    Smile and be kind. By doing this you will radiate a positive wave and attract people. Help others in need, maybe donate some money to charity, do community service like help at homeless shelters, or just be a shoulder to cry on. The people around you will feed on your energy, and will carry it. So if you display a sunny disposition, the people around you will feel good too.

    Exercise. Yoga is a good form of relaxation, meditation and exercise. It's best to take professional lessons as it will keep you motivated. This will probably be most enjoyable in the morning or at the end of the day. Also consider taking pilates which also relaxes your body in a calming, healthy way.

    Have a good night's sleep. That way you wake up feeling fresh and energized. Sleep at least 8 hours a day. Did you know scientists have proved that losing just 20 minutes of sleep can bring down an A+ student to a C? That means less concentration, less energy, and that groggy feeling. That's how much sleep is important to the human body. It's easier to go to sleep early than wake up early, so why not give it a try?

    Don't concentrate on the negative. There will always be something that you can find that will bother/annoy you. You just have to ignore those things or accept that they exist and that's just the way it is. Concentrate on the good things that are happening and don't let yourself get hurt by something someone said or did. Try not to compare yourself to others, as this will only lead to disappointment and the feeling of never being satisfied with your good self.

    Patience. The time for everything will come, just waiting is a little hard to keep. It's natural to be a little impatient, but force yourself to just stop, and calm down and look at what's current. If you can't get out your message, determine if it's Important, then go ahead.

    Behind the scenes. When you know your doing the right things, you may notice 90% of others are annoying, mean, gossiping, etc. So, if you compare yourself to others, sometimes it can feel better to know you're mature, and that there's always someone more fortunate or unfortunate than you.

    Balance. Throughout the day, good and bad things will happen. A day can never be completely good, or bad. Striving to make a day better, doesn't always mean to feel more good, but to adapt to the new and uncomfortable aspects. To have a good day, is to want it better, do what's right, and tip two.
