100 ways to slightly improve your life without really trying. Lots of these I’m cool with:
- On the fence about a purchase? Wait 72 hours before you buy it.
- Sharpen your knives.
- Look closely.
- Stretch in the morning. And maybe in the evening.
- Don’t have Twitter on your phone.
- Always have dessert.
- Don’t save things for “best”. Wear them – _enjoy_ them.
- Always book an extra day off after a holiday.
- If in doubt, add cheese.
(#42 should really be “don’t have any social media apps on your phone”.)
Some, I want to try doing more often…
- Eat meat once a week, max. Ideally less.
- Drop your shoulders.
- Listen to the albums you loved as a teenager.
…but I’m calling bullshit on this one:
- Don’t be weird about how to stack the dishwasher.
You can pry my OCD dishwasher tendencies from my cold, dead fingers.
And finally, as much as I love the idea, I’m not sure that this one is accurate (at least here in the US, maybe in the UK):
- Consider going down to four days a week. It’s likely a disproportionate amount of your fifth day’s work is taxed anyway, so you’ll lose way less than a fifth of your take-home pay.
