Here are a few that work for me.
· Plan out the day the night before. It’s easy to get off track if you don’t have a plan. Things often don’t go as planned, but at least you can adjust and adapt without losing velocity.
· Read to get inspired and learn. There is so much information that can help you crush your goals or motivate you. The amount of time spent reading can vary, but having a daily reading habit will expand your knowledge and edge you toward your goals.
· Care about your health. What you eat and being active directly impact every area of your life. So use exercise as a tool to reset your mind and gain strength. Make smart food choices to give you the fuel you need.
· Do something each day that challenges you. It could be as small as finishing the laundry or learning a new recipe, but find something every day that makes you expand your horizons and think differently.
· Spend some time doing some self-reflection or meditation. I do mine in the morning while doing some light stretching. It helps you reprogram and provides clarity.
Never underestimate the power of positive habits. Solid daily practices can build up your emotional bank account, like compound interest.
Do you have a positive habit that has impacted your life? I would love to hear all about it in the comment section.
