Do you know that in order to live a happy and fulfilling life, all you need to do is adopt a few simple habits, and that’s it?
It is a fact that we are conditioned with being optimistic… being happy and positive all the time. We have been enforcing this belief in our minds; I mean a wrong belief on our subconscious mind so much that when we are upset or hurt we start feeling even more demotivated and devastated because we can not meet our brain’s false expectations.
It is a fact that at some point in life we are bound to feel negative, down, and demotivated. And it is absolutely OK to feel like that. So when we are in an emotional roller coaster ride and trying to balance out ourselves, these 10 habits would help the most. These are tried and tested by me! And they work perfectly.
Here Are The 10 Habits That Will Change Your Life
1. Writing in a journal.
Write in two parts in the journal. In one part write down things that you did in a day that made you happy. In another part write down things that made you feel sad and depressed.
Now once you write this part, read it and just cut it off with your pen. You will feel relaxed. By doing so we are not going to erase these ugly things or memories but we are just accepting it to move on from it at the earliest.
2. Maintaining a manifestation or affirmations book.
Now, this is something fancy yet effective. Maintain a book in which you write down things you want to manifest. Write down your dreams. Write down your wishlist here. And in the affirmations book, write down qualities that you want for your self-development.
Make sure you use present tense while writing not present continuous tense or future tense. For e.g. I’m confident. I’m courageous. And feel like you already have it. This has transformed many people’s lives around me including mine!

3. Complimenting on small things.
Compliments never go to waste. Give compliments to people around you.
Be thankful to your mom for sacrificing her dreams for you and your family.
Be thankful to your dad who always tries to treat you like a prince or princess.
Be thankful to your spouse for their unconditional love and fabulous companionship.
Be thankful to friends who had been there for you always.
Be thankful to your siblings for all the little fights that give immense joy and makes the bond stronger.
Be thankful to the universe for helping you out by fulfilling your wishes.
Be thankful to nature for giving you a lot of resources.
Be thankful to your neighbors who cook the delicious dishes on the weekend dinner party.
Be thankful to everyone around you.
Everyone teaches you something so make them happy with simple compliments.
4. Enjoying the little things.
This is something that I had been doing since my childhood. I love enjoying the small things. Let it be the first snowfall or rain. Let it be my Grandma’s kiss. Let it be playing with kids. Let it be getting drenched in the rain with your pets. Let it be gardening and talking to my plants while watering them. Small things often end up giving you more happiness.
This is very important. Self-pampering. Self-care. Self-respect. Self-love should be our habit.
It is said, “Feel guilty for not prioritizing yourself first”. Doing things that you like, like pampering your body becomes a habit if you opt to do these practices daily.
This connects you to your inner self. It just stops your mind chatter. It makes you feel peaceful and also gives you a bonus in the form of mental strength.
Take out at least 15 minutes a day to get connected to your inner voice, and your inner soul.
