5 Habits I’m Determined To Stop In 2018

We are over 2 weeks into 2018 and I’ve been ill quite a bit, however it has given me a chance a chance to think about the habits that I want to stop this year, I’m beyond determined to do my thing, to achieve this year & be the best person I can be. Not only that I’ve noticed that these bad habits are having an impact on my physical and mental health, so stopping these things will ultimately make me feel so much better and I know this year will get better.

Avoiding things 

I’m actually the worst at avoiding things, I mean if there was a prize for the person who would try to avoid something the most it would be me. I have my to do list going, I attempt to be one of those people who are ridiculously organised but sometimes it literally doesn’t happen. I look at it and like, not today, maybe tomorrow and it just continues to roll. I’m definitely trying to be a more organised person and the go getter kind of person.

Comparing myself to others

It’s January and I feel like there is a ridiculous amount of pressure on people to diet, I mean I am plus size, people see me and I have even heard people say I need to go on a diet or the old favourite of “who ate all the pies” I mean seriously? My self worth isn’t defined by the size on my clothes, when I see others who are different sizes, they’re gorgeous! I mean inside and out, comparison is the thief of joy, I am 100% happy with my life, with my body, bigger or smaller, I’ll be happy as long as I am healthy.

Caring what others think

This kind of follows on from the last one, I mean when I hear something bad, I tend to brood on it and take it very much to heart, I’m that kind of person that wears her heart on her sleeve. I mean I might come across kind of tough at first, but do you know what I’m quite soft when it comes to it. If people have an opinion, let them have it, but if I don’t care about them, why am I worried about their opinion? The people who matter and love me, those are the opinions that are important to me.

Overthinking so much

We all have those nights right? We lay there and overthink every situation that could ever happen in our lives? It gets us stuck on the rabbit wheel of life, it can sometimes stop me from doing the things that I want to do because of that, and in reality it shouldn’t, but we live and learn right? Now is the time that I get off that annoying rabbit wheel and tell my mind to give it a rest and do what makes me happy!

Stop trying to achieve perfection

I’m a bit of a perfectionist, I try to work so hard at everything in my life, whether it is my blog, my home life, my marriage, basically anything that walks into my life. Nothing in life is ever perfect, in fact it is the imperfections in our lives that make it interesting! Perfection isn’t the be all and end all of everything, happiness is much more important than perfection!

    YES Aime! All these things are so important to recognise when they’re getting out of hand. I so hope you can manage to drop them to some extent this year! Overthinking is a big one for me too xxx

    I think everyone’s guilty of these babe, it isn’t just you! I definitely need to get out of the habit of overthinking, I can’t stand the thought of one person not liking me, even when I know I haven’t done anything to make them feel that way! It’s so funny how our minds work! xo

    Those are all things I struggle with as well! Looks like you have a positive way of looking at things like body image though! I know there is so much pressure out there to be skinny and perfect, but there seems to be less focus on what’s actually important and it’s whether or not you’re happy! So if you’re doing things this year to make yourself happy, then that’s all anyone should ask for! Also, life is all about the progress and not perfection, so don’t be so hard on yourself!

      Exactly, I think everyone is so focused on perfection that they forget about all the other important things in life! xxxxx

    I’ve got an amazing quote about overthinking – “if you’re not going to worry about it in 5 years’ time, why would you spend 5 minutes worrying about it now?” I know what you mean though, ironically I overthink too much. These are some great goals and I wish you the best of luck achieving them!

    I’d love to stop overthinking, and to stop caring what others think of me. I get so self conscious, I won’t even go swimming because I’m worried about what people will think of my body size!

      Overthinking is my downfall, I’m definitely learning not to care less about what others think! xxxx
