Life is passing by and day by day we are losing millions of moments. We justify that we are busy and our job is more important than anything else. But in reality we are missing out on precious moments, moments so precious that they define living.
Don’t allow your years to become a blur with all of that running around. Stop for a moment and breathe in, life is in fact beautiful. Today we list 6 very easy tips that will lead you to live a fuller and more satisfying life.

Your twitter has not cooked your food neither Instagram has brought it to your table. Leave your phone and appreciate the food for once. And there is nothing more arrogant and ignorant than talking to a person while staring at your phone.
Make a rule in your life to switch yourself off digitally daily for some time. Easiest way is not to look at your phone while eating and switch it off (or silent it) an hour before going to bed. Listen to music, go for a walk or read a book.

2. Cook Something
Food is something that touches us physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is one of our primal needs and we are automatically drawn towards it. It also strengthens our relationships etching some memorable events in our lives. Tell me, don’t you love your mama’s Mac and cheese?
Cooking is a great stress buster. So we highly recommend that go ahead cook something that you like. Cook something familiar on the days you want warmth and cook something new when you are feeling adventurous.
To our friends who don’t like cooking we recommend to give it a try once. The instant gratification you will get after creating something tasty is best experienced once.

With every form of entertainment coming to our homes we are becoming like bunnies, always trying to hide in our burrows. Food is delivered at home, Netflix is there and with Wifi around we feel we don’t need anyone else. WRONG
We are humans we need human interaction. We need to talk to other people, observe them, feel them, hear them and absorb the world. Go out and meet new people and interact with the world. Trust us you will feel happy about that decision.

This one is something we recommend to everyone. Join a book club, a community activity, movie club, foodies club whatever that interests you. When you have a fixed event every month there is always something to look forward to. Plus you get to meet like minded people and a chance to make new bonds.
