If you want to improve your lifestyle then you should adopt these 7 habits for a better life.

Drink a big glass of water

The first thing that you should do is get out of bed, go to the kitchen and have a big glass of water. When you wake up your body is in a state of dehydration. No water has entered your body for the past eight to nine hours so you need to hydrate.

Drinking 16 ounces of water in the morning fires up your metabolism, it removes toxins within your blood, it improves your skin and it even feeds your brain, as your brain is 75% water.

Have a cold shower

Head to the bathroom and have a shower but it’s not a regular shower, it’s a cold shower. There are several cold showers benefits such as increased libido, reduced stress, and an improved immune system.

But one of the biggest benefits noted through scientific studies is that your willpower actually improves. Let’s look at willpower like it’s a muscle. In order to get a big strong muscle, you need to train it on a consistent basis. So doing something that you don’t want to do every single morning will strengthen your willpower muscle and over time it will grow stronger.

Show gratitude

The next thing you should do is to sit in a chair, ideally facing the sun, and you should think about three things that you are grateful for. One of the best ways to put yourself in a great mood for the day is to show gratitude.

The fascinating thing about gratitude is that you cannot be depressed and grateful at the same time. You also cannot be angry and grateful at the same time. Showing gratitude is kind of like a cheat code for immediately feeling better.

People are often focused on mastering the external world through focusing on their career, money, girls, cars but often times people forget to try and maximize the internal world and this is why we still see people who are very depressed but who are also very rich and famous. These people have conquered the external world but they have been completely ignoring the internal world and you need to master both in order to live a fulfilled life.


The next thing you should do is meditate for 10 minutes. Meditating just gives me a sense of calmness and peace for the day ahead of me. Many people operate at levels of extreme emotions where they are depressed and sad for a moment then five minutes later they are incredibly happy and joyful. You typically want to surround yourself with people who stay at an even baseline as these extreme people will exhaust you mentally and emotionally.

Create a to-do list

The next thing that you should do is create a to-do list for the day. You don’t have to plan out every second of my day but you write down things that you want to accomplish for the day, such as finishing writing a script for a YouTube video, or complete an hour-long work out in the gym, or simply clean the kitchen.

When you write things down in the morning you are much more likely to get them done. It also helps to stay accountable. At the end of the day when you cross off everything that you’ve completed, it gives you a sense of accomplishment which for me personally is a great feeling. Similar to how the cold showers will train your willpower muscles, creating and completing a to-do list will train your get stuff done muscles and the get stuff done muscle is a muscle that a lot of people forget to train. And it’s arguably one of the most important muscles that you can develop within your life.

Workout in morning

Getting your work out done first thing in the morning just makes me feel that much better for the upcoming day. It’s certainly to work out every single morning. I think working out in the middle of the day can be very beneficial, as well, especially if you use it as a break. So this one we would recommend just experimenting with and see what works for you.

No coffee in the morning

The reason why you should not drink coffee is that it’s a stimulant. I don’t like the idea of having to rely on a potent stimulant every single morning in order to get energy. The reason why coffee drinkers experience headaches when they stop drinking coffee is that they’re actually experiencing some withdrawals because to some extent their bodies are addicted to that stimulant. However, we are not saying don’t drink coffee. We know there are a lot of health and cognitive benefits to it. But what we would invite you to do is to do a little bit of research on it, especially when it comes to something called your adrenal glands.
