Bad Habits. We all have some…
However, they can also be the downfall of our existence, get rid of these following habits and you are more thank likely to be happier.
Sometimes life can be hard. There is no denying this fact. However, you can make your life easier just by removing some poor habits. You may look at your life now and think that you can’t do anymore but have a little look down this list and see if they affect you.
Complaining – No matter how much you complain, nothing will ever happen. When you complain, all you are doing is spreading negative energy and putting yourself (as well as everyone else around you) in a bad mood. If you want to make a change, go ahead and act.
Time-Wasting – You go home after a long day’s work, eat dinner, and then crash in front of the TV until it is time to go to bed; just think about all the things you could be doing in this time. You could be studying towards a new career, exercising to stay fit, learning a new skill, or absolutely anything. A good way to see where you are losing time is to keep a diary and then review it at the end of each week; you will be surprised at how much time you waste.
Negative Thinking – One day, write down all the negative thoughts you receive; you will be shocked at the result because you have probably just got used to it. When you realize just how negatively you have been thinking, you can do something about it to become more positive.
Not Planning – Let’s ask a question – how do you know where you are going if you have no plan? It becomes so easy to waste time when you don’t have a plan because you don’t know if it is progressing you or not. If you work out a plan to achieve your goals, decisions will be made for you and you will know the next steps to take to progress.
Too Much Phone Time – Technology has advanced dramatically in recent years, but you still need to look up now and then; sometimes we spend all day at work and then all night looking at our phones. Why not turn your phone off now and then to spend quality time with those around you?
Lack of Sleep – Sleep is vital because it refreshes both your body and your mind allowing you to concentrate the next day. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, you are giving yourself no chance to do anything worthwhile the next day; the more you do it, the more it becomes a habit and the longer you will struggle.
Staying Comfortable – How are you ever going to progress if you don’t leave your comfort zone? The comfort zone is great (hence the name), but if you don’t push yourself every now and then, you will never progress and become the person you want to be.
These are seven simple bad habits and ones that can be easily changed. It is all too easy to say that we are ‘fed up’ with life or that we want to ‘grow’ but we are holding ourselves back with these poor habits. If you want to progress, change your habits. We’re on this journey together!
