9 Things to improve your quality of life
1. Keep it simple: Find the simplest solution to problems or tasks
2. Don’t spend too much money: Engage in leisure activities that require little to no money
3. Don’t accumulate too much stuff: You can’t take it with you plus the more “things” you have the more you have to maintain which could lead to complicating your life

5. Do something physical everyday: I’m not talking about working out though that is important. Take advantage of what you can do today. There will be a time when you can’t, and you should approach that day with no regret. Go fishing, take a walk, throw a ball etc

7. Be friendly: If you have to accumulate something, accumulate friends
8. Focus on friends and family: Your happiness is directly related to our relationships with these people.
