Checklist of Actions to Take Every Day

We feel successful when we develop daily habits that positively shape who we are and what we stand for.

Here’s a list I’ve compiled of habits you might consider carving out time every day to practice–and then watch what it does for your self-empowerment!

  • Pray/meditate
  • Read/listen to/watch something that is inspirational
  • Exercise/stretch for 20+ minutes
  • Get outside (and utilize a break in the morning and afternoon to do so)
  • Plan what you’ll eat and water amount you will drink in advance
  • Review your personal mission/vision/goals
  • Journal your thoughts/learnings/ideas/progress
  • Determine your top 3 priorities for today and top 3 for tomorrow
  • Connect/express love to your family/friends
  • Reflect with gratitude at day’s end (Check out my Big 5 Before Bed habits)
  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep
  • Do 1 household chore
  • Sincerely thank someone 
  • Learn one new thing
  • Do one random act of kindness

Yes, you literally must calendar these actions to make them happen on a regular basis. Which one will you adopt for the summer?
