10 Small Habits That Come Back to Life

Over the years, I have adopted many "positive" habits. To me, a habit is positive when it improves my quality of life. Much has been written about habit formation.

How hard How long will it take? What is the best way to break the habit? How do we adopt new habits?

My experience is that everyone can adapt their own practice. There is one condition though: you need a good reason for making a change (I talk about that depth in this podcast episode).

And in 99% of the cases, the reason for the change comes from personal misery, sorrow, and injury. At one point you could no longer stand your current behavior.

Don't worry about how you change. Focus on what habit you want to form and why.

After a friend of mine recently asked me about my current habits, I decided to share them here - with a brief overview of what habits are good for.

1. Do a full-body workout with weight 3 times a week
There are several benefits to strength training. It protects bone health, muscle mass, keeps you at bay, increases energy levels and prevents injuries.

I've been gaining weight since I was 16. This is the only practice I've been doing for a long time. Like many people who lift weights, I start with a split routine.

That means you build different muscles during each session. With most routines, you are training a specific muscle every week. It turns out that more pressure is needed to get the muscles stronger.

Ideally, you want to train all your muscles 3 times a week. That's why I'm doing a full-body workout. It's simple, practical and it's effective.

2. Set 3-4 daily priorities

This is one of the best productivity strategies. We all know that focus is on our results.

No focus? No results. How do you focus? Limits your options and functions. Elimination is the key.

Be very clear about what you want to achieve every single day, week and year. Make it a habit to focus on what is important on a regular basis.

Every day, work on 3-4 essential (and small) tasks that bring you closer to your weekly and annual goals.

3. Read 60 minutes a day

I got it, you're too busy to read 'or you just don't like to read.

Well, you are not simply calling it that.

Reading is essential for your knowledge. But already you know that. How is this Reading will make you a better thinker and writer?

"But I still don't like to read." Well, many things in life we ​​don't like, but we still do. Instead of telling yourself that you don't like to read, learn to enjoy it by doing it every day.

And like magic, one day, you will love to read.

4. Sleep 7-8 hours at night

I never forsake my sleep for anything. I recently canceled a meeting in the morning because I slept late. Earlier in the day, I was reading a good book that completely consumed me.

After reading it, I started taking notes. It's 2pm before I know it. I had to wake up at seven in the morning to do the meeting.

I canceled the meeting. I'm not going to sleep for 6 hours so when I find out I'm tired all day I can have a meeting.

Some people can perform well with up to 5 hours of sleep. But most of us need more. If you are part of the next group, make sure you get enough sleep. And must be serious about it. If you are not in a position to cancel meetings, etc., sleep early.

5. Walk 30 minutes a day

If you cannot make time for a daily walk, you cannot control your own life. I don't even walk for health reasons. Of course, walking keeps the body moving and good for you.

However, I walk daily because it breaks our worldly life. See, we cannot deny that life is routine. And there is nothing wrong with that.

But when you walk out, you are forced to be one with the world. It enhances your senses. You can go alone or with someone else. You can have a good conversation. Or you can simply enjoy the surrounding space.

6. Follow the intermittent fasting eating pattern

I don't eat anything after dinner. And I skipped breakfast. That means I'm "fast" for 15-16 hours a day.

Occasionally there are some health benefits associated with fasting. But we have to be careful in making claims.

My favorite reason is that it makes me feel and look better. Also, I can eat whatever I want during the day without gaining any weight.

I don't eat junk food I stick to whole foods with high nutritional value. Also, my first meal contains a lot of unsaturated fats and protein. And finally, make sure the calories your body needs to manage (2000 for women, 2500 for men on average) make

7. Be present

We become so focused on our goals that we forget to enjoy the present moment. This is my biggest problem.

I really need to remind myself every single day that I should enjoy right now.

We always wait until we achieve something. "I'll be happy then."

No, if you are always stuck in the future, you will not. Look for a trigger that will bring you back to the present moment.

For example, I recently purchased a new watch. At the same time, I was reading a lot about these spiritual things. Now, every time I look at my watch and say, "How long has it been? Now."

8. Practice kindness and love

We all use our love as a viable resource. It's a lie Love is limitless and never ends. You can give it to your liking.

But your ego prevents you from doing so. You always want something in exchange.

So give it a try. Realize you have unlimited resources. Give your love and kindness some days away. Don't worry about keeping score. You have enough love anyway.

9. Journal or write 30 minutes a day

I need to take my thoughts properly every day. I wrote it down. It helps me focus on the things that matter to me. That's why I made it a habit to the journal.

Even when I'm not writing articles I sit and journal - just for myself. I don’t write for others in my journal. Journaling is also a great tool for becoming a better thinker and person.

10. Save 30% of your income

If you can't save 30%, save 10%. The savings are not how much. It is almost always.

You save up on unnecessary things that you need to do daily or weekly. You don't have to buy a latte every day. You don't need to buy "organic" cashew nuts for $ 10.

Save the little things. They will turn into big necks of cash in a timely manner. Especially if you invest extra cash.

And it's also the secret of these 10 habits. They are all small. And your daily progress seems trivial.

You will only see it come back to life over time. You must stick to these habits until your life gets better.

And when that happens you keep going - not because you need it, but because you want to.
