Habit #1- Your Feelings Give Depth to Your Experience
Many things may seem stiff or one-dimensional until you feel them, and they come to life. Most people ignore their feelings because they are too busy conquering future goals.
However, your feelings in the present moment are giving you direction- they either move you forward or hold you back.
The way you interpret your world is the way your life unfolds. Make sure that interpretation isn’t based on a flat picture but a deeper meaning instead.
FEEL- GOOD HABIT
Do something you enjoy and briefly pay attention to how you feel from time to time.
Feelings aren't meant to be analyzed; they are meant to be felt.
Disengage from any internal dialogue and instead feel the good vibes explode within you.
Habit #2- Take the Hassle Out of your Hustle
You can hustle hard so that you can feel better later, or you can give in to your inner passion right now.
Doesn’t that sound more rewarding?
The cure for this hangover is not less work, it’s feeling better about the work you do. When you start to feel good about your work, you will have more clarity & time will fly by.
When you immerse yourself in the work you are doing at the moment, it moves forward through your inspiration, not your effort.
Immerse yourself in your work. Think less about the goal of getting it done in the future and more about how you feel doing it right now.
When you feel inspired, you know you're doing your best work.
Habit #3- Compassion conquers stress
Kindness and compassion will change the world.
The only reason we have conflict is we can’t see other perspectives. Our way is good, and someone else's is not.
It’s because our brain can’t see conflict and compassion (understanding) at the same time. They are polar opposites. However, conflict cannot move forward until we understand each other's perspectives.
If you can soothe conflict with compassion, it will reveal insight. Compassion turns on the learning center in your brain, which allows you to move forward. You can learn from differing perspectives instead of having to fight against them.
Compassion turns off your fight or flight stress cycle and turns you towards hope, opportunity or potential.
It’s all you ever wanted.
The next time you think you are right and someone else is wrong, search for understanding. You could consider another person's perspective to balance your own, and this would definitely help you.
But it would be easier to go straight to the source. Soothe the conflict inside you with self-compassion first, and you will be able to relate to how the other person feels instantly.
It’s not about right or wrong; it’s about understanding.
You both want the same thing anyway. Everyone wants hope, opportunity, compassion, happiness or success. If you both want this, why not unite and go and get it?
Together we are stronger.
Habit #4-Cut off the bad feelings, you cut off the good ones too.
Repressing emotion is never helpful. Your emotions are indicators of how you are experiencing your life.
Unless you are observing the way you feel right now, you are likely analyzing or judging your feelings instead of feeling them. There is a wealth of information through your emotions, tap into it by feeling it, not thinking about it.
It’s a great habit to routinely observe your feelings without analyzing them.
It’s best to take on a broader perspective and just notice your feelings ( happy, sad, grateful, angry, mad etc). Don’t attach any sort of assessment to it ( ie- it’s bad that I feel bad).
Definitely don’t try to assess why you feel bad, just feel it. Be curious. Through awareness, you are breaking the connection between thought and feeling.

When you feel bad it’s always the repetitive thought that keeps those feelings alive.
