How do you want to live your life? Do you want to be around friends and family? Are you determined to achieve financial independence? Do you want to travel the world, learn new things, or become the best at something?
To achieve any of these goals, it’s important to cultivate good habits that make all of this possible. In other words, create your extraordinary life by taking control of your habits today! What follows are 3 habits that will help you build an extraordinary life.
Live a Full Life
Becoming a member of a community will increase your happiness and sense of belonging. Take the time to meet new people and to take up new activities. These habits will help boost your immunity, promote better sleep and increase your lifespan as well. Exercise also has been shown to reduce symptoms of backache, lower risk of obesity, and help with blood sugar regulation among many other benefits. Nutrition is important too; make sure you eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, lean proteins like chicken or fish, whole grains like brown rice or quinoa. Don’t forget water either—it’s essential for our health!
Accept What Can’t be Changed
It’s tempting to dwell on what can’t be changed. This is a simple yet transformative way to focus your thoughts and energy on something more powerful. We must start looking at what we CAN change in order to change our lives.
Next time you notice you’re focusing too much on negativity, take a deep breath and acknowledge that while it may not be possible or helpful to dwell on what you can’t control, there is something else you can do – choose your thoughts and feelings. You are in control of how you think, feel, and react in any given moment – so choose wisely! Remember that the person who doesn’t let outside forces dictate their emotions has the strongest immunity against depression. Living consciously with intent is critical when it comes to maintaining resilience and happiness levels .
Our minds and bodies need balance in order to maintain a healthy state. Developing good habits can provide us with structure and discipline as well as cultivating positive attitudes towards life. Maintaining awareness of how each habit affects our mental health is key in continuing to cultivate good habits throughout the year.
Focusing on what brings us joy will help us maintain immunity against depression (a common cause of low motivation). Once we have found a few things that make us happy, create space for them by carving out time every day or week to work towards goals related to these things.
Focus on the Positive
Start by prioritizing your well-being. Your body and mind are the vehicles that will take you to a long lifespan of fitness and happiness, so it’s important to keep them healthy. That includes being mindful of what you’re putting into your body and focusing on activities that make you feel good, not just filling up time because it’s something to do. And most importantly: spend less time on your phone.
Studies show that too much screen time can lead to a shorter lifespan . One study found that people who spent at least five hours per day looking at screens (e.g., TV, computer, smartphone) were 40% more likely to die prematurely than those who spent only two hours per day in front of screens.
A quality workout makes your lifespan longer by reducing stress hormones in the brain which cause you to age faster, and also helps increase serotonin levels which regulate moods and promote better sleep patterns. Happiness comes from a state of contentment with oneself — being grounded with meaningful relationships — all things we can cultivate through mindfulness practices like yoga or meditation.
