7. Try something new
Wishing your life were different isn’t going to alter your circumstances—only you can make your life what you want it to be. “If you don’t take action, your situation is not going to change,” says Staples. Start by doing just one thing differently; it can be as simple as trying a new kind of food or finally signing up for a dance class you’ve been meaning to take. Deviating from your routine can help enhance your memory and improve your insight on life.
