Here are 10 Daily Habits that you can start adopting this summer to help you achieve your biggest goals!
GET SUPER CLEAR ON YOUR GOALS
Goal setting doesn’t have to be hard. Keep it simple and don’t overthink. Whether it’s a daily goal like drinking enough water throughout the day or a bigger goal like paying off student loans, pinpoint exactly what you want to achieve. This is why the Daily Grind Planner is PERFECTION. The layout specifically, makes it SO easy to narrow down and make your Top 10 Goals a priority every single day. The whole concept of the DG planner eliminates the overwhelm and actually helps you stick to your goals and stay consistent.
ESTABLISH ENERGIZING MORNING ROUTINES
The best thing you can do is start your day off on a good note! Your morning routine totally sets the tone for your day so why wouldn’t you want to prioritize it? Personally, I like to wake up early and get my body moving before I even look at my phone. Jumping right into a yoga session, morning workout, going on a walk, or centering my body in a morning meditation really helps wake up my mind and body simultaneously so I can tackle the rest of the day with good energy.
PRIORITIZE AND PLAN TASKS
You don’t have to go crazy with a complete game plan for the day, but it is important to establish some type of structure for your day to stay on top of your goals. The Daily Grind Planner helps me narrow down 3 needle-movers that become my top priority for each day. This helps me stay focused on what’s most important AND holds me accountable to getting the job done.
MASTER TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS
I know this is easier said than done BUT time management is EVERYTHING! The biggest excuse I hear is that people don’t have enough time to make their goals a priority. I love you guys, but that’s NOT TRUE! If you feel overwhelmed and that there’s not enough time in the day to do it all, take a step back, reassess your priorities, and see how you can shift your routine, even if it’s just a little bit, to give yourself time to prioritize what’s important to you. Whether it’s waking up a few extra minutes, scaling back on time-consuming habits, or even asking for some help so you can take a moment for yourself, there are always options to help you prioritize your time.
SEEK ACCOUNTABILITY AND SUPPORT
One of the things I love the most about our Daily Grind community is that we’re a FAMILY. We have a pretty special group of people who not only use the Daily Grind Planner, but who have become a hub for positivity and motivation. It’s so important to surround yourself with people who lift you up and want the best for you. Your circle MUST be made of people who will support you no matter what - whether that’s family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, or our Daily Grind peeps. We’re all in this together!
TAKE CONSISTENT SMALL STEPS
Consistency is key! If you prioritize showing up for yourself and have the strength to continuously hold yourself accountable, there’s nothing you can’t achieve. Sometimes, we’re the ones who stand in our way of being consistent. Shift that internal doubt to positive self talk and you’ll be surprised how much that little voice in your head impacts your consistency. YOU’VE GOT THIS!
LEARN SOMETHING NEW DAILY
Life’s too short to stay in our comfort zones. Don’t be scared to try new things because, afterall … you never know what new doors it can open for you! You don’t have to go from 0 to 100, but consider starting small by ordering something new the next time you eat out, or taking a different route on your daily walk. Whatever way you try something new, you will 100% learn something new about yourself and that’s pretty cool!
PRACTICE SELF-CARE REGULARLY
I love that there’s so much more emphasis nowadays on self-care. It’s CRUCIAL to take care of ourselves first and foremost. If we don’t, how can we expect ourselves to best take care of anyone or anything else? Finding ways each and every day to care for ourselves and protect our peace is the best thing we can do. Treat yourself with compassion, show yourself some love, and try to do something for yourself every day that puts YOU first and makes YOU happy.
CULTIVATE A POSITIVE MINDSET
Your internal dialogue and the way you speak to yourself creates the narrative for how we approach each and every day. Wake up and set a sweet intention for yourself that’s positive, uplifting and kind. Write down 2-3 things every day that you are grateful for you and note how practicing gratitude flows into an overall more positive mindset. The Daily Grind Planner always carves out a space for you to write down what you’re most grateful or excited for and helps set the tone to enter each day with a positive mindset and a grateful heart.
VISUALIZE SUCCESS AND PROGRESS
I’m sure this doesn’t come as a surprise for those who have been following me for a while, but I LIVE for my vision boards. There is honestly nothing more impactful than visualizing your dreams and making them come true. Create a vision board of your top goals and set it as your desktop or phone wallpaper so that you can physically see the manifestation of your goals EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! It’s amazing to see how far you’ll progress in your goals when you surround yourself with constant visual reminders. Give yourself permission to visualize your success and manifest your dreams!
I hope these tips get you excited to tackle a brand new month ahead and give you the motivation to achieve your BIGGEST GOALS! I am BEYOND excited to crush my summer goals and want you to feel just as confident. I always kickstart my day in the gym to get me energized for the day ahead and I love a good bubble bath and curling up with a good book after my daily grind. Start small by adopting maybe one or two of these daily habits, like establishing an energized morning routine or practicing self-care, to help you stay focused and motivated. However you wish to incorporate these daily habits, I know they will help you absolutely CRUSH your goals!
