To keep yourself performing at the best you possible there are some habits you need to start incorporating into your day. I find the 30 day challenge applies here. When you are trying to develop a new habit it’s best to make yourself do it everyday for 30 days straight to make it second nature to you. Why should you do this? Going after your dream life is a challenge in itself, but if you aren’t taking care of yourself in the process it’s going to become even more challenging. Taking care of your body and mind should always be you number 1 priority and here are some habits that can help you with that:
- Eat Fruit Everyday
Eating anything with live cells in it gives you instant energy. Eating raw fruits or vegetables is packed with vitamins your body needs to be performing at it’s best. It’s the New Year, so my goal is to get back to eating one apple a day and more salad. I have been indulging in a lot of sweets over the holidays, so now it’s time to retrain my mind to reach for an apple anytime I crave something sweet.
- Meditate Daily
Meditation is amazing. Like I’ve mentioned before, it just clears your mind of any overthinking or negative thoughts and allows you to focus on what’s really important. I like meditating as part of my morning routine. To learn more about my morning routine click here.
- Exercise 3-5 Times a Week
Find the type of exercise that works best for you and just do it! I know it’s hard and some days you just don’t want to do, but do it! Your body and mind will thank you! Not only will exercise help tone your body, but it will also help clear your mind and make you feel great! The types of exercise I love most are Kundalini yoga, running & taking my dog for a walk.

- Drink Lots of Water Everyday
I can’t stress this enough! Drink water! There are so many benefits to drinking water, such as flushing out toxins from your body, weight loss, improved clarity, more energy, and more! I always keep a bottle of water near me and have basically replaced every drink that I used to drink with water.
- Make Your Bed Every Morning
This one may seem obvious, but so many people forget to do it. Whether it’s because you’re busy or just lazy, this crucial task of the day gets ignored. Making your bed is important because it’s one of those things that when you do it, you feel like you have accomplished something at the very start of your day. Which just sets you off to continue accomplishing things through out the day. Also, if you had like a really crappy day, there’s nothing better than coming home to a bed that’s already made and waiting for you.
