7 Habits of Happy, Effective, and Successful People

I know that being happy and effective are two different things. But I believe that you can be both. In fact, I think it's possible to have an amazing life in which you never feel overwhelmed or stressed out. You just need the right tools and habits -- which is where this guide comes in!

Exercise in the morning.

Exercise is one of the best ways to start your day. It can help you feel more energized and alert, sleep better, lose weight (if you need to), manage stress, reduce anxiety and depression. What's not to love?

If you're looking for a good time of day to work out, it's generally considered best to exercise in the morning before breakfast or when you are hungry. This way your body has plenty of energy for working out instead of using up all its resources digesting food first thing in the morning.

It may help motivate yourself if you think about how good it will feel when it's over: endorphins kick in during exercise which lead us feel happier overall!

Eat a healthy breakfast.

A healthy, balanced breakfast is essential for everyone. In fact, it's the most important meal of the day—so much so that some experts recommend eating two breakfasts if you're trying to lose weight. That's right: two breakfasts!

The importance of breakfast can't be overstated. It provides energy and helps your body function at its best throughout the day. You need this energy because you're going to use it all up by doing... things... like being awake and alive, probably having a job (or multiple jobs), maybe having school or classes too—who knows? Everyone has their own hustle!

When choosing what type of food to eat for breakfast (or even deciding whether or not you should eat at all), keep in mind these tips:

Set daily goals.

“If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.” -- Lewis Carroll

Setting goals is a crucial aspect of your life and work. It allows you to define what success looks like for yourself and know when you have achieved it. Goals give us something to aim for and an idea of what we want out of life. Goals are also important because they help us determine how we spend our time, which can be highly valuable in terms of how much money we make and how productive we feel at work or school.

  • Setting daily goals is essential for keeping track of achievements throughout the day. If a person has no way of tracking their progress toward their long-term goals, then it becomes very difficult for them to understand whether or not they are making any meaningful progress toward achieving those goals at all (and if so, how quickly). If this happens often enough over several months or years then people may become discouraged from trying anymore because they never see any evidence that things are improving!

Do something you love every day (even if it's just for 15 min)

  • Do something you love every day (even if it's just for 15 min)
  • It can be a hobby, sport or craft. Just do what brings you joy.
  • If you can't really find the time to do it every day, then try to do it as often as possible.

Find a way to take criticism without getting defensive.

Criticism is a necessary part of life. It's not something you want to hear, but it's something that everyone has to deal with. In the workplace, it can be particularly difficult to take criticism in stride because your work is often on display and subject to scrutiny by others. You need a thick skin when dealing with criticism in order to get the most out of it.

When you feel attacked or defensive when someone criticizes your work or some other aspect of your life, it's important that you realize they're not actually attacking YOU—they're just giving their opinion based on what they've seen so far. If someone points out an error in your work or suggests an improvement for one of your projects, don't get defensive! Instead try saying "Thank you for pointing that out" and then consider how best to address their concerns before moving forward with whatever task was being discussed at the time (or move forward anyway if there isn't anything else left).

Another thing worth noting here: Some people are simply bad critics (and we all know them). They may have good intentions but are still wrong about whatever point they're trying make about YOUR work/problem/situation etc., so don't let them get under your skin too much either!

Make decisions quickly.

If you're having trouble making a decision, try to think of the best way to move forward. Don't wait for the perfect moment. If there is no perfect moment, then make one now! Don't be afraid of making mistakes; they're inevitable and will happen eventually whether you delay or not.

Take some time to really consider what is important to you and what goals are most important to achieve in your life. You can do this by reflecting on past experiences or even imagining yourself in different situations, but ultimately it's all about setting priorities so that when faced with decisions later on—like "Should I buy this car?" or "Should I take this job?"—you'll have some guidance as well as confidence in your decision-making skills.

Manage your emotions -- be positive and upbeat, even when you're feeling upset or stressed out.

  • Don't get upset about every little thing. If you find yourself getting worked up over the smallest things, stop and think about how much time you're wasting. Focus on what you can do to improve the situation instead of getting bent out of shape over it.
  • Don't let your emotions control you. When something upsetting happens, take a step back and try to see things logically instead of emotionally; don’t take everything so personally! If someone does something that upsets you, don’t let their words or actions affect who YOU are as a person; remember that everyone is entitled to their own opinions/beliefs/values which may conflict with yours at times (and vice versa) but that doesn’t mean they don't love and respect YOU (and vice versa). It's easy for emotions such as anger, sadness or frustration become overwhelming when we allow them too much power over us; this is why many people struggle with controlling these feelings in themselves or others close around them all too often throughout life....

Make self-care a priority, and find ways to succeed that work for you.

Self-care is important, and finding ways to succeed that work for you is essential. To emphasize this point, I’ll share two stories with you:

  • A friend of mine recently decided she wanted to take up golf. She had always maintained a healthy relationship with her body and mind, so it wasn’t surprising that she wanted to add another way of staying in shape (and having fun!) into her life. She signed up for a class at the local driving range and worked hard at learning the basics so that she could join an actual league soon.
  • Another friend was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was younger; while his symptoms weren't severe at first, they eventually became more pronounced once he started college. For one thing, he found himself needing more sleep than his peers; but because his body didn't have enough energy left over after getting through classes each day and dealing with other obligations as well, he often ended up feeling exhausted even after sleeping ten hours in bed! He decided he needed something else besides just going through the motions every day—especially since his situation was only getting worse!


Remember, these tips are just a starting point. The key is to keep trying new things until you find the ones that work for you -- and then do them every day! If there's anything we've learned from our own struggles with happiness and success, it's that there's no magic formula or one right way to live life. But we do know this much: The more positive habits you have in place, the easier it is to be happy and successful at what you do. So give these suggestions a try, and let us know how they go!
