Without further ado, here are the 10 easy habits to help you live a better life! 

1. Wake Up Early

There is power in waking up early in the morning; you get to do many things before the day goes by. Whenever I wake up very early, my level of efficiency and productivity becomes very high.

Additionally, this helps reduce my stress level, as I get to do everything on time and move to the next task. Waking up early will help you get things done without rushing in the morning and check out the news to see what is happening worldwide.

Moreso,  it’s essential to wake up earlier and use the first couple of hours to take control of your state of mind and your body. 

You get the take your time and eat breakfast at home and tidy your home before leaving for work. 

2. Say A Word Of Prayer 

Say a word of Prayer

Saying a word of prayer in the morning is necessary for the hustle of life. You have to be thankful for life and pray for the day. As a Christian, the first thing I do in the morning is to say a thank you prayer. This keeps me at peace all day and makes my day go smoothly. 

You can go ahead and read a bible verse and then concluded your prayers. Having a devotional really helps with this as it outlines what to read and even gives you a prayer point. I believe, Prayer is the key; prayer is the master key. Start your day right, and you will live a better life. 

3. Make Your Bed In The Morning

Make Your Bed In The Morning

The way your bed look tells a lot about you. I know people will not always see the inside of your bedroom, but hey, you are not doing it for people to see; you are doing it for yourself. 

There is this good feeling about having a clean bedroom and sheet when leaving the house in the morning because you get to meet a clean bedroom when you return.  So, try and make your bed every morning before starting your day, it will make you feel better, and you will start your day right. 

4. Have A Plan For The Day

Have a Plan and Live A Better Life

A life without a plan is like a life without direction. Planning your day helps you to be organized and allows things to flow better. Creating a plan also helps you to track your day’s activities. This means you know exactly what activity you’ll do when from the moment you wake up. You get to know what you have accomplished and what needs to be done. 

You might not 100% follow the plan as the day goes or due to circumstance, but at least you have a plan and know what to do next. Use either the paper method to create one or an electronics method using a computer, phone, or tablet.  It’s also hard to be productive when you don’t have your day planned out. Give yourself deadlines that way you know what you are working on on a certain time.

Remember, implementation matters, but this depends solely on your ability to plan and follow through on that plan.

Tips: Complete your most dreaded tasks first thing in the morning.

5. Spend Less Time on Social Media / Internet 

Spend Less Time on Social Media / Internet

With the advancement of technology today, people tend to spend more time on social media than real people. Social media has taken over the world, and people tend to use it for different things. Social media and the internet have made so many people rich but let’s not forget that it has made some useful.

People spend hours on social media without doing anything. Spend less time on social media, and you will see the result you get daily. If you have something important to do, I will advise you to delete the apps and focus on your business. Use social media in your spare time when you are not using it for business. The easiest way to go about social media is by muting or unfollowing must social media account.

6. Have some quiet time daily

This world is so noisy that people forget to quiet time alone. There are so many distractions around us, and we tend to follow the music as it plays. Take a few minutes each day to have a quiet time and concentrate on yourself.

Furthermore, quiet time will help you think of new ideas and get to know yourself better. Use this time to be creative and look deep into things that are not working out; you will quickly figure them out. I like doing this at night after my baby has gone to bed, which helps me.

Do you sometimes get tired of doing the same thing over and over again?  Try something new once in a while will help in so many ways. It will help increase your confidence and productivity and offer so many benefits. 

It will open new opportunities and open new doors for you. You can take up a new career, visit a new environment, learn a new skill, or write a book. Whatever the case may be, take up some new things to do once in a while. Take up new challenges and do something you have never done before. 

8. Drink A Lot Of  Water

Drink Water

As the saying goes, health is wealth. We need to be healthy to look for wealth, and one of the easiest ways to do that is to drink a lot of water. Do you know how much water you drink daily? Drinking a lot of water comes with so many benefits: it helps to nourish our body. Additionally, it gives us the energy to stay hydrated all day and keeps us going. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day; it will help you live a better life.  I personally try to drink a lot of water all day long.

9. Prepare Your Items For The Next Day

Are you among the people who wait till the last minute to get things ready? Do you wait till the next morning before looking for what to wear to work?  What food to take for lunch? Getting everything ready the previous day or night will help you to start your day fast and easily. Plan for the clothes you will wear, food for the kids, and other things that need to be done. 

10. Stay Motivated all the Time 

Motivation goes a long way in the way we live our lives. If you are always demoralized or not motivated to do things, you will not get things done.  We need to stay motivated in life whatever happens, and I tell you, things will happen so fast and right. 

Always be extremely optimistic and be committed to the end goal. Surround yourself with like-minded people and establish a personal reward system that will help you appreciate yourself. Staying motivated in life is incredibly important as it will help you organize your thoughts and live a better life.

  2. Good tips. Waking up early works wonders for me too.

    1. These tips are awesome. I hope to try them out and go from there. I was born into a Catholic religion and that’s it. I’m not a true Catholic who goes to church, but I pray every night before bed and I am fine with that. I will try to pray in the morning and make it a routine. There’s a few other tips I struggle with as well, but I hope to change that. Thanks for sharing your helpful tips!

  3. Great tips! I especially struggle with #5 and limiting my social media. I plan to work on this and reduce it over 2020

  4. Great tips! Waking up early is the hardest one for me! It seems like it should be the easiest, but it’s definitely NOT! my husband get sup early, and I wait until the absolute last minute to get out and then rush to whatever!

    1. Hi Chantelle, I can relate to not waking up early and doing things at the last minute. It takes learning and dedication to get it right.. Thank you for stopping by…

    2. Quiet time actually helps a lot esp. if we focus on our breathing too 🙂 Loved your key points.

  5. I love your post. Such great tips, especially about starting the day off with prayer. Staying organised and planning your day is such a useful habit too. Thanks for sharing.

  6. You had me from the first sentence: “Living a better life doesn’t have to be hard instead, it should be flexible and enjoyable.”

    I agree, it’s only hard if we don’t follow our own inner wisdom and listen to the spirit speaking to us personally. Too often we listen to the advice of someone living a life, we ourselves do not desire. Just because someone says a 5 mile run at 5 am in the morning works for them, doesn’t mean it will work for you. You might, like me, prefer a gentle rise as the sun awakens you, a stretch, a walk and a dance to music that moves you from the core. In life, it’s important to find the things that work for us and brings us joy (and it may look completely different to the person standing next to us).

    Like you, I have found prayer a powerful inspiration and comfort. Thank you for sharing, I look forward to your next post.

  9. I swear by #9 and make sure I always prepare for the next day. It just makes things easier! Thanks for sharing this great list of habits 🙂

  10. Katy Malkin says:

    Love this. It’s the motivation and drinking water I find to be the hardest.

  11. I agree with taking time away from the internet or spending less time on social media. I think we live in an age where everyone uses the internet so much and it can sometimes overshadow what is really important in life. On the internet we can’t use every sense, so everything we cannot use is compensated with various forms of rumination. This can be everything from overthinking to worrying and much more. Great blog post and very vital in a beautiful world that has its dark moments.

  12. Spending time on social media is definitely something I’ve been wanting to reduce lately, especially in the morning. There are far better habits than scrolling on IG, so I uninstall IG every few days to do some detox 🙂

  13. I love this post. And such easy things to install. My favourite is the make your bed. I always do this. If for any reason it’s unmade I have to make it before I can get into it at night lol madness but it makes me feel right x

  14. Planning for the next day is certainly a habit that has worked well for me for years. It makes it a lot easier to get up in the morning knowing that everything’s been planned and all you have to do is take action.

  15. I totally agree with life being flexible and enjoyable and have found that during different seasons of life how, when and why you do things are different. The main point is enjoying life and doing things when they suit you. From your great tips, social media and the internet are so easy to get lost in when I’m working on my blog as it is the place where bloggers share their words of wisdom. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Hello Mina- This a great article. A lot of these habits are so approachable and key components to my self-care routine. I always make my bed and find that it helps me set the tune for the day. I could personally be a lot better about water intake and planning my day ahead of time. Thank you for the great post.

  17. Everyone needs a morning routine even if it’s not in the morning. I work overnight, so my routine starts after lunch sometimes. Always best to have a plan, that way you always know what needs to be done.

  18. Hi – Great blog.

    Took a quick assessment.
    I am good with 1, 2, 3, & 7

    Working on 4, 8, 9, 10

    Bad with the following
    5 – Social Media Marketing is my job and I need it to grow my blog
    6. Need quiet time

    This was a great gut check for me. Need a checklist to stay on top of this.

    Thanks,

    Sabrina

  19. These are great simple tips! They’re completely doable. I definitely need to try cutting down my internet/social media time. It’s important to focus on what I need to do and less on distractions.

  20. Live a better life sounds so good. A lot of these I have always done since I get up so early for my job. The spending less time on social media is a little hard to do. With so many things happening that’s how we communicate with people. Many helpful tips, I will try to implement soon. Thanks for sharing your tips!
