3. Say a prayer and be thankful.

"It is so easy to get consumed by the daily grind of life that we forget to give thanks."



4. Journal.

"It isn’t too late to start journaling and write down your goals and dreams for yourself. This will give you an indication of what you want and what you don’t want in your life and help you get to where you need to be."
