We are the sum of our habits.
Our subconscious habitual decisions are what drive our lives.
All these little things; like whether we eat breakfast or not, we go to the gym, or rush to work, these habits impact the rest of our day.
A question then worth asking: Are our habits engineered towards happiness?
I think this is a fascinating topic, what I did last year was sit down and work on what do I do on my best days.
This came down to:
- A good breakfast
- Catching up with friends or peers
- Eating well
- Focused at work, satisfied with what I worked on today
- A bit of exercise
- Quality time with my wife
- Doing all the little errands or tidy ups, so that I don’t think about them
When I have those in my day, it’s a great day.
And now it’s ingrained into everyday routine.
So it’s worth asking yourself – what things do I do that create a banger of a day?
