  • Hey, Psych2Goers, and welcome back to another video.

  • Thank you so much for being here.

  • With your help and support, we're able to succeed in our mission to make mental health and psychology more accessible to everyone.

  • So, thanks again.

  • Now let's get into it.

  • Are you feeling a little lost in life?

  • Are things feeling stagnant and unmoving, like you're not progressing towards any of your life goals?

  • Do you feel like you're just repeating the same routine day after day with nothing to show for it?

  • Nowadays life is primarily centered around working a good ol' nine-to-five job, or if you're still in school, studies and assignments.

  • And this takes up so much of your time

  • so it's perfectly normal to feel like you're stuck, and that's okay.

  • The important part is to take action whenever you feel like things aren't going the right way or when they're not going anywhere at all.

  • So here are five small habits that have the power to change your life around.

  • Number one, write down three things that you're grateful for.

  • Has something ever happened that was really important?

  • And you wanted to remember it but then you didn't write it down, then so you wound up completely forgetting about it.

  • And you simply can't rely on your memory to store every important aspect and moment of your life.

  • Time passes and you might forget about some of the important things or the things to be grateful for.

  • Writing down things you're grateful for will help you foster gratitude and allows you to think back on what's happened in your life.

  • Helping to shift your perspective.

  • Studies show that fostering gratitude will help you sleep better at night, lower your stress levels, and improve your interpersonal relationships.

  • Taking up the habit of writing down three things you're grateful for in a gratitude journal will create nothing but positive change in your life.

  • Number two, clean for 10 minutes each day.

  • Have you ever felt overwhelmed with the thought of cleaning your apartment or your room because of how much time it's going to take?

  • Well, to avoid feeling overwhelmed, it's best to break down your tasks into smaller portions in order to make it feel more manageable and doable.

  • 10 minutes is a reasonable amount of time to devote to cleaning.

  • It inspires confidence that you can do it.

  • And it's also enough time for you to get something small done.

  • Try folding and hanging your clothes first and then moving on and coming back to your room to sweep or vacuum for 10 minutes.

  • If your apartment just feels too big to clean all at once, try and start with one room at a time, like in the kitchen doing dishes or in the living room to straighten up the couch.

  • If you can get something small done in 10 minutes, you'll be that much closer to getting everything done in a timely fashion.

  • Number three, take care of your skin.

  • Does your confidence take a hit whenever you're upset about your dry skin in the winter or have a bad breakout?

  • Believe it or not, the way your skin looks can be directly related to how you're feeling and vice versa.

  • According to dermatologist and clinical psychologist Richard G. Fried, inflamed skin, thinning hair, and brittle nails can be physical manifestations of your mental state.

  • These unwanted physical changes can have a negative impact on how you feel.

  • This will further worsen your skin, hair, and nails, and create a vicious cycle.

  • This is one of the main reasons why taking care of your skin is so important since it helps to foster a strong emotional state with high levels of confidence and a strong and positive outlook on life.

  • Number four, implement the 80/20 principle.

  • The 80/20 principle was first observed in the 1800s by an economist named Wilfredo Pareto.

  • He noted that 80% of the land in his home country was owned by 20% of the population.

  • This principle holds true nearly 200 years later and can even be applied to different topics such as business or athletics.

  • Are you wondering if this principle can be applied to your life and how?

  • Well, it's been found that 80% of your success will come from just 20% of your work.

  • This means that 80% of what you do will be unimportant or irrelevant to your success.

  • The main point of applying the 80/20 principle into your life is that you identify that 20% of the things that you do actually result in success.

  • A simple way of identifying the 20% is by making a to-do list with your most important tasks at the top, and the least important at the bottom.

  • Finally, cross out 80% of your tasks from the bottom so that you're only left with the top 20%.

  • By doing this, you will improve your productivity and efficiency by focusing all of your efforts on the tasks that will actually yield success.

  • Number five, implement effective daily routines.

  • Do you happen to wake up in the morning feeling tired and unmotivated?

  • This can be a telling sign that your daily routines are not working properly or effectively for you.

  • Daily routines are broken down into your morning routine and your evening routine.

  • An effective morning routine should stimulate your body and mind while giving you a boost of energy and inspiration.

  • Of course, everyone has a daily routine that is unique to them, so you'll need to find what works best for you.

  • For the morning time, you could read the morning news, go out for an early jog, or listen to a podcast while you get ready for the day.

  • Now, let's talk about an effective evening routine.

  • The main purpose of your evening routine is to de-stress your body and mind after a long day of work or school, while also gradually preparing you for bed.

  • During this time, you should do things that you enjoy and engage in quiet hobbies like reading, writing, or watching a relaxing TV show.

  • If you're looking to change your life by implementing these habits, it's important to remember that habits are difficult to build and can take some time to properly put into practice.

  • Focus on implementing them one by one without rushing anything, and you'll surely feel like your daily life is slowly turning in the right direction.
