Simple Daily Habits for a Healthy Mind


Success in life doesn't happen by chance, it is determined by daily routine and habits. If we can make and keep lots of positive things as habits, after a while it becomes like second nature to us. 

Developing these habits requires determination, tremendous patience, and constant effort. It may take just a few weeks or a year, but as long as you do not give up, you have a greater chance of maintaining a healthy mind.

Here's a list of 15 simple daily habits that will help you improve and maintain a healthy mind. Add these simple habits to your daily routine or personal growth plan to create a better life for yourself.

1. Speak Positively

According to Collins Dictionary, If you are positive about things, you are hopeful and confident and think of the good aspects of a situation rather than the bad ones. Our words have true power and we must learn to utilize this power to our own benefit. Even when something bad happens, don't treat it as a disaster. Tell yourself it's an inconvenience and then get on with your life.

Our brains are actually wired to hang on to negative thoughts more than positive ones, however, we can trick our brains by making changes in the way we speak to ourselves. Little habits like; Smiling even if you don't feel like it, Slowing down to really soak up positive experiences, starting a daily gratitude practice, and Focusing more on what can go right, can all contribute to you speaking positively.

2. Avoid Negative People

It's easy to identify that Negative Nancy who wreaks havoc on morale.  Most successful people that I have met or read about have one thing in common - They made it a rule to avoid negative people! Maybe it's a relative or a colleague but real life includes people who scorn your optimism because they don't have dreams of their own. You should avoid negative people because; They can affect your attitude, Negative feedback from negative people affects your thinking, They are an energy drain, It damages your credibility, Negative people won’t provide encouragement, They are hard to get rid of, and they love drama, You won’t grow.

3. Laugh

It is often said that laughter is the best medicine. It has very similar effects with exercising. Research has shown that laughter can help relieve pain, bring greater happiness, and even increase immunity. Pay attention for a day to how much humor and laughter are in your life. How many times do you have a good laugh? Is it enough? How often do you make others laugh? How often for your colleagues, and how often for patients? Do you make family members and friends laugh? Who makes you laugh? To get more laughter in your life, laugh with friends, laugh about life's frustrations, fake laughter until you're able to truly laugh, and use the laughter opportunities that entertainment provides. Humor helps you keep a positive, optimistic outlook through difficult situations, disappointments, and loss.

4. Declutter

We are living in a time when many of us are dealing with high-stress levels yet we do not understand how our personal habits might be contributing to our anxiety. For many people, being surrounded by more than they can handle can be stressful and make life seem out of control for them. You can manage yourself better when you declutter your home and take care of the mess. Organizing and decluttering relieve stress for many people by providing a sense of control and accomplishment. Clutter in the office can make us less productive and lead to more burnout while clutter at home may lower happiness and make us feel less secure.

5. Journal

Journaling is a written account of your thoughts and feelings as you navigate everyday life. It’s a strategy that has helped brilliant, powerful and wise people become better at what they do. The beauty of journaling is that there’s no right or wrong way to do it. Developing a journaling habit can help you work through your emotions, especially when you’re feeling anxious or sad. It can also help you grow, become more self-aware, and gain meaningful insights. Wondering how to do it? Start small, Track something in your journal, Use your journal to prepare in the morning, Use your journal to review your day in the evening, Copy down important quotes in your journal, and Brainstorm ideas in your journal.

6. Spend Time Outside

As children, we were told to choose our friends wisely. But that's not all. Our social interactions, or lack thereof, affect our health and well-being. 

7. Learn Something

8. Read a Book

9. Try a Digital Detox
