Stop Doing These 4 Things Right Now for a Better Life
Everyone wants a better, more comfortable, and more meaningful life. The hard part is learning how to achieve it. Society teaches people to work hard, stay focused and be productive in order to be happy. However, many of the daily sacrifices you make to improve your life may be impeding your efforts. If you’re trying to reach your goals and coming up short, reconsider your approach and stop doing the things holding you back from reaching your full potential. Find out how Manifesting Consciousness can help you on the path to success and a better life.
1. Settling for Less
Let’s face it – it’s easier to settle for less than to work toward goals that may be tough to attain. That includes staying put in a dead-end job, a rocky relationship, toxic friendships, and a poor financial situation. When it comes to switching gears to going for a better position in life, your mindset determines the outcome. Perhaps you’re afraid of the unknown. Maybe obstacles standing in your way seem insurmountable.
Regardless of whatever holds you back, you deserve to do yourself a favor and seek something better, something that aligns with your values and brings you a sense of accomplishment. When you find yourself in a rut, it’s time to move on to better opportunities. Travis and Deniece

2. Comparing Yourself to Others
According to research professor and TED speaker Brené Brown, self-comparison leads to social conformity and competition rather than individuality. When you’re focused on outdoing the other members of your social group, you lose sight of who you really are, and your self-worth declines. When you start to worry about your rank among your friends, peers, and neighbors, turn your attention inward and celebrate your unique contributions to your community. Fulfill yourself by being creative, open-minded, and different.
3. Disregarding Your Needs
Making time for yourself can be hard, especially when you are busy with work, school, and/or family obligations. It may seem like there aren’t enough hours in the day for “me” time, but ignoring self-care can exacerbate stress and impact your overall wellness. Some tips for managing your time effectively include:
- Maximizing your efficiency during your most productive hours and not procrastinating
- Organizing your life, planning, and making a to-do list for each day
- Replacing bad energy in your home with a positive environment
- Setting realistic goals, implementing time limits, and removing non-essential tasks
- Taking breaks, assessing and prioritizing your mental state
- Focusing on what matters and learning how to say no
4. Ignoring Your Health
When you neglect your health, the physical, mental, and emotional consequences only worsen over time, potentially leading to chronic suffering that is difficult to manage and overcome. Making wellness a way of life and prioritizing your health allows you to feel your best and prevents disease from taking control of your life. Pay attention to your overall well-being by adopting a diet and exercise regimen, regularly checking in with your mental status, and, as Verywell Health explains, establishing a quality sleep routine.
Additionally, it’s important to track any changes or oddities happening with your body or mind and inform your doctor. Attend routine appointments with your medical and behavioral health care providers, submit to recommended medical tests, and heed expert advice for taking care of yourself.
If you’re guilty of one or more of the items on this list, you likely feel the negative effects in your daily life. It’s time to act on your own behalf, take control of your priorities, and change your life for the better.
