8 THINGS PEOPLE DO THAT MAKE IT HARDER TO BECOME HAPPIER

A lot of the things that are preventing you from finding happiness aren’t the things you lack, but the things you continue to hang onto even when they only trap you. Here’s how experts reveal 8 things to let go of in order to become happier.

EXCUSES

People make excuses all the time for why they’re not doing their best, why they’re not snatching up an opportunity, or why they had to give something up. While it’s fine to know your limits and understand rationally when it’s time to step away, it’s not fine to use excuses as a stand-in for a valid reason.

FOOD SHAME

A lot of people have anxious or worried thoughts about their diet. If you’ve been counting calories, feeling guilty about eating less healthy treats, and denying even tiny sweets only to cave in to cravings and binge much later, it’s time to let go of food shame!

NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

Many of us have negative thoughts, and they can weigh down and disrupt positive thinking fairly quickly. Learning to release and let go of that negativity can work wonders for you and your personal progress!

THE NEED TO SAY “YES”

Are you often overwhelmed with all the things you’ve committed to, promises you’ve made, and so-called favors you’re carrying out? It’s time to learn to let go of the need to please others – so you can begin by saying “no” every once in a while.

SOCIAL MEDIA RELIANCE

Social media lets people present the very best sides of themselves, often leading to feelings of: depression, validation desire, social anxiety or pressure, fear of missing out, envy and inadequacy. In fact, numerous studies have found concerning links between poor mental health and social media usage, indicating that in excess and unfiltered, a lot of social media can ruin your positive thinking.

COMPARISONS

Every human being on this planet is going through their own personal growth, and most of them don’t share their setbacks and struggles with the world. As such, if you constantly look for people who seem to be doing better than you, you’ll always find them, and you’ll always drag yourself down in the process.

UNHEALTHY HABITS

Most people are fully aware when something they do isn’t the healthiest, but they continue anyway because it seems harmless enough. Unfortunately, some remnants of guilt often remain, and those bits can build up into stress. And even those who don’t feel that guilt significantly aren’t immune to the negative effects that come with those habits anyway!

THE NEED FOR CONSTANT COMFORT

Do you tend to stay within your comfort zone at all times? There’s nothing wrong with relaxing and enjoying what’s familiar, but being uncomfortable shouldn’t be something you view as inherently bad. Sometimes, the fear of leaving that zone of perceived safety may be what’s preventing you from becoming the happiest that you can be!
