Life is stressful for sure but there are things you can do right now that takes zero effort! I’m also 40 if that means anything. Battling my own demons too. 1. Only drink water, lots of it, no juice or soda. Drink a full glass before you eat. 2. Wear your best clothes everyday. you will look more confident. Dress what you want to become. You will gain confidence from positive affirmation. 3. Groom yourself. Go to Chinatown for a $10 haircut. 4. Eat less than 2000 calories a day. 2 meals. Eat one meal at 11am and another at 6pm. No processed foods, pizzas etc. Home prepared foods preferable cos less butter, salt and sugar. 5. Reduce clutter. Throw or recycle one thing you don’t need every day or every trash day. 6. Do 20 push-ups a day. Run around the block. Weigh yourself everyday to motivate yourself. 7. No electronics in your bedroom. If you absolutely have to, turn off blue filter/night mode/True Tone. 8. Meditate 5-10mins a day. Look for gratitude in life. 9. Find affirmation. Join a group. Read. Watch positive YouTube vids. 10. Try a job that is outside your field especially if it is in a positive environment. Libraries, music schools, community centers etc. these lead to other things.
