Life can get so busy and hectic that people often forget the little things that they should be doing each and every day. Here are five things that people should take the time to do every day.

1. Tell People you Love Them

Life is too short to hold grudges and waste time being mad at people. With that being said, it is important to let the important people in your life know that you love them. No one should have to spend a single day of their life not knowing whether or not they are loved. There should not be a single day in your life that slips by without telling people that you love them because you never know what could happen. The next time you tell someone that you love them could be the last time, so make it count, and don't live a day regretting something something you didn't say.

2. Take Time for Yourself

The most important person in your life is you. It is important to care about yourself and take time for yourself more than anyone else in your life. Some people get so wrapped up in trying to care for others and be there for others that they forget to take time for themselves. It is extremely important to remember to take time for yourself and to take care of yourself because if you can't take care of yourself, then you can't take care of others.

3. Smile

It is easy to get upset by the little things in life. Most of the things that upset us now will not matter later on down the road. If we waste time being upset and not finding happiness in life, then we will never be happy. It is important to enjoy life each day and be happy in order to get the most out of life. Life is too short to not be happy and grateful each and every day.

4. Do Something for a Stranger

Many people tend to only focus on their friends and the people that matter to them in their own lives. It is common for people to forget strangers and the people that we are not close to. However, strangers are sometimes the most important people in the lives of others. You never know the impact you can have on a stranger. Simple gestures go a long way, and by doing something to impact a stranger's life to make it better could impact your own life as well.

5. Take a Chance

As cliche as it may sound, life is short. It is important to take chances and make the most out of each and every day. Do something that you would not normally do, take a chance, You don't want to spend your life regretting the chances you didn't take. You never know, you might learn something. Step outside your comfort zone each and every day because the only thing you should regret is the chances you didn't take. As Scott Spencer said, “The only things I regret, and the only things I'll ever regret are things I didn't do. In the end, that's what we mourn. The paths we didn't take. The people we didn't touch.”
