10 Lifestyle Hacks For Girls Who Want To Change Their Life For The Better
Want a bit more from life? Feel as though you’re missing out on something?
Many of us have reached such a crossroads. Tony Robbins, author of Ultimate Power, said that if we keep doing the same things, we can expect the same results.
In other words, to change our life around for the better, we need to leave our comfort zone and do the things we’ve resisted up until now.
Is it possible for anyone to improve their lot in life? Absolutely. The world’s best high achievers are often not people who were born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Instead, they were simply people who wanted success more, and who implemented the right habits.
Habits are key. Just like bad and average habits get us no where in life, good habits can get us everywhere. If you’re prepared to dream and do all that’s in your power to achieve your dream, you can change your life for the better.
Here are 10 lifestyle hacks for girls to start implementing for better results:
How many times have you heard people tell you that naps are for lazy people?
Take a look at who said that. Are they themselves successful or unsuccessful? Chances are, they’re the latter.
The worlds most successful people know how important daily power naps are to success. Just 20-30 minutes of sleep in the afternoon can be enough to recharge your batteries, so that you have more staying power as you go through the day.
When those who don’t nap are collapsing in front of the TV at 8PM, you’re still ready to go for another four hours. Whilst you lose 30 minutes in the afternoon, you gain more in the evening as your mental sharpness increases.
Download The Right Apps
In 2018, there’s literally an app for everything. If you want to succeed in life and be more productive, it’s time to start downloading the right apps and tools that aid your life.
Download scheduling apps, motivational apps, self development apps, project management apps, mind mapping and planner apps, fitness apps, as well as productivity apps. These will help you make the most of your day.
Wake Up Early and Eat Breakfast
Another bad habit unsuccessful people have is that they take any chance to have a lie-in that lifer offers them.
A lie-in occassionally is totally fine. We all deserve that. But if you want to maximise your opportunities and turn your life around, it’s key that you become an early riser.
Rising early gives you more time to work on your goals, while eating a healthy, hearty breakfast sets the right tone for the rest of the day. It fires up your metabolism, puts you in a good mood and keeps you going until lunch. Plus, it can help with weight loss.
Aim for a high protein breakfast, such as scrambled eggs or oatmeal with quinoa.
Be Kind To People
Being kind to others makes people feel good, and it makes you feel good, too. One of the greatest secrets of having an attractive and magnetic personality is to sincerely look for good in people and give them genuine compliments.
Try it; practice kindness and absorb all that amazing, positive energy. Then, use it for whatever else you need to do that day.
Change Your Scenery Now And Then
We grow creatively stale when we’re in the same place all the time. Our imagination is a fertile thing but it needs change to stimulate it. Monotony and routine kills it.
Change your scenery now and then. Go and explore different places of the country. See new things and new people and let them fire up your senses. Get into the habit of going to new places.
Otherwise, you risk falling into stagnation.
Drink More Water
Water is the elixir of life but many of us don’t drink enough of it. Water hydrates us, flushes out toxins and gives us energy.
If you don’t drink enough water, now is the time to start upping your intake. Try to drink at least 5 glasses per day but drink more if you can.
Set Short Term Goals
People who don’t set goals often find that their year wasn’t as fulfilling as they’d have hoped. Something was missing.
Of course, they can’t define what that something was because, without a clear goal, they never knew what it was in the first place.
Set a long term goal and a series of shorter term goals that will bring you closer to your overarching bigger goal.
Be More Productive On Your Phone
This is actually a bit of a double edged sword, because the general rule of thumb is that we should spend less time on our phone if we want to be more productive. However, phones these days can also be forces for good that help us change our lives for the better.
People make money on their phones; they work from their phones, watch inspiring videos from their phones and so on.
It’s not necessary to spend less time on your phone, but instead find ways to be more productive with it. Reduce waste and maximise opportunity.
One of the reasons some of us don’t make the most of life is that we simply don’t have enough energy. We seem to be forever complaining that we’re tired. People ask us to stop being less tired and to do more stuff but we snap at them and say, “I can’t help being tired!”
Here’s the thing – you can.
We use the excuse that we’ve been working 8 hours all day.
Entrepreneurs work almost double that and still have energy to burn.
So what gives?
Diet plays a crucial role. The healthier your diet is, the more energy you’ll have. It’s as simple as that.
If you subsist on junk food, you will burn out by 2pm in the afternoon each day.
Eat lots of fruit and vegetables and stay away from sugar and bad fats. This is simple but very practical advice.
The early bird catches the worm. But it won’t be catching anything on 2 hours sleep. Sleep is so important. It’s when our body’s heal and recharges. Get more beauty sleep so that you feel turbocharged the next day.
