You are your best investment — and your habits are the key to how well you thrive in life. For a balanced lifestyle that works with your body’s natural biorhythms, consider implementing these 10 powerful habits into your life.
First, eat an earlier, lighter dinner. A big meal hours before bedtime can do your body a great disservice and makes it harder to lose weight. Second habit: choose to overstress. Instead of responding to your daily circumstances in a frustrated manner, trying pausing frequently, relax into your breath, and feel the earth beneath your feet.
The third tip is something many of us rarely do these days: sit in silence. By doing this, your busy mind, emotions, and nerves hit the reset button. Fourth habit: go to bed early. Chances are you need more rest than you’re getting. The fifth habit may be the hardest, but it’s oh so rewarding. Instead of waking up and dreading the morning, relish the early moments of the day and set your day up right.
Habit number six: get your breath going before breakfast. Try five to 20 minutes of sun salutations, HIIT exercises, or anything else that gets the heart pumping. The seventh habit for transforming your lifestyle for the better requires eating a plant-based diet. A healthy mix of seeds, sprouts, fruits, shoots, and leaves will help your body run optimally.
Eighth habit: self-massage your body. Take a moment or two after you shower and give yourself a quick massage. Notice if you feel more comfortable in your skin. Number nine: space out your meals. Eat only two to three meals per day, without snacking. Trust us, you will feel better.
Finally, the last habit is one we should all do—take a break from your computer and come to your senses. Feel all your sense individually and you will open up your lenses of perception.
