These tips accelerated my process of personal evolution beyond my wildest imaginations. These techniques contain both things for the body and the mind, for you cannot focus on one while ignoring the other. These are the things that you should be doing if you want to be a well rounded and constantly growing individual.
A big disclaimer before I begin, I’m not a doctor and these are only the things that have worked for me. I’m not saying all of them will work for you, and you should use your judgement and an expert’s opinion before trying something new.
So the first tip is one that had the greatest impact on me both physically and mentally was cold showers. I still remember the first time I took a cold shower. It was the middle of winters and I was taking a nice warm shower after a tough work out, and I remembered that I had planned to take a cold shower. I kept debating whether or not I should do it. But then, thankfully I finally decided to take the plunge, pun intended.
Now the second psychological life hack is journalling. Journalling by far has been the biggest game changer for me. It is what helped me start this youtube channel, and it is what picks me up whenever I feel down about myself. I’ll make a future video about the exact things you need to write in a journal and how to go about doing it in the most productive manner, so stay tuned for that. But for now, all you need to know is that writing down your thoughts everyday in some form is one of the most crucial self esteem building exercises you can do. Infact I know this is a bold claim, but journalling is by far the most important kind of writing that you will ever do.
The third tip is a little more personal to just me, but I’m sure if you try it you’ll find a lot of value in it. And that is learning an instrument. Brain scans have shown that learning an instrument changes the way our brains work. Nothing is more rewarding in the long term than seeing the immediate benefits of you getting something right finally and everything clicking into place.
The fourth tip is intermittent fasting. This was the biggest factor that allowed me to lose the weight that I really needed to. Now I’m not saying everybody needs to do this, but if you’re an extreme all or nothing kind of a person like me, then this might be your thing. In intermittent fasting, you basically only eat in a certain period during the day, like 2pm to 9pm. Then until the next day, you don’t consume any calories.
Now my last practical life hack is having a morning ritual. I cannot stress how much this has helped me in staying disciplined. There is a clear difference in my productivity throughout the day depending on whether I have performed my morning ritual or not. Your morning ritual is a compass to the rest of your day. The most important thing that I do in my morning ritual is that I write down a list of things that I absolutely have to do, and then no matter what, I cross them off the list. This gives structure to my day, and also helps me slowly but surely inch towards my goals.
Bonus tip: nofap. I know there’s a lot of controversy around this topic, so all I’ll tell you is this. I tried it, and it worked out great for me. My suggestion with nofap, as with all the other techniques is this, don’t dismiss it immediately. Try it out for atleast a few weeks and see how you feel. There is only upside, and you literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Improvement pill made an amazing video about nofap, so I’ll link to it in the end screen.
