Many people don’t know this, but their daily routine has a significant impact on their health and mood.

For example, if you don’t eat your breakfast, you are more l
ikely to angy or frustrated then people who eat breakfast. This is why you need to be more decisive and thoughtful in your daily life as it impacts your life in ways you aren’t aware of.

Here are a few common mistakes that prevent you from being happy and healthy.


1.Avoiding A Deep Connection with Someone:
Do you have someone with whom you can speak anything without any worries of judgment or guilt? If not, then you are not the only one.

Having a connection with someone calm us down as we know we have a person with whom we can open our hearts. Such deep conversation helps us cope with the on-going frustration in life and feel rejuvenated.


2. Sitting All Day:
Most of us sit throughout the day, whether it is in our office or in school or colleges. Rarely we go on a walk or indulge in fun activities with our friends and family.

This obviously affects our body and cause complication for o
ur old age. Moreover, we are missing out on memories. This comes to haunt us later in our life and act as a source of disappointment.


3. Always In A Hurry:
When was the last moment, you sat down and just
concentrate on your breath and nothing else? An eternity maybe?

This might seem odd, but focusing on your breathing helps y
ou connect with your inner soul.

Your body responds to such signs by igniting little sparks in your body, which keep mentally and physically happy.


4. Not Joining A Community:
An ancestral trait among humans is that they feel safe when they are among friends and family. We feel positive and an urge to something in the community.

Hence, we all need to be part of a community, whether it a s
port, human welfare, entertainment, or any place where you can interact with people, can go a long way for anyone.


5. Ignoring Creative Abilities:
Do you miss drawing or write stuff at the back of your notebook in the middle of a class? This goes to show that there is an artist inside all of us.

We are not saying everyone is a Picasso, but letting your inner creativity out on a paper feels good. It looks like you achieved something.

So, let your creativity out in one way or another.


6. Willingly Trapped Inside Your Own House:
Traveling is a thrilling ride, you explore new places, meet new people. This benefits both your physical and mental condition.

For example, we are exposed to sunlight, it improves c
onfidence, you connect with more people, etc.

Moreover, this thrill rests inside your heart and gives you a reason to work so that you can go to travel again.


7. Not Contributing To Society:
A lot of us spend our days consuming on the things given by the society. Whether it is religious freedom, privacy, tech gadgets, or anything else.

We are so addicted to consumption that we forget to c
ontribute back to society. Imbalance and addiction are never good in any context.

Hence, engage in activities of contribution, even small one w
ork wonders.


8. Eating Alone:
A dinner table is a place of camaraderie among friends and family, which keeps the person lively and mood fresh.

However, if you are eating alone, you miss this aspect of eating and end up binge eating. This destroys your diet, and you blame yourself for being a disappointment. Both of which are the worst scenarios for anyone.


9. Doing a job/Reading Books You Don’t Love:
Career is a very important aspect of our life. We spend 1/3 of our day working and if you don’t like the job or the book you’re reading. You are bound to be frustrated, angry, lose interest in life, etc.

These are signs of a depressed person who falls into a vicious cycle of life. So, if you are working in a place, you don’t love or reading the material you don’t like either you change the job/material or try to love what you do.


10. Not Believing In Yourself:
If there is one person who shouldn’t doubt on your ability is yourself. Because once you start to do it, you will also do it, and it will reflect in your performance, whether it is your career, love life, or social life.

You end up being miserable, and there is little or no hope of growth in your life.


11. Not Obeying God’s Commands:
In everything we do in life, we need God’s help directly or indirectly. He’s the one that programmed us and we can’t do anything about that, so therefore, he knows and understand us than we know and understand ourselves.

So for that reason, following his instructions with the best of our capacity brings this particular inner peace and joy that encompasses everything.

So, these are a few Common mistakes you need to stay away from if you are looking for a positive and healthy life.
