Your day starts here:
1. Wake-up early morning, Every day! One very significant benefit of waking up early is reduced stress level. When you rise early, it eliminates the need to rush in the morning. You can then start your day on an optimistic note and such positivity often stays with you throughout the day. Early risers often go to bed early. Having a predictable sleep routine ensures that your skin gets proper time to rejuvenate.
2. Have a lemonade as soon as you wake up:
Drinking lemon juice with warm water every morning helps in maintaining the pH balance of the body. It promotes hydration, supports weight loss, improves your skin quality, aids digestion, freshens breath and helps prevent kidney stones. Lemon juice with warm water is also good for your dental health as it helps with a toothache and prevents gingivitis.
3. Meditate (15 mins):
If you think you are too busy to do that, you might not be busier than this American billionaire investor, hedge fund manager, and the founder of investment firm Bridgewater Associates, one of the world's largest hedge funds. As of January 2018. He said in an interview and I quote “ Meditation opens two sides of the brains and allows spontaneity, creativity and open-mindedness and escapes emotional hijacking, It’s the biggest gift for me and out of my busy daily routine I do it 20 mins meditation twice in a day”. He is one of the world's 100 wealthiest people and this habit has enormous potential.
4. Read one finance newspaper, Every day (Even if you don’t understand the terms for a few weeks).
Generally when you read any regular newspaper, mostly it comes up with disturbing news in the morning itself which is actually not good for your health but In case you opt for a financial newspaper, it gives you the opportunity to stay ahead with money matters. Everything you read fills your head with new bits of information, and you never know when it might come in handy. The more knowledge you have, the better equipped you are to tackle any financial challenge you’ll ever face.
5. Take out 5 minutes time and make your day plan.
It can be anything like, I have to accomplish this task today. it helps your mind to concentrate in a particular direction which will result in less energy loss. It’s also about ensuring you spend your time where it matters most to you.“Time management shouldn’t take your time, but rather make extra time for you.”
6. Take 5 mins gap every hour, roam around and then & Continue.
Not surprisingly, sitting for extended periods of time is not good for health. So, Try the “Pomodoro Technique” and take a 5 min break once you complete one small task.
7. Learn Something new every day.
Studies revealed that learning makes you more interesting to others. In this era of the social network, most of us have a common pass time like facebook, twitter etc but there is a lot more to learn new things than just making the brain stronger. The act of learning actually makes us happier. It can be a language or coding or swimming or play tennis etc anything which is not a part of your core job. I trade from 9.15 to 3.30 in the Stock Market and learn something new everyday.
Here is what happens when you learn something every day:You experience something new.The “novelty centre” of your brain is activated.You get a rush of dopamine. (Dopamine motivates you to follow through with the new thing.)You get another rush of dopamine when you finish the activity.
8. Be ‘Perfect’ in money management:
It doesn’t matter how much you earn, It matters how to manage it to play a vital role to help your future-self. I know one uncle, he lives near my house and he has been earning massive salary since the time I was a boy. Still, a few days back I went to him to discuss his investments, I found that he doesn’t have any SIP or insurance cover or equity investment etc, he paid unnecessary taxes without getting benefits of any sections. He has spare money locked in FD.
Take out some money to invest in stocks (In case you are young). If you have less know ‘How to invest’ or ‘How to analyse a company before investing’ then you can also learn. Some of the Bluechip companies delivered 100% returns in less than 5 years. Ex- TCS, RIL etc. You can also get some help from certified experts at Equityboxx.
Don’t forget to put some money on Mutual funds.
Put some emergency funds in savings acc or RD or FD because it takes t+2 days to take out your money from MF or Stocks.
9. Hit the gym once you are done with your day job.
You must do it without fail. Regular disciplined training at the gym helps your muscles, ligaments, joints and tendons remain in good shape, which will make you stronger and more flexible. You may lower your risk of falling or fracturing your hip, which may negatively impact your life, especially in your older years.
10. Give sufficient time to your family.
Its benefits can’t be explained in words. You can replace to job, computer, house, boss but your family is a gift that can’t be replaced with anything.
11. Sleep at least 6 hours a day.
A good night's sleep is incredibly important for your health. In fact, it’s just as important as all above. because Good Sleepers tend to eat fewer calories and it Improves your immune function. You'll be happier, able to build muscle more easily, less likely to make risky financial decisions, spend less time and money at the doctor, prevent migraines and other headaches, more productive at work and more focused at home and you'll be less easily irritated or upset.
So, doing all these things in a day you are living two lives in a day. One your always wanted to live and second, you were already living.
