If you make this habit, then you’ll realize after a few months what you became and what you were. So how can I learn new things? It’s easy to learn new things on the internet. You can read the site like Reddit to learn new things every day. Most successful people have this habit, so why don’t you?

4. A short walk in the afternoon can improve you a lot.

Are you walking every day in the afternoon? If not, then you should start walking for a few minutes every day. You may not lose too much weight, but you can get fresh air, and it’s essential for eliminating stress. While walking, you can think of your problems and find out solutions for them.

5. Take a paper and write down your everyday thoughts.

Hey, don’t be afraid I’m not telling you to write something like Macbeth. You can write what you think every day about your professional and personal life. By doing this, you can find out mistakes you’re making in your professional and personal life. You can also write poems and stories; it will make you feel good.

6. Don’t forget to read.

Reading is another great way you can apply to improve yourself. For daily self-improvement read anything that enriches you. You can read inspirational stories, self-improvement books, motivational books, self-improvement blogs, etc. You don’t need to read a book every day,
ready one chapter per day that will bring changes to yourself. On the other hand, you can read books that can improve your professional skills. You can also read poetry and stories which are interesting to you.

7. Meet with friends and relatives.

You should meet with your friends and relatives and talk to them face to face instead of online. Meet with people who can make you feel good. You can discuss your problem with your friends and get advice from them. It doesn’t matter what will you get from them, but one thing is sure it will help to build a good relationship with them.

8. Watch or listen to TED talks.

Probably you already know about TED talks, TED talks are an excellent resource for self-development. Experts from different industry talk about a topic in detail. Even you can find self-improvement TED talks from different persons. Watch those TED talks and take action; this way you can bring improvement in your life. Don’t have time to watch TED talks? You can download TED talks as audio and listen to them while traveling.

9. Keep your living and working space clean.

You can’t remain healthy while living in a dirty place. Cleanness is a crucial matter if you want to stay healthy and fresh. So take 10 minutes every day to clean your living and working space. The clean environment around you will bring a positive impact on your mind and mode.

10. Do what you love.

What do you love to do? Ask yourself and do that ten to fifteen minute every day. For me, I love to read religious books, and it helps me a lot to improve myself day by day. You can do gardening or other activities that can bring happiness inside you. So it’s up to you what will you do but do something that you love most and that bring joy to you.

11. Drink enough water every day.

Your daily self-improvement tasks won’t bring any result if you don’t drink enough water every day. You may wonder what is the relation of water with daily self-improvement, by drinking enough water, you can improve digest, health, mode, and body energy.

Are you drinking enough water daily? If not, start drinking water now. Drinking less water can make you dehydrated in the hot summer. If you don’t love to drink plain water, then mix lemon in the water and drink.

12. Listen to daily self-improvement podcasts.

Oh! I almost forget to mention daily self-improvement podcast, daily self-improvement podcasts are the most valuable resource you can use to improve your life. I have been listening at least one daily self-improvement podcast every day in the last six months, and I can tell you it improved my life tremendously. You can listen seven minutes daily self-improvement podcasts to improve your life. Here is my favorite daily self-improvement podcasts: Tony Robinson's podcast, Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, The Good Life Project, etc.

13. Don’t waste time.

Some say that time is money, but time is more than money. You can acquire your lost money, but you can’t get back lost time. If you ask me the definition of time, then I would say time is life because your life is consists of time and it is ending second by second. So don’t waste time. Make proper use of your time.

If you have some extra time, don’t use that for watching television. After waking up in the morning, take some time to schedule your daily work. Set the time for each task and complete every task in due time. To manage your time every day, you can use time management apps such as Focus and Freedom.
