10 Things You Need to Stop Doing


1. Putting off exercise. Our body works on the “use it or lose it” principle. If your muscles are underused, they will turn to flab. And weight gain can lead to loss of good health.
2. Brushing your teeth in a hurry. Research shows that an unhealthy mouth can contribute to heart disorders.
3. Wolfing down your meals. That’s the mistake most “busy” people make. Eat mindfully—think of meal-time as your gift of time to yourself.
4. Being afraid to delegate. It’s good to want perfection, but don’t let it obsess you to the extent that you trust no one to do anything better than you!
5. Saying ‘No’ when you want to say ‘Yes.’
6. Saying ‘Yes’ when you want to say ‘No.’
7. Checking your email and surfing Facebook constantly. The more socially connected we are, the more disconnected we become from real people. What would you rather have—550 “faceless” Facebook friends, or 5 close friends with whom you meet regularly?
8. Stepping out looking untidy. Long ago, my mother said, “Remember to look neat and tidy, even if you are stepping out to buy a loaf of bread.” I think it was among the best pieces of advice I have ever received.
9. Doing too much for others. If you neglect yourself, there will come a time when you simply won’t have the energy or will to do anything for others.
10. Not doing enough for others. Do you live in a “me-me-me” world? Step out, and put a smile on someone’s face. It feels so good!
