8 Simple Self Improvement Principles

personal development is a lifelong
process but it doesn’t have to take youmore than a few minutes to start
improving yourself if you’re familiarwith the two-minute rule you know that
any big goal can be broken down intosmaller tasks some of these small tasks
take less than 2 minutes to accomplishbut they are likely to get you moving
towards your larger goals and ambitionsjust take 2 minutes out of your day
after you watch this video of course tocomplete one of these tasks to improve
your overall well-beingnumber one is pretty simple it’s drink
more water a glass of water may seemlike the smallest of baby steps towards
self-improvement but it’s still a stepforward we often neglect the
recommendation to drink 8 glasses ofwater each day your body needs water to
maintain bodily functions and keep youhealthy
also dehydration may cause headachesfatigue or problems with your skin and a
lot of people are actually dehydratedand they just don’t know it so drinking
eight glasses a day isn’t easy if you’renot thinking about it so don’t be afraid
to congratulate yourself when you’veactually achieved eight glasses a day I
personally keep a full glass of waternear my desk at all time and I’ll drink
like crazy all day I drink a bunch ofwater the secret is to keep the glass of
water full and you also have to use apretty large glass of water it’s a
psychological trick called theavailability bias that makes your brain
think hey there’s a bunch of water therewe should drink some water a downside of
this is that you have to go to thebathroom quite a bit more but it really
makes a substantial difference on yourproductivity and your energy levels
number two is to eat Whole Foods as ageneral rule the fewer the ingredients
the more nourishing the food if you wantto have more energy and feel better
throughout the day swap out someprocessed meals for Whole Foods you can
enjoy things like fruits vegetables eggsand nuts just things that you can
actually pronounce cut down on chemicalsdyes and other ingredients that you
can’t pronounce I suggest taking a lookat your next meal how many ingredients
can you actually identify if you don’tknow what you’re eating you’re more
likely to ingest something that willmake you feel sluggish and unproductive
throughout the day I know this is likeone of the most basic but you can really
improve how you feel just by makingsmall changes in what you eat so let’s
move on the number three practice dailygratitude I know you guys hear this from
me a lot but positivity and gratitudereally help to melt away your stress
even when you feel that you are down andan attitude of gratitude can show you
the light and keep you from feeling thatyou’ve hit the bottom with a clear and
grateful mind you will be more likely tomove forward it’s been proven
I am in time again that people that areprimed with gratitude are more likely to
reach their goals for some peoplegratitude is a difficult thing but
something you can start doing is keepinga small journal next to your bed
whenever you go to sleep and rightbefore you go to bed write down
everything on a single page you weregrateful for that name as the nights
pass you’ll soon have an entire notebookfilled up with gratitude once you learn
the power of the law of attractionsomething I’ve talked about in other
videos and the neuroscience of thereticular activating system something
I’ll talk about in psychology of beliefsyou will start to understand how truly
important having a positive and gratefulmind is for becoming successful it’s
actually crazy how many research studiescan hold this down number four is to
pick up a bookI also recommend cutting down on some
screen time and opening your mind with agood book you can always learn something
from reading even if it’s just a newvocabulary word Irie ders and Kindles
make it easier than ever to carry aroundthe knowledge of the universe while you
travel or you curl up on the couch oreven when you’re going to the bathroom
maybe you don’t have two minutes to reada whole book well take two minutes to
get some recommendations from yourfriends and family members all it takes
is a quick click online to queue up somebooks on your tablet when the books are
waiting for you you’re more likely toactually read them again I do the same
thing that I do with the water using theavailability bias I keep lots of books
around me so I’m more tempted to learnfrom them and actually read them in fact
right now I have four personalitytextbooks on my desk because right now
I’m doing some research for a futurepersonality psychology series on this
channel leave a comment below if you’dwatch that series number five is
something I’ve started doing recentlyand it’s just listened to a TED talk
maybe you prefer consuming inspirationwith audio you can hop online on YouTube
and learn from great speakers in avariety of different fields if you don’t
know what to watch first watch some TEDTalks
if you have a specific subject that youwant to learn about maybe it’s
psychology you’ll probably be able tofind a TED talk on it if you’re open to
anything you can really explore a wholeworlds worth of different subjects with
Ted from happiness to urban planning tobiology it’s actually crazy how many
videos they have I personally have beenwatching a ton of material on
personality psychology again in factthere’s actually a couple of colleges
and universities out there thatliterally record their entire lectures
of the semester and upload them if youknow how to find them number six is to
forgive someone now we’ve all been avictim of wrongdoing at some point in
our lives we’ve all made mistakes justas you would probably like people to
forgivewe have to work on forgiving other
people even if they haven’t directlyasked for it forgiveness is a small
gesture that doesn’t just benefit theperson who did you wrong when you let go
of a grudge you also let go of thestress the anxiety and the other
negative feelings that you had thatyou’ve been cleaning on to for a long
time I recently finished my premiumonline course titled a psychology of
beliefs and after doing some researchand coming up with around 2 hours of
meaningful content you start to realizethe severe consequences to your mindset
if you start to hold grudges if you wantmore information on this course the
psychology of beliefs stick aroundthrough the end of this video number 7
is to join a group of supportiveindividuals now it might feel hard or
difficult to accomplish your dreamsalone and in fact it probably is words
of encouragement and additionalresources can help you find
opportunities and boost your mood andgive you more motivation but where do
you find a group that is willing tosupport your journey well think about
the group that you want to join and hoponline meetup and Facebook are two great
sources to find supportive communitiesand events meetup if you’ve never heard
of it before allows you to searchthrough different events based on your
occupation your interests or yourcommunity that you identify with they
help you set up meets in your local areado you want to meet up with fellow
writers in Philadelphia maybe realestate investors in Austin well you’re
likely to find a group that fits yourneeds on meetup and also Facebook groups
are becoming a more popular way to reachout to like-minded people and connect
with themthese groups are often run by experts in
their field who offer courses andresources but the group’s sometimes are
free you can also search for physicalevents to attend through through these
groups and lastly in theself-development community we’re really
hard on ourselves on always trying tofind continual improvement but number 8
on this list is to congratulate yourselffor this growth so will you plan to take
some time today and complete maybe oneof these tips that I’ve suggested well
if you do don’t forget to rewardyourself

when that reinforcement comes fromwithin I suggest to take a moment of
this day and reflect on the ways thatyou’ve improved your overall well-being
