Healthy Habits Series – Types of Habits to Improve Your Life

Continuing the Healthy Habits Series and following on from my previous post – are you ready to create new habits and have the best life ever? That is amazing news! Now what you need to do is choose what types of habits will benefit you the most. These aren’t going to be the same for everyone, as someone else’s new habit might not fit into your schedule or lifestyle, or might be something you are already doing.

Here are some different types of habits you can start with – but don’t feel like you can’t add some of your own. At the end of the day, the habit is something that is going to improve YOUR life.

Start Your Day Right

The first selection of habits have to do with how you start each day. They often are incorporated into a new morning routine, but you can start small with just one simple morning habit at a time. This might mean making your bed, waking up early to have more time for your morning routine, adding yoga and/or meditation to your morning routine, taking your dog on a long walk in the morning, start juicing and when I say juicing, I mean fruits and veggies, or just cooking breakfast.

Think of small, simple habits that would improve your morning. Even as simple as waking up 10 minutes earlier so you have a little extra time to get ready if you have been running late for work often.

Other Daily Habits

There are other types of daily habits you can form as well. Maybe you want to use your journal or planner every evening before bed, have a normal self-care routine once a day, or read out affirmations to yourself each day before you start your day. They can also be things like clearing clutter in your living room or practicing good dental hygiene.

Improving Your Physical Health

Some habits are meant to improve your health and vitality each day. These can include cooking more meals at home if you are trying to eat healthier, doing exercise each day, or drinking more water. Maybe you are trying to lose weight, but you get overwhelmed with changing all your unhealthy habits at the same time. This is when you benefit from just drinking more water and reducing fizzy drinks for a few weeks. You could also work on reducing sugar and processed foods, by adding in more fruits and vegetables for the next few weeks. Gradually, you become a healthier person and will reach your goals through each small habit.

Improving Your Mental Health

Next you have your mental health. It is important that you take this just as seriously as your physical health. Some habits that are great for mental health include adapting a meditation or mindfulness routine, writing in a journal, and participating in activities that help to reduce your stress levels. Accordingly, you might also want to introduce some natural products or herbal remedies into your mental health toolkit. For example, a friend of mine has found that using psychedelics in a controlled way has helped to make her depression more manageable. You can learn more about the potential health-boosting benefits of psychedelics such as psilocybin by taking a look at this guide to Magic Mushrooms and Creativity. They can be beneficial for people looking to improve their mental health. However, there are other ways that people could take cannabis-related products to improve their wellbeing. For example, some people prefer to take their CBD as powders or tinctures. If that’s of interest to you, you could consider visiting to learn more about the different ways that people could take CBD to boost their mood. It’s so important that mental health isn’t left to worsen, so make sure to do something about it.
