1. Advice


When you’re stuck in the middle of a situation and you’re not too certain about your next move, ask a trusted friend or loved one for advice. It does not come with a price tag and sometimes, simply voicing out your concerns or questions could bring you a long way.


2. Hugs


Every needs a cuddle every now and then. Hugs are absolutely free and its benefits are priceless. They are include reducing stress, combat depression as well as anxiety.


3. Sunshine

4. Kindness


Being kind to another makes the world a better place and most importantly, it does not cost to be kind. Kind words and actions cost nothing. So, never hesitate to lend a helping hand to someone in need or voice out a genuine compliment. Plus, being kind to others also helps to build your emotional resilience.


5. Laughter


This is the best form of medicine! Researchers have found that laughter helps to lower stress and improve your memory. So, never hold back a giggle because it does not only benefit you but other too as it’s contagious!


6. Happy memories


Let’s be honest here, each of us has had times, where we just allow our minds to playback those wonderful memories in your head. This is one of your mind’s greatest indulgence which will never fail to make you happy.


7. Sleep


Going into dreamland goes beyond just banishing those dark circles and boosting your mood. A good amount of sleep will keep your heart, body, weight and mind healthy. So, if you’re feeling a little down, some shut eye might just do the trick.


8. Hope


Hope is a powerful of optimism. Being hopeful creates a positive mood and it influences your state of mind. Hope motivates you, builds your self-confidence and it’s also proven to improve your problem-solving skills. Being hopeful is free. All it takes is your decision to set your mind in believing that there is hope, because there is!



The best things in life are actually free. So, there is no excuse to enjoying life!
