Get back on track

Even if you've missed a day or two it's important to remember that every day is a new day and yesterday has nothing to do with today.

Let yourself live and learn how to not beat yourself up because of missed habits. Life is too short to live with burden.

Investing In the Best Hours Of Your Day
  • The morning hours are usually the best hours of your day, and what you do at that time has the power to change your life.
  • Keep yourself away from distractions and just focus on your morning goals, like meditating, reading, writing or exercising.
  • Checking e-mail, watching the news, or consuming useless (junk) content is the worst thing you can do in the morning.
The “Water Mindset”

Taking a cue from Bruce Lee’s famous quote ‘Be Water’, we must adopt a water mindset and adapt to our body and physiology: our best hour of the day could be any hour of the day, as long as it is according to you. Give yourself the best hour of the day.

All of us cannot wake up and join the 5 AM Club as our bodies are different and each morning isn’t the same.

Start With One Habit at a Time
Start With One Habit at a Time

New habits are very major life changes and should not be taken lightly. They require an enormous amount of discipline and mental energy to build, and you don't want to overwhelm yourself.

Change Your Timeline

Your timeline is how often you want to practice your new habit; it’s your recurring goal. For example, meditate for 30 minutes per day.

A short timeline can be overwhelming, and a long timeline won't give you enough practice. For best results, use a weekly timeline: mediate for 3 hours per week.

A good weekly timeline isn't overwhelming and will give you some “wiggle room” in your hectic schedule.

Start Low, Build As You Go

Keep your goals extremely small at the beginning, and then gradually increase them every week. Your initial goals should be so small that it would be impossible not to complete them:

  • meditate for 5 minutes this week.
  • read 5 pages this week.
  • floss 1 day this week.
