1. Early to bed early to rise.-This a phrase is as old as it gets! Getting up early has its benefits. You get up feeling energized, happy, and enthusiastic and mornings set the tone for the day. You have more willpower to do any exercise or any important work. Also, there is less distraction in the morning as it is quieter than any other time of the day. So you can also make a list of to do tasks and chalk out a plan. Prioritizing will make things easy for you.

Others like to hit the gym and do weights or the treadmill. Any exercise you choose is anyways going to have a good effect on your body. It is a great energy booster, increases happiness levels, reduces the rate of heart diseases naturally and helps to keep your weight in check.

3. Have a healthy meal- This starts with breakfast, you should regularly have iron rich food.

Not consuming enough iron can lead to fatigue and depression. Keep the energy up by including oatmeal, lentils, cereals, nuts, whole grains, and tofu. Also, there are some amazing health drinks which will boost your metabolism and detox your body.

Apple smoothies-Apples is a great ingredient for detoxifying and energizing your body. They reduce the amount of fat your cells can absorb.

Other drinks which help boost metabolism and lose weight are coconut water, black tea, and different kinds of fruit smoothies.

4. Cut out the television time-It is extremely tempting to switch on the television once you are back from work. But watching the television will add more stress to your eyes. Instead, you can sit quietly listening to some soft music, or simply indulge yourself in some hobby. It can be anything from gardening, cooking, reading books, and painting.

5. Exercise at the desk-Can't take out time especially for exercising? Not a major problem. You can always do small exercises at your office desk. They can be simple neck rotation, keeping your eyes closed, or simply putting your head down with eyes closed. You will instantly feel rejuvenated by this small break and will able to do the same work with more zeal.

6. Stay hydrated-This seems to be a simple task but it's not. Why? Because we tend to have our food regularly but not regular intake of water. Set the alarm after every one hour to help you remind that you have to drink water. It removes toxins from the body. It relieves fatigue and is a mood lifter. It also helps to improve your digestion.

7. Stop comparing-Who got a promotion? Who has the best designer dress? Who went on an exotic vacation or celebrated his/her birthday in a 5-star hotel. The list is endless. With social media entering our lives it has become but natural to compare ourselves with others. Now every small update about one's personal life is all over your profile, and you tend to think the obvious. Why does she get everything in life? And why not me? First of all, stop feeling down due to someone's enjoyment. Everyone's life, situation, ambitions, aims are different. You probably have no idea what the other person is facing in real life just because his social media profile has a lot of holiday photos. Count your blessings. Think there are others in this world that face far more serious problems than you do.

8. Nature therapy-Plants are a great mood lifter. You can keep plants in your house, room or in your office space to keep a positive ambiance. They help keep your room decorative but at the same time not being very over the top. But it's difficult to maintain real plants. You can always keep artificial plants at such times. They are easily available in the market. You can keep them as silk floral centerpieces, or beautiful ferns in big flower pots. Fake moss looks extremely artistic if kept with red silk roses or any other decorative item piece.

9. Stay positive-Start the day with full of hope and enthusiasm. Obstacles are an inevitable part of our lives. And they are not going to get solved by worrying or thinking. Instead of face any problem or difficult situation with positivity and hope in your minds. Don't over think and take each thing as it comes. Remember you don't have to carry the entire world's burden on your shoulders.

10. Finally, love yourself- Always keep telling yourself that you are the most amazing person and that you can tackle any responsibility with ease. There will be many out there to make you feel down by saying nasty things, comparing you with others, being unpleasant for no reason at all. Remember such people are themselves in secured about something in their lives and they derive pleasure by discouraging people. Ignore or cut out such people from your lives.
