So here comes the time when we change our calendars and give ourselves a reward for surviving the last 365 days – a new year. Every year comes with a new hope. It gives us a chance to start our life from the scratch. Sadly, too often we don’t take this chance and let every year just pass us by like anything. Why not we do something different this time? Let 2017 be remembered for good. Start this year by leaving these toxic things behind and bring a much-needed change to your life.
- Overworking yourself
I don’t know much about you, but I have no idea where the last year went. Why? Because I overworked myself. Don’t make this mistake, my friend.
- Collecting extra stuff
SourceBefore you buy anything from that next “big” sale, just take a step back and ask yourself – Do I really need this?
- Toxic people and bad vibes
SourceNothing good can really come out of a toxic relationship. If you don’t vibe, you don’t vibe. Relationships are supposed to make you happy, not sad.
- Being in your comfort zone
SourceRemember, nothing great can happen to you in your comfort zone. Complacency is for those who want a mediocre life.
- Unplanned spending
SourceJust keep a tap on your cash flow. It is high time you stop living on your credit cards.
SourceThat “I’m going to do it tomorrow” attitude need to go, my friend. Be more active this year. Instead of taking a step back, you should volunteer and try new things.
- Underestimating yourself
There is really nothing worse in this world than not knowing your own worth. No self-hatred for you this year. After all, if you can’t love yourself, how can you expect someone else to love you?
- Following trends unwillingly
SourceYes, I know that’s a thing. Too many of us follow an ongoing trend because we don’t want to be left behind. You know what? Just chuck it! You don’t need to apply a Snapchat filter to look cool.
- Not having enough “me” timeSourceWhile it is good to be with friends and family, you should make an effort to spend some quality time with yourself as well. Take yourself out for a dinner date or simply read yourself a poem. Go ahead! Give it a try.
- Bad eating habits
SourceYour body is a temple and you need to treat it right. There is no harm in eating junk food once a week, but don’t make it a habit. Start exercising and eat fresh and healthy food.
- Deeply-rooted issues
SourceOkay! We all have issues. Try to accept your pitfalls and talk to someone to sort things out. It doesn’t matter if you have a bad temper or if you are having anxiety issues, it is time you face and overcome them.
- Doing it all
SourceMultitasking can never boost your productivity in the long haul. Focus on one step at a time while looking at the big picture.
- Making easy fixes
SourceNo “jugaad” this year. Say goodbye to all those easy fixes you made in the past.
- Having too many regrets
SourceStart saying “yes” to life instead of simply being haunted by all those “what ifs” and “buts”. In the end, you are only going to remember the chances you didn’t take.
Have no regrets, my friend. This year, you are going to have no regret at all!
