By Scarlet Gratton

No matter how well we seem to be doing in overcoming countless life challenges and working on becoming happier and more satisfied, there is always room for improvement. Since we are the ones who know ourselves the best, we are the ones who can pinpoint the exact places and aspects of our lives that could stand a change for the better. Here are some of the habits that you may want to acquire on your path to happiness and better health...

Good sleep

Just think about how poor your mood is and how unmotivated you feel whenever you’ve had a sleepless night. Therein lies a powerful message: avoid sleep deprivation whenever possible. Not getting as much sleep as you need has multiple consequences, some of which are evident right away, while others take a bit more time to reveal themselves but can also be a bit more serious. Create a routine—go to bed around the same time every night and get up around the same time every morning. By doing so, you will be preventing moodiness, fatigue and exhaustion, lack of motivation and drive, poor concentration, as well as a number of health problems like weakened immune system.

Reducing exposure to stress

Stress is a bigger enemy than we may find it to be. It is wise to avoid stressful situations as much as we can, whether it is conflict, exaggerating problems, worrying about insignificant things, and so on. Naturally, stress is an integral part of life and nobody is immune to it. But sometimes, it does come down to our choice and how we decide to handle a specific potentially stress-inflicting situation. Aim for solving the problem rather than worrying about the fact that it exists.

Health checks and screenings

It is well known that regular health checks are highly recommendable for maintaining good health. Many things can change in our body without us being aware of them at all. Precisely for this reason, specific screenings and medical exams should not be skipped and ignored as they can help us prevent more serious problems. They can detect such problems early on and help us treat them on time so they don’t develop into severe issues. This habit can contribute immensely to the quality of your life and keep you healthy.

Maintaining fitness

This is probably one piece of advice we hear most frequently, but certainly justifiably so. The list of benefits that exercise and regular physical activity have for the mind and body is incredibly long. So, if you feel you are lacking movement and your muscles are getting a bit lazy, it’s time to acquire a new habit. First find an activity that you find most appealing and then see how you can make it more pleasant. For example, if your idea of an ideal workout session is set in a gym, you can make it even better by equipping yourself with excellent gym shoes and comfortable clothes that will help you feel good about what you’re doing and make it a bit easier.

Improving relationships

How satisfied and fulfilled we are also depends enormously on the kinds of relationships we nurture with those around us. Work on your friendships and relationships with your family members, coworkers, neighbors… Surround yourself with people who support and love you and who you love and support, and invest effort into making that last.

Eating and drinking responsibly

No better time than right now to kick all the unhealthy foods out of your nutrition and surprise your kitchen with fresh fruit and vegetables and other praiseworthy food. The advantages are numerous, from preventing a number of illnesses and issues to maintaining a healthy weight and a good figure which you’ll be grateful for.

Introducing and learning new things

This is a truly rewarding habit, which can enrich you immensely as a person. Become more open to learning new skills, expanding your knowledge, and trying out new things. Nourish curiosity and keep your brain active. You’ll soon begin realizing how much more colorful the world is than you previously imagined and you could open up new doors and opportunities for yourself. Life is constantly accompanied by change. Do whatever is in your power to make that change positive.
