9 Healthy Habits of Successful Women
SHE PAYS HERSELF FIRST
The most successful women understand how to manage their money. They follow a budget, pay their bills on time, stay away from credit cards and make saving and investing for their future a number one priority.
They understand the importance of saving for the future and are focused on their goals. Whether its saving for retirement, building an emergency fund or saving for a specific purchase in mind, successful women know exactly where they need to be putting their hard earned money in order to make those dreams a reality.
SHE DRINKS LOTS OF WATER
You hear it everywhere. Drink your damn water. The benefits of drinking water are endless: improves skin, hair and nails, flushes out toxins from the body, supports healthy digestion, maintains blood pressure, keeps your heart healthy, boosts your immune system, helps weight loss – the list goes on. So follow in the steps of the most successful women in the world and make sure you are drinking a minimum of 2 litres of water every day.
SHE DOESN’T ENGAGE IN GOSSIP
There is nothing in the world more futile and damaging to your productivity than engaging in idle gossip. All this does is bog your mind down with other peoples problems and doesn’t serve the person you’re gossiping about any purpose as you can’t give them support and advice when you’re doing the talking behind their back.
People who gossip rarely have anything good to say and half of what they’re saying is most likely untrue or an exaggerated misrepresentation of the truth. Successful women simply do not have the time for gossiping as they are too busy working on their businesses. If you know somebody who is going through a tough time, then don’t add to the problem by gossiping about it behind their back. If you really want to get involved then reach out to that person directly and offer your support.

SHE WAKES UP EARLY
The early bird catches the worm! The most successful people in the world are known to get up as early as 5am: Barack Obama, Khloe Kardashian and Jennifer Anniston to name a few. Waking up at this time allows you to have a productive start to the day and get a head-start on work in absolute peace. You can eat a nutritious breakfast, work-out and do half a days work all before lunchtime!
SHE GETS PLENTY OF SLEEP
Without adequate sleep each night, you cannot expect to lead a successful life. Sleep loss makes you dumber (yes, really… attention, concentration, reasoning, and problem solving are all affected as a result of sleep deprivation). Depression, premature ageing, forgetfulness, heart disease, risk of stroke, and weight gain are just a few more side effects of lack of sleep. So do yourself a huge favour and make sure you’re getting your eight hours a night.
SHE KNOWS HOW TO SAY “NO”
Learning how to say “no” when something isn’t in your best interest is one of the most valuable skills a person can learn. Saying yes to everything through obligation can lead to you having too much on your plate, in turn risking burnout. Never say yes to an invitation just because you feel you have to if you think it could compromise you health, happiness or financial situation.
If your friends or family give you a hard time because you have said no to something, sit them down and explain the reason why. Usually, they will understand and support you and your best interests – and if they don’t, you really need to consider whether those people are toxic to your life and are they just interested in taking from you?
SHE HAS HOBBIES OF HER OWN
Successful women have hobbies in their own right. Whether its painting, yoga, running, jewellery making, golf, etc. Successful women make sure to engage in the activities that bring them joy, independently from their relationship, children and friends and family members. Engaging in our favourite hobbies is one of the best ways to relieve stress and make new friends with whom we have interests in common.
SHE IS KIND TO EVERYBODY
Perhaps the most important quality of the successful woman is that she is kind to all those around her. She understands that what she puts out into the world, comes back around to her at some point. Being kind to others not only makes those around us happy, but doing selfless things for other people is one of the best ways to boost your own state of mind.
SHE TAKES TIME FOR HERSELF
Taking time to yourself on a regular basis allows you to reset your mind. Whether its a few minutes of meditation each morning, your daily workout or having a few hours at the weekend just to relax and enjoy a movie. Find the activity that helps you relax and switch off. Most importantly, don’t allow yourself to feel guilty for taking this time, it’s a essential part of becoming the most successful woman you can be.
