How to develop dailyhabits? As tempting as it is to try and change more than one habit at a time toreach your goals more quickly, the opposite is true. Doing poorly with onehabit will have a domino effect on the habits you’re doing well with. The houseof cards will topple over and the level of discouragement you’ll feel will makeit that much harder to get back on your feet.
Here’s the habit-building process that’s working for me:
Focus on building one habit per month.
Don’t give yourself a deadline: Some daily habits willbe easier to build than others, and it doesn’t matterhow long it takes to build the habit, as long as you build it.
Commit fully and don’t back down.
Go easy on yourself if you stumble. Instead of getting angry with yourself, useit as a learning experience. Figure out what caused you to stumble, deal withany external influences causing you problems, and try again.
Each time you hit a milestone—one week, one month, sixmonths, etc.—reward yourself in some way. How iscompletely up to you.
Once you’re able to complete the habit without havingto think about it, it’s time to move onto establishingyour next habit.
Here are daily habits that will make an immediate difference in your lifestyleand help you reach your goals sans Xanax prescription:
I used to find it hard to fall asleep until I began visualizing how I wantedthe next day to go. Instead of my mind wandering from topic to topic, focusingon what “might” go wrong, Istarted focusing on what “would” go right. If you not only list in your mind what you’re going to do the next day but visualize yourself doing it, thismatter-of-fact planning process helps keep uncertainty at bay (and the next daygoes much smoother!).
2. Define Your Priorities
One of the big reasons why you’re not reaching yourgoals is likely to do with how much you have on your plate, professionally andpersonally. It’s likely you’retrying to do too many things at the same time. Ask yourself: what are yourultimate goals? Once you’ve defined them, dropeverything that doesn’t cater to them. You can alwayscome back to these things later, after you’veestablished what’s most important to you.
3. Get Up Earlier
I now get all of my important work done before everyone else is even awake—you would not believe the difference this makes! There’s no better feeling than knowing no matter what happens for the restof the day, you’ve accomplished what you set out to.Bring on the interruptions and distractions; you’ll bearmed and ready!
4. Create a Morning Routine
Wake up and do the same things in the same order before you start your day:have a glass of water, exercise, read, etc. Do things that you normally don’t have time for that make you happy. Easing into your day instead ofrushing to get started not only depletes your stress level significantly, butputs you in a proactive frame of mind for the remainder of the day.
5. Drink Water
Having a glass of water first thing in the morning helps rid your body oftoxins that have been stored overnight. Not only does it aid your digestivetract, it also boosts your metabolism, helping you feel energized sooner.
Only 2% of the world’s population can successfullymultitask. The rest of us posers are serial-tasking: flitting from one task toanother, nudging ourselves forward with each instead of focusing on one at atime. I broke this habit by choosing one item on my to-do list, then hiding itin a drawer until I was done. It’s a tough habit tobreak, but once you do your mind feels clearer, you feel less restless, and thequality of your work skyrockets across the board.
7. Go Minimal
External clutter leads to mental clutter. Do a clean sweep of your home and getrid of everything you no longer use or have never used. By the end of my ownclean sweep last year, it looked like I’d been robbed!There’s no better feeling than knowing you actuallyneed and use everything you’re surrounded by. Bonus:you also save time by not having as much to clean!
8. Set Online Boundaries
It’s too easy to get sucked into an online world ofstatus updates, memes, list posts, and videos. Before you know it, over halfyour day is gone and you have nothing to show for it. This is especiallydifficult for those of us who work on the Internet. One of the best dailyhabits I’ve established is not checking my e-mail orsocial media accounts first thing in the morning. Create specific windows oftime for your online tasks. It’s okay to check youre-mail periodically in case you receive urgent requests from your boss orco-workers, but if you check and there aren’t any,abort and get back to your day.
9. Create an Evening Routine
Your evening routine is just as important as your morning routine, as itprepares your body for a solid night’s sleep. Create arelaxing routine that starts about an hour before you go to bed, and use it asyour body’s “signal” that it’s time to go to sleep.
