Top Ten Personal Habits

Copyright (c) 2009-2014

Successful people have a regular routine of daily or weekly habits that reinforce the things that are most important to them. By practicing a set of personal success habits, they maintain a positive outlook, keep focused on their priorities, have more energy, and a greater sense of satisfaction with life.

As you read this list of the top ten personal habits, you might think that most of these are nothing new. And you're probably right. These are pretty basic habits - not rocket science. The key to personal success habits is that you do them consistently.

How many of these habits do you do on a regular basis?

Eat Well.

Practice the 80/20 rule. Eighty percent of the time, make very good nutritional choices. The rest of the time go ahead and indulge yourself.

Exercise.

Move it or lose it. Choose physical activities that you love keeping in mind that a well balanced exercise program includes flexibility, strength and cardio components.

Practice Personal Reflection.

In quiet moments you are more able to hear your true self speaking. Take time to create a regular practice of reflection through meditation, journaling or prayer.

Volunteer.

Connect with your local or global community to contribute your time, energy, and/or resources. You get to feel good making a difference and others reap the benefits. We're all part of the same interconnected world.

Get Enough Sleep.

Most people are in a state of sleep deprivation. During sleep your body rests and repairs itself so you are better able to take on the joys and challenges of life.

Declutter Physically and Emotionally.

Clutter depletes your energy. Regularly sort through and get rid of stuff that is getting in your way. This includes relationships that are no longer satisfying and fulfilling.

Create A Success Circle.

Surround yourself with people who will support, encourage and challenge you to be your best. These are the people you can go to for brainstorming, advice or a good old kick in the pants when you need it.

Listen To Music.

Music has the power to relax, entertain and heal. Build your music library and use it to support your other success habits.

Indulge Your Creativity.

Besides being a way to express yourself, creativity increases your problem solving abilities. You can explore your creative self not only through the arts, but also through activities such as cooking, gardening, photography or decorating.

Read.

Expand your mind with both fiction and nonfiction books. Even if you are not a "book" person, you can still get the same intellectual stimulation through audio books.
