3. Develop Healthy Rituals
No matter what life situations you face, whether you’re an entrepreneur that travels around the globe and is constantly on the go, a mom and housewife, or if you’re an employee with a 9-5 office schedule, YOU are the person who establishes your rituals, routines and ways of thinking. And those in the end, define you. Rituals develop in to our habits and habits are subconciously the „safe places“ of our everyday life and become part of our routine. All of this underlines the importance of striving all the time to align your daily rituals with your vision and ultimate goals.
To live a great life, the key is to live healthily. Well-being is the source of happiness, success and productivity.
Define your own healthy rituals that work best for you by focusing on workout, diet, meditation, mindfulness, self-development, love and vision. Practice those rituals regularly – even if it only for a few minutes and watch them become part of an even better you.
4. Practice Gratitude
Those who are thankful lead by far the happiest lives. About six months ago, I started to write down five things that I am grateful for (and why), every night just before going to bed. It’s miraculous how my mindset has changed since then. To live in a state of gratitude lets you lead your life with fulfillment instead of longing.
Try to see each situation, no matter how tough, through what it has taught you and why you should be thankful for it, instead of why it has happened to you.
Value the things you have now. Remember that those were the things you once wanted. Whenever you have a setback in life, read your gratitude journal all over again; it will remind you of how great your life actually is.
