Life is short—we never have enough time with the people we love. That’s why it’s important to enhance the quality of your world by your own actions. It just takes little mindset changes here and there to make life a much more rich and enjoyable one. We’ve collected our favorite tips below from a story where an Econ teacher gave his senior students a list of his wisest words. Start the change now, and pass it on, as happiness is contagious.

  1. Smile at everyone you encounter.
  2. Once a month, take a vacation from your cellphone, internet, and TV.
  3. Be honest, take blame, and give credit where it’s due.
  4. Forgive yourself for your mistakes, no matter the size, and move on.
  5. Learn at least one solid joke and know when to say it.
  6. Never cancel plans via text message.
  7. Don’t ever call someone, even family or friend, before or after 9am and 9pm.
  8. Learn how to change a flat tire.
