Drink 8 cups of water daily

Staying hydrated can improve your brain performance, skin, mood, and digestive health. Here are our tips for getting into a hydrating habit:

  • Flavor your water
  • Drink one glass of water before each meal
  • Start your day by flushing your system and drink one full glass of water before breakfast
  • Get a smartwater bottle to remind you when and how much water to drink throughout the day

Check in with a friend

Connecting with your pals is a great way to boost your day and your mood. Reach out with a quick text and stay in the loop with the people that make life better.

  • Share a funny meme or post
  • Tell someone your thinking of them
  • Share a "congrats" on a promotion or life change
  • Send a "I miss you, let's catch up soon" text

Take a 5 minute breather

Your physical and emotional wellbeing go hand-in-hand. Take five minutes in a quiet area to relax your mind and body. Give this a try:

  • Breathe in and out slowly
  • Inhale very slowly through your nose for five seconds: 1-2-3-4-5
  • Exhale very slowly through your nose or mouth for five seconds: 1-2-3-4-5
  • Wait for five seconds: 1-2-3-4-5
  • Repeat these steps as needed
  • How do you feel?

Get in your gratitude

With the stresses of everyday life, we can forget to acknowledge the parts of our day that are going right. Take a few moments to reflect on five things you're grateful for—studies show gratitude can give your day a health boost. Here are some things to consider:

  • Your children, family or friends
  • Your job at Costco (of course!)
  • Your delicious breakfast or morning coffee
  • Memories of places you've been or things you've done
