100 Ways to Make the World a Better Place (Baby Steps)

To acknowledge my 100th post, what has happened this year and what is happening currently, today I have 100 Ways to Make the World a Better Place. These 100 SUGGESTIONS may or may not INDIRECTLY or directly help to make the world a better place. I believe that baby steps are the best way to progress through any task. Also if you work to make yourself better for the world and if everyone does so, then somehow the world will be a better place. So much is going on right now in the world, so much has happened and it is time to change our ways. So with out further ado, 100 Ways to Make the World a Better Place:

  1. Conserve water as much as possible
  2. Have shorter showers
  3. Don’t let the tap run unnecessarily while using water: brushing, washing hands and produce, and more
  4. Do bigger loads of laundry to reduce the amount of loads overall
  5. Use a dishwasher and try to do bigger loads as well
  6. Reduce the usage of your car
  7. Use public transport, walk, bike and all instead of using a car; carpooling helps as well
  8. Conserve electricity and gas as much as possible

  76. If there is something you don’t like, state it and if you can then fix it
  77. If a toxic person has left your life, don’t check up on them or let them back in. They left for a reason
  78. Listen to your emotions:
  79. If you are feeling angry: it shows that you are passionate about the topic of conversation, boundaries and believes
  80. If you are feeling sad: it shows you how deep your feelings are for the reason behind being sad
  81. If you are feeling guilty: it shows you who you don’t want to be, reflect and change the issue

  83. When talking amongst peers try not to dominate the conversation and ensure that all parties of the conversation are included
  84. Avoid overthinking as it may cause stress and stress is not a good response for the human body
  85. Focus on yourself
  86. Avoid getting overly attached to people unless you know that they feel that same way; save you a lot of sad nights
  87. Forgive more
  88. Happiness doesn’t have to involve others, self happiness if more important
  89. Never control or restrict your curiosity
  90. Celebrate your own success by yourself before you celebrate with others; avoid evil eye (nazar) and avoid giving nazar
  91. Be careful with who you celebrate your success with; careful of nazar
  92. Try to live in the moment more than anything (relates to reduce electronics as stated before)
  93. If you fail, take a break and keep going. You are a lot closer than you think you are
  94. Go for walks, hikes and treks to appreciate nature and consume some fresh oxygen
  95. Know the border between giving an ear and helping and solving the problem for them and getting tangled in the middle; speaking from experience
  96. Sometimes pursuing a back up plan before your dream is ideal and needed
  97. Think about what you are going to say before you speak
  98. Learn to love yourself before you love anyone else
