Just like an ocean is filled by drops of water, larger goals are achieved by doing a little everyday.
The importance of daily rituals in our lives is as essential as breathing. The human body responds well if it is in a continuous system i.e. habit of doing something. After trying and testing myself, I have found following daily rituals which are absolutely essential for a productive and happy life.
The fact that the human body is made up of 70 % water, justifies the habit of hydrating yourselves. Drinking 2 litres of water in a day is sufficient.
Exercising is like a fuel for the body. Every damn day workout! The rush of blood in your body and the feeling of oxygen getting supplied to every muscle, gives you motivation to exercise daily.
Meditation is like a fuel for the mind. Meditation gives you moments to be with your self. While meditating, the mind enters a state of calm.
4. TO-DO LIST
Telling the brain about what tasks are on your plate will increase the chances of it getting done. The list should comprise of the tasks that can be accomplished in a day. Start with a task or two and feel the satisfaction after getting it done. Eventually it will become a habit.
Nowadays most of us have become a content consumer. This stops the functioning of creative centers of our brain and eventually makes us dull. A small amount of creation each day (it can be anything) will boost the brain and will make you feel more in control of your mind.
We tend to put this in the bottom of our priority list but it should ideally be at the top. When we take care of ourselves, we function better. It is not selfish to take out time for yourself everyday rather it is essential.
Reading takes you to another world of imagination. The insights you get from author are sometimes eye-opening. A lot of positivity enters your body if you read a good book.
All the daily rituals are directed towards you being able to work efficiently. A little amount of work but consistently is also rewarding. The key is to keep going no matter what.
For long working hours, your body needs something that keeps it going. If you feel tired you tend to shut the work and go towards the social media/distractions. Thus keep a booster like nuts, or a refreshing drink that can energize you instantly.
These were a few rituals which I find helpful. You can optimize it according to your goals.
