5 Habits To Transform Your Life

“Let today be the day you give up who you’ve been for who you can become”

MEDITATION

“The thing about meditation is: you become more and more you”

Meditation is the most underrated and the most hated habit by millennials. But once you get into meditation there is no looking back. And I know how to encourage you all to start doing meditation today and for that, I will simply tell you the benefits of it.

These are the 7 scientifically proven benefits of doing meditation:-

1. It improves your memory.

2. It improves your attention, focus, and your ability to work in stressful circumstances.

3. It makes you more creative.

4. It regulates anxiety and mood disorders.

5. It helps in reducing stress.

6. It makes decision-making easier.

7. It is a more effective pain reliever than Morphine.

Trust me, I have myself experienced all these seven benefits just within one month of regular meditation.

EXERCISING

“Good things come to those who Sweat”

This is the easiest and the most fun of all these five habits. You can just go for a walk, play football or basketball or any other sport, go to a gym or else if you do not have the time to go outside, you can just do skipping and basic exercise at your home.

Skipping is the best and the most result-oriented exercise. Doing skipping regularly for around thirty days can help you reduce belly fat, become more flexible and it also has many health benefits.

Do whatever exercise you like to do but keep one thing in mind “Be Consistent”

READING

“Reading is to the Mind, what exercise is to the Body”

Reading is the best and the easiest way to learn new things and improve your life. You can read the experiences and learnings of thousands of people and can learn from them without wasting your time to learn those things yourself. We have never-ending content to read and learn from.

If you are someone who likes to grow continuously in life, then reading is compulsory for you.

Though many of us find reading to be boring. But trust me if you are reading this article then you have the potential to read whatever you want, no matter how long it is.

To start with, you can read short articles first and then slowly and gradually you can move onto reading books and long pieces of work.

JOURNALING

“Journal writing is a voyage to the interior”

Most of us confuse journaling with writing a diary. Though both of these are kind of same things but journaling is say a mature version of a Diary. It is a place where you can feel yourself and be the real you.

Here are the five things about which you can write in a Journal:

1. Your short-term and long-term goals and the progress you have made regarding those goals.

2. Creative ideas which you get while in the shower or during the day.

3. Whatever new you learn in life and whatever new you experience.

4. Your pain and sorrows.

5. Whatever pleases you.

By writing in a journal on a daily basis you are recording the story of your life, which you can read at any point of time.

Journaling also helps you in the difficult phases of your life, as you can write about all your sufferings in the journal and you can also go through the past difficult moments of your life and can gain energy and confidence from them; If I got through that phase of my life, I can through this phase too.

No matter whether you write two lines or two pages, but write daily.

EXPRESSING GRATITUDE

“Gratitude turns what we have into Enough”

We, humans, have everything to be happy, we have the easiest life as compared to other living creatures on this planet. But then also we have an inbuilt tendency of always feeling unsatisfied.

Why?

The answer is because we never stop for a moment and count all what luxury we have that others don’t, and so we never become thankful for whatever we have.

The only way of becoming satisfied and truly happy in life is by expressing Gratitude daily and Consistently.

How?

This you can do by writing about one thing daily which you are grateful for in your Journal.

Whatever habit(s) you apply in your life, just remember one thing “BE CONSISTENT”
