We breathe every single breath with the same passion we’d said goodbye to the last one. We outlive every moment with a burning desire to achieve more, experience more. It isn’t greed or selfishness. We want to enrich our lives by connecting with the inner being and energy flowing everywhere around us. Our habits bring us a step closer to live the life masters, spiritually-awakened sages have experienced before us. Life is a matter of choices made. Do we take the decisions for us? Is there a possibility of someone else taking the decisions? Your habits take the decision on your behalf. You follow the routine and repeat the same set of activities every day without knowing you’re obeying the commands than making ones. Nature’s arc organics help readers to develop an understanding of how to pick the right habits to live a longer life.
We’ve created a list of top 10 healthy habits to improve the quality of life, make every single moment count.
1. Walk Daily to Clear the Mind of Distractions
Do we consider mental wellbeing as important as physical health? You should make a routine of taking a walk daily. Walking lends perspective. You tend to overcome long-held problems by taking a walk in the park. Walking tunes your mind to a different frequency level. You find yourself lost in nature. Your senses become far effective and act as a guide to show you the right path. You should walk for thirty minutes daily.
2. Build a Habit of Standing to Maintain Cholesterol Level
Sitting behind the desk for long hours makes your mind and body dull. It has an adverse impact on productivity. You should develop a habit of getting up from the chair, standing for a couple of minutes. It makes you feel energetic, focused. Top companies offer standing-and-sitting work stations. Team members can work either sitting or standing at regular intervals. Our system absorbs sugary food items better when we’re in the motion.
3. Monitor Your Sleep Pattern to Live a Stress-Free Life
A human being is required to have a sound sleep of 7 to 8 hours daily. A sound sleeping system recharges and repairs the body to prepare it for the next day. Lack of sleep causes depression in many people. You should work on a sleeping pattern to avoid falling victim to unnecessary health risks. The benefits of enjoying a sound sleep are better productivity, memory and low-stress level, etc.
4. Manage Your Personal, Social and Work Lives
People have less time for themselves in modern society. Their work lives consume a lot of time with only a fraction of time left to look after personal and social roles. The loss is we don’t have enough time to sit down with ourselves and spend some time doing nothing. We need to manage our work, personal and social lives and draw boundaries among them. The idea is to learn the art of time management.
5. Limit the Use of Technology at Home
How many minutes, seconds or hours do you spend with yourself? We should limit the use of smart devices at home to spend quality time with family. We are emotional beings who thrive on compassion, love, belief, hope, etc. We should go outside, visit the countryside and engage ourselves in recreational activities to relax the mind, gather a perspective on life.
6. Practice Yoga and Meditation
Spirituality is the only hope left. We should practice yoga and meditation to control the mind. The connection with one’s inner energy makes us realize the purpose of life. We begin to nurture kindness, gratitude in life. These qualities raise us to think and live life at a higher plain.
7. Devote Time and Efforts to a Social Cause
We need a purpose at every stage of life. We’ve got different challenges in every decade of our lives. There comes a time when we want to give back to society to make it a better place. Associating oneself with a social project ignites a spark that brings more happiness and joy in our lives to what we’ve contributed.
8. Pick a Book Every Month to Learn and Outgrow
Our roles and responsibilities shape our outlook. We need to get out of the personal zone and tread on different paths. It all begins with reading and knowing about the world out there. Reading books opens the door of imagination, creativity. We start looking at life in a different light. Nothing changes except you become far more conscious about your choices and their impact on the world.
9. Start Writing or Recoding Your Thoughts
We all have got a unique understanding of things. We become aware of our strengths by working on them for years. Writing or recording your thoughts sends a strong signal out to the universe that you want to accomplish something. You make a kind of a promise to yourself. It doesn’t matter whether you fail or succeed in doing it. The only way you can know it is by making efforts and nature would do the remaining to make it successful the next time.
10. Nurture Talent to Fulfil Your Potential
We should instill hope and belief in others. The best leaders are those who help others to see the kind of ability they possess. When you try to make somebody learn something, yo also pick up a few things along the way. You should help your team members knowing they don’t lack in confidence or ability. You should help them to learn from your experience so they can save themselves from making silly errors in the process.
