Most of us have developed habits formed in our youth that we still act on today; brushing our teeth twice a day and showering daily. What other good habits can we comfortably say that 99% of the population do? There probably aren’t many

But the good news is that there are habits that you can implement into your life that will simply make it better. Below are a series of habits to start introducing into your life if you haven’t already. Number 6 is by far the most important for all human beings.

Reducing screen time

Have you ever had a day where you watched an entire season of a TV show, and that’s it? Now compare that to a time when you were doing something that is more fulfilling, such as spending time with your family or working on something important to you. If you’re like most people, you’d much prefer the latter. So the question is, why would we not want to have more of those fulfilling days?

Maybe you currently spend a lot of your free time scrolling through social media. There is no question that reducing this will allow you to live your own life, rather than living through others’.

Go into settings of your phone and check the screen time – you may find that you spend over 3 hours on your phone each day.

Try reducing this by 2 hours daily for a week, and in those 2 hours, spend time with family or perform the other habits that will follow below.

Meditation

Although its popularity is rapidly increasing, people may still view it as a wishy-washy action that ‘weird’ people or monks do. It would be safe to say that no one on this earth wants to experience unhappiness. This is not intending to say that meditation is the cure for happiness, but instead, it can definitely bring awareness into your life which subsequently induces tranquillity; a state of peace.

Give it a go. Focus on your breath for 5 minutes and when a though enters your mind, merely notice it and then continue to focus on your breath. Alternatively, you can use apps like ‘calm’ or ‘headspace’ or even search on YouTube for many free guided meditations. Who doesn’t want to feel more relaxed?
