Habits that Helped to Get My Life Together


Sometimes life can be chaotic and out of your control. For the most part, we tend to have a lot of control over our life. There are three habits that really help anyone to shape their life.

1) Organization

To-do list, tracking time spent and adjusting accordingly, being conscious of finances and budgeting, short term and long term goal setting and most importantly priority setting. 

Organisation also means taking the time to process, think and evaluate. And carving up lots of time for creativity, play and idea-generating.

2) Personal Care

We always struggle with work-life balance, which tends to burn out, exhaustion, sleep deprivation, occasional mental breakdown, occasional panic attack and much more.

Consider “PERSONAL CARE” your main job, getting enough sleep, exercise, eating intuitively, attending therapy consistently, meditation and even have an evening skincare regiment. 

3) Reading

Reading expands so much about ourselves. Compassion, knowledge, creativity, our emotional lives are improved by reading. Reading can slow the progress and even prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s and Dementia. It strengthens your brain and analytical and thinking skills. Improves focus and concentration, increases your ability to empathize, builds vocabulary, reduces stress, alleviates depression and lengthens your freaking life.

4) Self Care Ideas

  • Read more books than tweets
  • Turn off your notifications
  • Plan something to look forward to
  • Say no to (and avoid) things that make you feel bad
  • Limit your consumption of bad news
  • Listen to what your body needs
  • Wear clothes that make you happy (and cosy)
  • Ask for help and advice with difficult tasks

According to psychologists, there are 4 types of intelligence:

1. Intelligence Quotient (IQ): This is the measure of your comprehension ability”, solve maths; memorize things and recall subject matters.

2. Emotional Quotient (EQ): This is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others; keep to time; be responsible; be honest; respect boundaries; be humble, genuine and considerate.

3. Social Quotient (SQ): This is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain it over a long period of time.

People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go farther in life than those with high IQ but low EQ and SQ. Most schools capitalize on improving IQ level while EQ and SQ are played down.

Pls don’t teach children only to have higher IQ, but also to have higher EQ and SQ.

Now there is a 4th one: A new paradigm

4. The Adversity Quotient (AQ): The measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life and come out without losing your mind. AQ determines who will give up in face of troubles and may abandon their families.

To parents: Develop their EQ, SQ and AQ. They should become multifaceted human beings able to do things independently of the parents.
