It doesn’t have to cost much. Go for a drive, or a long walk. Re-explore your neighborhood. Take some head space clearing time just for you. Relax. Sometimes telling myself it’s a vacation day makes me feel more at ease .

20 tips to begin the journey to a happier you

1. Exercise.

It doesn’t have to be complicated. Open the door and go for a walk. If you aren’t much into exercising, go slow. Start with a ten minute walk everyday. Each week add 5-10 minutes to that time. Walking is a great stress reducing exercise that strengthens your core and is good for your heart and circulation.
(If you have heart or major health issues check with your doctor before beginning).

Drink more water

Bonneau Chiropractic

“The most common cause of fatigue is dehydration,” Kotsopoulos says. Why? “If there is not enough fluid in your body, blood volume can drop; as a result, your body (and heart) must work harder in order to supply your cells with oxygen and nutrients.”
Dehydration can cause everything from mental fogginess, impaired short-term memory, dizziness, and fatigue, she says. Be sure to hydrate all day long but especially when you start to feel fatigue coming on to help combat low energy.
