Daily Rituals That Will Change Your Life

Aren’t we all interested in changing our lives? But we also constantly remind ourselves that it is not possible. Well, it is possible to change your life. Of course you can’t change your past but you can move on and just make the rest of your life better, however you want it to be, I am assuming positive, beautiful, and successful. So, here are a few things that I believe can help each and every one of us in changing our lives for good.

Practicing Self Discipline

Self discipline can help you in a number of ways and it can completely change your life in the long term. However, practicing self discipline is a continuous process and you will be suggested to start slow.

Start by making your bed everyday right after you get out of the bed. Then maybe introduce another activity like washing dishes right when you are done using them instead of piling them up, taking showers everyday, eating healthy, balanced meals and not skipping breakfast.  Self discipline includes maintaining and managing your surroundings and yourself. Your surroundings have a significant role to play in your life and by simply cleaning it, you can declutter your mind and expose yourself to better health, mindset, and lifestyle. All of this can significantly change your life for good.

Journaling

Journaling

Literally everyone who has a productive morning routine recommends journaling. Although it seems a very overrated concept, you are bound to witness a major shift in every aspect of your life once you start writing a journal everyday.

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to journaling even though there are many guides available on the internet to help beginners out. All you are supposed to do is write your heart out.

There are different writing activities that people do in the morning from writing things you are grateful for to filling three pages every morning, you can pick any writing technique or mix and match them to create your own. The idea is to simply pen down your thoughts so that you don’t keep spiraling in your own thoughts.

Journaling has several benefits especially for your mental health and it can drastically change your life.

Having a Morning Routine

Simply waking up early can bring in so much change in your life but when you have a well structured morning routine, it can do wonders to your day, mood, body, lifestyle, and life overall. A well structured morning routine includes waking up early, moving, meditating, writing, reading, doing something productive, and eating a healthy breakfast. Every activity that is included in a morning routine has several benefits to offer. You can simply calculate the total benefits.

A morning routine can give structure to your life and structure brings stability and success. You will have a more clear and creative mind and you will be open to betterment, growth, and adventures. 

Meditating

Meditating

Meditation is another practice that is recommended by almost every other successful person. Meditation alone has the potential to change everything in your life drastically and promote positivity. It is a great way to get out of your head, stop overthinking, stressing over something, and relieving anxiety, nervousness, and fear. Meditation has infinite benefits and if included in your everyday routine, it can bring a very positive shift in your life in no time. 

Smiling

Smiling, staying positive and happy will only attract positivity and happiness in life. Of course this does not mean you should smile all the time or you are not allowed to feel any other emotion. By smiling, you are supposed to just stay positive and be happy with whatever is happening. Especially if you are dealing with things you cannot change. Simply changing your approach towards your struggles and issues can help you in efficiently solving or dealing with them.

It is difficult for everyone to practice this initially but at least try. Try to consciously shift yourself towards positive thinking, when you realize you are feeling negative, bring yourself back to this side. You will fail, there will be times when you will not feel positive at all and that is okay. Eventually you will reach a point where negativity will stop affecting you and you will be least bothered by what or who is trying to trigger you. You will experience a difference yourself. In fact, you won’t have to wait to see the difference. Start today and try this for just three days and see how much it can change things for you.

Being Present in the Moment

Being Present in the Moment

We lose so many things because we are not present in the moment. It is high time we realize that multitasking is NOT the right approach and it is definitely not something that everyone can adapt flawlessly. Be present in the moment. Leave the phone or leave the place, work on one project at a time, invest yourself completely in things that matter or are a priority.

This also means that you need to stop that train of thoughts. We all are guilty of being in a situation where we can simply forget everything and enjoy the moment but instead of doing that we indulge in all sorts of thought, “what work is supposed to be done”, “I should not have done what I did 3 days back”, “does he like me”, “why is my life a mess”, so on and so forth. Your life is a mess because you are making it one, simplify it by simplifying your thoughts.
