Four Habits You Need to Leave Behind in 2016 Posted on 09 Dec 10:43 , 0 comments

Reflecting back on this year, what would you do differently? Did some of your New Year’s Resolutions fall by the wayside? Has life been too busy for you to indulge in some much-needed self-care?

If the answer is “Yes,” it’s time to rethink your priorities. After all, you can’t take care of all of the obligations being given to you if you’re not able to take time off for yourself. Rest is restorative and essential to good health. If you find your To Do List getting longer with each passing day, it’s time to change that once and for all.

The four habits you need to leave behind in 2016 are:

  1. The glorification of busyness. People think that you should be rewarded for being busy. It’s like a superpower that humans harness. Perpetual busyness leads to stress and illness, two things you don’t want in your life.
  2. The self-sacrificing scheduling. Stop creating a schedule that leaves out time for self-care. You need time to rest and rejuvenate your mind and body. Otherwise, you burn out quickly.
  3. The rushing of routines. Routines are part of the sacred experience of being human. They should be followed carefully and respectfully. After all, it’s a way of connecting to the things that matter most to you-your health, your family, and your passions.
  4. The maven of maybes. Be more affirmative. Guard your free time. Start saying “No,” to obligations that don’t fit your schedule or values as a person.

Approach the New Year with a fresh perspective. Start replacing old habits with ones that nourish the mind, body, and soul. Rather than drain the proverbial well, fill it with things that make you look and feel your very best.
