  • Habits to Dramatically Improve Your Life

    Small changes can have a dramatic impact.

    Take the quality of your life, for example. You don’t have to give up all your worldly possessions, permanently drop off the grid, or become an environmental vegan to be happier. In fact, drastic changes can increase your stress levels – and they’re usually not sustainable.

    If you want to dramatically improve your life, think small. Start by adopting just one of the habits outlined below:

    Practice Positive Thinking

    This is the foundation upon which many other productive habits are based. Why? Because thoughts, mental images and internal dialogue all influence your actions. If you discipline yourself to view failures as temporary, forgive yourself for mistakes, picture positive outcomes and look for the best in situations, the way you act will be more intentional and productive.

    Single-Task

    Multitasking doesn’t work. When it comes to the brain’s ability to pay attention, it focuses on concepts sequentially, not on two things at once. So, work with your brain – not against it. By dedicating your full attention to one high-focus task at a time, you’ll be less stressed, more productive and happier throughout your day.

    Eliminate Technology in the Bedroom

    The blue light screens emit has been proven to interfere with sleep quality, because it halts production of melatonin (a sleep-inducing hormone). And honestly, do you really want work emails or random Facebook notifications dancing around in your head while you’re trying to unwind for the night?

    Be Kinder

    To make kindness a lasting habit, make a goal to do one kind thing for someone each day. Be mindful in your daily interactions, looking for opportunities to soften your language, offer help or just be friendlier. It’s easy, it’s free and it creates good karma.

    Which of these suggestions sounds the most appealing to you? Choose one, and focus on adopting that single habit. Once you’ve made one improvement, move onto another. By making small, serial changes, you’ll quickly gain momentum, improving your happiness and overall quality of life.

    Looking for more ways to increase your life and job satisfaction?

    Adopt the habits of happy people. In this earlier post, we shared the following habits to make your life more positive and satisfying:

    1. Be kinder to yourself.
    2. Surround yourself with optimistic people.
    3. Get your Zzzzs.
    4. Make your social feeds more positive.

    Read the full post to learn more about any of these habits.
