7 Healthy Habits to Boost Your Mindset
1. Don’t eat first thing in the morning (3:11)
You can apply this rule however makes sense to you, but personally, I don't wake up, brush my teeth, and head straight for a croissant! Intermittent fasting helps me focus so much more without food weighing me down too early in the day. Coffee and lemon water tend to hold me over so I can be productive as soon as my morning begins.
The 4 Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss teases the idea of eating within the first 30 minutes of the day, but evaluate what works for you and your body! If you're in the habit of eating a heavy meal first thing but you notice yourself feeling groggy, try something new.
2. Schedule your workouts (8:53)
It's no secret that moving your body regularly is vitally important for your health. Find a workout routine that works for you. Personally, I'm much more likely to stick to that routine if I schedule it on my calendar.
If you can only do 3 days a week, that's okay! It doesn't make it any less important to schedule. Put it in the calendar and evaluate where you may need to adjust your habits.
3. Take 5 minutes to meditate or do a gratefulness practice (13:10)
I've been trying out Tony Robbin's Priming practice to meditate on my gratitude and help me chase the things I want. Through breathing exercises and some mindset coaching, this practice has become a hugely important part of keeping my mindset in check.
Find a practice that helps you center yourself and focus on positivity. Sit with your thoughts, take yourself off the hamster wheel, and do something that will help you think from a new perspective.
4. Stop multitasking while you eat (17:02)
I picked this up from a book called Intuitive Eating. Multitasking while eating, whether you're watching TV or working or scrolling your phone, prevents you from recognizing how food is making you feel. This leads to overeating or sometimes under-eating — neither of which are helpful for clarity or your mindset!

5. One alcoholic drink max (21:32)
Obviously alcohol isn't here to increase your clarity! One beautiful glass of wine while I'm writing in the evening is great for keeping me in the zone. But after one, things can get a little crazy.
Let yourself enjoy a single drink without multitasking or getting distracted so you can stay ontop of your game.
6. Eat your veggies (23:34)
Balanced meals with veggies are a must-have a clear, focused mindset. Work them in where you can, whether you toss some in your omelette in the morning or sprinkle some in your salad at dinner!
7. Schedule your bedtime for 7-8 hours of sleep (25:11)
If you're scheduling that time for your body and mind to recover, you're much more likely to get the rest you really need. We never feel our best after 5 hours of disrupted sleep! Do your best to get to bed at a certain time so you can get a full 7 to 8 hours.
