I’ve learned a few life hacks over the years, habits that really have a positive impact on my day.
I also feel more productive when I incorporate them.
These life hacks are free and won’t cost you a penny.
If you have your own day-changing life hacks, why not share them in the comments below?
#1: WAKE UP TO RELAXING MUSIC
The alarm on your phone may be set to pump out your favourite disco track at 5 am, but this life hack requires something a little softer. Find some music that isn’t going to shock you awake.
Once you’ve selected your tunes, use them as your morning alarm. Ideally you have a hi-fi that has a really good quality sound.
I discovered my hi-fi has an alarm feature on it – check yours.
This is an awesome way to wake up and really does set your mood for the day ahead.
I dare you to give it a go.
I’m currently waking up to, The Only Classical Chillout You’ll Ever Need.
(If it’s a work day, set your normal alarm as a backup, just in case it’s too peaceful.)
Everyone tells you to exercise. Plus, you’ve got all those models on Instagram, and in the magazines, showing you how you should look.
Don’t let any of that deter you. Exercise is an amazing life hack because it can improve your mood and energise you for the day ahead.
You don’t have to exercise to lose weight, you can just do it for fun. Like when you were a kid.
The human body prefers movement over stagnation and a simple 20 minute walk could make your day that much better.

#3: MAKE A LIST
You’re either a person who likes structure, or who doesn’t.
Now, if you hate things to be organised, then don’t make a list. It’s all wrong for you.
But if you’re similar to me and like structure, then start making lists. It’s a great way to manage your time to get the most out of your day.
I hate having that nagging feeling at the end of the day, like I’ve forgotten something. A good list fixes that.
It can also help you better understand your goals, as you contemplate them before writing them down.
#4: EAT GARLIC
Garlic is a super food.
I challenge you to do a bit of research and consider what you find. You can scratch the surface with Wikipedia.
I started eating garlic everyday, and it has created a great sense of well-being.
I try to incorporate garlic into most of my meals and found my body feels better for it.
