Better Habits

Habits are the small decisions you make and actions you perform every day. 

James Clear, author of Atomic Habits writes on his website that “Your life today is essentially the sum of your habits. How in shape or out of shape you are? A result of your habits. How happy or unhappy you are? A result of your habits. How successful or unsuccessful you are? A result of your habits.”

Generally speaking, who you are today can be traced to what your habits are.

Want to live a healthier lifestyle? Learn and implement good health habits.

Want to become better in client management? Learn and implement good client management habits.

Want to become really good at asking thoughtful questions at work and in school? Learn and implement good inquisitive habits.

Our habits are our secret authentic superpowers. If we want to achieve our goals and visions, we need to have the best habits in place and not only rely on daily motivation, discipline, and will. Habits will take us further than we tend to realize. Establishing better habits early in our development years (health habits, financial habits, social habits, and more) is key to living our authentic greatness!

Sun. Light. Power.

Sunlight is very important for us and provides many benefits.

The benefits of sunlight are:

Sleep at night. Early morning sunlight in particular seems to help people get to sleep at night. 

Weight loss. Morning light also seems to help people keep the fat off.

Boosting serotonin. Sunlight helps boost a chemical in our brain called serotonin which can give us more energy, be positive, and focused. Higher levels of serotonin correlate with better mood and feelings of satisfaction and calmness, and lower levels link to depression and anxiety.

Eye health. Moderate amounts of sun over one’s lifetime helps to maintain good eye health.
