Are you looking to change yourself for the better? You may want to begin by changing your daily habits. Studies have shown that it takes an average of 66 days to incorporate a new habit into your life.
Remember that it will be a struggle at first. But eventually, incorporating good habits into your life will make you happier, healthier, and more successful overall. Here are 50 habits that will dramatically improve your daily life.
50. Wake Up Early
There is a famous quote from Benjamin Franklin: “Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise.” Sure, it sounds corny. But it’s actually very true. If you make sure that you have eight hours of sleep per night and go to bed at a reasonable hour, you’ll find that you become far more productive throughout your day. If you wake up with the sunrise, you’ll be shocked to see just how much you can accomplish in 24 hours.
Night owls try to make the argument that they can be equally as productive with a different sleeping schedule. But studies have shown that if you spend more time awake in the darkness, it can lead to depression. And according to scientific research, working the night shift can shorten your life expectancy. If you find that you struggle to get things done throughout your day, it may be that you aren’t waking up early enough. If you struggle to wake up early, try to reduce or completely eliminate your caffeine intake in the afternoon. It will take time to correct your sleep schedule, but it will make a massive difference in your mental and physical health.
