10 things to give up to change lives for the better

1. Alcohol

Especially if it’s the only thing your social life rests on. Or if it’s vital for you to relax, have sex with someone, or just feel better.

It is worth thinking: what do you lack without it? What prevents you from just enjoying life? And work on getting it. After all, it’s unlikely you’ve ever heard from anyone, “I’m so sorry I took that break and didn’t drink for 10 years!”

2. Smoking

For many, smoking is still a “social glue” – but how else to keep in touch with colleagues or get used to a new job? And also a way (allegedly) to cope with stress. Needless to say, the harm from this method is much more than good?

3. Comparing yourself with others

If smoking is harmful to physical health, then stress negatively affects the psyche. And one of the sources of stress is that we constantly compare ourselves to others. With friends and family, with celebrities and random people on the street, and, of course, with more successful peers.

Maybe enough is enough? Maybe it’s time to go back to yourself — your life, your job, your experience, your body? Comparison with others does not lead to anything good – remember it the next time you want to do it.

4. Meticulous study of your reflection in the mirror

As you walk past the mirror, can’t you help but stop to appreciate the changed curves of your body? Carefully peering at your reflection in the elevator, and on the street, you can not safely pass by the shop window?

Pullover. First, hardly anything has changed from the last time you looked at yourself. Secondly, all mirrors are different, none will give a complete and reliable idea of how you really look. So it’s time to give up this practice and think about what’s inside of you.

5. Insufficient water consumption

It’s time to start treating yourself like a plant: you need water and sunlight in the same way. And, if you forget about it, it is worth reminding yourself that it’s time to drink water – for example, every couple of hours during the day. It is also useful to keep bottles or jugs of clean drinking water throughout the house.

6. Fixate on what you didn’t do

Imagine the situation: you came to a yoga class and three minutes after it began, you remembered that you forgot to transfer money to the contractor who did the work for you. What do you do – interrupt the practice and go out to transfer the payment? Or will you think about it for the remaining 57 minutes instead of doing why you came?

There are many things that our restless mind does not want to leave alone. And it’s very toxic to life.

7. Attitude to self-care as another “business”

Yes, taking care of yourself is very important, but do not treat it as another task or project. It should be a pleasure, certainly not another duty. Take small steps: do not forget to slow down and regulate breathing, drink water, find reasons for joy. Such small actions sooner or later lead to big changes.

8. Self-indigence

Cellulite or wrinkles, not high enough income or lack of personal life, overeating, and mistakes of the past – we will always find something to shame ourselves for. It’s time to stop feeling guilty about who you are, what kind of person you are, what your needs, desires and abilities are. Yes, it is easier said than done, but this is the only way to feel freer and happier.

9. Apologies

Not for everything, of course, but only for the fact that you do not meet someone’s expectations, do not justify other people’s hopes, and generally live on this planet. Struggle your shoulders and recognize that you are already good, that you are enough, and you are not obliged to ask anyone for forgiveness – of course, except when you really hurt or offended another.

10. Consumption

It’s not just about food and shopping, it’s also about content. Instagram and TikTok, Facebook and Netflix, YouTube, and endless news consumption are like the fast food we feed to the brain.

Try just to sit in silence, breathe, be alone. Allow the brain to occupy itself – you will see, this will lead to the birth of new interesting ideas.
