7 Essential Habits You Need To Start Now

Habits, bad ones are easy to form but difficult to break, while good ones are difficult to build but easy to break.

Waking Up Early

“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” — Benjamin Franklin

I used to dread waking up early. The thought of getting up at 7 am for school or work used to fill me with my dread.

Eat Healthier

“Those who think they have no time for healthy eating, will sooner or later have to find time for illness.” — Unknown

Recently, I have made a few changes to my diet. I’ve not been happy with what I’ve been eating for a while, and I wanted to do something about it.

Get Back Into Your Body

“The reason I exercise is for the quality of life I enjoy.” — Kenneth H. Cooper

When it comes to your body, you either use it or lose it.

Journaling

“Journaling is like whispering to one’s self and listening at the same time.” — Mina Murray, Dracula

Keeping a journal has been one of my best decisions of recent times.

Don’t Forget To Play

“Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning.” — Diane Ackerman

You’re probably reading this and wondering, “What does he mean by play!?”

Meditating

“Meditation is the only freedom from stress, tension, and anxiety.” — Sadhguru

I used to think meditation was something only Buddhist monks did.

Embrace Change

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” — George Bernard Shaw

Despite being a travel blogger, and spending the majority of the past 5 years in different places, I still struggle with change.
