Take a tour in the fresh air

Don't forget to spend time outdoors. By now we know how important contact with nature is to feel better. If we live in the city, we do one walk to the park as soon as possible.



Help someone else

Helping others is not only good for those around us but also for ourselves. According to the expert, helping others is a gesture of both altruism and selfishness, a positive selfishness which can only do good to both sides in the game.

Get a new experience

Having new experiences is really important, because, in Dolan's opinion, it helps us to slow down and to find time to devote to something that we may have at heart for some time but that we continue to leave out due to daily commitments.

Finally, we must not forget to try to make our life easier and to think about what makes us really happy in order to change the environment in which we live in this sense, so that we can concretely realize what we dream or that can simply make us feel better.
