You Should Give Up 6 Habits If You Want to Have a Better Life


From time to time, we sit down and think about what we should do to have a better life. We reflect on our past actions and their results, our current situation and what we should do next.

While these are logical steps, we neglect the fact that if we are adding things into our lives, it means we need to take things out. After all, we have a limited amount of time and energy in a day. If we want to start doing something, we first need to stop having those habits that only make our lives worse.

You Should Give Up 6 Habits

We often don’t realize how affected we are by our habits. Because everything seems to be on autopilot, you have to be very careful to notice what kind of habits you have. So, if you want to have a better life, you should first give up those habits that make your life difficult.

Here is the list of 6 Habits You Should Give Up If You Want to Have a Better Life :

1. Stop looking for the perfect time to start something

We fall into the trap of thinking that there is a perfect time to pursue a goal. Maybe we wait until our careers have reached a certain level until we’ve raised enough money or someone has given us permission to do something. And as long as some circumstances are better than others, the stars won’t align to create the perfect scenario.

There will never be a perfect time because there will always be something that will bother you or get in your way. Similarly, there will never be a perfect time to start working on your idea, try something new or learn something new. The best time is right now. Along the way, you will make mistakes and continue to learn.

2. Stop doing things just to be accepted

When you try to change just to be accepted, you can only pretend for so long. After a while, you’ll get tired. Maybe you pursue a career that doesn’t suit your personality because it’s too famous, or maybe you stay in a bad situation for fear of change.

The more time and effort you invest, the harder it will be to quit. Be honest with yourself. If you have to change your interests, values and beliefs to fit in somewhere, you’re in the wrong place.

3. Stop blaming others

Sometimes it really is someone else’s fault when something bad has happened. But what can we do? Blaming others is a pointless exercise that solves nothing. Instead, it creates more anger and does nothing to move you forward.

If someone has wronged you, but those bitter feelings aside and move on. Forgive. Focus instead on your actions. When you start taking action, you become more responsible for what happens in your life.

4. Stop stressing about things you have no control over

While there are an infinite number of things you can worry about, there are a finite number of things you can control. Remember that you cannot change what others say or think about you. You cannot decide what others do. But what you can do is how you react and interpret that situation. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it?

If you want to have a better life, you can be sure that you don’t have to interpret everything as negative and that you don’t have to react compulsively and badly.

5. Stop neglecting the present

Our minds are so busy wandering in all sorts of places that we forget what is right in front of us. We get caught up in our memories, aspirations and dreams. In the process, we misuse the time we have and miss the present.

We all create dreams and tell ourselves that when we get to that point, everything will be fine and we will be happy. But if you stop for a moment and look back, it seems that in the present you are where you wanted to be when you were in the past, but perhaps you are dreaming of the future and feel, that something is still missing. So, try to understand that wherever you end up you will still be in the present and if you don’t enjoy the present now, when do you think you will start to?

6. Stop insisting on old mistakes

We all have times in our past when we think we could have done things better or differently. From time to time I wonder if things would have gone better if I had made different choices.

However, I keep telling myself not to get stuck in the past. Instead of reflecting on things you can’t change, use your past mistakes to think about how you would do things today. Failures can be used to your advantage if you’re willing to turn them into lessons for your future.
