The Best Habits To Implement In Your Life. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be exploring the best habits to implement in your life. Humans think, do and say out of deeply embedded habits. Each habit can be productive or destructive for our long-term personal development, health and well-being. If you think about it, your current life situation and state directly reflect the habits and thought patterns you sustained and acted upon. Without a doubt, habits play a significant role in our lives, as they are a vital part of our behavioural patterns, leading our lives in specific directions.
The Best Habits To Implement In Your Life
A Bad Habit
Breaking up with your bad habits and implementing new, more productive ones is undoubtedly one of the most challenging things. This requires strong willpower and the desire to break the habit of being yourself. As we already mentioned, these habits, even the more toxic ones, feel natural because they are what the brain knows. The quest is to break those patterns and establish new, more productive habits. At first, this may feel unnatural but rest assured, the more you do the unknown, the more it becomes the new known.
Here are some ideas for new habits you can establish to improve your overall quality of life
Besides making you look good naked, exercise can help you perform better in every aspect of your life. Every time you do weighted or aerobic exercise, a flurry of nourishing substances is unleashed, improving the function of your muscles and the brain. These substances include dopamine, serotonin, endorphins and oxytocin, all of which create euphoric states that make you feel more content with everything.
Your well-being results from how you treat your brain and your body. The things you put in your body (food, liquids) play a significant role in all functions of your organism. It is important to remember that there are essential nutrients for the body that we need but can’t produce internally. The essential nutrients are protein and fats, best derived from quality, well-grown animal meat and organs. While animal products should be at the core of your nutrition, you can include servings of vegetables and a carbohydrate source (potatoes, rice, other grains, etc.) in every meal. Besides that, a couple of portions of fruits a day will also provide viable micronutrients, improving your body’s functioning.
Focus on whole foods!
Though very important, exercise and nutrition are not all there is to health. The mental state you’re in the will, to a large extent, determine your perception of each experience. A healthier perception of life means better overall well-being, implying that mental practices can be introduced to your lifestyle, especially if you tend to be more damaging. We spend a lot of our time digging through problems, and while they look negative for the most part, problems help us thrive and improve.
Try and shift your focus and perspective to one that makes you grateful for everything, even your problems. Gratefulness allows you to feel content with what you have instead of feeling the lack of what you don’t have. This natural mental state of abundance will, in turn, put you in a position to utilize it to take action on what needs to be done to have what you want/need.
Here are Five Things I am Grateful For
Be In Solitude
People are social creatures, so many of us are constantly surrounded by people. However, as some philosophical teachings suggest, the most significant breakthroughs come in solitude. This is why you need to meet with yourself, analyze experiences, create a mental map of the future and, last but not least, unwind from our overwhelmingly social world.
Remember, life is not all about goals and achievements.
Sometimes you have to sit back, relax and look at things from a third perspective.
As cheesy as it is, reading is one of the best habits you can implement in your lifestyle. Think about it; people write books when they are at the peak of their creativity and want to share something with someone. Books are the best way to gain knowledge from people that have been through things and also the best way to train the creative/imagining part of your brain (i.e. fiction books).
At your very core, you are a very complex, biological deep-learning machine, which you write the code through your thoughts, emotions and behaviours. For the most part, your daily life is 95% automatic, which is why you should consciously create new and better habits. Recognize and target your bad habits and try to replace them with things that support the work of your body and brain!
I hope you enjoyed that.
