Welcome to this video on 15 micro-habits for a happier and healthier life.

We all want to live a life that is full of joy and satisfaction. However, it can be difficult to make major changes in order to achieve this. That’s why it’s important to focus on the small habits or actions that can make a big difference over the long term.

Here are 15 micro-habits that can help you to live a healthier and happier life.

First, start the day with a positive attitude.

Take a few moments when you wake up to focus on the good in your life and set an intention for the day.

Second, move your body.

Even spending five minutes doing some low-intensity exercise, such as stretching or taking a short walk, can help to improve your mood and energize you for the day ahead.

Third, declutter your living space.

A messy environment can contribute to feelings of stress and depression, so spend a few minutes tidying up each day.

Fourth, practice gratitude.

Make a list each day of three things you are thankful for and focus your thoughts on these positive things.

Fifth, eat breakfast.

Eating a nutritious breakfast can provide the energy and brainpower you need to navigate the challenges of the day.

Sixth, drink plenty of water.

Staying hydrated is essential for a healthy body and mind.

Seventh, get enough sleep.

Aim to get between 7–8 hours of quality sleep each night to keep your energy levels up.

Eighth, take breaks throughout the day.

Breaks allow your mind to reset and recharge, which is important for mental clarity and productivity.

Ninth, be mindful of your self-talk.

Be aware of the negative language you use when talking to yourself and replace it with positive affirmations instead.
