Today we bring to you five of the most useful things that you must do everyday in order to improve your day-to-day life. This won’t radically change your life, but we guarantee it’ll give you the good enough type of everyday life! Here we go!

  1. Exercise. We all know how important this is, but few people do it consistently. Other than health benefits too numerous to mention, exercise makes you smarter, happier, improves sleep, increases libido and makes you feel better about your body.

  2. Spend time with people you love. Harvard happiness expert Daniel Gilbert identified this as one of the biggest sources of happiness in our lives. Relationships are worth more than you think (approximately an extra $131,232 a year.) Not feeling socially connected can make you stupider and kill you. Loneliness can lead to heart attack, stroke and diabetes.

  3. Show gratitude. It will make you happier, improve your relationships, make you a better person, and could make the life of everyone around you slightly better.

  4. Get good sleep. You can’t cheat yourself on sleep and not have it affect you. Being tired actually makes it harder to be happy. Lack of sleep = more likely to get sick. “Sleeping on it” does improve decision making. Lack of sleep can make you more likely to behave unethically.

  5. Touch someone. Touching can reduce stress, improve team performance, and help you be persuasive. Hugs make you happier. Sex may help prevent heart attacks and cancer, improve your immune system and extend your life.

In light of this achievement, the report also expects that Riyadh, Jeddah and Madinah will be listed among the Best Twenty Cities in the World.

Mazrou’ Bin Salah Al-Mazrou’, the Spokesman of the Quality of Life Program highlighted that achieving such a ranking is a true indication of the efforts being exerted in an attempt to maintain social welfare.

“Advancing one place means a lot, as the world is also progressing. We are not alone in the race. The Kingdom has superseded important countries at the global level, like Spain, Italy and South Korea.”

“We’ll exert more efforts to make the Kingdom the pioneering country in terms of quality of life worldwide. This is part of a big movement coming under the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 and other projects launched by the Saudi leadership recently.” He added.
