Activities we perform on daily basis have a huge impact on what we want to achieve in the future. Many inspirational identities like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and so on also stated this. So it’s our responsibility to see what our routine will lead us to a healthy lifestyle.
Habits are behavior and pattern that you showcase by default. Interestingly you follow this routine every day without thinking twice. Also, many good habits to have will enable you to carry out crucial activities like taking a shower, brushing your teeth, and get ready for work.
Your unconscious daily habits create room for your brain to perform more advanced activities like problem-solving and analysis.
So, let’s get started with the activities:-
1. Begin your day with MEDITATION
I recommend mindful meditation early in the morning. This practice helps you to place yourself in the present moment. Consequently, it enables you to be mindful of challenging situations during the day.
Different stressors may trigger as you go through the day; meditation helps you to remain calm before taking on the challenges.
2. Get out in NATURE
You probably seriously underestimate how important this is. (Actually, there’s research that says you do.) Being in nature reduces stress, makes you more creative, improves your memory, and may even make you a better person.
One of the good habits to have is to exercise your body and muscles on a daily basis. You don’t have to run a marathon or lift tons of weights. You only need to engage in activities that oxygenate your blood and inject endorphins into your body, trying to squeeze in at least 15 minutes every day.
Exercise makes you smarter, happier, improves sleep, increases libido, and makes you feel better about your body. A Harvard study that has tracked a group of men for more than 70 years identified it as one of the secrets to a good life.
4. Spend time with FRIENDS and FAMILY
Harvard happiness expert Daniel Gilbert identified this as one of the biggest sources of happiness in our lives. Relationships are worth more than you think (approximately an extra $131,232 a year.) Not feeling socially connected can make you stupider and kill you. Loneliness can lead to heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. The longest-lived people on the planet all place a strong emphasis on social engagement and good relationships are more important to a long life than even exercise. Friends are key to improving your life. Share good news and enthusiastically respond when others share the good news with you to improve your relationships.
5. Be GRATEFUL for what you have
Gratitude is a time-tested pathway to success, health, and happiness. It redirects your focus to what you have from what you lack. Try writing a list of things you’re grateful for each day in a gratitude journal, or make it a habit to say one thing you’re grateful for when you sit down to dinner with your family.
It’s not uncommon to waste time thinking of what’s not enough. You become immersed in those daunting challenges. However, challenges justify the presence of hope. The only strategy you have to stop focusing on your problems is to focus on what you have.
6. Manage your time and set out DAILY GOALS with intensions
Another good habit is the act of managing your time effectively. This goes a long way toward impacting your achievement.
Time management is what separates the successful from the rest of the world, as we all possess the same amount of time. How you leverage time determines your potential to succeed in life.
Everyone has goals, whether they relate to business or their personal life. The truth is that we’re all tending towards a particular direction. Nevertheless, while long-term goals can offer you direction, it’s your daily goals that help you develop short-term goals that are essential for your success.
Long-term goals may not give you the motivation you need to keep on, but when you implement your short-term milestones daily, you become fired up, and you can overcome the challenges that come with taking on bigger tasks.
Here’s the main truth: Successful people don’t set goals without establishing their intentions.
7. Eat Healthy
Only exercising will not help in building good health and active reflexes. Having a good diet ultimately results in an active fast-thinking brain as well as good reflexes.

8. Get enough SLEEP
You can’t cheat yourself on sleep and not have it affect you. Being tired actually makes it harder to be happy. Lack of sleep = more likely to get sick. “Sleeping on it” does improve decision-making. Lack of sleep can make you more likely to behave unethically. There is such a thing as beauty sleep.
Naps are great too. Naps increase alertness and performance on the job, enhance learning ability and purge negative emotions while enhancing positive ones.
