My Daily Habits for Success

Written by Raymond Salas

I was originally “tagged” by Aaron Potts at “Today Is That Day” to reveal some of my daily habits for success. One of my favorite bloggers Shama Hyder reminded me that I had been “tagged” by Aaron for this.

Initially, I felt like my article “The Secrets of My Success” already covered similar ground for me. However, I decided to expand on my article a little with some of my specific daily habits.

My Daily Habits for Success

  • Practice meditation.
I begin each day with a 15-20 minute meditation. I have tried many types of meditation, including guided meditations such as the Learning Strategies “Paraliminals” and Kelly Howell’s "brain wave technology." Currently, I simply relax, close my eyes, and watch my breath. When my mind begins to wander, I mentally remind myself to “Relax and breathe. Relax and breathe.”

  • Practice yoga.
After my morning meditation, I practice the yoga exercises that I discussed in “Secret of The Fountain of Youth.” I find these exercises to be simple, yet powerful. The entire set of five exercises takes about fifteen minutes. For me, it is an invigorating, yet balanced way to start the day.

  • Drink a “green drink.”
After my meditation and yoga (and before any breakfast), I mix together a “green drink.” After trying different brands, I now use organifi Green Vibrance daily. I prefer to receive my vitamins and nutrients from whole foods, without “popping” supplements (wherever possible). Green drinks are a great way for me to do this because they are nutritional “powerhouses.”

  • Drink tea.
I drink tea every day. In the afternoon, I drink this matcha tea: The Republic of Tea Organic U-Matcha. In the evening, with dinner, I drink this turneric tea: The Republic of Tea Organic Turneric. 

  • Drink water.
After discovering the water cure to overcome my allergies, I drink a lot of water. I drink 1-2 glasses when I first wake up, with meals, before sleep, and throughout the day whenever I am thirsty. In addition, I drink more during exercise. Yes, I know that someday I may actually grow gills like a fish from so much water.

  • Exercise.
Spending so much time using computers and other devices, I realize the importance for regular exercise and movement, so I do this high-intensity interval training routine weekly: Tabata Workout. I also play softball on the weekend. Occasionally, I play some tennis or basketball too.

Thanks Aaron for the “tag” and Shama for the reminder.

Be well!
