Habits play a crucial part in achieving great things in life. So, make sure you have the good ones. - By Rhythm Bharal

Do you ever realize how small habits shape up who we are? Our habits grow stronger over time and come automatically to us, making us who we really are. More than 40 percent of the actions we perform each day are not decisions but habits. So, make sure you have the good ones. Here are some boss habits that you should develop to make your mark wherever you want!

1. Read as Regularly as Possible 
For a healthier body, you exercise. And, for a healthier brain, you read. Explore your bookshelf and pick out any book or magazine that interests you. Make reading a habit--one chapter of a book daily. It not only aids your brain to retain its ability to concentrate but helps you gain knowledge and build a rich vocabulary. 

2. Indulge in Your Hobbies 
While you must stick to a proper schedule, following the same routine every day may become dull and monotonous. And this is where hobbies play an important role. To break the monotony, indulge in some creative hobbies and bust all the stress as you balance work and life. Doing things that you love helps you enjoy your life, moreover, helps you grow spiritually. 

3. Write A Journal
A mind crammed with unnecessary thoughts becomes quite stressful. Penning down your thoughts and emotions in a journal helps release stress and makes your heart feel lighter. It also serves as a great way to keep your emotions in place. It also helps in introspecting better. Start with a 20-minute journaling every day to make it a habit and de-stress your mind and emotions.

4. Keep An Achievement Log 
It is a human tendency to remember our failures more than our achievements. And, as a consequence, most of us lack self-confidence. Write down all your experiences and achievements so far in an achievement log so that whenever you feel doubtful of your capabilities, you can look at them and boost your morale. It allows you to pat yourself on the back now and then! You deserve it.

5. Save a Consistent Percent of Income

Though money might not be the only thing that matters, it does matter a lot. Saving a consistent percent of your income makes you secure for unforeseen circumstances in the future and helps in fulfilling your life goals. To become a better saver, use the 50-20-30 budget rule. So here is the rule: spend 50% of your income on living expenses (like monthly rent, food, electricity, etc.), save 20% for short, medium, or long-term goals, and spend the rest 30% on outings and other extra expenses. It gives you a way out from the uncertainties of life and provides you with an opportunity to enjoy a quality life.

6. Look Out For Positives 
You have probably had someone tell you to 'see the glass half full.' It is an expression, which encourages you to see things you find positivity in hard times. Negative and positive co-exist; it is you who gets to decide where to lay your eyes. Do not be stressed when things go wrong; keep believing in your abilities. Look at the challenges with a positive approach and take them as an opportunity to grow.

7. Embrace Criticism 
When somebody criticizes you, it can give you a new perspective towards things that you do. It allows you to observe things that you may have overlooked or never considered. It can help you grow by shedding light and giving you the opportunity for improvement. The negative critique might lower your self-confidence. So know the difference!
