We must also bear in mind that success is not the same as happiness, so the ideal is to maintain a balance that allows for both successful work and success in other areas of our lives, such as the relational, physical and the mental ones. This is only achieved with healthy habits that nurture an integral development of the person, in addition to helping to create routines to be more aware of the time and use it in the best way possible, not only to fulfill the responsibilities, but to be able to rest and have leisure spaces.
Here we tell you about five habits that you can implement in your daily life. We recommend you to implement them little by little and in the best way for you, because the important thing is that you get used to them and enjoy them, but not that you end up despairing and abandoning them.

1. Exercise every day
It is not necessary that the exercise you do is prolonged or very difficult. With just a routine of 10 or 20 minutes you can feel more energy, plus you will be having a healthier lifestyle. We recommend exercising in the morning, you can create a routine with which you exercise every part of your body in a short time. Then, if you see that you can do it, increase the time you dedicate to this activity.
We recommend doing this in the morning, as it will leave you energized for the rest of the day.
2. Learn something new
While you are doing your mayor teachers do not teach everything we would like to learn and that is what successful people know. That's why they are always educating themselves in new topics. Think of something you're passionate about and start learning more about it. Today Internet is a great tool and that facilitates the completion of a course from the comfort of your home and in which you can spend as much time as you are able. We recommend you to work on this every day, dedicate at least 20 minutes to advance in your course.
This will not only bring you happiness because you are learning something new, but you can also apply it in your work life to progress.
Reading is a habit that most people find difficult, either because it seems very boring, because they do not know where to start or because they have not found a book that makes them passionate. We recommend you to devote to reading at least 30 minutes a day, since not only can you find new learning, but also you can disconnect for a moment from the world and entertain yourself. Think of reading like that: an entertainment in which there are intrinsic learnings. You can approach an old bookstore so that the bookseller can recommend titles depending on your tastes. Start with soft readings and gradually increase the difficulty.
We also recommend you not to read something that has to do with your work directly, because the idea is to create a space away from it, even if it last for a short time.
4. Keep a diary
Many times the things that happen in our daily life are so overwhelming that it is difficult to find a way to let off steam and find a solution to problems. Keeping a journal can help you with this. You can write what you want in it without fear of being judged and you can also return to it to understand yourself better.
This habit will help you especially to get rid of everything that weighs on you and set a horizon for your next movements. Keep in mind that having a journal does not mean that your problems will be solved, but you will be more aware of yourself and your limitations to use them to your advantage.
In the middle of all the hustle it is also necessary to rest. Try to sleep more than six hours and maximum 8 hours and, in this way, your body will always be rested and prepared for new challenges. Take some time to be with family and friends without worrying about your work. We also recommend you to meditate: you can download a meditation app, take between 5 and 15 minutes to sit down, close your eyes and do not think about anything else that is not your here and now.
