3 Simple Habits That Will Make You More Successful

March 8, 2018

Career Advice

This isn’t a get rich quick scheme–we promise! But these habits are free, simple, and fairly quick. With just a little bit of effort each day, these positive habits can become a regular part of your life. Try to incorporate one–or all three–into your routine for the next seven days and see what happens.

  1. Read.
    Reading expands your mind! Pick up a book just for fun. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a business book, a self-help book, or a fiction novel. Take 30 minutes every day to commit to reading in the morning, on your lunch break, or before bed. If you can’t find the time, assess how much of your free time you’re spending on social media or watching TV. We bet there’s some wiggle room there. Set a goal like one book per month that will keep you motivated.
  2. Drink water.
    Have you heard? Water is so good for you! And it’s free! Your body needs to be properly hydrated to stay happy and healthy. Drinking water has other benefits too. Think about it: the more water you drink hopefully the less caffeine you’ll intake. And if you consistently stay hydrated it can help stave off unneeded hunger pangs, which means you could lose some weight in the process. Not bad!
  3. Exercise.
    We know, we know. You’ve heard this a million times. But the benefits of exercise are unparalleled. Not only will it keep you healthy and prevent sore muscles, but working out can also boost your mood and your productivity. Make a concerted effort to find out what works for you. Even a 15 minute walk twice a day can have huge benefits. Start a new routine by going for a walk with coworkers after lunch or family members after dinner.
