Excerpt from a TIME magazine researched-based article.
The #1 ritual to do every day is: use more rituals. Science is realizing that often just having a ritual is the important part — and it’s been validated in a number of studies.
What matters is that it’s your ritual and that you actually do it. The best rituals come from your heart.
- Savoring Ritual: Make the good times better by having something you do to focus on the good things. Share good news with a partner or have a regular mealtime with your family.
- Grief Ritual: When something has you down, write about your feelings. It’ll reduce the pain and help you cope.
- Personal Starting Ritual: Beat anxiety and procrastination by having a fun ritual that says it’s time to get to work.
- Peak Performance Ritual: If it makes you feel lucky, you will be lucky. Rituals increase confidence and performance.
