#1. Discipline your Screen time:

Mobile phones have become the most essential things in our lives today. They’re the only tools we have to communicate with people for personal and work-related activities.

How to do it:

Set really rigid rules for your smartphone usage.

  1. Set No-Mobile time at mornings after waking up and at evenings at least 2 hours before sleep. This doesn’t disturb your peace state, after waking up and before sleeping.
  2. During your lunch and dinner time, or friends and family time, or at work, put your mobile phone aside. Try to enjoy every delicious bite, sip and moment. Also, encourage your family and friends to do the same.

#2. Prioritise Mental and Physical Health:

You can’t feel healthy and alive in the long run if you don’t inculcate a healthy and happy routine.

How to do it:

  1. Allot at least 30 minutes of time everyday, preferably in the morning, to exercise. Workout in the morning is better than in the evening. It helps you lose more weight, and it also helps you sleep better.
  2. Practice meditation.
    According to a study, 10 minutes of daily mindfulness could reduce mind wandering and negative thoughts especially for people who report high levels of stress. The effects are higher for regular meditators.
  3. If you own a dog, take it for walks to nearby places. It enjoys it, and your bond strengthens. It’s called the ‘Pet Effect’, the mutual relationship between people and animals that positively impacts the health and well-being of both.

#3. Talk Less. You’ll Gain More:

The funny thing about over-talking is that the person doing that doesn’t know he’s doing that, because that becomes his default state. Only a calmer person sitting with him would be able to identify that he’s talking too much.

How to do it:

  1. Notice when you’re over talking. It’s very easy. And that’s the first step to recover.
  2. Observe when you over talk: Do you talk more when you feel shy, when you receive a compliment, when you achieve something, or when you’re helping someone? Introspect, and stay conscious when a similar situation comes again.
  3. When you’re about to talk something, wait for a moment. Ask yourself if it’s really necessary, relevant, and adds value to the conversation. If yes, then continue.

Final Thoughts:

The three tips I suggested you are easier said than done. But when you practice them, for sure they would bring significant improvement in your way of life.
