We all have our ups and downs in life – life wasn’t meant to be easy, after all. But wouldn’t it be nice if we could only have a bad day every now and then? It sure would make life more enjoyable.
So, here are some simple tips to make everyday life easier. Its true – you really can have more good times than bad and make your life as happy as can be!

#1: Have A Morning & Evening Routine
Solid morning and evening routines will ensure that you start and end the day on a good note so that you can both get through your day with more ease and get a better night’s sleep. In turn, this will make everyday life easier.
What constitutes a good morning and evening routine will vary from person to person, but most people find that starting the day with a period of relaxation (reading a book, sipping coffee) followed by a period of movement (yoga, jogging) is a really good way to make the rest of the day go smoothly. In terms of an evening routine you could try journaling, pampering, Nidra yoga, or anything that helps you relax and ease into sleep are good.
#2: Practice Self-care
Spending at least 30 minutes each day just focusing on your needs is so important. We all lead such busy lives that we can sometimes put our own needs on the backburner. However, taking time out to focus on making yourself feel good should not be negotiable because it will make your life happier, healthier and less stressful.
#3: Get A Day Planner
Having a day planner is a great way to make everyday life easier. These wall planners are a good visual reminder and a great way of ensuring that you are more organised in day-to-day life. When you always know what is coming up next and when, you can better plan your time so that you don’t have to rush anything, which means you’re less likely to get stressed out by various things.
#4: Stop Comparing Yourself To Others
Comparing yourself to others is one of the worst things you can do if you want to live a happy and effortless life. The fact of the matter is, most people only show their best side, so if you are comparing yourself to them, you will never measure up. This means you’ll constantly feel bad about yourself, and you’ll be constantly striving to meet unattainable standards. Stop focusing on what others do and focus on what you can do for yourself and make everyday life easier.
#5: Learn To Say No
Many of us do not find it easy to say no to various requests, but learning to be more assertive and do just that can be transformative. It can give you back your time, reinforce your boundaries and ensure you don’t spend a lot of time and effort on tasks, and people, who you would rather not.
These may seem like pretty simple solutions to make everyday life easier, and they obviously are not the whole answer. However, if you implement them in your life, you will soon find that you are living with more ease than you ever have before. So, why not give them a try … you have nothing to lose!
