Having goals is probably the first thing that pushes us to take action.. but sometimes, having goals is depressing and exciting at the same time. However, creating daily habits automatically creates a ‘foundation’ of your life — So, do you wanna be a famous blogger?Maybe an astronaut? – It’s possible. Everything is possible.
Daily habits are something natural and they are supposed to stay that way. Don’t try to change everything in one day because you only set yourself up for failure. Doing poorly at one habit will have a bad effect on the ones you do good at.
What you can do is:
- Focus on building a habit per month
- Take it easy, nobody is perfect at something. We all fall of track once in a while.
- Reward yourself every time you hit a milestone
Once the habit becomes natural and instinctive, you can focus on building a new one 🙂
Here are a couple of habits that can influence your life in a good way.
# Get up earlier
This gives me such a good feeling. I mean, I usually wake up at around 7AM and start doing whatever I have planned to — editing, emails. After you’re done doing the work, you are feeling great about yourself because you know that the rest of the day is 100% yours and whatever happens, you’ve done what you planned to do.
# Create a morning routine
Ever heard or felt like that the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day? That’s true. Rushing into starting the day only makes you stressed or uncomfortable. Get up earlier and start doing the things that make you feel good about yourself, in a calm way — Exercise, check your social media accounts, drink coffee etc.
# Know your priorities
Seriously, sometimes we have so many things on our plates and that only makes us do more things at the same time – and in most of the cases, that’s what setting ourselves up for failure. Let’s just set our ‘official’ goals now and drop everything that doesn’t support those — you can come back to whatever you were doing after you have established what’s most important for you.
# Exercise more
Exercising produces the ‘happy hormone’ aka the endorphins thus resulting in a healthier and happier version of yourself — and usually when that happens, you also start to feel more inspired and motivated to work towards achieving your goals.
# Write a journal
We tend to overestimate the problems we encounter over the course of the day — writing everything down makes you realize how small the problem is. Writing everything down works on the other way as well, writing down your goals makes you feel some type of way that inspires and motivates you.
# Be yourself
Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Express your thoughts the way the are and people will love that. You’ve got a different point of view?! So what! That’s a blessing! Speaking your thoughts the way they are can be a challenge at first, but it’s worthy. My thoughts before saying something that’s different from what others have said: ‘F**k it, life is too short to act fake’
