“Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy
to be broken”- Warren Buffet.
Our habits define the structure of our lives. It’s 2019 and it’s time we know what needs a change in us and start implementing immediately. 10 Habits to Quit in 2019:
1. Spending too much time on Social Media.
On an average we spend about 2 hours 22 minutes per day on Social Media platforms as suggested by https://www.digitalinformationworld.com/2019/01/how-much-time-do-people-spend-social-media-infographic.html
Reducing this habit can lead to a more productive 2 hours plus in life everyday which can be utilised for meaningful things which will help us progress healthily.
2. Overspending at restaurants, clubs, lounges etc
Every weekend you tend to hit the latest place in town so you don’t suffer from FOMO. This causes a big hole in your pockets and creates a havoc on your monthly budgets. Resist it guys, you eat to live and not live to eat!
3. Not taking your workouts seriously.
Giving excuses to self about not hitting the gym is a common phenomena. We all tend to tell ourselves why we need not go to the gym on a particular day. Break the monotony and see the rewards a disciplined life gives you.
4.Not spending enough time with your family.
We have enough time to prioritise work, social obligations, friends, colleagues but we miss out on the most important people in our lives. Family comes above all. Make time for them before its too late!
5.Not fighting the feeling of laziness.
Laziness has killed more dreams than wars. Stop giving up on everything you want to do but aren’t doing because you’re simply LAZY. Once you start seeing the positive results, laziness will be dealt with. Till then, hustle each day, drive laziness away!
Stop being too hard on yourself. You’re not God. You are bound to make mistakes everyday. Start learning the lesson and bring about positive changes in your life rather than cursing yourself away to death.
7.Being too judgemental of others.
Let’s not judge people on what the eyes see. Sometimes the truth is something completely different. Each person has a different story so judging without knowing the entire story is unfair. What works for you might not work for someone else. Learn to EMPATHISE…!
8.Working overtime ignoring your health.
Being ambitious is great. But if the ambition takes total control over our lives, so much so that we can’t even look after ourselves; is it really worth it? Health is Wealth is a proverb for a reason. If you look after yourself, your body will look after your ambitions..!
9.Waiting for Weekends to have a life.
If only weekends make you feel liberated and happy, your soul is on the death bed. What is the point of living for 2 days a week and not having fun on the rest 5 days? Learn the art of managing your time well to avoid the “weekday blues”. Look forward to each day that you’ve been blessed with.
10. Giving up too easily.
I don’t really know if this has become a trait with the majority nowadays. It is so difficult to hold on. People are so impatient that giving up feels comforting and easy. Having an attitude of ” I can never give up” is what’s in.. Try it and see how you win..
So i hope we all take a step forward to change these habits in 2019 and live a better life with smiles, self belief, discipline and the love of our families!
