5 Things to Quit

How often do we let any of these five things control an aspect of our lives?

Stop trying to please everyone else before you’ve considered your own happiness. Focus on you, and lift yourself up because you deserve it.

Change doesn’t have to be scary. You wouldn’t eat the same thing for breakfast everyday (or maybe you do I’m not judging). But think about all of the amazing different types you could allow yourself to enjoy. Start to consider your thinking towards change and embrace it with excitement!

Intrusive thoughts can keep us prisoners to our past. My depression makes me experience lots of this and can leave me feeling tired, low and just bleh. Since recently beginning Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) through my local IAPT service, I’m beginning to understand that my thoughts, behaviours and physical symptoms are all linked. I’m starting to become more familiar with being present here and now. You are not your past. You’re you, and you deserve to be able to enjoy your future.

It’s easy to compare ourselves to everyone else, but it takes a true warrior to embrace their imperfections and celebrate them. Loving yourself can feel like a difficult task, but it doesn’t need to be. Spend a few moments a day thinking about things you’re grateful for. Practising gratitude can be one of the first steps to living a more wholesome life.

Overthinking can bring about feelings of uncertainty and worry. But this doesn’t mean that we have to bound by those thoughts. Getting into the habit of practising daily meditation (I like the simplicity of @headspace) can allow us to practise identifying those thoughts when they pop up and allow ourselves to not become overwhelmed.

If you’re suffering from any of those five, remember that you are not alone. You’re fighting the good fight, and you’re gonna win this because I believe in you.

Have a happy Thursday and enjoy the sunshine everyone! ☀️
