Posted: Oct 21, 2019
Building good habits can help keep us stay healthier as we age. You need to have the right mindset, which leads us to the first good habit.
1. Practice self-confidence every day is essential. If you lack confidence, it can be learned.
Confidence can be shown in many different ways, from how you treat others to how you carry yourself.
You can also show reasonable confidence in the way you react toward people, their criticisms, and your actions.
2. The second good habit is to embrace failure. This may seem odd to you, but embracing your failures helps you learn from your mistakes.
This may show that you're bad at something, but it will help point you in the direction of something you're good at.
We all fail, miserably sometimes, but how you respond is what's important.
Getting upset and making a stink show a lack of confidence. Learn to handle negative thoughts the positive way so situations don't look so bleak.
Learn from your mistakes and move forward.
3. Reading books is our third good habit. There are so many benefits to reading which include:
so much more...
Think about the types of books you'd like to read or what you're interested in.
Start reading, continue reading because it's excellent for your brain.
4. Drinking lots of water is essential for our health. Too many times, I've gone without drinking enough water, and I feel tired out during the day.
I don't always drink enough, but I try my hardest to drink at least 8 oz at least eight times a day.
Water has many health benefits such as getting rid of toxins in our body, speeds up our metabolism, and rehydrates us.
I found that if I drink a cup of water before I eat a meal, it helps me from overeating.
5. Exercising is our fifth and final habit for this article. I exercise 3 times a week as this fits my schedule, but some recommend 4-5 times a week.
You can walk, run, do cardio, and lift weights.
All have fantastic health benefits, which will keep you healthy for long life.
6. If you have anxiety, I recommend getting help. I've suffered from anxiety
my entire life and learning to manage your stress will make your life so much more enjoyable.
Did you know more than 40 million adults in the United States suffer from anxiety?
Many people are embarrassed and hide their anxieties.
Identify what makes you anxious and learn proper self-care. Seek professional help, try cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety; all these will make your life happier.
7. Getting the proper rest will allow you to enjoy each day. Being tired and not getting enough rest can make us feel cranky.
Your body needs a schedule, so try to go to bed around the same time each night and get up the same time each morning.
I'm often tempted to sleep in on the weekend, but don't do it! Why? Because it will throw your sleep schedule off and come Monday morning, you'll be exhausted.
