Whether we realize it or not, our small inconsequential habits make or break our lives. They determine how we care for ourselves and interact with others. They define the quality of our work and the ultimate impact we have.
We all want our lives to matter. To feel we make a difference. Feel significant in some way.
But this all begins with our simple daily actions. So, let’s check out five ways your daily routine can make you successful!
1. Begin the Day on Purpose
How we start any day determines its trajectory. In other words, win the morning and you automatically win the day! Wake up, breathe deeply, plan your day out, and decide on the three to five actions that will make your day successful.

2. Take Care of Health
We often take our health for granted until it’s gone. But when it’s gone, it’s extremely difficult to lead a successful life. So add movement into your daily routine, whether with a walk, workout, or playing with your kids. Then, devote the time it takes to prepare and eat healthy, simple food.
Treat your body well and it will reward you back.
3. Connect With Others
Without emotional connection, our lives become meaningless. A successful day includes deep and meaningful conversations with people we care about. Hug your partner, catch up with a friend over a cup of coffee, or play a game with your kids.
We must connect to impact the world around us, so be sure your habits include this step!
4. Be Grateful
Success isn’t only about the output you create. Income and prosperity mean nothing if you can’t appreciate them. So, create a ritual in your day that includes making note of the many simple things you’re thankful for in your life. This one habit alone will surprisingly elevate the level of your days.
5. End the Day Right
As with a good morning routine, a night routine is essential to set you up for success and wind down after a long day. Instead of mindlessly scrolling your phone or watching tv, try reading a great book or taking a bath to end your day. Often, productive days are started the night before.
