When it comes to forming healthy habits, most of us plan on making a change “someday.” But what if you had someone in your life pushing you to make a change today rather than tomorrow.

It turns out that you do have a person like this in your life – your future self. And here are just a few of the habits that your future self will appreciate:

1. Create a consistent fitness routine.

A big part of a healthy lifestyle is getting regular physical activity. Forming a consistent fitness routine isn’t easy, but once you have the habit built into your daily life, you’ll reap all kinds of rewards. So find a workout that you look forward to and commit to making it happen three or four days a week.

2. Get a good night’s sleep.

Your future self wants you to put down your phone or the remote and get a good night’s sleep. And because your body uses the time while you’re asleep to repair and rebuild itself, getting quality sleep is a vital part of the recovery process. If you have a hard time getting to bed or keeping to a healthy sleep schedule, try creating a bedtime routine.

3. Stick to a healthy-ish diet.

We probably all know the parts of our daily diets that could use some work. And while your daily food choices may not need a complete overhaul, there might be one or two things that you could do differently. Make your healthy food choices more sustainable and part of your daily life by making good food decisions most of the time.

4. Improve mindfulness.

Your future self will thrive when you take steps to improve your physical health, as well as your mental health. And a big part of mental health is mindfulness. Whether it’s meditation, focused breathing or journaling, finding ways to improve mindfulness can help alleviate stress and anxiety. Take small chances to live more in the present, improve your self-awareness and listen to how you talk to yourself.

5. Put some work into your relationships.

You probably know that loneliness and disconnection are not good feelings, and your future self agrees. So, put the time and effort into building and maintaining the relationships that matter to you. It’s not easy to make friends as an adult, and it does take some work to keep the friendships you’ve formed. But by investing in your relationships, you will build lasting connections that will last well into the future.
