However, some people have discovered ways to handle some of these day-to-day problems with minimal effort.

Bonus: life tips that go beyond domestic life
- Do chores when you feel angry. Keep to yourself and wash dishes, garden, sweep the floor, etc. Use all that adrenaline toward something that will benefit you instead of doing impulsive stuff.
- Before leaving on vacation, do a deep clean of your living space. The refreshed and renewed feelings from vacation will be prolonged, and help you transition back to your routine with a clear head
- If you are doing something and a young child asks to help, don’t say “no” or “you’re too little.” Find a way to have them help, even if it’s a distraction unrelated to your task, and thank them for helping. This develops positive self-esteem, mindfulness, collaboration, and gratitude.
- As soon as you have a name for your baby, create an email address for them and share it with your family. They will be able to send messages and pictures. It’s going to be the best present for your kid in a few years.
- If you plan on becoming a serious runner and are sedentary, spend a month or 2 walking before getting into running.
- If and when you get painful menstrual cramps, do a wall push-up. This tip was given to me by an ER nurse years ago and it still blows me away how effective this is. We already know that exercise can be helpful for period cramps, but in the moment of a bad cramp, we may not have the energy or ability to just go take a jog
