I love being a girl! My friends and I stick together like glue. When one of us is down, the rest of us pitch in and try to cheer her up. When one of us excels at something, we all pitch in and cheer together. We are a team! But sometimes, there are things we like to work on, together, as a group to raise the bar. Here is what we do to better our selves. Please read the entire article and let me know if these habits are something you might need to work for more GIRL POWER…
1. Teeth Brushing
You would be amazed at the number of people that don't brush their teeth every day. Some folks only find the time to brush their teeth when they're going somewhere special, and I'm sorry, but that's just disgusting! Come on, people! A good toothbrush is about the cost of that soda and candy bar you just bought, and it only takes 3 minutes to brush your teeth! 3 minutes a day to better breath and prettier teeth sounds great to me! On the flip side of this, though, a bad habit would be too much brushing in a day. You can cause more harm than good if you brush too much, so I suggest sticking to once in the morning and once at night!
Every day, exercise! Healthy habits are good habits, and there is nothing healthier than an active lifestyle. It's best to start your day with at least a 30-minute fitness routine. If you discipline yourself to be able to do this every morning, pretty soon, it will become a "habit" you can't live without.
3. Be Thankful
It's not a bad idea to get "into the habit" of being thankful for everything you have. If you have a roof over your head, food on the table, a bed with nice, warm covers and a vehicle, you're blessed. If you even have just one of these items, you're blessed! Don't take everything in your life for granted, for in a split second, it can all be taken away.
4. Regular Sleep
Today, it's all about running, and staying awake as long as possible, only to get a few hours and be right back out. Your body, in order to maintain a healthy cycle, needs a regular amount of sleep. Health issues and obesity have been linked to a person not getting enough sleep. It's best to "get into the habit" of getting 6 or 7 hours of sleep every night. Your body will thank you!
5. Ever-Learning Student
Who said you're too old to learn? Who said an old dog can't learn a trick or two? Amongst us human beings, one is never too old to learn something new. You should habit yourself to pay attention, and try to learn something every day. No matter what it is, always be on the look out for something to learn.
6. Drink Water
While there is nothing wrong with the occasional soda or juice, or even the daily cup of coffee, your main liquid intake should be water. In all actuality, health professionals say you should drink half of your body weight in ounces of water each day. For example, say you weigh 130 pounds. 65 is half of 130, so you should be drinking 65 fluid ounces of water each day. That really isn't hard to do - four times throughout the day, drink a 16-ounce bottle of water!
7. Helping Others
In the ABC series "What Would You Do?" hidden cameras revealed how people reacted to other's situations. You would be amazed at the people that completely ignored those poor people in need, or who didn't stand up for someone getting hurt against, simply because it "wasn't any of their business". We should be a country of people that helps each other as they did in the old days. We should be able to depend on our neighbors, and be able to be depended on. Make it a habit to help others. Karma is a good thing when you've done right!
