I am so sure you are well aware of the importance of drinking water in your daily life. You might be confused or forget to drink water then there are some apps too, to track your water intake. So use technology for betterment.
What I recommend is lemon+water, for some great results.
Lemon with warm water in empty stomach at morning works best to lose weight and increase metabolism rate. But there are few other benefits too. Lemon juice is also helpful to the cleanliness of the liver( reduce toxins), improve digestion, prevent skin and teeth problems. Don’t be surprised, lemon is a real miracle.
So, just 1 glass of warm water with lemon has a magnificent effect on your health without spending too much time at the gym. Can’t you just start it from today itself to really improve your life?
3. Eat your breakfast
“I am so busy, even I didn’t have my breakfast today. ”
Yes, I have heard it. You might hear or speak like this too.
Skipping breakfast is one of the bad habits you must quit today. Breakfast is actually the most important meal
of the day. Although you might be neglecting it without noticing the great health benefit of having it.
Having a healthy breakfast not only energize your body but brain too. The major health benefit of eating breakfast is you are not overeating in the day so you will keep away yourself from eating junk foods before lunch. Developing a daily healthy habit of eating breakfast is essential today for a healthy life forever.
4. Invest in yourself and have a detox of social media.
In the modern age, we all are just hooked on gadgets so fervently. Right from opening your eyes in the morning to sleep at night, all of us are so lost in our fairy world of social media.
If you keep track of the usage of social media for a day, you will be aghast to find how many hours you are spending after it. Don’t you? I know you might be into such a profession where you can’t stay away with social media but there should be a limit you have to draw.
Rather than making efforts to be like someone on Facebook or Instagram, find some time to invest in yourself.
Let’s develop a new hobby like reading, writing, painting etc instead of wasting your valuable time on social media.
Try to do a social media detox at least for half an hour every day before bedtime. Make a daily habit to switch off your cell phone or put it on silent mode before half an hour to sleep, you really need to do this to improve your life. People who don’t check out their phones before sleep have less anxiety and sleeping disorders.
See the creative you, I am so sure you would be amazed by your talent after developing this daily habit.
5. Exercise or walk for 15 min. daily
We all have one excuse: “ I don’t have time to do exercise”. I can totally understand you but to make a real difference in your life, you just have to find 15 minutes daily. Just 15 Minutes!!!
Daily exercise not only strengthen your body but it also enhances your mental health. You can pick any basic exercise like planking, stretching, push-ups or even a walk for 15 minutes.
You don’t need to pick a hardcore fitness exercise. Just do it at home and you will feel the difference in 15 days only.
Daily exercise or walk create a great discipline in your lifestyle. You will feel healthier and happier after developing this healthy habit. Even science proves that 10-15 minutes of daily exercise can decrease the rate of depression.
How about creating a fit version of yourself? Fit from inside out. This is not an impossible task. Just develop this habit daily like a ritual to really improve your life.
6. Start with small steps
You will find this as a little weird advice. But this actually works well even if you are a professional or stay at home mom.
Start with small. Most of us, unconsciously choose a difficult task to complete first. Maybe fear leads us to do that. But try it for one day, start your day with less difficult tasks.
Try to do 2-3 small and easy tasks first. Surprised? Believe me, this gives you a great sense of accomplishment. Rather spending a lot more time in a difficult or complex task in a start, doing small tasks first consistently boost your confidence to achieve more.
By developing this daily habit, you always stay positive to complete more tasks and lead a more stress-free happy life.
Remember, a small win can be the beginning of great victory. So are you ready to develop this little trick daily habit to improve your life?
7. Write notes
Ok, I have to admit. I forget the little things most of the time and have to get rid of this bad habit of mine. Even I am not good at this, I try hard to make my life more sorted.
I started using sticky notes and apps so I couldn’t forget my children’s school events. Every mom in this universe knows how much these school events are important. To write tasks for my blog and personal life events, I am using free calendar apps to be 100% sure I am not missing out my top priority tasks.
Writing notes for your important task will win half of the battle. Busy schedule or your habit is a concern, writing notes helps you to organize your life better.
Planning is key for a happy life. Planning ahead inevitably keep you in an unstressed position.
Try to plan your day with notes so you will have a more peaceful life. Although I am struggling to develop this daily habit to improve my life, slowly I am doing good.
8. Try to meet at least one positive person
A positive person habitually practices gratitude. He/She is always full of positivity and this kind of person gives you strength and support all the time.
On the other side, a negative person is full of doubts and fears. A negative person will never let you take a brave decision because he/she majorly focuses on bad things in their lives. So it’s important to stay surrounded by positive people.
If you want to be truly happy, try to meet at least one positive person in a day or week to talk about your matters. Find them, I am sure you could find at least one person.
Positive people have one inordinate quality to help others. And you may learn many things and know the value of gratitude in your life. Gratitude always improves your life.
9. Say “I don’t know” Accept your weakness
“There needs a lot of courage to raise a hand in a crowd, but it takes lot more courage to put it down”
We take so many responsibilities in our life just to show others how perfect we are. Actually, you don’t want to let others know that you are not that good enough and you overburden yourself by accepting more tasks in a single day.
You and I all have flaws and we should admit it. To overcome your weaknesses, first, you MUST admit it.
Say NO when You have to.
Don’t take too much work on your hand. Say “I don’t know” when you really don’t. This will remove a great pile of responsibilities you enforced on yourself.
Learn new things but accept your mistakes and limitations. You will surely improve the quality of your life by developing this habit daily.
