5 Micro-Habits that Will Change Your Life

Find out how micro-habits can change your life and learn to introduce them in your routine.

Developing healthy micro-habits is one of the best ways to transform your life without much effort. In fact, did you know that 40% of our actions are represented by habits? The little things we do on a daily basis have a huge impact on our lives, and sometimes we don’t even realize it.

When we want to improve our lives, we often think about making dramatic changes. However, it’s difficult to make big changes overnight, and it’s even harder to stick to this new lifestyle.

So, instead of trying to dramatically change your life in a short period of time, I suggest you start small. Introduce some micro-habits to your routine, and you will be amazed at how meaningful they are in the long run.

Let’s take a look at five micro-habits you can start today:

Drink More Water

You’ve heard it before, and you will hear it again—staying hydrated is vital for your health.

While drinking water is such a simple and beneficial thing to do, many of us are guilty of not drinking enough on a daily basis.

So, to change this, there are a few micro-habits you can introduce to your routine.

For example, start your morning with a big glass of water. Among other benefits, it helps you rehydrate your body, fuel your brain, and get rid of toxins in your body

Another thing you can do to make sure you drink more water is to always have a glass or a bottle of water next to you. It will act as a reminder to stay hydrated. Also, you will be able to sip on water while working or running other errands without taking a break from what you are doing.

Read for 15 Minutes Every Day

Would you like to read more, but you just can’t find the time?

Reading is an amazing habit to have, as it brings so many benefits to our lives. It stimulates our brain, reduces stress, and improves our knowledge. Introducing this habit to our daily routine can be life-changing.

Contrary to what many people believe, reading doesn’t have to take a lot of time. While it’s great to get lost in a book and read for hours, most of us don’t have time to do that often. That doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be reading.

You can start reading more by dedicating a few minutes to this activity every day. For example, you can read for 15 minutes while drinking your coffee in the morning. Alternatively, you can read for a few minutes each night before going to bed. 

Eat Vegetables with Every Meal

Would you like to have a healthier diet?

When we think about making changes to our diet, most of us think about drastic changes that would dramatically change our eating habits. However, when we try to make big changes overnight, it usually leads to failure. A smarter and more efficient way to change our eating habits is to make small changes gradually.

Eating more vegetables is a great starting point. Vegetables have a great positive impact on our health, from strengthening our immune system to improving our skin

So, a great way to make sure you eat more veggies is to add one (or more) vegetables to every meal. 

Once you get used to this, you can add more healthy eating habits to your routine.

Write Things Down

Do you often forget things? It’s perfectly normal.

That’s why I advise you to start writing everything down. From spontaneous ideas you have to every appointment you make, everything should be written on your agenda. Thinking that you don’t need to write things down because you will remember them is a trap. 

This simple habit will help you become more organized and will eliminate the stress of forgetting things. It only takes a few seconds to write things down, so give it a try.

If you’re not into carrying an agenda with you wherever you go, you can use your phone for notes. Make separate lists for everything you want to remember—appointments, shopping lists, tasks, ideas, books, or quotes. Write down even the silly or unimportant things. You never know when they will come in handy.

Practice Mindful Eating

Do you usually scroll down on social media or watch a TV show while eating?

If the answer is yes, I have bad news for you—it is not good for your health.

First of all, you’re not paying attention to what you are eating, so you often end up eating more than you need.

Secondly, you’re not fully enjoying the process of feeding your body.

Eating a meal usually takes up to 15 minutes, so try to spend this time eating mindfully. Pay attention to what you are eating, and enjoy this activity.

Final Thoughts

You don’t need to completely change your habits to improve your life. Small changes can transform your life in the long run, and adding healthy micro-habits to your routine requires little effort.
