7 Bad Habits to Give Up to be Happyptdoctor
Are your habits and routines sucking up your happiness?
Today is the perfect day to give up…
1. Worrying about… everything.
Tip: To jolt yourself out of worry, ask yourself what you can do “right now” to make your life more pleasant and then do that!
2. Constant, deliberate, people-pleasing.
Tip: To combat people-pleasing behavior, learn to say “no.” Often times when you say “no” to someone else, you are really saying “yes” to YOU.
Tip: When you feel yourself getting ready to procrastinate, silently say “stop” to yourself, refocus and begin again by taking calculated action that will lead to the results you desire.
4. Living in the past.
Tip: If you are harboring resentment, anger, frustration or other negative feelings from your past, don’t ignore these feelings. Do something constructive about it so that you can move into the present.
5. Always looking past the present moment in anticipation of the next.
Tip: Now is the only time you have. Now is life. Make sure you are fully experiencing it.
6. Judging others.
Tip: Understand that we are all part of the collective human race. We are one. Your joy is my joy and your suffering is my suffering.
7. Comparing your story to everyone else’s.
Tip: You are unique. No matter how hard you try to be like someone else, you will never be them, and you shouldn’t want to be.
