Hey, pretty! Are you tired of your bad habits? Looking for the ways to shape your life into something you really love? Maybe you’re just fed up with the way you are and looking for a sweet formula on how to finally get yourself together?

I’ve got something that can help you!

Before reinventing myself and redesigning my life, I was a lazy, unorganized, unmotivated girl with a full collection of bad habits. Paired with anxiety and eventually – depression, these bad life choices kept dragging me down until I became fed up. 

I decided to change myself completely and developing good habits was one of the things I worked on in my personal growth story.

After working on my self improvement for the past 5 or 6 years I can honestly say – constant self improvement is a choice – and a life-changing one!

If you crave to have a better life, you should always be looking for ways to improve it. And what’s a better way to improve than with good, healthy, and positive habits! 

In fact, it might be that sweet formula you’re looking for.

Not only does the feeling of becoming better help you to keep a positive mindset + stay insanely productive but it’s also pretty addictive. 

The fun thing with building healthy habits is that they can be gamified. You can choose which habits you want to adopt, you can track them (here’s a super handy habit tracker for that) or you can even set yourself up for a fun challenge to help yourself keep going.

 

So here is a list of 99 habits you can implement in your life to live better, feel better and become better every single day.

Most of them are really easy so I recommend implementing at least a few – it’s so worth it!

Important: I made this list extra fancy and enriched it with tools and resources that can help you develop a particular habit. Those will be visible as purple links or images and I strongly recommend you to check them out because they WILL make things so much easier for you.

Habit creation will require some work after all so the easier you make this for you, the bigger the chances of success.

+ There’s a printable checklist at the bottom that you can download for free and gamify your habit creation, yay!

Simply checkmark all the habits you’ve already developed. Can you make it to all 99? That would be MAJESTIC.

Ok, let’s do this! Let’s create new habits for your better life!

Amber, the list of these is excellent. Here are my 5 favorite ones:
Plan your day.
Always write down your ideas.
Challenge yourself every month.
Track your sleep & dreams.
Track your habits.

I would like my personal favorite – make it a habit to stack habits.

Ever since I started adding tiny positive habits to my life, everything has gotten much better. I seriously encourage everyone to try and add one tiny positive habit a month to their habit stack and track it daily for 30 days, then add a new one.

It’s helped me immensely.

All the best,

– Benjamin Strusnik
