Doing a light workout before going to bed can make it easier to relax and go to sleep. Habit 4: Limit checking your phone while working. Limiting the amount that you check your phone while working can be a good habit to increase productivity. Many phones now can be put on Do Not Disturb or work mode to help reinforce the need to check your phone less. Habit 5: Drink a glass of water every hour. Hydration is important to many different aspects of your life! Drinking a glass of water every hour that you are awake will ensure that you get the right amount of hydration. Habit 6: Eating breakfast. Eating breakfast is a good habit to get into. It ensures that you have energy for the day, and it can help you better sustain energy throughout the day. A healthy breakfast with the right amount of protein is best! Habit 7: Practice meditation before beginning to work. Practicing meditation is an excellent habit to get into and doing it before work can help increase productivity. Allowing your brain to un-focus for a bit can help it get into the focus mindset necessary for peak productivity. Habit 8: Make time for friends and family every day. It can be easy to get caught up in work or school and forget to make time for friends and family. Not only is it a great break from work and other parts of your daily routine, but it can also mean a lot to your friends and family that you are spending time with them. Habit 9: Self-affirmations in the mirror before you leave in the morning. Self-affirmations are not just for children! Everyone can benefit from self-affirmations.

Tracking your habits can be the key to success! The more goals you set for habit forming, the more important it is to track those habits. Keep a journal and mark off if or when you’ve done each habit.
