Hi there! Its good to be back, I hope you’re doing wonderful. In today’s article, we would discuss 7 daily habits that could change your lifestyle. Most of us set goals and work hard to achieve them but due to whatever circumstances we fail (at first). By the time, we grow up and analyze ourselves and realize the faults weren’t out there, the fault was in our very own self.
Do you know? I set up a lot like literally a lot of goals in my life but I couldn’t achieve all of them, why? simply because of my daily habits. I worked hard, nevertheless the fact but eventually failed, why? because I didn’t work on my daily habits. I wish I could have a time machine and go back and make things right.
By the way, read this article till the end and unleash those 7 daily habits that could change your lifestyle. It doesn’t matter if you’re old enough or if you’re too young for that. Despite anything, try for a sustainable lifestyle that you would appreciate in the future.
Without further a do! Let’s get into it.
7 DAILY HABITS THAT COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFESTYLE
1- DRINK AND EAT HEALTHY
First of all, maintain a healthy routine. It’s way more important. Before you could go out and change the world, make a change in yourself. Avoid eating fast foods such as burgers, pizza, chicken nuggets (even though I can’t live without them). But believe me, eating all of that junk food in vast amounts is destroying your immune system that would eventually lead to a lazy, lethargic lifestyle.
Surely for bigger goals, you should be active and healthy both mentally, physically. You can start a healthy diet by changing just one meal (breakfast). Add some vegetables, fruits, or smoothies and set a high priority to eat them the first thing in the morning. At first, you would not like the taste but eventually, you will be habitual and would never want to eat anything else other than that.
Make sure to have a good quality blender that would keep the texture consistent as well. Treat your body and mind (the first step towards a healthy and bright future).
2- SAY ‘NO’ TO CAFFEINE
You know what? it’s just a myth to drink caffeine and stay active for the whole day. Honestly, caffeine is making you slothful. I used to drink a whole big cup of coffee just for the sake of being active in my life or at my work but I ended up getting more exhausted at the end of the day. The same goes with the tea lovers, drinking tea in the morning is good but getting completely dependent on tea is lunatic.
You don’t need it. Caffeine is a short term fix. While you might feel more focused for a few hours, you’ll also potentially get jittery and have a hard time falling asleep at night. That happened to me all the time.
Instead of spending dollars on coffee try taking a healthy, affordable, and awake daily habit ‘EXERCISE’.
“The hardest choices require the strongest wills” – Thanos
I know, it’s gonna be hard for a beginner to exercise but try to maintain the equilibrium by exercising for at least 3 days consequently. You will feel much energetic, active, and you’d be better at instant decision making. Exercise not only your body but your brain as well. Meditating for 10 minutes before starting your day is really effective for the brain to store new information.
What time should you exercise? Morning or evening? It’s completely up to you. Whether you are comfortable in the morning then do some exercise in the morning or if you’re comfortable in the evening then go for it. It’s your choice. But the main focus is to exercise daily and avoid caffeine. Do some exercise, make it your daily habit, and improve your lifestyle.
4- APPRECIATE EVERYTHING (GRATITUDE)
Your thoughts are the greatest weapon, your mind is the most powerful tool in this world. Thoughts reflect reality, if you think negatively you will attract more negativity. It’s the law of attraction; like attracts like.
Always remember to practice gratitude and appreciate everything in your life. Be thankful, grateful even for the things that happened bad, because those were the things that helped you grow.
Now kindly, take 5 minutes and list down 3 or more things that you’re grateful for. Say it out loud to yourself and hear the words coming out of your mind. Do this daily and appreciate it cause this will change your mind completely. You would know the meaning and true value of the things or people you’re grateful to have.
5- LEARN NEW THINGS
Doing what you do best is good but staying in that trap is unacceptable. Try to learn new things every single day. Do not just sit there and stop because now you’ve got the empire you once dreamt of. Even if you’ve achieved everything in your life there ought to be one thing you might be missing out on. Never stop learning. Learn new things daily.
Try reading books, creating DIY’s, read articles no matter from the newspaper or magazine. If you’re good at something then be a specialist in that field as well.
By the way, you could learn more things with kids. They are the most innocent, clever, and yet underestimated creatures on this earth. Spend some quality time with them and they’ll open your heart, eyes, and mind in a way you could never imagine.
Lastly, if you’re planning to do things then do them right away. Stop procrastinating. Get your stuff done right now. Get your stuff done!
6- SET AT LEAST 3 BIG GOALS
I saw people making big new year resolution to themselves such as “I’m gonna finish 50 books this year”, Sounds good? of course but first, you should plan your day and work on that. If you aren’t reading 10 pages a day how are you going to finish 50 books in a year? If you’re not willing to put in some effort, then how do you expect positive results?
Start prioritizing the things that should be done in a day. List down 3 big goals to be achieved at the end of the day. For instance, I am gonna complete this article first. Then, I’ll read 20 pages of the book “The City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert”, After that, I’ll be making some pasta for my family at dinner.
It’s important to be good at something small then plan for big. You would know the true meaning of your words when you’d be making a big new year resolution. This forces you to prioritize and should help you generate the most productive day possible.
Be happy, and smile. Smiling can make you healthier. It is associated with reduced stress, lower blood pressure, and mood-enhancing hormone levels. You can brighten up someone’s day. Your smile can change the way you talk, the way you explain things to others. It will make you feel blessed, courteous, and competent.
Thank you so much for being so attentive. I hope these 7 daily habits would improve your lifestyle. If you just focus, accept, and work on yourself you can achieve the greatest success.
