I believe that the base to achieve whatever we want in life comes from our habits. A series of habits that will bring us closer and closer to whatever our dreams are. And for that is important to create rituals to achieve our goals!
Daily rituals that will have a combination of habits that will thrive you towards those goals you have settle.
It’s the perfect time.
We have been sent home, to actually go back home, the call is to go within. If you haven’t read my previous blog post, do so here please: The hidden call of this forced pause.
After reflecting on your life, have you realized that you have reaped what you have sown?
Everything works like this, sometimes we actually call it karma. Well, it also applies to what we are living now at home, either alone, with our partner or our family.
We are living exactly what we have to learn, to heal, to grow into. We have to accept it, otherwise, if we resist, it persists as well said.
So now, that you have the time, even if you are working from home you have time, and if not, make it, it’s about priorities. Drop Netflix or Social Media for a couple of hours.
Create a ritual on your routine that serves you for good.
For example, if your aim is to exercise more, set at least 10 minutes of stretching during the day, if you’re not sure how, just google it, there are infinite choices on the web.
If you want to start eating healthier, you can start by eating a small salad before lunch.
If you want to start meditating, take 2 minutes to focus on your breathing after waking up.
Everything is possible if you set it up as a priority in life. And your goals are a priority.
If you don’t have a daily ritual yet, here are the steps on how to create it.
How to create a ritual:
- Make the list of things you want to achieve
Let’s say you have a list of 7 or 10.
Using the examples from above: exercising, eating healthier, and meditation
- Period of the day that fits you more
Morning, for meditation and exercising. Eating healthier, at lunchtime.
- What props do you need
– Exercising: a yoga mat or beach towel, or just your tennis shoes (you can dress if you want ;))
– Meditation: nothing or a mobile phone if you want background music or use a meditation app. You can even search for guided meditations.
– Eating healthier: ingredients to make a salad with homemade dressing
- Determine the time frame for each activity
– Morning: 5 minutes meditation and 10 minutes for stretching.
– Afternoon: 5 minutes to prepare a salad to start eating healthier. Eat the salad before having the main dish.
- Schedule each activity on your daily calendar
So it becomes part of your daily agenda and you don’t put it aside or forget about it.
- Get ready
Get the props you need. Set your alarm clock 20 minutes before your normal time, so you don’t have an excuse for not having time, right 😉 Take extra 5 minutes at lunch to prepare your salad, it’s just 5 minutes less on your screen phone.
- Prepare your mindset
Before going to bed visualize yourself already doing the ritual during the day. See yourself and imagine how you’ll feel by the end of each activity. This will go into your unconscious mind and it will prepare you during your sleep.
- Let’s do it
Start moving forward towards achieving your goals. One step at a time, and with certainty. If you want, you can use Rule 5/7, which implies to make the ritual 5 days a week (usually your working days) and take a break for two (usually the weekends).
If the new ritual doesn’t adapt to your needs, adjust it accordingly. Keeping always your goals in mind.

Become a rich person by feeling happy and fulfilled when achieving your goals in life. Start by creating a ritual that serves you.
