    I'm so happy that complain less is your number one!

    I totally agree about complaining less. It's exhausting whether you're the complainer or the one listening to someone else complain. Such a downer and who has time for it!? I also agree about giving compliments. It's one of the easiest ways to make someone else's day and your day too. I always feel happiest when I'm doing nice things for others.

    Yes to all of these! I am always working on having more time to read (essential!), and the last one is key. Gossiping less is a good goal for me, and staying away from negative things.

    This is a great list!

    Oooh Chic Fil A every meal sounds delish… but not happening! I definitely try to drink more water, and am definitely working on the complaining thing. The more positive I am, the happier I am šŸ™‚

    YAAAS. I need to work on 5 and 6 LOL

    I love your list!!! This is great! Drink more water – YES!

    Definitely goals we all can improve on! I have been working on drinking more water recently and though I don't think I complain a lot I still want to complain less (:

    I really like #8. Good all around list though! thanks for sharing šŸ™‚

    Such a good list!

    Amen to these! I really don't know why people don't drink more water. It's basically the only thing I drink all day long!

    Yes! I loved reading this. I need to remember these things every day.

  16. Anna @ IHOD

    Gosh couldn't agree with you more! These leave room for a more peaceful life with less mental clutter!

    So true. You would think these would be obvious, but we all need reminders sometimes. Love this list.

    Compliments seriously make the world go round. So many great things can happen just by complimenting others and being a genuinely kind and thoughtful person. I love giving them and I love receiving them, because they can truly turn a bad day into a great one.

    Yes, compliments can seriously turn a day around. Also, the thing about speaking before you speak, text and tweet is HUGE. I have learned to think about my words before I post anything because one little word can make a difference in what you intend.

    I desperately need to work on #6 more! #5 is my favorite though, I love decluttering.

  21. Kasey At The Bat

    June 10th, 2015 at 1:08 am

    I completely agree! Especially with the water + the reading. I can get lost for days in a good book…

  22. Lindsay Latimer

    June 10th, 2015 at 1:21 am

    Perfect, lady. Complimenting people goes such a long way… It's so amazing how you can chance someone's day just by saying something nice! Everything else on this list is great, too!

    What a great round up! I love the idea that everyone should read more — it always inspires me!

  24. Kati Rose @ Constantly Seeking Wonder

    I think if we all tried to do more of these things we'd all live a bit of a happier life.

    I need to do better with #8!

    June 10th, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    This is a great list, lady!

    #1 is so important!!!

    Absolutely love this list Chelsea!! Apparently I wasn't following you and this whole time I thought I had been. I am so sorry! Anyways, that is fixed. Would you like to swap buttons? I love seeing your comments on my blog and love visiting yours! I would love to share buttons with each other and it would make it even easier on my part to visit you! Let me know what you think girl šŸ™‚

    Amen to this list Chelsea!! It's perfect – I was nodding along with every single one! I think compliments are such a little, easy thing but they make the biggest difference to someone's day! xxx Carly

    This is SO incredibly true.

    I definitely try to complain less (a never ending goal), drink more water, cook more often, etc. Love this.

  30. Karen Peterson

    These are fantastic! You're right. Everyone should have these goals. The world would be a much better place.

    This is the best post ever.

    I love Chick-Fil-A a little too much too… might need to work on that one. But oh man, that spicy chicken sandwich….

  33. Jenna Grace

    June 12th, 2015 at 2:46 pm

    Yes, yes, yes to all of these. How do you manage to put such good thoughts into words?

  34. Kay R.

    June 14th, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    Im with you on enjoying reading. I definitely think everyone should strive to enjoy that!

  35. Emma Julia

    So many yesses to this – I especially need to do no.1 – to the point that I decided to make a complaint jar (in the idea of a swear jar!). No.3 is another definite, but it's hard to gracefully take a compliment and not bat it away by playing the compliment thing down… (this may just be a British thing!)

  36. Chelsea Olivia

    June 15th, 2015 at 8:29 pm

    I basically 100% love and agree with every single thing on this list! I've taken up reading again and am really enjoying it!

  37. Crystal

    June 17th, 2015 at 2:16 am

    Yes! These are all so true! I especially loved #5 and what you said at the end. I used to hold have emotional ties to things and now I'm trying to get over that. Sure, there are some things that still mean a lot, but I'm working on weeding most things out and it feels so good not to have all of these things that I don't use and don't have a place for cluttering up my home.

  38. The Southern Thing

    June 17th, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    I really need to work on #2. Some days drinking half my weight in ounces is such a breeze, and other days it's a chore. I do feel so much better when I do drink a lot though!

  39. Chelsea

    June 18th, 2015 at 2:21 am

    SO love these goals, and I've never heard that quotation at the end… I love it and need to learn to live it!!!! I think I just need to read this post every morning, and I'd for sure be a happier, better person! šŸ™‚

    I can not even express how difficult it is for me to drink water all the time! I struggle with that so much.

  41. Madison @ Wetherills Say I Do

    June 22nd, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    This is so true! I love these tips and really think implementing these will lead to a happier life šŸ™‚ I've always struggled with drinking more water, but thankfully I've been thirstier since being pregnant, which helps me drink more!

    Amen to all of these! Seriously.
