Adopting certain habits to your life can make such a difference to the way you may make a decision or take action on a situation in your life. Even general well being. Applying certain habits to your life will change the general vibration you are resonating on.



Everyone knows that education is important. That’s why we spend twelve to eighteen years in buildings that are designed to teach us things, however the problem lies in the fact that most of the stuff we learned in school isn’t that useful in real life.

When did you have to use your history knowledge or your knowledge of trigonometry? These things are nice to know and have their uses but aren’t that practical in our day to day lives.

Instead we need to be learning about things like social skills, maintaining a proper diet, how to exercise, money management and things that we don’t really learn while growing up. By reading you’ll often find that you’ll start adjusting other areas of your life.


If you’re reading a book on body language, you’ll start becoming more conscious of your own body language as well as those around you. if you read a book on money management, you start noticing a change in your spending habits, and because of its ability to influence any part of your life in a positive way, reading is without a doubt one of the most powerful Keystone habits out there.


The reason meditation is so powerful is because of what it does to your brain. It trains a part of your brain that’s responsible for willpower, for self-control and just like going to the gym, if you train it it actually gets stronger. This gives you the ability to do certain things, for example you’ll find yourself more in control of your emotion and this is great because oftentimes we relapse or give into our addictions when our emotions are all over the place.

Another thing meditation trains you to do is focus longer. Meditation is simply the act of trying to focus your mind on one thing, and this is extremely hard for people nowadays. When you start meditating and making it into a habit, you’ll notice a drastic increase in your ability to focus. Maybe in the past, you were the type of person who couldn’t even read two pages of a book without getting sidetracked.


Meditation provides a sense of general well-being. Do you remember that sort of awe and joy you had as a kid when little things in life would excite you? Meditation brings back that sort of mindset, that sort of perspective where you can sit down on a park bench and simply be mind blown by just how beautiful everything around you.

Meditation is an extremely powerful Keystone habit because it in itself is a very very hard habit to stick to, but if you can make it into a habit that you can automatically do every day, it means your levels of willpower will have skyrocket dramatically, and adopting other habits will become a piece of cake.


The third and final keystone is fitness. This includes everything ranging from running to lifting heavy weights to doing calisthenics. Fitness is an extremely powerful keystone because of its intimate relationship with diet.

Researchers have found that most people who start sticking to a fitness regime will often find themselves adjusting their diet as well. Even if they’re told not to, it makes sense because if you’re working your ass off at the gym, you’re less likely to consume junk food right after because of undoing all of your hard work. Because these two habits basically come in a package together, it requires a lot of willpower to maintain. So if you can successfully make them into full-fledged habits you’ll be able to take on smaller habits with ease.


**The habit of fitness and diet has a huge influence on how you feel every single day. **Many people report feeling tired or foggy and often, the problem stems from our diet or our lack of exercise. Once people start adopting these two good habits, they often report feeling much better and if you start feeling better on a day to day basis, it makes it much easier to start adopting other good habits.


This ability to improve your body’s day-to-day function makes fitness and diet an extremely powerful Keystone habit, so again here are the three Keystone habits that we just talked about – reading, meditation, fitness and diet.

Now I know I know there’s dozens of other good habits out there like cold showers, morning rituals, making your bed etc but these three Keystone habits are without a doubt three of the most powerful habits that you can add to your life.

What habits will you be applying to your life today?


2 months ago I started with fitness 2 days / week. I must say that it indeed feels very good. It has a positive impact on how I feel. After work and dinner I always felt very tired. I have an office job, mostly sit the whole day. So there is definitely a lack of day-to-day exercise. Going to fitness, even when I feel Tired, gives me a very energetic feeling afterwards. Also helps with a better sleep at night. I hope I can hold on to this habit for a very long time :)

I noticed these things on myself a few months ago. I am trying to get back in check in at least the 1st and 3rd area you mentioned.
