20 Good Habits to Incorporate Into Your Life

February 3, 2015

 

 

I found this blog from "Inspiration Feed's" Igor Oysyannykov, who at 23 years old, is surprisingly advanced for his tender age. And while I didn't write any of this, I did edit it a bit to match my own philosophy.

  1. Exercise is good—a fact that can't be stressed enough. If you can't get to the gym, get up 30 minutes before your usual time to run around the neighborhood or doing 30-minute dance stepts at home is a great way to star

  2. Save money with every paycheck. Save 10 to 15% of what you earn and put it in the bank...every month. This way you'll have emergency funds when you really need them.

  3. Tidy up every night. No matter how tired you are, do the dishes and tidy up clutter. You need not be excessively orderly. Just make sure that beffore you sleep, the house is in order. In return, you'll awake with a fresh start each day.

  4. Reading is one of the best hobbies to which you can get addicted. It's a joy you can share with your family and friends. It's also something you can do that will enrich your vocabulary...and your world.

  5. Smile at your co-workers. It'll certainly help a lot to smile at salespeople when you're shopping. Smiling brightens their day and brightens yours as well. 

  6. Keep in touch with your loved ones. Call or send them a message daily to let them know that even with your busy schedule, they're always with you.

  7. Put the things you need in one place each day. Have a container, a drawer, a shelf near your nightstand or the garage to keep your wallet, keys, eyeglasses, etc. When you leave the next morning, you know where to look for your things. That's a day off to a good start.

  8. Organize what you need for tomorrow before you sleep at night. Fix your bag. Prepare your lunch. Finish your work presentation. Planning makes the next day go much smoother.

  9. Make time for your pet. Fifteen minutes of playtime with your dog will brighten both your days. A walk around the neighborhood is a bonding experience and exercise for you both.

  10. Floss every day. It's one dental cleaning trick that will save you tons of dollars in dental bills. And it only takes a couple of minutes.

  11. Pay your debts. Pay religiously and pay on time. PUnctual and regular payments can alleviate stress. Plus the debt (and the worry) go away faster.

  12. Finish a task you can do today. From resigning from a board you sit on to putting out the trash, don't leave it until tomorrow.

  13. Be punctual. Being late once or twice is forgivable. Being late all the time is a bad habit that can ruin your reputation. Be considerate of others; if they can be there on time, so can you.

  14. Give credit to others. Even if you did the majority of the work or your ideas were the brightest, the success of the team isn't solely because of you.

  15. Choose your words wisely. Even if you will deliver hard truths to your loved ones (something they don't want to hear but absolutley need to), think about what you will say before saying it.

  16. Sleep regularly. Give your body and your brain, a much-needed rest.

  17. Be considerate and friendly. Especially if you're dealing with hired helpers and customer support, being irate won't do you any good. Remember, even if you pay them to work for you, you still must give them respect.

  18. Learn something new every day. Trivia. A card trick. A new word. 

  19. Enjoy the silence. It's okay to do nothing and just enjoy the calm and silence once in a while. Put your phone down and reflect on your day and be grateful.

  20. Learn to accept the things you cannot change.
