    This past month I’ve been focusing on eliminating some of my bad habits and replacing them with healthy habits. I picked just 5 habits I wanted to focus on and I’ve been tracking my progress in my bullet journal. I’ll admit, one I completely failed at, one needs more work and three have been a success. One habit that’s been a success is writing in my bullet journal daily. I’ve been using it to keep on top of all the tasks I have to get done, recording anything significant that happens in my day for me to look back on, and my progress towards my goals. I particularly enjoy writing in my gratitude log each day, which shows me that even the more ‘mundane’ days can be appreciated.

    If there are any bad habits you would like to stamp out, I’ve shared 60 healthy habits today so that you can pick a few that you would like to introduce into your life. I find replacing bad habits with healthy habits easier than just trying to quit the bad habit. Instead of focussing on what you can’t do anymore, you put your effort into what you can do, the healthy habit. There are a fair few habits on this list that I personally want to make a part of my life, but I’ll focus on 1-5 a month so that I can really put my efforts into making them a habit before moving on to the next ones. That’s the best way to make a change in your life, picking just a few things to start with and adding more once those habits are established.

    Here are 75 healthy habits that you can easily pick and choose to add into your life and become your best self. Increase your health, mindset and happiness with these healthy habits today | Simply Cantara
