    Here’s the list. Which one do you want to work on next? 1. When you set your alarm before bed, put it on the other side of the bedroom. 2. Add one personal item to your work to-do list each day. 3. Keep a “Praise” folder in your email inbox. 4. Carry a water bottle with you everywhere you go. 5. Don’t go to sleep angry at the people you care about. 6. Invest in quality, non-processed, organic food. 7. Limit the junk food you bring into your house. 8. Leave your phone on silent and upside down at all times. 9. Write out a physical to-do list before you go to bed. 10. Take at least ten minutes each day to be still.

      That's your way of doing things, and it's great that it works on your type of character. And to be honest it's always the person you align most that gives you the best advice. Personally leaving phone out of reach means never to hear the alarm, I am a heavy sleeper. What I find works best is combination of meditation and praying. Praying helps me grow my roots around my values and virtues while meditation helps with calming the mind and coping with pain, raising it's threshold.

    Before sleeping I used to put my phone beside me, I wake up on the alarm and as usual take a snooze. Then I decided to put my phone on the shelf above my bed, so I get up and closd the alarm. When I get up to close it I feel like I can wake up and start my day rather than close the alarm while I'm on the bed and continuing sleeping. It's so helpful !!

    I am 22 years old student, and past two years I was really struggling. A year ago I started using Forwago, and their personalized plans helped me a lot. I eat healthier, even started to workout, it helped me build my self-confidence, and maybe the best thing I started my small online business. It is nothing special, but it is nice to earn some money. And I am still making the progress. Take care of yourself and start building the life of your dreams. Everybody is capable of achieving their dreams.

    The 8 glasses thing is a miss quote it is incorrect. Drink water yes but remember most water is from your food. The 8 glasses was considering if all food was dry. best metric is to always drink after you pee (the same amount not more). water out water in.

    Agree with everything except the 8 glasses of water per day myth. Daily water requirements vary a lot based on the person's metabolism, weight, amount of exercise, weather, amount of water rich food consumed (fruits and vegetables), etc.

    The thing is. Everyone talks about journaling and I really think that this is a great idea, but I don’t have to patience and motivation to write down my thoughts, because my writing is too slow for my thoughts, and then I can’t write everything down, which sucks, because I had so much in mind, and then I lose my motivation. And it takes effort to find words. :0000

    The Praise Folder is brilliant- make sure to also keep a “brag book” of work you’ve done. Presentations, writings, pitches etc. Some people don’t want to just see praise, they want to see previous work product too. NOTE: Be very mindful of not sharing confidential data or violating NDAs. When in doubt, share work privately (over screen share) instead of emailing it. Always block out client names and obscure numbers.
