A toxic habit is something you do that is potentially damaging your mental or physical health. And most of the time, we don’t realize that we might be practicing toxic habits daily.
Although there are hundreds of toxic habits to quit, in today’s post, I am going to share with you a few bad habits that I’ve already experienced. And if you’re practicing any of these habits right now, I encourage you to get rid of them because you deserve to live your best life!
🚫 Negative self-talk
Negative self-talk is a HUGE toxic habit, and you will never be completely happy. A habit to replace negative self-talk is trying positive affirmations. So when you feel it begin to creep into your internal dialogue, remember yourself all the good things you’re capable of.
🚫 Being a pessimist and not believing in yourself
Always expecting the worst scenario it’s a negative attitude. Force yourself to see the positive in everything, tell yourself that things will work out and you can do anything.
If you continuously tell yourself you can’t do something, chances are you won’t. Changing your mindset can be a total game-changer.
🚫 Comparing yourself
This is such a toxic habit that affects our confidence! Please do not compare yourself to others, it’s a waste of time! Instead of letting comparison bring you down, try to accept your own circumstances, or push yourself to work toward the things that you want.
🚫 Not investing in your health
Find time to invest in your health every day! Move your body, drink enough water, take time for self-care, do what you love, get a solid schedule for sleeping, don’t skip meals, fuel your body with rich foods.
🚫 Checking your phone as soon as you wake up
Checking your phone as soon as you wake up is a terrible start to the day. Try to implement new better habits in your morning, do something relaxing that you enjoy instead of scrolling on your phone.
🚫 Focusing on things you can’t control/worry too much
Only focus on the things you actually can control, in your habits, emotions, things you do. There is no point in spending energy and time on things that you can’t control.
Worry doesn’t change the outcome of a situation. It wastes your time and messes up your emotions. When you’re feeling worried about everything, try to write-downs whatever you’re feeling. Then, force yourself to something you like to focus on something else.
🚫 Being unorganized
Find a healthy balance and organize your life. You’ll feel more productive and happy!
🚫 Not being grateful
Instead of focusing on what you don’t have and what you want, focus on what you have right now. Be grateful for the smallest things in life.
🚫 Seeking validation from others
This is a bad habit that you have to definitely give up. You have to do what it’s best for you. Seeking approval from someone in some cases where you want their opinions is okay but to constantly seek validation from them is bad. It will only leave you with a doubting mindset if what you put out there is not met with the expectations you have from it.
Procrastination is a bad habit that needs to go. Complete your tasks that you’ve been trying to put off first, the most difficult ones. And then, reward yourself when all your chores are completed!
