Three easy habits for 2019

Tips to improve your well-being without major sacrifices

Happy Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day! That’s right, today (Jan. 17) is the day you can give up on your grandiose plans to save yourself and the planet from certain disaster. Instead, here are three manageable habits you can build upon to live a better life:

1. Get eight hours of sleep. At least most nights. Yes, you can sleep when you’re dead, but if you do it now, you’ll be happier while alive.

2. Redefine your idea of exercise. Build exercise into your day by getting out of the car to walk or bike to your destination.

3. Put down the phone. Quit scrolling and talk to a real person. Unplug and be mindful, even just for a few minutes a day.
