3 Bad Habits You Need to Break Right Now

February 9, 2017

Career Advice


Small changes can make a big difference, and the following three examples prove this point. Sometimes we go through our day on autopilot. We don’t stop to pay attention to how and why we do it. Take a look at your day-to-day schedule. Which bad habit will you break first?

1. Bringing your phone to bed.
The last thing many people often see at night is a social media feed on their phones. Not only does the blue light emitted from electronic devices interfere with your sleeping patterns, but checking your phone means you’re not doing something that’s a better use of your time–reading. Instead, pick up a Kindle or a book.

2. Hanging out with people who don’t make you feel great.
It’s often said that you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with. If you find that one of those people is a complainer, someone who makes you feel bad about yourself, or a Negative Nancy, stop spending time with them. Life hack: you don’t have to be friends with people you don’t like.

3. Saying yes to everything.
If you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed and the lines on your forehead are becoming progressively deeper, it’s not time to get Botox–it’s time to start saying “No,” without feeling guilty. Your sleep, your happiness, and your priorities should always come first. Don’t let outside sources change that.
