How to be better in a day?

Tuesday, 6 April 2021

I would like to share a short story that changed my life. - An old man lived in the village. The whole village was tired of him; he was always gloomy, he constantly complained and was always in a bad mood. The longer he lived, the viler he became and more poisonous were his words. People did their best to avoid him because his misfortune was contagious. He created the feeling of unhappiness in others.

But one day, when he turned eighty, an incredible thing happened. Instantly everyone started hearing the rumor: "The old man is happy today, he doesn't complain about anything, smiles, and even his face is freshened up.
The whole village gathered around the man and asked him, "What happened to you?"

The old man replied, "Nothing special. Eighty years I've been chasing happiness and it was useless. And then I decided to live without happiness and just enjoy life. That's why I'm happy now."

Moral of the story: Don't chase happiness. Let's focus on our present and enjoy every little things. Here some daily micro habits that can improve your focus throughout the day.

1. Smile in the mirror every morning

" Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you'll start to see a big difference in your life." - Yoko Ono

 A beautiful smile is a sight to behold, it helps you to boost your self-esteem and confidence. By smiling in the mirror every morning, you will know who is the priority or to focus in a day — it's you. You are the person that you must focus on throughout the day. Your smile is a source of happiness for yourself and those around you. People who start their day off with a smile on their faces will be prepared to take on all of the difficult challenges that the day may bring. Try it first and I promise you will love it.

2. A little workout

Does your mind tend to wander away from where it’s supposed to be? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Distracted thinking is common, and something we all experience. 

Working out at the beginning of the day not only improves your fitness, but also encourages better nutrition, lifts your mood, and makes you more productive in ways an evening workout can't. As Jim Rohn has said, " Take care of your body. It's the only place you live in."

In biology, a little workout (regularly) is one of the most effective ways to reduce the symptoms of ADHD and improve concentration, motivation, memory, and mood. Physical activity immediately boosts the brain's dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin levels — all of which affect focus and attention.

I will recommend you to search on youtube "5 minutes workout." — only 5 minutes, sure you can do it.

3. Prepare your next day the night before

It just too much when you keep all your planning inside your brain. This can make you think a lot and have headaches often. Therefore, organizing what you are planning to do tomorrow before you get to bed or after you finish your last task at night. Thus, you'll hit the ground running when you come in the next day.

If you plan your days the night before by having a to-do list in advance, means you’re less likely to forget even a smaller thing. For example, tidying up where you work. This mean, things should be easier to find and not waste your time searching for it because it's already there — tidy.

All of us have those small habits that often go unnoticed It is because we think that either that small habits insignificant or we take them for granted because we live in a culture that celebrates big accomplishments  — what if we made it a habit to celebrate the small things?

Real-life is happening around us while we’re waiting for the big thing to happen. We usually hope our lives going to give us some sort of inner peace, contentment, or joy. The truth is the things that matter the most are the small ones. The micro habits that we never realize how important regularly doing it can change us to be more focused throughout the day. Good habits have the power to keep you on track. Let's stay focus by doing daily micro habit regularly!
