10 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Life

Love Yourself.

Natasha Trivedi

Sometimes, life can bring people down a little. Don't sweat it, it happens to the best of us. Even though we can't control the universe, we can all make little changes to improve ourselves and our moods. Here are some little things that will change your life for the better.

1. Have healthy habits.

This may seem irrelevant, but taking care of yourself helps you feel better in so many ways, and being healthy will make your life longer and better. You will physically and mentally feel better, and your body will thank you for that. the more you take care of yourself, the more you'll want to do it.

2. Surround yourself with positive people.

Don't hang around people who bring you down. It's not always easy to cut them out, but in the long run, it is beneficial and will make you so much happier. Having true friends who make you feel better about yourself will not only make your life much easier, but you will be so much more happier.

3. Focus on yourself instead of others.

Yes, Having people who love you is an amazing feeling. However, your opinion of yourself is the most important. So, instead of worrying about what others think, pay attention to what YOU think.

4. Have a daily routine.

This will make you more efficient, as well as more focused on the things that really do matter, like getting important work done.

5. Make time for your loved ones.

Besides yourself, your family and close friends are the ones who love you the most. Love them back and never forget that they will always be there for you.

6. Engage in activities that you love.

This is a simple concept- don't do things that don't make you happy. Of course, sometimes you might not have a choice, but when you do, only do what you love.

7. Don't compare yourself to others.

You've probably heard this several times, but it's a universal truth. Stop comparing your bloopers reel to others' highlights.

8. Make time to relax.

If you don't, you will without a doubt stress yourself out and give yourself unnecessary problems. Avoid this by giving yourself some "you time", which brings me to my next point.

9. Give yourself a good pampering.

This will not only provide you with comfort but also with an escape from reality. Whether it's physical or mental pampering, whatever makes you feel better works.

10. Love yourself.

You are beautiful, funny, smart, kind, and exciting. Love yourself with every bone in your body, and that love will exude and and take in happiness into your life.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
