4. Reflect on your day
This mental habit can help you increase self-awareness, regulate your emotions, and reduce anxiety associated with challenging tasks. Set aside at least five minutes during the day to pay attention to your thoughts and feelings.
Habio's blog authors have created a super-handy tool for that called Daily Reflection. It's a smart diary in the Habio App
that helps track daily emotions, develop mindfulness, and keep your notes within eyeshot — all on your phone. You can try using it or your favorite notebook with a stylish pen. 5. Block distractions
An hour before bedtime, put away your smartphone and read a printed book, take a bath, or listen to some music. These things will help you relax, sleep better, and you'll wake up more refreshed.
Scientists long ago proved that the light from screen monitors harms human eyes and the brain's ability to reboot during sleep. Sounds like a pretty good reason to start blocking distractions. 6. Write
It's time to mention a constructive but not-so-obvious habit of highly effective people. Before going to bed, spend 5-10 minutes writing a story or blog post. You can describe real-life experiences or use your imagination. This practice increases your creativity
and mindfulness and can improve
critical thinking. At the same time, you'll probably want to stay in the loop by reading various kinds of literary works. 7. Praise yourself
Every evening, write down one reason you appreciate yourself in a personal journal. It'll help your brain focus on the good, which can make you happier. Don't skimp on the kind words! The primary metric of your success is yourself. The more you value yourself, the worthier and more successful you are in the eyes of others.
Praise and support yourself regularly. Find new sources of motivation and talk to people who know their goals and move towards them. Develop the habits of highly effective people, and you'll be surprised by your success.
