8. Limit your phone

When you talk with somebody, we put our phones on silent and be focused on that person. Why we can't do that for ourself also?

Our phones can make us lose track of time. It's easy to take a glimpse to a notification and then, boom, one hour later you're still scrolling. 

Put your phone upside down, on silent, or use the focus mode if your smartphone has one.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

1. Take some distance from your alarm

We all know how good the morning sleep is, but we also know the many times we wished to get up earlier so we can have more time.

When you set your alarm before bed, put it on the other side of the bedroom/room.

This will make you stand up, take a few steps to your alarm and wake up faster rather than immediately hit snooze and go back to dreaming

4. Hydrate yourself

Carry a full water bottle everywhere you go and drink water it when you feel bored, hungry, nervous or stressed. 

It's important to stay hydrated but we often don't do it because the glass of water is not there.

6. Eat better

Investing in quality, non-processed, organic food is investing in yourself, if you can afford it. Try to buy from local grocery shops, cook at home and improve the quality of the food you eat.

10. Be still

Give yourself a break to be quiet. 

Meditate, listen to music, do nothing or even go for a walk, anything that can ease off your mind and clear your toughts.

Appreciate your life, what you have, take a break from your reality and think about how great you are and make yourself stronger.

Add one personal item to your work to-do list each day. 

If your day is full of work related stuff, it's easy to be caught up in the busyness that we neglect ourselfs.

Go to the gym, call your parents, play with your kids.

Write a psyhical to-do list and put it beside your alarm on the other side of the room. 

It will make you stay motivated, organised, and will keep your brain empty when you try to sleep because all the tasks you need to do are safe there and forget-free. 

Also, if you feel you can't sleep because of so many toughts, wake up and write them down too!

Try to not bring junk food at home. It will make you lazy and go for the bad calories instead of cook that chicken with vegetables you already bought following the 6th habbit. 

If it's not there, you won't gonna eat it.

If you want to improve your life, it doesn't matter what you do once in a while, it's what you do every day.

The good part is that it's the simplest things you do are the biggest one that make a diffrence. Some of them take even less than 10 seconds. It's a small price you pay for the huge benefits that you get.

Although it's not that easy to do, going to sleep after a fight with your lover or a person you care about it's not healthy for the relationship in the long run.

Try to solve the problem before going to bed and don't leave space to be unhappy on eachother.

Importance Of Negativity

All Negativity is not bad as research shows people: 

  • Pay more attention
  • Learn from
  • Make decisions

From negative events and experiences than positives ones. 

For good reason, if something harmed us in the past, we are unlikely to repeat the experience as we would want to avoid the pain.

Spirituality & The Ego

"The opposite of spirituality is not materialism... but egotism" - Michael Pollan. 

Spirituality is often associated with gods or religion. It is, however, an experience of connectedness with the world and other people that does not require the supernatural. But it requires pushing the ego out of the way

People need to visualize themselves in places they want to be in and take action. Small or large incremental moves can help them reach their full potential. Progress is key for success so make sure that whatever is completed is recorded and apprecited.
