Highly successful people are disciplined by nature as they understand the benefits of making short-term sacrifices in order to achieve long-term gains. Below are a few habits that successful people have adopted in order to maintain their mental and physical well-being on a daily basis.
1. They Drink Lemon Water
Drinking lemon water the moment you wake up helps to increase your energy levels, both mentally and physically as it improves the nutrient absorption in your stomach. Lemons are also full of wonderful nutrients such as potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants which assist in keeping you energised for the day and help keep your immune system in check.
2. They Exercise
People who exercise a few days a week generally have more energy and maintain a more positive outlook on life. Exercise helps reduce stress levels and creates a sense of accomplishment as putting in that extra effort in every area of your life soon becomes routine.
3. They Eat Well
A healthy breakfast helps to facilitate a more productive day by giving you the energy needed to sustain you throughout the day. It also leaves you feeling less hungry, thus improving your concentration levels and short-term memory.
4. They Disconnect
Having some quiet time to yourself in the morning allows you to set the tone for the day and visualize what you'd like to achieve. This helps to maintain your day's focus and creates a sense of calm before entering a buzzing office.
5. They Practice Mindfulness
Mindful meditation has become an increasingly popular practice around successful CEOs. Being mindful is achieved by being present while acknowledging and accepting one's present feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations. This technique helps to alleviate stress and boosts creativity which results in increased productivity and overall well-being.
6. They Set Daily Goals
Benjamin Franklin would wake up at 4 am every day and meticulously plan his daily schedule by determining his daily goals and planning how he would achieve them. Planning each day increases the likelihood of you successfully accomplishing your daily goals.
7. They Say No
Saying no to new commitments helps you to honour your existing commitments. People that have the ability to say no also experience less stress, burnout and even depression as they are able to stay true to themselves and spend less time worrying about making unnecessary decisions.
The key to being successful is being able to bring it all together in the end and eventually finding out what combination works for you.
