What skills can I learn to become a better traveler

I am planning to take a year and travel India (mostly) and maybe a little Nepal and bits of S.E. Asia. I have over a year before my planned departure and would like to start preparing both physically and mentally. What skills can I learn to make me a better traveler.

I am looking for things I can start doing over this time that will prove beneficial for when I start traveling. Some examples I am thinking of.
• Start a walking regiment
• Break in Shoes
• Get used to walking with backpack
• Start learning Hindi
• Learn some knots
I am not looking for packing lists or itinerary help, just physical or mental skills I can start developing now for travel later. Thank You!
