Most of these habits are obviously beneficial to survival on planet Earth so you can probably understand why they’re there. For example, the P, P, L, R pattern shown in the exercise section reflects my Push, Pull, Legs, Rest workout routine.
However, a few of these habits probably have you wondering why they’re valuable daily habits for me. Those are:
Please comment below if you want to know why I choose to keep any of the other daily habits listed here.
“The quality of your life is defined by the quality of your thoughts.” -Marcus Aurelius, 121-180 A.D.
Living daily life and working through a seemingly endless to-do list can feel like going to war. Marcus Aurelius knew a thing or two about that as Roman Emperor during the Marcomannic Wars from 166-180 A.D.
Meditation is a tool that I use to increase the quality of my thoughts. Meditation also helps me respond better to my lower quality thoughts.
Generally, Meditation is important because it helps you reduce stress, increase focus and concentration, and improve overall well-being. It can also help you develop a sense of inner peace and clarity, allowing you to better navigate the ups and downs of life.
Meditation has been shown to have numerous physical and mental health benefits, including reducing blood pressure, boosting the immune system, and increasing feelings of happiness and contentment. It can also help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the world.
By taking time to sit in quiet reflection and mindfulness, you can gain insight into your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and learn how to respond to them in a more mindful and compassionate way.
Overall, meditation is a valuable tool for improving physical and mental health, cultivating self-awareness, and finding inner peace and happiness.
“A Man Is What He Thinks About All Day.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
Manifestation is what’s possible once a consistent meditation practice allows for highly intentional thinking.
How I do it: I intentionally think about (manifest) what I want my future to look like. This changes every day. It usually involves me sitting quietly listening to calming music and allowing my brain to imagine the vision of the future that I am working towards.
Generally, manifesting your vision is important because it helps you clarify your goals and bring them into focus. It helps you stay motivated and focused on achieving your desired outcome, rather than getting sidetracked by distractions or setbacks. Manifesting your vision also helps you tap into your creativity and brainstorm new ideas and solutions. Manifestation allows you to take control of your life and make things happen, rather than just letting life happen to you.
Manifesting your vision also helps you create a roadmap for your future and gives you a sense of purpose and direction. It can also inspire and motivate others to join you in pursuing your vision, creating a sense of community and shared purpose. Overall, manifesting your vision is a powerful tool for personal growth, self-improvement, and success.
In my experience, imagining good things happening in my life not only betters my mood but increases the chances that those good things will happen.
If it isn’t obvious by now, writing is something that I enjoy. Thus, I’ve included writing in my daily habits.
Generally, writing is a healthy habit because it allows you to express your thoughts and feelings in a safe and controlled way. It can be a therapeutic outlet for processing and managing emotions, particularly during times of stress or challenge. Writing can also help you clarify your thoughts and ideas, and can be a useful tool for problem-solving and decision-making. In addition to its mental health benefits, writing has been shown to have physical health benefits as well. It can reduce feelings of anxiety and depression, and has been linked to improved immune function and reduced risk of chronic illness.
Writing can be a creative outlet and a way to tap into your imagination and explore new ideas. It can be a fun and rewarding hobby that helps you relax and unwind after a busy day. Overall, writing is a healthy habit that can improve your mental and physical well-being and provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment.
Journaling is a very helpful form of writing that allows me to release both positive and negative thoughts in order to process them further and act on my thoughts more intentionally.
