10 Simple Daily Habits to Change Your Life 💫

, , 100 Comments


Hi guys! Welcome back to Lavendaire. Today I’m sharing 10 simple daily habits
to change your life. Here’s why habits are so important: You are what you repeatedly do. The habits you do every single day can amount
to big changes in your life. Don’t underestimate the power of
small actions repeated daily over time. These actions add up. You may not notice it day by day, but over months or years, you’ll see the transformation. The good news is these actions are simple
to do and you can start today. Every day is an opportunity for a fresh start. The first daily habit that will change
your life is meditation. Meditating or practicing deep breathing will
ease stress, anxiety, and help you manage your mind. Everybody has time to meditate. The key to being consistent is to not overwhelm
yourself with a high requirement. Make it really easy for you to meditate. Tell yourself to meditate for two minutes
every day and then work up from there. Not only are you taking time to ground yourself
and detach yourself from your worries, deep breathing while meditating gives your body
a chance to rest and rejuvenate. When you breathe, make sure you’re deep breathing into your diaphragm, not just your chest. You can feel the difference if you do this lying down. Fill your lungs with oxygen, let your belly expand, and then hold it in for a couple seconds
and then release. If you’re like me, you can feel overwhelmed
when your space is a mess, but you also feel overwhelmed with all the cleaning you have to do and then you procrastinate. In this case, a habit that will change your life
is to clean for ten minutes each day. Set a timer for ten minutes,
then clean for that allotted time. This breaks down your cleaning into smaller chunks
so it feels manageable. Ten minutes is a short enough time that
you’re confident you can do it and long enough to actually get a lot of cleaning done. And once the ten minutes are up, you’re done. No worries about it. The upside to this is usually once you
get started with cleaning, you’ll want to keep doing it past the ten minutes
since you’re just in that zone. Implementing this habit has really helped me keep my space in order without feeling overwhelmed. The next habit is to create visual cues for what you want
to consistently do more of. For example, placing your workout clothes in plain view
if you want to exercise more, or putting fruit on the counter so you’ll
remember to eat them. I began taking vitamins more consistently after putting them on the table where I normally eat. Because the vitamins are right in front of me, I remember to take them either before or after my meal. By the way, these vitamins are by Ritual and I’d like to thank Ritual for sponsoring today’s video. So when I used to store my vitamins in the cabinet, I realized I always forgot to take them. Out of sight, out of mind. So keeping them at the kitchen table really
helps me take them more consistently. And if you’re curious, Ritual’s Essential
for Women is a multivitamin that helps women get all the nutrients they need. I started taking Ritual vitamins about nine months ago and I like that it’s just two easy-to-take capsules that combines nine nutrients that you need. So you don’t have to take multiple pills
of different vitamins. I also love that it’s vegan. Its omega-3 source is from micro algae and not fish oil, which is what’s commonly recommended. Ritual vitamins are vegan-certified, sugar-free, non-GMO, gluten free, allergen free and sourced
straight from suppliers. If you’re looking to step up your vitamin game, Ritual is offering all Lavi Loves 10% off
your first three months. Just go to ritual.com/lavendaire10 and
enter “Lavendaire” at checkout. The fourth habit is simple: Drink more water. Drinking more water leads to countless benefits like improving your bodily functions, flushing out toxins from your body, preventing headaches, and aiding weight loss. Drinking more water just might be the solution
to your concerns. Want better skin? Drink more water. Mental clarity? More water. More confidence? More water. …maybe. One way to drink more water is to keep
a water bottle near you at all times so you get in the habit of sipping water
throughout the day. There are also water tracking apps that you can use to make sure you’re drinking enough water. And I’ll link below a water calculator
so you can calculate how much water you should drink because it
just depends on a few different factors. Some people swear by drinking warm water with lemon in the morning to ease the digestive system. So I would say give that a try. I always like to drink room temperature water
and order water with no ice when I’m out because it’s easier on the body than
drinking ice cold water. The next habit to change your life is to
practice daily gratitude. Take a moment out of your day to count your blessings and acknowledge what you appreciate about your life. Oftentimes we become too focused on the negative, on what we’re currently struggling with
or what’s going wrong in our lives. Sometimes all we need to feel better about
ourselves is a shift in perspective. Take time to jot down different things that
you’re grateful for. Try to come up with at least five each day. Write it down in your journal or planner and make it a habit to focus on these things
that you have to be grateful for. Release any unmet expectations you’ve had
for yourself or for your life, and focus instead on what you already have. Trade your expectations for appreciation and
I promise it will make all the difference. The sixth habit on our list is one you might
not expect: Sunscreen. Yes, applying sunscreen every single day is
a life changing habit because sun damage is no joke. Exposure to the sun causes premature aging
called photo aging, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, brown spots,
and in worst cases, skin cancer. So if you care about your skin and anti-aging, sunscreen should be your number one priority. A lot of people don’t take sunscreen seriously, but it’s really important to take care of your skin. If you’re brushing this off because
you think it’s purely cosmetic, let me remind you that the health of your skin
can impact your self confidence. And by getting into the habit of applying
daily sunscreen, you’re building your habit of putting effort
into skin care and thus self care. You’ll feel better about yourself as a whole. Another self care habit to do daily is to stretch
and move your body in ways that destress, relax, and improve
circulation in your body. This is essential if you spend most of your time
sitting in the same position all day. The human body is made to move. Do your best to get enough exercise. But since it’s difficult for most people
to exercise every day, at the very least, make it a habit to move
your body in different ways each day. A fun and easy pose I’ve been doing lately,
is legs up the wall pose. I do this on the bed at night for about 10 to 15 minutes
while reading on my iPad. It’s really chill and relaxing and helps me circulate the blood from my feet and legs back to my heart. I’ll be honest, the main reason I started doing this
is to prevent varicose veins, but it turns out it’s really fun to do too. The next daily habit that will change your life is reading. I mentioned how I like to read while doing
the legs up the wall pose, so I knock out two birds with one stone. Reading daily, even a small amount will
add up to a wealth of knowledge that will enhance your life in many ways. It will expand your mind, teach you new knowledge, and make you a more interesting person. The key here is to pick a doable amount
for your daily goal. Maybe it’s ten pages a day or five minutes a day. The point is not to try to read a lot in a day. It’s to be consistent. Do a little a day and let that small action
compound over time. Be patient and you’ll notice the growth. The next day we habit on this list is to
celebrate your wins. We grow more confident in ourselves
when we acknowledge our wins, what we’ve done, and how far we’ve come. Celebrating your wins, no matter how small they may be,
is a way of celebrating yourself. The journey is much more enjoyable if you can learn to celebrate your small victories along the way, rather than thinking you have to struggle
and sacrifice in pain the entire time. This is another way of focusing on the positive and building a healthy relationship with yourself. You build self confidence and self esteem when you acknowledge yourself
and what you can be proud of, You’re cultivating self love and learning
to be your number one supporter. The final habit to change your life is daily visualization
of your goals and dream life. Once you’ve defined your goals and
what your dream life looks like, visualize that dream life in detail. Feel how you would feel as if you’re already there,
living that beautiful life. Do it with such vividness and clarity that you know
exactly what everything looks like, feels like, and smells like. Pay attention to all the details. Doing this each day will allow your mind to get accustomed to the life you desire and through your subconscious and
the law of attraction, you’ll start creating that reality in your present. I shared in my previous video how I made a
Trello board of the details of my dream life and how I would feel in that case. So I looked through this Trello board daily, visualizing and focusing on the feelings that this life gives me, and I realized that the feeling itself is
really all that I’m after. Doing this keeps me focused on what
I’m working towards and even boosts how I feel about my life right now. So out of these ten habits,
which one did you resonate with the most? Which habit will you start putting it into action today? Let me know in the comments below. And if you liked this video, please subscribe for more videos on personal growth and lifestyle design. Also, make sure you click that bell to get

    You definitely are what you repeatedly do! But you’ve been repeating the same things over and over for awhile now on your tip videos.
    I love your personality but it would be nice to see something new.
    Meditation and journaling isn’t a bandaid you can fix every problem with.

    From my experience, drink more water helps a lot, you start to feel more confident, your body works so much better (you can notice it) and also it makes you feel relaxed. And yes, always try to keep your water bottle near to you.💙

    I think the drinking more water, stretching, reading, and gratitude are ones I want to incorporate the most. I’ve actually had the cleaning one as a habit I’m currently working on, and I’ve wanted to incorporate these things for awhile now too.

    I love the idea of "trade expectation for appreciation.💐" This is exactly what I'd like to develop as my dominant attitude😣😂

    I used to enjoy eating citrus fruits in the morning but I was taught from someone who once had worked as a beauty adviser, "Having citrus in the morning can cause spots on your skin."😵 It seems like a substance called psoralen makes it easier to absorb the UV. So now I have them at night. Maybe there's no need to worry too much but just in case😉 I hope this doesn't sound preachy or anything🙏💦 Always grateful for your videos✨ Thanks,Aileen💕

    Everyone speaks about DRINK MORE WATER … I gave it a try because I drink daily 3 or 4 glasses of water (which too low of course) but I tried to drink more which led to peeing more and that was impossible for me! I'm used to go to the to bathroom 2 times a day (maybe it is too low too but idk)… going 5 times a day to the bathroom is awful for me… I gave up on drinking more!

    #2 I've been using that for years. I don't like cleaning, but I say to myself just clean quickly for 10min, 15min, 1 hour max and then you can stop. Don't have to clean all day (many hours).

    Great video! But we are not what we repeatedly do! Tell that to the people in vegative state in coma… They still are essentially. And they don't have any habits. Now habits are good and essential for doing things and eventually to allow ourselves to be.

    I really like Your videos, but I think one thing is not healthy. Well, the sunscreen has a lot of chemicals which are actually causing health problems, like skin cancer! Sun in moderate amounts is amazing for you, your health and skin! We don't need to put chemicals on our bodies, we just need natural food, movement and positive attitude to stay strong and healthy and if we don't disturb to it our skin also will be smooth and beauty! Thank You for an inspiring video. This is just mine opinion, hope it will help You. Of course you can make your own research on the sunscreen topic, and I encourage You to do that 😉 Have a beautiful day!
