5 Habits For Happy Living
Updated: Oct 26, 2020
1. Map out your day
Make yourself a little timetable. It could be between 3 and 5 goals of the new day and it doesn’t even need to be written down, it could just be in your head. By having an outline of what you intend on doing for the day will set you up for success, and you will always have that feeling of accomplishment that you did what you set out to do.
2. Learning isn’t just for the kids
Apparently David Attenborough has never been to a gym and his secret to health lies in learning. Remember your brain is a muscle that needs exercising too! Try puzzles or read a few pages of a non-fiction book daily to keep those neurons happy and healthy.
3. De-clutter your house (and mind!)
Have you tried the 10 minute challenge with your partner, or even the kids? Set a timer to 10 minutes and race around the house seeing what you can get cleaned up and tidied away - you’ll be amazed!
4. Get that booty moving!
We all know that exercise releases endorphins and gives us that happy feeling, but we also know it can be hard getting going! Small steps, big impact. That’s my motto this year. The way I see it, I owe it to my future self, my husband and (hopefully one day!) future children to be the best, fittest version of myself I can be. So, I’ve made a conscious effort to make small swaps and get a few 15 minutes workouts in a week. The work girls and I have started doing a pre-school Joe Wicks workout each Tuesday and we are all loving it. We all have to start somewhere so pick something small and go for it.
5. Remember each day is a new day.
It’s a fresh start! Every day we get the chance to start again with new goals and new optimism. Yesterday has been and gone and you are older and wiser for it. Give yourself a few minutes in the morning to remind yourself that every day counts and everyday you are making a difference to someone, knowingly or not.
What have you achieved today?
