If you want to make the most of 2020, it’s about time you start quitting the toxic habits that only bring you down.

Toxic habits not only harm you but these also stop you from becoming successful. Change is something that’s necessary if you want to reach your goals and dreams in life.

Quit these toxic habits if you want to change your life for the better!

Dwelling on your past mistakes and failures

This is only holding you back. Failure isn’t bad. It’s dwelling on it that makes it harmful to yourself.

If you’re still thinking about your past mistakes, it’s about time you move on and know that it’s okay to fail and make mistakes as long as you learn from them.

The next time you find yourself dwelling on your past mistakes, write them down and reflect on what you can do to avoid doing it again. Learn and be a better you.

Checking your phone when you wake up

I’m guilty of doing this. It’s hard when you’re a digital nomad and your job is fully online.

I’m still trying to avoid checking my phone as soon as I wake up. I did notice that not checking my phone helps start my day on a positive note.

I don’t think about work for a few hours and it feels awesome. I can get to journaling, eating breakfast, meditating and doing exercise before I finally tackle my tasks at work for the day.

And guess what? I also feel a little more productive.

So tomorrow when you wake up, start your day by not checking your phone first.

Comparing yourself

Stop comparing yourself to other people. You’re just bringing negativity into your life when you do. You might even have feelings of unworthiness, not being good enough, loneliness and so on which might lead to self-hatred.

Instead of moving forward to achieving your dreams, comparing yourself to others is restricting you to go a step further into realizing your goals.

Next time you compare yourself to others, remember that your path is different from theirs. You’re unique and you have your own timing. Not everyone achieves their dreams at the same time.

Not getting enough sleep

Depriving yourself of sleep is depriving yourself of the ability to do work at your full capability. Your immune system becomes weak, you’re more grumpy, and you’ll have a hard time understanding things.

Start building good habits by sleeping on time, and avoiding coffee a few hours before bed time. If you’re having a hard time sleeping, you can refer to our list of sleeping tips.

Surrounding yourself with toxic people

People around you affect you more than you think you do. When you surround yourself with toxic people, you are letting negativity and drama in your life.

Starting today, get rid of toxic people. Don’t feel guilty about it. You’re only harming yourself by being with them. Instead, start surrounding yourself with people who bring you happiness and positivity. It helps a lot.
