Top 10 Habits That Enhance Your Mood and Your Success

  Your daily rituals ultimately determine the quality of your life. Happy and successful people do different things each day than the average person. And they do those things consistently. This is great news! A few small changes can transform your life, but patience is required. Instead of focusing on big changes, consider making a few minor adjustments.   The odds of successfully making a change is much higher when that change is small.   Effective habits result in a more productive life:   1.      Make yourself a priority. We’ve all been taught to worry about others. Self-sacrifice is viewed as altruistic and noble. But you’re important, too. Give your emotional and physical health the priority it deserves. You’ll then be in a better position to help yourself and others. 2.      Set one or more goals each day. If you don’t have an objective for the day, you’re much less likely to make the most of it.

All of them had similar approaches, although their techniques might have been a little different. I also was trying to find motivational speakers, particularly women in recovery, and I didn't see many actually; I didn't find any that I could identify with. So as I started learni

I cultivate a sound mind through daily activities

 My sanity relies on me having balance each day. I cultivate a sound mind by keeping it engaged and stimulated.  I love to explore the world around me. I always incorporate exploration in my day, even for just a short while. Visiting a new place or learning about something new is healthy. It maintains my sense of wonder and keeps my brain active. Whether that is checking out a new restaurant, taking a different route home from work, or what have you.   Taking myself away from the rigors of work is beneficial. I avoid allowing work to consume my time. Taking breaks throughout the day to just get up, move, and stretch helps immensely.   My lunch break is spent outside the office. I benefit greatly from introducing a new environment. It allows me to clear my head of the issues at work and return with a fresh mind. I am able to resolve issues when I step away from them for a while.   Exercise is essential to both my body and mind. It keeps me physically fit and also releases e
