If you do one thing every day that makes you happy, eventually you will create a pattern of behaviors that will lead
you to a lifetime of content. Here are a few things you can do right now to shift your mindset and change your life.

1. Try something new: Get yourself
a “things to do in Miami” guide,
recruit friends and family to join you
on your adventures and snap a picture of
each new experience so you remember how
much fun you had.
2. Call loved ones: Make your drive
home fun and call up someone you
haven’t talked to in a while to catch
up, recant those crazy stories and get your
giggles on. Nothing could be worse that being
stuck in traffic and having Despacito make its
way into your consciousness.
3. Eat your heart out: With Miami
Spice well under way, there are lots of
opportunities to try new and exotic
restaurants. Eat at the bar and spark up a
conversation with random strangers — there’s
nothing like noshing as you network.
Silence, please!: The drilling and
banging of the city’s construction,
the honking horns on the road, and
the chiming sounds of notifications coming
from your phone, it can all get very noisy and
confusing. Take a moment to reconnect to
stillness and find your center. When you’re mind
is calm, your potential skyrockets.
5. Take a bubble bath: So what if you
don’t have any fancy bath bombs to
make bubbles? Fill the tub up and spritz
the water with your favorite perfume or cologne,
maybe sprinkle a little epsom salt in. Ladies,
light a few candles and fill up that wine glass;
gents, fire up a cigar and serve up the scotch.
6. Awake with intention: Beginning
your day with a positive thought can
change not only your day’s perspective
but its entire trajectory! Before you wake up
on the wrong side of the bed, think of 3 things
you’re grateful for. Then set a goal that by the
end of the day you will have counted at least
an additional 10 — you’ll be amazed at how
your day’s pros far outweigh the cons.
7. Rest up: Over-stimulation can lead to
nights of restless sleep, and even vivid
dreams that leave you feeling like you
haven’t slept a wink. Give yourself a curfew
tonight, put the phone on silent and leave it in
another room. As much as you want to think
those bags under your eyes are Prada, they’re not.
