Developing a basic daily pattern of good habits can improve your health, happiness, and overall well-being. A routine, good or bad, is just a collection of acts that we perform in the same order every day for a length of time.
Because these activities occur without thought and are automatic, they develop habits over time. They could be as simple as getting a donut and coffee every morning before work or having pizza every Friday night for dinner. Establishing healthy habits and routines can be just as simple as establishing unhealthy ones. Let's have a look at some easy, healthy habits...
Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day.
Participants who brushed and flossed regularly had a considerably lower risk of stroke, according to a study published in the American Journal of Medicine. Another study published in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society indicated that people who did not wash their teeth had a 65 percent increased risk of acquiring dementia.
Gum disease, which has been linked to heart disease, tooth loss, and infection, is one of the other advantages. Erectile dysfunction in men and underweight pre-term babies born to moms with gum and dental disease have been linked to poor oral hygiene.

2. Plan your day ahead of time the night before
Consider organising things ahead of time if you have a busy day planned for tomorrow. This can save time and stress, as well as ensure that things run well the next day. Choosing what you'll wear and laying it out the night before will help you save time.
You may also set a timer for the coffee maker, pack the kids' lunches ahead of time, hang their clothing out, and serve their dry cereal in bowls at the table. Simply add milk. Think further ahead if you truly want to reduce your stress. On Sunday, make sure the gas tank is full and prepare the entire week's meals ahead of time. All it needs is a little imagination and planning.

3. Exercise on a Daily Basis
You may enhance and maintain your health by exercising for as little as twenty to thirty minutes every day. Exercise relieves physical and mental stress while also releasing endorphins into the bloodstream, which boosts mood. Furthermore, exercise benefits heart health by boosting circulation and blood flow while also assisting in the reduction of anxiety.
You'll notice that your thinking remains keen. Exercise has been linked to a reduction in cognitive deterioration as people age. It will assist you in improving your memory, weight control, and muscle strength. Due to the release of the feel-good chemical "dopamine," which addicts generally obtain through drugs and alcohol, one often ignored benefit of exercise is that it can help in the fight against addictions.

4. Make Use Of A Calendar
Calendars are simple, cost-effective, low-cost, and portable instruments that can greatly aid in the organisation and scheduling of your life. They are available in a variety of sizes and forms, and everybody in the family, including tiny children, may learn to use them.
To keep track of the children's activities, doctor's appointments, parent-teacher meetings, and so on, you might wish to use a large family calendar. Small day planners are easy to carry in your purse. For some people, electronic organisers or calendars on their phones may be a better option. Just make sure you have a backup in case you misplace your phone or your internet goes down.
5. Get a Restful Night's Rest
Nature's great restorative treatment is sleep. It boosts memory, mental sharpness, attention span, creativity, and inflammation reduction. People who slept less than six hours per night had greater amounts of C-reactive protein in their blood, according to one study. This protein has been associated to cardiac inflammatory disease.
Participants in another study who slept between five and seven and a half hours per night died less frequently than those who slept less than five hours or more than eight hours. So, if you want to live a healthy life, make sure you get a decent night's sleep so you may wake up refreshed and rejuvenated every morning.

6. Consume two vegetable servings per day
At mealtime, vegetables are frequently overlooked in favour of carbohydrates or starchy items. Because of their nutrient-dense and health-promoting properties, they should be elevated to a position of honour at mealtimes. Vegetables are high in fibre, folate (folic acid), vitamins A, E, and C, as well as potassium and magnesium.
Fibre enhances cardiac health by promoting intestinal regularity and lowering blood cholesterol. During foetal development, folic acid is required for red blood cell formation and good spinal growth.

7. Every day, write down two things for which you are grateful.
Gratitude is thought to be the single most important thing to do on a daily basis if you want to be happy. It allows you to see hidden opportunities and reframes your thinking to include positive reality. It improves your self-esteem and your living circumstances, and it attracts positive individuals to you like a magnet.
An attitude of thankfulness is motivating not just to oneself, but also to others who learn from your example. It's a way of rising above your current circumstances and living life fully in the present moment.
8. Hand Sanitation
Handwashing is an easy and effective approach to stop germs from spreading. Hands should be washed before handling or consuming food, cleaning the restroom, handling animals, and treating any wounds. To the naked sight, contaminated hands may appear clean.
After just a few seconds of touch with a contaminated surface, a slew of microscopic germs, bacteria, and viruses may be present. Infections of the gastrointestinal tract, influenza, and hepatitis A are just a few of the diseases that can be transmitted from one person to another through contaminated hands. Handwashing on a regular basis can help you and those around you stay healthy.
