The thing is, life is tough. There are bills to pay and things to be responsible for and on top of all these, you still have to pretend that life is not showing you pepper. It might seem like everything is just spiralling downwards but there are a few things you can do to help you organise your life better, taking you one step towards getting your shit together.

1. Do random stuff

Like going to an art museum. It might seem like a waste of time and money but art just has a way of putting things in perspective.
