There are some habits that can significantly improve the quality of our lives.
In particular, today I want to share with you the 9 things that I find incredibly helpful for our challenging days.
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
It’s important to “feed” our mind with books, it keeps our brain fit and young, and it prevents dementia.
Also, it makes us wiser!
We already talked a lot about the benefits of exercise.
Being a form of preventing diseases, it improves our brain performance, and keeps our body healthy.
So, it benefits both mind and body, which are strictly related.
Regular meditation is one of the best habits you could ever develop.
As exercise, it’s extremely good both for your body and for your mind.
Plus, research showed that meditation develops some parts of our brain and strengthens the connections between neurons, in the long run.
4. Eat every 3 hours
This is very important, it gives us the right energy to perform appropriately all our tasks throughout the day, and helps accelerate our metabolism.
5. Eat one apple
Eating one apple a day is a rule. It’s a very healthy habit and it helps preventing diseases and to boost your brain performance.
6. Take a walk
Did you know that Steve Jobs used to walk every day for 1 or 2 hours?
Not only is it good to control your weight and tone your legs, but it benefits your mental performance and your mood.
7. Spend time on a hobby
Hobbies are a good tool to reduce stress and a good way to invest time in ourselves.
It’s important to spend time on something we really like to do, and I believe that not having hobbies in our life may affect our happiness.
8. Listen to music
Listening to music has the power to instantly change our mood.
This is why we should use it every day to add more energy and passion to what we do.
9. Drink green tea
This is obviously a very healthy habit.
Green tea contains B vitamins, magnesium, potassium and other antioxidants.
Also, it seems that it has a very positive impact on some kinds of cancer, even though it has not been demonstrated that green tea prevents so far.
You don’t need to do all these things every single day, but you should make sure to include all of them in your week and to spend some time on 3 or 4 of them every day.
However, some of these habits, such as eating every 3 hours, meditation and eating one apple a day, should be included in your daily plan.
Also, there are some habits that you can alternate, for example you can take a walk one day and exercise the other.
