We could all feel better about ourselves. Whether we want to feel more accomplished, healthier, and just better, but how can we do that? Here are some small habits you can pick up on the daily, that will make you feel like a better person, overall.
MyDeal Pro Tip:
Sleep in complete darkness. It will improve your quality of sleep, help you wake up on the right side of the bed in the morning and help you work harder throughout the day. Since sleep is such a vital part of our day, keeping it as a priority, and keeping it as high in quality as possible is important. It’s easier to fall asleep and get better quality sleep in an environment that you actually want to sleep in, so keep it dark, screen-free, and make sure you have a super comfy and plush duvet cover from MyDeal to keep you feeling snug.

“If I could recommend one thing that would help anyone and everyone it would be to check out time-restricted eating. Coming from a person who has tried all the diets and nutritional shake programs out there – diets are crap. At least if you think long term. Instead, I’ve adopted a time restricted eating where I make sure to eat and drink within a 9 hour time frame. The rest of the time I allow my body to rest. When the body gets a break from food and metabolism it cleans, maintains and repair (things it cannot do while there is food in the system). Adapting a lifestyle where I give my body 14-16 hours of rest every day has had such a huge impact on my health and wellbeing. I feel lighter, and more aware of what my body is signalling. When I stick to my 9-hour “eating-window” I have so much more energy for working out, my mood is better, my stomach feels under control. Instead of eating by routine I now eat when I am hungry, which before I was always hungry. I also notice that when I eat late at night I wake up feeling more tired than usual which has taught me to eat my last meal two to three hours before I go to bed.” Find out more about Maya Kiusalaas by following her on Facebook and Instagram.
MyDeal Pro Tip:
Stop taking things so seriously. Yes, things can get serious at points, but it doesn’t mean that every now and then, you can’t goof off and enjoy yourself. It’s actually very important to your psychological well being to take a break every now and then, otherwise, you’re going to burn yourself out. So go ahead, be a bit silly, you deserve it.

“When we think of good nutrition, we often think of the positive impacts it has on our physical health, but studies have demonstrated that good nutrition can also have a positive impact on our psychological well being, and can even promote positive self-esteem. Results from a recent study performed on Spanish adolescents found that those who followed a Mediterranean diet tended to have more positive perceptions of their physical and psychological well-being, family relationships and even their school environment, whilst also exhibiting more positive self-esteem. I recommend consuming a Mediterranean-style diet rich in vegetables, fruits, olive oil, nuts, seeds and fish, to support your physical and mental wellbeing.” Find out more about Sante Wellness by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
MyDeal Pro Tip:
Pick up a new hobby. Learning is so important to your brain and your overall health, so why deny yourself of it? Whether it be reading more, volunteering or even gardening, picking up a new hobby or skill can dramatically make you feel better about yourself, and even benefit others. If you volunteer, you’re counteracting your levels of stress, anger and anxiety, not to mention you’re helping out others, giving you that warm little fuzzy feeling. You know the one. Gardening is another great hobby to get yourself into. Once again, it decreases stress and anxiety, as you’re getting your hands dirty and relaxing at the same time. You’re also helping the environment by planting trees, increasing bee productivity (bees are very important; don’t let anyone tell you different), and growing your own healthy food. So get your rake and shovel out of your garden shed from MyDeal, and get hobbying. It’s good for you!
