5 Daily Habits Highly Successful People Can't Live Without

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE: BRK.A) (NYSE: BRK.B)) is still overseeing multi-billion-dollar deals even at the tender age of 86. So, how does he do it? According to CNBC, there are five daily habits he and other highly successful business leaders can't live without.

1. Hobbies

Research has found that dedicating time to your hobby leads to higher satisfaction in life and a lower chance of burning out. Buffett enjoys playing the ukulele, an odd hobby for some but most certainly to each their own.

Here is a video of Buffett singing Frank Sinatra's "My Way."

2. Read

Buffett reads a handful of publications each morning, including the Wall Street Journal. Fellow billionaire Bill Gates reads every night, with a goal of reading 50 books a year, which averages out to around one book per week, every week.

Research has found that people who read are engaged in mentally stimulating activities which also slows memory declines compared to those who don't.

3. Exercise

Billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson wakes up at 5 a.m. every morning to work out. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL)'s CEO Tim Cook is also known for sticking to a very strict and consistent schedule of working out.

Working out is not only good for the body but good for the mind; research shows a person's creativity is boosted by an average of 60 percent when regular exercise is a part of daily life.

4. Meditate

Taking just 30 minutes a day to meditate could stimulate parts of the brain that help people cope with paying attention and can also help in stress management.

5. Yoga

Studies have found that practicing yoga can reduce fatigue, help people manage stress and can also benefit a person's immune system.
