life changes and I’ve realized that resisting changes and refusing to grow just isn’t any fun. At all.
The last two years life has thrown some amazing curveballs at a sistah, but I, for a fact, am not going down without a good fight. I’m willing to do the work needed to improve my lifestyle and I’ve also learned to be unapologetic about it.
So many people are under the impression that you’re not supposed to change. You’re supposed to be the same old person you were and if you do level up, all of a sudden you’re acting brand new. I was constantly told before I left for college, “Don’t change. Be yourself. Don’t get bougie,” in some form or another.
But the thing is, growth does not equate to acting brand new and I want you to understand that just because you want better doesn’t mean you’re trying to be “better than.”
We’re evolving and throughout the process of becoming a grander version of yourself, it’s helpful to ignore the naysayers and it’s even more helpful to have some good tips to make the transition easier.
Therefore, I’ve come up with ninety-ish tips that have helped me ride the tides as a busy mom trying to build a business. My wish is that they are as helpful to you as they have been to me.
Without further delay, let’s get into it…
95 Lifestyle Improvement Tips for Busy Women and Moms
1. Forget motivation — change your thoughts. Here’s the low-down with your thoughts — if you think something over and over, accept it as truth and attach emotion to it, it becomes belief. So, yes, you can find yourself some motivation but nothing will motivate you to do something you don’t believe in. If you want financial freedom and subconsciously you haven’t accepted that you can be financially free, good luck with that motivation to pay off your debt because it won’t help. You need to believe, without a shadow of a doubt, that financial freedom and abundance is already yours.
2. Listen to podcasts. I don’t get to listen to podcasts often, but when my two-year-old forgets that I exist, I can occasionally sneak in one or two good listens. There’s really only one person I listen to and highly recommend. Listen to Redefining Wealth by Patrice Washington. I know she doesn’t know it, but I have a mentor-in-my-head thang going on with her because I find myself gravitating to talk more about life. You know, the whole carefree living thing here at Life and a Budget. Her messages are often confirmation that the shift I’m making here is indeed the direction I should be heading.
3. Meditate. We are always told to pray, but we have to sit down somewhere and get quiet so we can receive an answer to our prayers. Go ahead and catch that…when you catch it make sure you implement it.
4. Create uncomfortable goals. I recently heard someone comment that if your goals aren’t uncomfortable then you aren’t creating big enough goals. Stop settling for what you think you will get and start striving for what you want.
5. Start journaling. My business coach recently put me on to this online journal and I absolutely love it. I can use it on my laptop or use the app on my phone. I like writing random musings and ideas in regular journals, but for habit’s sake, it’s easier if I do a daily journal entry online because I always have access to my phone (even when I’m holding an irritable toddler who would snatch my journal and pen away…us moms have to do what we gotta do to get the job done. Some of you can understand…).
6. Live for experiences and not things. I haven’t always been like this but I prefer experiences over things now. I haven’t asked for Christmas presents in years and trust me, six or seven years ago I would be looking at my husband sideways if he didn’t get me anything for Christmas. Now, I’m perfectly content without having so much. I actually have found that the less you have, the more I have. Some of y’all will catch that gem…
7. Practice better habits. Not only do you need an evolving mindset but you need to create better habits to go along with the new mindset. You need to focus on building one to two habits at a time that are necessary for living the lifestyle you want to live. For example, if you want to get out of debt, you can’t keep using your emergency fund when you’re in a crunch. You would need a consistent savings habit to help you with unexpected expenses.
8. Read one mindset book per month. There is always more to learn and the most affordable way for me to learn it is through reading books. Besides there’s some stat out there about how the wealthy read a whole bunch of books (totally feel free to look that up…I’m rolling with it and accepting it as my truth, lol). Make sure you apply what you read though. You don’t want to just consume information and do nothing with it.
9. Focus on what you want. Not many of us know what we truly want. Yeah, a lot of people know they want to be debt free. Hell, me too. But why? The why behind the reason you want to be debt free is what eludes people. Some of us want to be debt-free so we can help more disadvantaged people who are unable to help themselves. Some of us want to be debt-free so there will always be a parent home with the kids. Others want to be debt-free so they can quit their job and travel the world. Whatever the reason is, focus on that. Don’t focus on what you don’t want because you’ll just get more of it.
10. Affirm yourself. When you start working on getting rid of those limiting beliefs and changing your mindset, you’re going to need to start affirming yourself to get aligned with whatever it is you’re seeking. I’m not going to throw a bunch of cliched affirmations up here because I believe we create the best affirmations for ourselves. Just start them off with the statement — I am. Behind the I am, put whatever you are working towards. Who do you want to be? What do you want to do? What do you want to have? Whatever those things are should follow your I am statement.
11. Practice gratitude. I love this quote, “Thank you is the bridge from where you are now, to the life of your dreams.” – Rhonda Byrne
12. Check your spending accounts daily. If you have a debit card attached to a checking account that you regularly use to make purchases, consider it your spending account. You should check this account daily for transactions and potential discrepancies.
13. Pay your credit card off monthly. The best way to position yourself to pay your credit card off in full each month would be to save in cash for any purchases you plan to make. If you know you’re going on vacation and you’re putting it on your credit card, be sure to have the cash in your savings to back it up. This can apply to purchases big and small.
14. Only buy things you absolutely love. How often do you go to a store and purchase a bunch of random stuff. Then you get home, put it up and forget about it. Well, more than likely you purchased a bunch of stuff that you just liked. If you loved it, you’d use it. So, do yourself a favor and reserve your spending on things that you absolutely love.
15. Earn more money. Sometimes folks don’t have a spending problem, they have an income problem. If that sounds like you, there are plenty of ways to bring in extra income. And even if you don’t have an income problem, it never hurts to have a side-hustle to beef up your savings or help you get out of debt quicker. Check out some of these 90+ ways you can earn more money.
16. Create quarterly financial goals. I don’t know about anyone else but big financial goals make me itch. If I say I’m going to pay off $10,000 in debt this year, I’m more likely to procrastinate. However, if I break that big number down by the quarter, better yet by the month, I’m much more likely to put the pedal to the metal and chip away at my goal. If this sounds like you too, do yourself a favor and break big goals down.
17. Pay yourself first. It doesn’t matter if you have something special to save for or not, you should be paying yourself first from every paycheck. Paying yourself first gives you choices when times get rough. It can mean the difference between going back to work immediately after having a newborn. It could give you the option of taking additional time off to care for an ailing parent. We don’t think about these what-if’s on a daily basis, but paying yourself first keeps you prepared for all these possibilities.
18. Build a buffer in your checking account. Make a habit of leaving an extra $10 to $20 per paycheck in your checking account to build a buffer. A buffer protects you from overdraft fees. Many settle on a buffer of a couple extra hundred bucks. However, we kept adding to our buffer until we had a full month’s expenses in our account. Why? Because this allowed us to never depend on the next paycheck coming in. We are able to pay this month’s bills on last month’s income.
19. Enjoy experiences. If you’re tired of keeping your stuff organized, opt for less stuff and go after experiences. When’s the last time you played that board game as a family anyway? If it’s been more than six-months, dump the board games and look for some free family events or activities you can do together.
20. Hire a money coach. I could use this opportunity to tell you to hire me as a coach, but guess what? I won’t. Why? Honestly, not everyone is ready to work with a coach. When you are ready, you won’t need me or anyone else to push it to you. Instead you will come looking for it. In the event that you ever do, just know I’m here to help:)
21. Pay off debt. Wanna know the quickest way to get wealthy besides investing? Paying off debt. If you have debt, don’t be intimidated by the large numbers. Break down the numbers into bite-sized goals and knock each of them out one by one. Before you know it, you’ll be debt-free.
22. Check your credit score, but don’t obsess over it. Credit is important and I won’t lie and say that it isn’t. There are certain ways you can utilize credit to build wealth, but here’s the truth — most folks ain’t ready for that. They can barely keep a credit score above 700 because they haven’t developed the financial habits that go along with a high credit score. So, I like to encourage folks not to chase the credit score, but to chase those good money habits instead.
23. Automate your savings and fixed expenses. The easiest way to pay yourself first is to automate your savings. It’s easy to build a savings habit when you’re not thinking about it. Use technology to your advantage. The same applies to fixed expenses like mortgages, student loan debt, etc. Automate your bill payments so you don’t have to worry about late fees and you can free up your time to focus on other financial areas of concern.
24. Schedule money dates with your spouse/significant other. Regardless of who handles the finances in your household, both partners need to be kept up to date with your financial progress or lack thereof.
25. Create a meal plan. By planning your meals ahead of time, not only are you being more intentional about what you consume, you’ll actually save money too. Create a meal plan to stay healthy and stack your coins. If you struggle with meal planning, check out $5 Meal Plan (try it for free the 1st month). I’ve used this service and it made my life easier when I was eating a non-vegan diet.
26. Drink more water. Actually, drink a lot of water. I keep a gallon at room temperature in the kitchen and it makes it much easier to guzzle up throughout the day.
27. Stand more. There has been study after study on the ill-effects of sitting all day. If you work at home or in office, make sure you stand up at least every hour or so…more often if you can.
28. Increase your steps. Get a Fitbit…do what you have to do to get those steps in daily.
29. Get some sunlight. You need the vitamin d and getting outside and enjoying the sunlight is an instant mood booster.
30. Eat more plants. Ever since I transitioned into a complete plant-based diet my energy has increased, illnesses have decreased, and I have so much clarity. I’ve seriously never felt better.
31. Keep up with any health-related appointments. Make sure you stay current on all doctors, dental, and eye visits. Believe it or not, preventative treatment coupled with a healthy diet and lifestyle saves you much more money than sickness visits and a bunch of medication.
32. Moisturize your skin. Stop neglecting your skin! Oil, lotion, water, and a plant-based diet does wonders for that skin glow-up. Oh, and don’t forget sunscreen is important too!
33. Get some sleep. This whole idea of hustling over sleep needs to be thrown out the window. It was not designed with me in mind…probably not you either. If you’re tired, you make poor decisions, you get stressed out, and life doesn’t look or feel too glamorous when you fall asleep in your kid’s carline. I know we’re all busy, but self-care is important. And the ultimate act of self-care is simply laying down somewhere and getting some good sleep.
34. Eliminate dairy, period. I know some will tell you to eat as little as possible and I’d say give it up altogether. Especially if you suffer from severe allergies, seem to be sick with a cold all the time, or have skin conditions like eczema. Dairy causes mucus build up and even though I love the heck out of Panera’s broccoli and cheddar soup and can go to town on some mac and cheese, I can say I’m 100 percent better for giving it up!
35. Let it go. If you’re always stressed, sometimes you just gotta ask yourself, “Is it worth it?” Usually, it’s not so just let it go.
36. Research before networking. Create a list of people you already know and a list of people you would like to know. Research things about the people in your like to know list. Learn their goals and aspirations to learn how you can help them. Look at your list of people of who you already to know to see if they can help you make acquaintances with the people in your like to know list. Research ways you can help people who are on your already know list so you can return a favor for helping to make acquaintances with other people.
37. Always be networking. Block off time to network with other people each week. This can be done online, by the phone, or in-person. The goal is to always talk to someone outside of your home, regular circle of friends, or your job at least once a week.
38. Visualize and write down your ideal career. You can’t create goals if you don’t know what you want. Get crystal clear on the career you have and how it can help you afford your ideal lifestyle.
39. Create career goals yearly and break them down into micro-goals. Once you know what your ideal career is, you can create the goals required to help you achieve this career. Once you create your big annual goals, you can break them down by quarter, month, and on a weekly basis.
40. Share your goals with your superior often. If other people don’t know what your goals are, they can’t help you. With some goals, you’ll find that you’ll always need the assistance of someone else. Share your goals with your superior in your performance reviews and let other trusted individuals know what you’re working towards. They may be in a position to help you later down the line.
41. Find professional organizations or meet-ups to join. If you struggle with networking, a good place to start is with local professional organizations or groups with common goals.
42. Keep your LinkedIn profile up to date. And while you’re working on that, keep your resume updated too. Delete activities and jobs that are no longer relevant to your resume and update it with strengths and jobs that will help you get closer to your ideal career.
43. Read a self-development book that will help you create and achieve new career goals.
44. Work on your elevator pitch. Help yourself by memorizing a quick 30-second pitch on your role and responsibilities at work. This way you’ll always have a quick and intriguing response when someone asks, “So, what do you do?”
45. Don’t always eat lunch alone at work. Even if you bring your lunch from home, reach out to different co-workers and ask if you can eat lunch together. This is a great opportunity to share goals with each other and stay current with everyone. Just remember to keep the conversations positive and productive (aka avoid gossiping).
46. Always take a break. Not only should you be feeding yourself in some good company everyday, you also need to take your breaks! This will keep you mentally sharp and prevent burnout.
47. Explore and enjoy free activities in a couple towns over from you. Get out there and explore your nearby neighborhoods. Check free community newspapers, bulletin boards, and Facebook groups for festivals, plays, concerts, and free food events.
48. Read a book with your girlfriends. Create an informal book club. Shana grabs the fruit, Nika grabs the wine, and Starr brings the popcorn, and you can makes dessert (those are my real life friends…hey y’all!) and everyone discusses the trashy novel you all read over the last month. Throw in a couple of self-help books every now and then to balance things out.
49. Speaking of girlfriends, when’s the last time you and your friend carved out a weekend for a girl’s trip? If you can’t remember, go ahead and make that happen. Road trip, girls trip, whatever you want to call it…make it happen.
50. Check Groupon for cheap activities. We scored a painting class once for $25 and used it for a date night. It was fun and definitely something I want to do again.
51. Create an idea box. You should write down all of your ideas even if some of them sound crazy. It’s a good brain exercise and using those muscles often is actually what helps you come up with great ideas in the first place. So what you’ll be a little rusty at first. Start writing your ideas down and throw them in a box. The more you do it, the better you’ll get at it and you never know, you may come up with a million dollar idea someday.
52. Listen to music. I could listen to music all day. I do my best work when I’m listen to good energy music and I’m happiest too. Music is fun so make sure your home is equipped with all the music playing necessities. Life always calls for a good song or two.
53. Give yourself permission to Netflix and chill. Look, I don’t know who came up with this idea that Netflix and chill is a bad thing because it’s not. I’m married, have been for nine years, and sometimes the best way for my husband and I to kick it is to indulge in a lotta Netflix and chill. And I ain’t mad at it…not one bit.
54. Take duckface selfies. I’m serious. It’s quite hilarious. But please don’t post them if you’re over the age of two, kay?
55. Teach yourself how to cook something new. I’m talking about one of those MasterChef recipes you’ve been itching to try.
56. Play this game. It’s so much fun and if you’re not careful, you’ll end up playing for hours trying to figure out how to get out of the rat race. Thank me later.
57. Create a mental or written short to-do list every night of three things you must do around the house each day.
58. When you leave a room, take an item that needs to be put away with you and put it in its proper place. If you do this all day, it becomes second nature and your house will magically become tidy with little effort on your part.
59. Wash and put away dishes every night. I don’t know about you but my day feels complete when I do a final walk-through of the kitchen and the sink and dish rack are completely empty. It helps you start and end your day on the right foot.
60. Sweep your floors. I’ve tried to avoid doing this but with a two-year-old it’s like living with a rat in the house. Crumbs get everywhere. Even in places you didn’t realize crumbs could ever be. Sweeping and vacuuming is a daily must-do to keep your house looking and feeling tidy. And if that’s asking too much, you can always buy one of these.
61. Stay organized. Create a place for everything so you won’t waste time looking for things. This means your bills are not left on the console table but actually put away in the appropriate place so you can find them when it’s time for them to be paid!
62. Get rid of stuff you haven’t used in more than a year. There are many things we have to put away to use on an annual basis, but this rule doesn’t apply to every single thing in your home. It’s safe to bet that if you have clothing you haven’t worn within the last year, you can get rid of it. Same goes for toys, shoes, knick knacks or what have you…
63. Don’t tackle everything in one day. Commit to just one cleaning task a day to avoid overwhelm. If that only involves starting a load of laundry in the washer, so be it. The important thing is that you did something.
64. Keep a family calendar. I keep a huge desk calendar on my fridge so everyone knows everyone’s schedule. Plus, I keep track of our household calendar on my google calendar to avoid any business-related conflicts.
65. Plan for tomorrow. Before you go to sleep, prepare your next day’s clothes, food, and to-do lists.
66. Place your family goals and vision on your fridge or other prominent place. Always have a reminder around to help you remember what you’re working towards. It makes it much easier to say no to any activities or spending that doesn’t align with your family goals and vision.
67. Do the hardest thing first everyday. For me, this usually means calling to make appointments or going grocery shopping. I hate doing both so the earlier I do it, the better. So, identify the one thing that you’re most likely to avoid and get it out of the way. You’ll be happy you did!
68. Create daily themes. If you don’t want to juggle different tasks each day, create a theme. Mondays can be your outdoor work day. Tuesdays can be your cleaning day. Wednesday can be your errand day, etc.
68. Cook dinner together. One of my goals as a parent is to make sure my kids can cook, especially my son. My husband doesn’t know how to cook much and I know how appreciative my son’s future wife will be when she realizes he can rattle some pots and pans in the kitchen. So, we’ll be preparing many meals together.
69. Create shared family goals. This gives the family something to work towards together. Definitely include financial goals so that your kids will learn the value of saving money and creating a budget so they can enjoy worthwhile experiences and own things.
70. Read a book aloud as a family. Make sure it’s something good because this can easily turn into a very boring chore. When I was a kid I loved reading books that had a movie to go along with them. Try reading something like the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. As a reward for reading the entire book as a family your family can enjoy pizza and the movie.
71. Grow your own food. This is another thing on my to-do list as a family. I’m determined to be like Jody’s mama (I know some of you may be lost on that one…here you go) and have a garden in the backyard so I can sit in a special area with my tomatoes and a glass of wine. And since my children are not going to be living in my house and not contributing, they will help me grow this garden. Husband too. But I will be the only one allowed to sit in my special area with my glass, just so we’re clear…
72. Check your local library for free events. Libraries have free workshops, free kid events, free classes ― all kinds of good stuff. Check out your library’s website and put a few activities on your calendar this month that you can do together as a family.
73. Create a chore chart. There is no reason that one individual has to do everything in a household when there are multiple people living there. Kids can learn how to clean up after themselves at an early age. Create a chore chart to rotate activities between siblings and take some things off your plate.
74. Create a morning to-do list for your kids. Do your kids have a habit of doing absolutely nothing before school? You know, like waking up, grabbing a bowl of cereal, and heading straight to the television? See, nah…my daughter is almost eight and she is always the first one up in the house (I’m not about that life). Since she is naturally an early riser, her father has a list of things that she needs to get done every morning. If you’re up that early in the morning, you might as well be productive. Keep it simple and age appropriate.
75. Keep a well-stocked arsenal of easy to consume snacks. Since going completely vegan, snack ideas have changed a bit, so I keep plenty of fresh fruit. My two year old is a pro at grabbing his own Cuties orange from the fridge and peeling it himself. Makes my life easier.
76. Never buy just one toothbrush for kids. Why do they lose stuff? My son goes through more toothbrushes than anyone in the house. And even if he didn’t, it still saves me a lot of time and money to buy more than one toothbrush at a time because kids get sick. When they get sick they need new toothbrushes. Plus, you’re supposed to switch those suckers out every 30 days anyway. So do yourself a favor and never just buy one toothbrush.
77. Create a master meal plan. I know I mentioned earlier that you should create a meal plan, but what’s a master meal plan? A master meal plan is a list of meals your family loves that you can use over and over and over again. Create two master meal plans that includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you don’t want to meal plan every week, just rotate the two master meal plans. Easy peasy, right?
78. Create a morning and evening ritual just for you. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, but it should be something that you look forward to doing. It can be journaling, meditating, reading, lighting a candle, taking a hot bubble bath, etc.
79. Listen more and talk less. Build your intuition through observing more and speaking less. I’ve been doing this and I’m learning a lot about myself and my surroundings.
80. Put your phone away. I don’t need to explain this one, do I? Basically, we as a society have our phones attached to us like they are a body part. Seems like you can’t live life without a phone these days (and I totally can’t, I’d go crazy), but at least leave it in another room a couple times of day and be present in life (I get lot more done this way too).
81. Do a clean-sweep of your social media feeds. Facebook has totally started to rattle my nerves in the past few months. So much so that I haven’t posted anything on my personal page in almost two months. Now they are changing the algorithm to show more family and friend’s content when I’d just cleaned up my page to unfollow the majority of my family and friends (can’t win for losing on that one). The honest truth is I don’t want to hear folks mumble and complain about their lives everyday. I don’t need that kind of negativity so I don’t follow it. Neither should you.
82. Go social media free on the weekends. Which leads me to this…go social media free on the weekends in addition to cleaning up your social media feeds. Social media makes me anxious after I’ve been on it too much and a weekend detox is sometimes just what the doctor ordered.
83. Take a course to learn something new. I recently splurged on a $15 course from Udemy. I was skeptical but I went with it anyway and happened to learn something new. Sometimes online courses are a hit or miss, but I never get tired of taking new courses. It feels like a cheaper way to do college.
84. Limit the amount of news you watch. Look, with the way things are going I protect my peace by taking my news in small doses. I’ve unfollowed most major news on social media and I limit my google news scrolling too.
85. Don’t compare yourself to other people. To be completely honest, most people are just out here trying to live life the best way they can. Stop comparing yourself to people who undercover ain’t got their stuff together any better than you.
86. Choose happiness instead of waiting on other people to make you happy. I will shout this from the mountaintop — no one is responsible for making you happy! No one can make you happy. Happiness is a choice and if you want it, just claim it.
87. Celebrate other people’s success. Your time is coming. Stop focusing on what you lack because you see other people’s situation being leveled up. You don’t know what someone has been through to get where they are. Many of them have paid the price to get where they are and you’re in the process of stacking your coins so you can pay to play too. Be patient.
88. Don’t be afraid to say what you want. Your spouse isn’t a mind reader. Your co-worker isn’t either. Neither is the boss. If you’re a business owner, neither is your assistant. Make your wants and needs explicitly clear. A few months ago, I realized I had the tendency of not speaking up for what I really wanting and just settled for good enough just to get along. Well, not anymore. As I’ve transitioned into a business owner, I’ve learned that the best way to align my business with my values is to speak up when I don’t like something.
89. Stop apologizing when it’s not necessary. There is such a thing as abusing the word sorry. Some people say they are sorry just to start sentence. For example, “I’m sorry, can you tell me where the bathroom is…I seem to be lost.” Like seriously, what are you sorry for? The correct thing to say would be, “Excuse me, can you tell me where the bathroom is…I seem to be lost.” Don’t be sorry just for the heck of being sorry. You don’t have to apologize for being you. That is unless you’re being a jerk and you need to be sorry (Kanye shrugs).
90. Keep up appearances. Yes, you read that right. Keep up with yourself. Wear something that will make you feel good. Slick those baby hairs down if you want to do it. Put on a little lipgloss or some earrings. Just because you’re busy or you’re a mom wrangling a toddler doesn’t mean you have to neglect yourself (even though you’re tired and tempted as hell to just throw on the holy t-shirt. Trust me, I get it!)
91. Your local school needs you. I never realized how much public schools need help from parents until my daughter started school. From the outside looking in the school’s PTO and PTA appears to be annoying af, but after sitting on the PTO board for a year, I realized that the school is working with limited funds and very little help. Whenever you can, volunteer your time and understand that those school fundraisers really are needed.
92. Be neighborly. If you see your neighbor, give them a nod of the head, a hello, or something. At the very least, know your neighbor’s name.
93. Be known for something good. What I mean by this is that we go to the same grocery stores all the time and the employees usually are the same people. Don’t be the person known for the scowl on their face. There’s one guy who works at my Publix down the street and this dude is happy all day, every day. He’s extremely polite and I’ve seriously never seen him have a bad day. Likewise, another lady that works in Publix always makes conversation with us and knows me as the vegan lady. Point is, I’m known for something and these folks I interact with in my local community are known for something. What are you known for in your community?
94. Mentor the youth. Look, last I heard, these kids were out here doing the Tide Pod laundry detergent challenge. As in putting them in their mouths. Yeah, that kinda challenge. So, yeah…safe to say they need us. Pick one and start immediately. 😫
95. Join a community meetup based on common interest. It could be a neighborhood meetup where you meet with people who live in the same community. Personally, I want to meet up with the Black Vegan Social in my local area since I just discovered it. Whatever interests you, see if there’s a group of like-minded people you can hang with locally.
Let Me Wrap This Up…
Okay, so I know this was a monster post, but I’m seriously just wanting everyone to live their best life. I know I’ll be doing many of the things on this list. The question is whether you’re ready to be about the lifestyle you’ve envisioned or whether you’re just going to keep talking and wishing, and hoping. It’s all up to you. Which of these lifestyle improvement tips do you plan on using? Let me know in the comments…
