Habits that Every Girl Needs to Break

habits-every-girl-needs-breakAs women, we tend to put a lot on our plates. In fact, it’s one of the reasons we often feel overwhelmed. Admit it – these are habits that you have done, too! And that’s OK. These habits can wear you down every single day, so maybe it is time to break them, for the sake of your sanity and your relationship with your family and friends. 🙂

Trying to be perfect.
Let’s face it, it’s easy to get caught up in the idea of perfection. Trying too hard to achieve that state really backfires and makes you stressed, which causes all sorts of other problems. Striving to be your best and most authentic, happy and productive self is a lot simpler than striving for an idealized and unattainable state. One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.

Underestimating yourself.
Some things just don’t do well when underestimated, especially when it is yourself. Nothing will bring you down quicker than berating yourself. The mind is a superb instrument if used right, but when used incorrectly, it becomes very destructive. Be aware of your mental self-talk. We all talk silently to ourselves in our heads, but we aren’t always conscious of what we’re saying or how it’s affecting us. Taking a step back and really considering these things can eliminate a lot of stress from your daily life! Be assertive and believe in yourself and your talents & abilities. Surround yourself with other women who build up rather than tear down.freetobe
Caring too much about what people think of you.
This one goes along the lines of the perfection mistake, if you’re constantly worrying about what others think of you, your own happiness will be sacrificed for theirs. Although this is something that’s easy to do, avoid it as much as possible! Don’t change, so people will like you. Instead, look at it differently and remember that there is only one you: you are unique, special and perfect in your own way. Treasure your uniqueness. Respect that, and you will be much happier. Be yourself and the right people will love you, and you’ll love yourself more too.

Focusing on the bad in your life.
When bad things happen, and unfortunately, they will happen, it’s common to get stuck thinking about them. However, if you really concentrate on all the good things in your life, you will have an easier time finding good things to be thankful for. Not all the puzzle pieces of life will seem to fit together at first, but in time you’ll realize they do. So thank the things that didn’t work out, because they just made room for the things that will. And thank the ones who walked away from you, because they just made room for the ones who won’t. Worrying too much, remembering horrible things or not moving on are all simple mistakes to make, but if you can overcome these terrible mistakes, you can overcome anything.wake-up
